Researchers around the world are now watching. Monitoring the deadly of the new covid-19 mutant strain It was called B.1.X or B.1.640 after the first reported cases of COVID-19 were found. This new species in France last October Before later, the infection was found in many European countries. Even now, the number of people infected with COVID-19 The new species will still be in the tens digits.
Mutated in key locations that had never been seen before.
The reason why researchers around the world Especially in Europe, the eye of the covid-19 strain B.1.640 with no less fear. because it had mutated in an important position. One that hasn’t been seen before is a mutation in the spike protein (thorn protein) that causes COVID-19. Used to bind to receptor cells in the human body.
Professor Cyril Cohen at the University of Bar-Ilan in Israel told The Jerusalem Post that COVID-19 The new strain B.1.640 has mutated in some locations. which we have never seen before.
For example, spike proteins (thorn proteins) surround their cells. at COVID-19 Used to bind to receptors in the human body and cause infection. It appears that there has been a mutation. which we have never seen before And this could make it more difficult for vaccines to identify ‘spike protein’ before COVID-19. will cause infection in the human body
Where does the new strain of COVID-19 B.1.640 come from?
French media outlet Le Telegramme reports first case of coronavirus 24 new strains of B.1.640 at a school in Breton. France last October And the French authorities were able to control the spread of the epidemic. But later found infected with COVID-19 New species B.1.640 in many European countries. whole united kingdom Switzerland, Scotland and Italy
Professor Cohen also said it looked like COVID-19. new species It’s from Africa, which is probably infected with COVID-19. New species will not arise. If the world had access to more vaccines
‘Mutation of COVID-19 until a new species As an example, If you leave a handful of people on the planet unvaccinated. Then COVID-19 It will continue to mutate. and will lead to the spread of COVID-19. A new species,’ said Prof. Cohen.
Presence of COVID-19 New strain B.1.640, which is still slow to spread. due to COVID-19 Delta species Still the main strain that has spread globally, it occurs as countries across Europe, including Austria, the Netherlands and Germany, are dealing with COVID-19 cases. soaring, breaking records Since the outbreak of COVID-19 Until the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning that the outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe is of great concern.
Austria on November 18, 19, reported 15,809 new cases of COVID-19, while Germany was shocked. When new cases were found, the number jumped to 64,164 as of Nov. 17.
Experts are of the opinion that Europe’s return to covid-19 may cause covid-19 The new strain B.1.640 has also spread in Europe. This may be the reason why COVID-19 cases were found. Soaring so fast right now
Experts warn of new strains of coronavirus spreading around the world
amid the outbreak of COVID-19 New strain B.1.640 as Europe is back in the face of Covid-19 The epidemic was so severe that it created another concern. It has one of the top economic experts in Europe. has issued a warning that Europe should be aware that it is possible to face the global spread of the novel coronavirus.
EU Commissioner for Economy and Taxation, Paolo Gentiloni, told CNBC the coronavirus pandemic not the end Meanwhile, new cases of infections in Europe continued to rise.
‘It’s still an epidemic. And we should be very careful that there is a possibility of COVID-19. New strains are coming up and we need a strong vaccine system.’
Even economic experts of the European Union, this person does not clearly indicate that COVID-19 What is the new strain that is likely to spread globally? But this alarm may make us more aware that COVID-19 is still alive and ready to mutate into the virus. worse than before As long as we allow – allow time for the deadly virus to spread and infect.
