As we reported earlier, doctors of the British Health Service (PHE) detected 16 cases of infection with the new strain of coronavirus B.1.621 in the country.
"There is currently no evidence that this option causes more severe disease or makes the vaccines currently in use less effective. PHE is conducting laboratory tests to better understand the effect of mutations on the behavior of the virus," it said.
It is noted that all 16 cases of infection with the new strain were found in those who recently returned from abroad. The country's authorities promise to take all necessary measures to prevent the spread of this option.
