18 mutated new coronaviruses found in a Russian woman
18 mutated new coronaviruses found in a Russian woman, which are the same as those infected by mink. Russian scholars have discovered 18 mutated new coronaviruses in a woman with low immunity. Some of the variants are the same as the new mutated viruses that appeared in the UK, and two of them are consistent with the mutated new coronaviruses carried by Danish mink.
According to the Russian “Izvestia” report on the 12th, the woman is 47 years old and suffers from lymphoma. In April 2020, the woman was infected with the new coronavirus during a chemotherapy session. Since then, she has undergone regular nucleic acid tests, and the test results have been positive until September 9.
According to reports, part of the mutant new coronavirus that appeared in the woman’s body was the same as the mutant virus previously observed in patients with weak immune function, and the same as the new mutant virus that appeared in the UK. In addition, the two mutant viruses are also consistent with the mutant COVID-19 virus carried by Danish mink.
Konstantin Krutovsky, a professor at the Department of Genomics and Bioinformatics at Siberian Federal University, pointed out that this research has confirmed for the first time the fact that “the long-term existence of a new coronavirus in an organism will cause a large number of mutations. “. At the same time, he pointed out that it is too early to determine the spread of the “Russian” strain because only this case has occurred.
