Denmark finds COVID-19 mutant strain that can cause secondary infection
Denmark finds COVID-19 mutant strain that can cause secondary infection. Denmark has recently discovered a new mutant new coronavirus strain, which is similar to the mutant new coronavirus B.1.351 found in South Africa and the mutant new coronavirus P.1 found in Brazil. It can reinfect people who have been infected with the new coronavirus.
According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 5th, Christian Wejse, an associate professor in the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University in Denmark, said that the new variant virus is genomically identical to the B.1.1.7 virus strain previously discovered in Kent, England. There are similarities, but there are more spike protein mutations on the basis of the mother strain, Weijies pointed out, “This may make this new variant easier to evade antibodies, and at the same time, people who have been infected with the COVID-19 virus in the past have an increased risk of being infected again. .”
Henrik Ullum, director of the Danish National Serum Institute, said that two cases of infection with the new variant have been tested. “Denmark has a good virus tracking system. We will conduct timely detection of infected cases, and hope that there will be no more cases of infection with this variant.” Weijies also said that although some people are worried that the effect of the vaccine will be weakened or even invalid, but Current vaccines can still prevent severe infections.
