February 10 According to a report by Sky News and The Sun on the 9th, the British respiratory virus advisory team found two new strains of Variant COVID-19 in recent research, which may be more infectious, have caused infection in 76 people and may affect the effectiveness of the vaccine.
The two new strains of COVID-19, which were previously reported to be Variant in the UK’s variants of the coronavirus, were reported in the western British cities of Bristol and Liverpool, respectively.
The new strain currently reported in Bristol has found 21 cases in the city and Manchester.
Another new strain found in Liverpool is still under investigation. According to the British public health department, 76 people have been infected with the two new strains.
However, the most interesting thing is the Variant strain of COVID-19 called “E484K”, which may be more difficult to be detected by the immune system, thus reducing the protection effect of the vaccine.
On the evening of the 8th, 10,000 people in Manchester were asked to be tested for the virus as soon as possible after two unlinked families were found in the virus infection.
Currently, in addition to the variant of COVID-19 reported in Brazil, the variant of COVID-19 reported in South Africa has also appeared in the UK.
