"Ignorance is the parent of fear", Ilir Alimehmeti shows which variant is more dominant: Delta does not allow the spread of "Mu"
Written by SOT.COM.AL 15 Shtator 2021
The "Mu" variant of COVID-19 increased the fear of citizens in many countries. But epidemiologist Ilir Alimehmeti says that "Delta" dominates the "Mu" variant and does not allow its spread.
The doctor says that "the virus does not know Greek, so the naming of variants with Greek letters is not necessarily reflected in higher aggressiveness or infectivity" reassuring citizens.
"Ignorance is the parent of fear"
Cit.: Herman Melville (1819-1891)
As soon as a variant of SARS-CoV-2 is baptized with a Greek letter a new wave of media coverage begins my friends!
This time it was Mu's turn.
Let's take a look together!
Using the official GISAID platform and data we can see that:
the Mu variant is widespread in Colombia and surrounding states in northwestern South America (the Mu variant in red).
But they do not show any significant percentage of any of:
other South American countries,
European countries, or
North American states.
The Mu variant first appeared on January 7, 2021, while
The Delta variant appeared later, around February 2021.
But the Delta (green) variant became dominant worldwide within a few months, reducing the circulation of all other variants.
While the Mu variant is not able to show this dominance.
Dominanca e Deltës ndaj Mu-së vërehet edhe për faktin që sapo ka hyrë në qarkullim ka ulur përqindjen e variantit Mu në Amerikën Jugore.
Pasi hyri në korrik 2021 në Kolumbi varianti Delta ka filluar të zërë vend, fillimisht në kurriz të varianteve lambda dhe gama, por ka filluar një tkurrje e lehtë edhe e variantit Mu.
Në Brazil shohim shumë qartë që varianti Mu është pothuajse inekzistent, pasi shfaqja e tij ndodhi njëkohësisht me variantin Delta dhe qartësisht u dominua prej këtij të fundit.
Në Europë vëzhgohen me interes Britania e Madhe që bën nivele shumë të larta sekuencimesh gjenetike të varianteve, Spanja për marrëdhëniet e ngushta me ish-kolonitë spanjolle dhe Portugalia për marrëdhëniet e ngushta me Brazilin.
Britania e Madhe pothuajse nuk ka pasur asnjë ndikim nga varianti Mu, krejtësisht i padukshëm në grafik.
Spain has had few Mu cases from May to July 2021, when the full dominance of the Delta variant was established.
Portugal has almost no case with the Mu variant.
We can briefly conclude that:
Delta seems to dominate the Mu variant and does not allow its spread, and
The virus does not know Greek, so naming variants with Greek letters is not necessarily reflected in higher aggressiveness or infectivity.
