Lineages with #N440K are NOT the dominant ones in the second wave of #Covid19inIndia. While N440K was a indeed mutation of concern in South India during and after the first wave, current data shows that it is essentially replaced by new VoCs such as #B1617 and #B117
When comparing the data from MH, in MH we can see that the increase in B.1.617 is seen in Feb rather than Mar 2021, and again we observe a reduction in proportion of lineages with N440K.
This coincides well with the second waves seen in the respective states. In MH, the second wave started almost a month and half earlier compared to the 4 southern states, along with the explosion of B.1.617 at the expense of lineages with the mutation N440K.
