Coronavirus Becomes Weaker In India? True or False

Ankita Chetana |Mar 31, 2020

Research on Covid-19 genomes by the New Delhi-based ICGEB has shown different features of coronavirus in different geographical areas.

While coronavirus pandemic has remained to destroy worldwide, the latest research shows that the Indian genome is one in a million mutating. This needs to be on further studies to prove that it can have an impact on coronavirus.

The research on Covid-19 genomes was implemented by the New Delhi-based International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) in different countries including the US, India, Nepal, Italy, and Wuhan in China. It aims at identifying the considerable genomic characteristics of coronavirus.

According to the analysis by the Government of India, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), and the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), only a single host microRNA named 'hsa-miR-27b' targets India coronavirus uniquely.

Dr. Dinesh Gupta said to IANS: "The country names, in this case, indicate where the genome sequences are submitted from. Of the mutations are in the genes that code for proteins important for binding, entry and/or replication, they may affect the survival of the virus."

Gupta continued her saying: "The microRNAs are present in all human beings. 'hsa-miR-27b' is one of the six antiviral microRNAs that can potentially bind to virus genes and affect its activity." While the researcher stated: "In our study, which is a purely computational one, we predicted that this microRNA binds to the SARS-CoV2 genome submitted from India."

Otherwise, the research team claimed that it's too early to confirm that coronavirus in India is less virulent as only a 'high coverage sequence' appears in the Indian context.

Today, the infected cases rose to 1,251 cases in India including foreign citizens. As per what was observed, each genome contains a unique mutation. Only the genomes in Wuhan and Nepal are 100 percent similar. Gupta said that we need to remain social distance and widespread tests to identify the infected people and prevent the coronavirus outbreak over India.
