Suara.com – A new variant of the Covid-19 corona virus was detected in Brazil in early January 2021, after four travelers arrived in Japan with the mutation.
This new variant of the corona virus in Brazil is the third confirmed variant and has caused concern around the world.
This new variant of the corona virus has similarities with the virus mutations in Britain and South Africa, which were first identified in 2021.
Scientists are still analyzing the new variant of the corona virus in Brazil to see whether the new variant of the corona virus is more transmissible than previous types of corona virus or not.
British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson admitted that he was concerned about the new variant of the Covid-19 corona virus in Brazil. However, he added that many questions remain.
“We already have sufficiently tough steps to protect our country from infection with this new variant of the corona virus. Until now we are still doing this in the midst of the emergence of a new variant of the corona virus in Brazil,” said Boris Johnson. Express.
The Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, Sir Patrick Vallance, explained that although a new variant of the corona virus could be transmitted, it would not lead to severe infection.
“We see that this new variant of the corona virus in Brazil has the same genetic code changes as in South Africa at position 484 with a slight change in protein shape,” said Sir Patrick Vallance.
In addition, the changes they saw from the new variant were mostly due to the increase in transmission. That is what makes this new variant of the corona virus more contagious.

Symptoms of the new variant of the corona virus in Brazil
The signs of infection caused by the new variant of the corona virus in Brazil are the same as in England and South Africa, which are believed to be exactly the same as the symptoms of the previous coronavirus variant infection.

Because, the new variant of the corona virus is more easily transmitted. This means that more people will be infected with the corona virus even though they were initially immune.
So, it is important for everyone to always implement the right health protocols to protect themselves and others around them.
