Up to twenty times more viruses can be detected in people with a British-type variant compared to the object that detected the original Wuhan coronavirus, and an analysis of data from more than 1,500 PCR tests in Neumann Labs revealed.
Since the current scientific opinion is that the amount of virus in patients is directly proportional to the severity of the disease, it can be assumed that more and more people, including young people, will be hospitalized in the third wave because we are less protected from higher viruses.
According to the measurements of the Hungary-owned diagnostic laboratory, people infected with the British variant have 10 times or even 20 times more virus than those infected with the old traditional variant.

The DNA-dependent polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is not only able to detect infection with amazing efficiency, but it is also an effective way to measure the viral load. In other words, it not only shows whether someone has been infected, but also how many viruses are supposed to be present in your body. Recently, we identified the British variant in about 95 percent of the 3,000 tests we ran each day, but what is even more frightening is that we have measured many more viruses in these samples, on average 15 times more than those in the previous wave. And the first and second in the case of a Fouhani virus
Miklos Nyeri, managing director of Newman Laboratories, confirmed.
Unfortunately, it is also clear that this mutation has become prevalent, as 95 percent of the infections detected in our country are related to the British mutation, while only a few cases have been found in South Africa.
Researchers in the laboratory came to this conclusion by examining a sample of 1,500 British mutants. The lab has so far conducted a total of more than 200,000 tests, with the proportion of positive cases in recent weeks approaching 20 percent.
