Since the newer strain of Coronavirus has been known from UK in last few months, the world has come to a standstill as to whether the new strain is more deadly. Now, as the US has contracted the new strain of Coronavirus, they’ve come up with a better shorthand for referring to them. They’ve named them after birds.
“In late January of 2021, our two independent SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance programs, based at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, Louisiana, each noticed increasing numbers of … viruses carrying an S:Q677P mutation, and that this variant had increased in frequency in samples collected in late 2020 to mid-January,” the researchers wrote.
We hope for speedy recovery of all the people and economies affected by this Coronavirus.
