AMC MCQ Recalls JUNE 2021

The Delta variant of Covid-19 — which first appeared in India — has started spreading rapidly in the United Kingdom and was also recently detected in Australia. Both countries have registered a sharp increase in new infections over the past week.

The B.1.617 variant of the virus, which has in part been blamed for India’s explosive outbreak, has been dubbed a triple mutant variant since it is split into three lineages: B.1.617.1, B.1.617.2 and B.1.617.3. Of these, B.1.617.2 has been identified as a variant of concern (VoC) by the World Health Organization (WHO) and was recently renamed as the Delta variant. It is said to be highly transmissible.

Meanwhile, B.1.617.1, or Kappa variant, has been identified as a Variant of Interest (VoI). The B.1.617.3 strain has not been classified as either VoC or VoI since there have been very few reports of people being infected by the strain.

Due to this surge of second wave, many of our candidates got their exam postponed to a later date. However, there are still minority of them who managed to sit for the exam. A big thank you to those who had contributed in providing us with these recalls. Now let us do our part by solving these recalls for you. You may get them from here.
