It has been suggested that the more contagious and more lethal mutation of the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19), first seen in England, will become the dominant type in the world.
Professor Sharon Peacock, director of the UK genetic monitoring program Genomics UK, told the BBC that the mutation has been detected in more than 50 countries and “will likely sweep the world”.
Noting that scientists can stop worrying only when the virulence of the virus disappears, Peacock said, “But when we look to the future, I think we will continue to worry. I think we will still be worried 10 years later.” The mutation, known as B117, was found to spread 70 percent faster and was 30-40 percent more deadly in those 60 and over.
Due to the mutation detected by investigating why the cases did not fall despite the quarantine applied in November in the UK, there was a serious increase in deaths and cases caused by Kovid-19 in the country.
