Secret individual with Brazil variant traced
THE MYSTERY person infected with a Covid variation of concern, first discovered in Brazil, has actually been found.
Last week it was announced that there were 6 cases of the P. 1 variant (Brazilian variation), found in the UK – but one of the cases was still unidentified.
Researchers believe the variant seems more contagious and there are also some concerns that vaccines may not be as effective versus it.
The individual, who lives in Croydon, has been traced, as have their contacts.
NHS England’s Prof Stephen Powis, nevertheless, has actually stated vaccines can be ‘rapidly adapted’.
