A new strain of coronavirus was discovered in France: what is known about it

Make assumptions about the virological, epidemiological, or clinical features of this variant & # 171; IHU & # 187; it's still early.

A new strain of coronavirus B.1.640.2 was discovered in France, which infected 12 people. According to the study, it has 46 new mutations as well as 37 deletions. Scientists named this strain of coronavirus & # 171; IHU & # 187; The variant, tentatively identified as B.1.640.2, was investigated with support from the French government, which has not yet been peer-reviewed. It is considered Cameroonian in origin.

& # 171; The set of mutations and the phylogenetic position of the genomes obtained here indicate, based on our previous definition, a new variant, which we named & # 171; ІHU & # 187;, & nbsp; & # 8212; scientists said.

The first case was found in a vaccinated patient who returned from a trip to Cameroon in mid-November 2021. He was vaccinated 3 days before the trip.

& # 171; The day before the diagnosis, he developed mild respiratory symptoms & # 187;, & nbsp; & # 8212; said in the message.

Then similar mutations were found in eight more patients, among whom were children. And the case itself proves the unpredictability of the coronavirus.

& # 171; This data is another example of the unpredictability of the appearance of SARS-CoV-2 variants and their penetration into this geographical area from abroad & # 187;, & # 8212 ; noted the scientists and added that making assumptions about the virological, epidemiological or clinical features of this variant & # 171; IHU & # 187; it's still early.
