It is observed that the incubation period of this virus is shorter,but it spreads rapidly. Earlier when patients were affected the virus took at least a week to reach the hypoxia or dyspnea stage. But after the new variant emerged it’s affect is more rapid as the patients are reaching the serious condition stage within three or four days. This is now leading to the shortage of ICU beds and ofcourse oxygen. Currently the increase in the cases affected with this virus can be seen spreading in Telangana, parts of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka.
