New figures show where in the country British mutation is most prevalent


The British variant B.1.1.7 is found to a greater or lesser extent in all regions. It has been found in 383 Danes so far.

On Wednesday, the British variant accounts for 6.6 per cent of the gene-sequenced samples at national level in week 2. This is stated in the latest on the development from the Statens Serum Institut. On Sunday, it appeared that the share was 8.2 percent, and on Monday the figure was 7 percent. The figures change day by day because the Statens Serum Institut continuously updates them.

The largest proportion of cases is found in Region Zealand, where 10.3 per cent of the gene-sequenced samples turn out to be the British variant.

Next, 8.9 per cent of the gene-sequenced samples are the British variant in the Region of Southern Denmark. The Central Jutland Region occupies third place with 6 per cent, and in the Capital Region the British variant makes up 5.1 per cent of the gene-sequenced samples.

In the statement for the Capital Region, however, it is worth noting that Bornholm is completely free of the British variant. The North Jutland region has the fewest cases when measuring the proportion of the sample-identified cases with the British variant, which is 1.2 per cent.

The order in most cases measured by the proportion of samples is in the same order in week 1, but the percentages have become higher because the proportion of the sample-identified cases with the British variant has grown. In week 1, the share at national level is tentatively at 4 percent, and in week 2 at 6.6 percent.

Some experts point out that the percentage, ie the percentage, indicates that the British variant is spreading rapidly in society, while others believe that the variant is not spreading quite as rapidly because the number of new cases in week 1 and in week 2 is large seen the same, while the total number of infections decreases. The number of sample-identified cases with the UK variant is currently 111 in week 1 and 94 in week 2.
