corona virus
The corona virus has caused havoc all over the world. So far, more than 19 lakh people in the world are infected by it, while more than 1 lakh 20 thousand people have lost their lives. In India also the number of infected people has crossed 10 thousand. There has been no disclosure of how the deadly corona virus originated from China, but an Indian Medical Research Council report has revealed this.

Confirmed based on samples

According to ICMR report, SARS-COV-2 virus has been found in two species of bats in India.

The ICMR has confirmed this based on samples taken from different states. The ICMR took samples from seven states for this. These states included several states including Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, Puducherry and Tamil Nadu where the test was found positive.

Infection may occur from mother to child at delivery

Earlier, the ICMR stated that corona infection from mother to child during delivery is possible. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) on Monday said that based on the evidence revealed about corona virus infection, not only is a mother-to-child infection possible during pregnancy, but also a mother-to-child infection during delivery Can.

The ICMR, however, clarified that the ratio of infection between fetus and newborn is yet to be determined. The council said that no corona infection has been confirmed in breast milk yet. Furthermore, there is no data available that confirms the risk of miscarriage or premature delivery due to this virus.

The ICMR said on the basis of evidence obtained during the corona crisis that infection of the virus from mother to newborn is possible. However, how many fetal babies are affected by this remains to be determined.
