‘New variant’ of UK mutant strain discovered in Russian ‘patient zero’

  • January 13, 2021

The report’s pre-publication added how two of the 18 mutations surprisingly matches those found in minks in Denmark.

However, Georgii Bazykin, an Associate Professor at Skolkovo Institute stressed there is no need to panic at news of the new strain.

He told Express.co.uk: “We describe this new variant in a pre-print, which has not yet been peer-reviewed.

“Importantly, new variants of COVID-19 arise all the time; the acquisition of 18 mutations in a specific patient should be considered in the context of thousands of mutations that are already known.”
