A new, so-called the “British strain” of coronavirus also poses a threat to children, University of London epidemiologist Deepti Gurdasani writes about this on the social network Twitter.
In her assessment, the virus mutation is 1.74 times faster than the SARS-CoV-2 strain and poses a threat not only to adults but also to the under-19 age group.
A new mutation in SARS-CoV-2 was discovered in the UK in mid-December. Today it is already registered in more than 20 countries around the world.
