Original title: unknown variant of new coronavirus found in Canadian nursing home, 19 people died

According to the latest report of Canada’s globe and mail, an unknown variant of a new coronavirus has been found in a long-term care home in northern Toronto, Canada, causing many deaths. Preliminary detection found that the virus samples of six residents in the nursing home and the mutant strains of the new coronavirus in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil had part of the same gene sequence at the same location. The Ontario public health laboratory is further investigating whether the “unknown mutation” is one of the three mutations mentioned above, or another different mutation. Since the local health bureau announced the outbreak of an epidemic in the nursing home on the 8th, 122 of the 130 residents in the nursing home have been infected, 69 employees and two visitors have also been infected, resulting in 19 deaths.
