Earlier last week, the new type of coronavirus JN.1 was detected in the body of five people in the country. Three of them are from the capital and two from outside Dhaka. Last Thursday, the government’s Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) reported the information.
This new type of coronavirus was detected in Kerala, India, at the end of last year. Many scientists in the world have expressed concern about this type named JN.1. They say it is more contagious than any previous type of corona.
Scientists’ initial hypothesis is that the Corona Omicron type is BA.2.86 or this JN.1 type, similar to Pirola. It was first detected in America last September. Then on December 15 this type was detected in the bodies of seven people in India.
A woman in Kerala, India, who was diagnosed with the Jn.1 type of corona showed mild flu-like symptoms. Initially this seems to be the symptom of the disease.
