Scientists in France on Tuesday announced the discovery of a new Coronavirus variant  IHU. Announcement came amid alarming rise of positive cases of the new coronavirus variant Omicron. Named IHU, the B.1.640.2 variant was discovered by the academics at institute IHU Mediterranee Infection. According to the researchers, the new variant contains  46 mutations  â€“ even more than Omicron. This variant has reportedly infected twelve individuals in France itself, near Marseilles, and has been linked to travel to the African country Cameroon. The Omicron variant was detected first in  South Africa  in November 2021 and has been spreading like wildfire globally since then. The B.1.640.2 has not been reported in any other country or labelled a variant under investigation by the  World Health Organization (WHO). The Health agency mentioned that the variant was first detected in November and would have picked up considering the opportunities it had. The health agency also assured that the variant has been on their radar since then. Who monitors several variants and examines their risk factors. The cases reported of this variant are limited to France and therefore has not been designated a ‘variant under investigation’ by WHO. Several virologists have been noting the presence of this variant and this has popped up in discussions. “There are scores of new variants discovered all the time, but it does not necessarily mean they will be more dangerous. What makes a variant more well-known and dangerous is its ability to multiply because of the number of mutations it has in relation to the original virus.
