World Health Organization (WHO) expert Maria van Kerkhove told the BBC that the COVID-19 mutation was also found in Denmark, the Netherlands and Australia.
We will remind, initially scientists and doctors said that a new type of coronavirus was discovered in September in the southeast of England. The new virus is more contagious, although, fortunately, this does not affect mortality in any way. Nevertheless, the discovery of the mutation scared many of Britain’s neighbors. Thus, France is considering the issue of border closure.
Now in England, a sharp increase in the number of people infected has been noticed. Over the past week, this number has grown by 41%.
