Source Title: two new indigenous crown variant strains found in the United States
Scientists from Wexner medical center of Ohio State University found two new coronaviruses in Columbus, which may be variants in the United States.
Columbus medical center in Ohio announced on its official website on the 13th local time that a mutation similar to that found in the United Kingdom has been found in Ohio, but it should exist in the United States. The new strain was found in a patient, but researchers have yet to confirm the extent to which it has spread locally in Ohio.
Another strain may have spread in Columbus for three weeks and become the main local strain. Dr. Dan Jones, who led the study, said that the new strain found in Columbus had three gene mutations that had not been found before, but it was certain that the mutant strain did not come from a branch of the strain found in the UK or South Africa.
The Washington Post reported on the 11th that fudge said in an interview that the rise of new crown cases in the United States is similar to the epidemic curve in the United Kingdom, so it is possible to have the situation of new crown variant virus strains found in the United Kingdom. Fudge pointed out that it is possible that the United States already has its own mutant strain, which is easier for Americans to spread.
Moller, chief scientific officer of Ohio State Wexner medical center and associate dean of research at Ohio State University, worries that the biggest question is whether these mutations will make vaccines and current treatments ineffective. But he also said, “there is no data to believe that these mutations will have any impact on the effectiveness of vaccines currently in use.”;. Moller hopes the public will not overreact to the new variant until more data is available;. (overseas website Hou Xingchuan)
