Omicron Variant: So did Omicron come from rats to humans! Shocking claim of Chinese researchers | Omicron Variant: So did Omicron come from rats to humans! Shocking claim of Chinese researchers
Research has shown that the molecular nature of the mutation in the omicron variant was not the same as when the coronavirus was first developed in humans when it was first discovered in humans. In animals, however, mutations were constantly evolving.

Omicron Variant: Worldwide Corona and its dangerous variant Omicron(Omicron)The no-brainer is not over yet, but new research has made people anxious again. Chinese Academy of Sciences(Chinese Academy of Sciences)According to new research from scientists, an omicon variant of the SARS-Cavi-2 virus could develop inside mice and return to humans.
With the implications for the future of coronavirus epidemics, the origin of the variant is still one of the pressing questions of research into coronavirus. Chinese scientists have so far considered three possibilities – whether it evolved in a population with sporadic genome testing during that period, or whether it was immune to long-term infection.(immuno-compromised patient) Transformed into a compromised patient, or it is a reverse zoonosis product, that is, it first infects the animal and then enters humans.
Chinese scientists IGed 3 possibilities
Currently, many scientists are more in favor of the second possibility, as at least one type of anxiety (VOC) is likely to be the original form of alpha, according to news published in the Hindustan Times. A report by Chinese scientists published in the Journal of Genetics and Genomics also suggested the possibility of a third of the three causes.
First, they calculated that the corona virus evolved naturally at a rate of 0.45 mutations per month, including all other VOCs. However, the number of mutations in the Omicron variant means that it has evolved three times faster, at 1.5 mutations per month, which does not occur at the natural rate of evolution in humans.
So did the virus re-enter humans from rats?
Second, and most importantly, they found that the molecular nature of mutations in omicron variants was not the same as when corona virus was first developed in humans when it was first found in humans. In animals, however, mutations were constantly evolving.
Third, they found the closest relatives of the two B.1.1 family viruses of the Omicron variant, where it was last seen in May 2020. By that time, the two viruses were on the lines expected to change. Overall, this means that scientists say that SARS-Cavi-2 has undergone a significant evolutionary leap in being able to infect mice.
They wrote that their findings suggest that the ancestor of Omicron “experienced the opposite zoonotic phenomenon in rats from humans during the epidemic (mostly in the mid-2020s) and again in humans by the end of 2021.” The rats had previously experienced a cumulative change. Host for more than a year.
This is a scenario that nuclear biologists have long debated. Earlier, in their study, scientists discovered that mink animals were infected with SARS-Cavi-2 by humans on a farm in Denmark, and that they later transmitted the virus to several other humans.
