Brazilian Corona Variation in Great Britain P.1
Six cases of alarming variant of corona virus B1 have been detected in the UK, which first appeared in the Brazilian city of Manaus. This was confirmed by the British Minister of Health at a press conference. It is especially dangerous to not be able to contact one of the identified cases and know nothing about the infection.
At a press conference on March 1, 2021, British Health Minister Matt Hankok confirmed six cases of corona virus mutation B1 from Brazil in Great Britain. Five of the victims and their families are in isolation. One of the victims is still missing.
Six cases of B1 variant in the UK
Tests of corona virus in Great Britain on February 12 and 13, 2021 detected SARS-CoV-2 mutation P1 in six cases from Brazil – three in the UK and three in Scotland. This variant was first discovered in Manas, where it caused a violent eruption. “We have identified these cases for advanced hierarchical capabilities in the UK,” UK Health Minister Hancock stressed.
Not one of the mutation carriers
Unfortunately, only five of the victims were able to report a dangerous mutation. “One in six tested, but did not complete contact information,” Hancock explains. Authorities are currently trying to locate the person involved. The Minister of Health seeks help from the English people
How dangerous is the Brazilian variant of the carna virus?
The Brazilian-British research team of the “Center for Arvovirus Discovery, Diagnosis, Genetics and Epidemiology” has studied how dangerous the P1 mutation of SARS-CoV-2 corona virus is actually. Accordingly, the variant is 1.4 to 2.2 times more contagious than the original version. In addition, the mutation increases the risk of re-infection in those who are already infected with the original version (wild type).
Many questions about P.1 are still open
Researchers warn that B1 wild boars have the potential to undermine previously acquired immunity. However, further studies are needed to examine the characteristics of the mutation in more detail. In addition, the research work can only be seen as a pre-publication and has not yet been “reviewed” by independent experts. (vb)
