British experts say another new coronavirus variant with a potentially worrisome mutation has been discovered in the country. The variant named B1525.
The variant has been detected in 10 countries, including Denmark, the United States and Australia.
So far, 32 confirmed cases have been identified in the UK, with the earliest sequence dating back to December, according to researchers at the University of Edinburgh.
Experts say the variant has genomic similarities to the variant B117 found by Kent, and that it contains many mutations that worry researchers, including the E484K mutation in the stinger protein.
