Share

What happened: The Natio­nal Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has confirmed that different COVID-19 variants including Delta (Indian), Beta (South African), and Alpha (UK) have been detected in Pakistan. Such variants have been present in the country since May as per their study.

Details: The NCOC is monitoring these variants in Pakistan through whole-genome sequen­cing of Covid-19 patients’ samples. The results are then shared with Field Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Division of NIH so that effective response can be taken such as quarantine and contact tracing. The need to wear masks, avoid large crowds and getting vaccinated are important steps to curb the spread of the virus even now.
