LUCKNOW: Two cases of Kappa variant of Covid-19 have been detected in Uttar Pradesh. Genome sequencing of 109 samples was done at King George's medical college here in the past few days.


The Delta Plus variant of Covid-19 was found in 107 samples, while the Kappa variant was found in two samples, the statement issued after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's routine review meeting said.


"Both the variants are not new for the state. The facility of genome sequencing is being increased in the state," it added.


At present, the daily positivity rate in the state is 0.04 per cent.


When asked about the Kappa variant, additional chief secretary (health) Amit Mohan Prasad said earlier also cases of this variant were found in the state.

When asked in which districts this variant was found, Prasad did not divulge details and said it would create fear among people.
