COVID Update:

Scientists have said a new Covid variant that carries an “extremely high number” of mutations may drive further waves of disease by evading the body’s defences.

Only 10 cases in three countries have been confirmed by genomic sequencing, but the variant has sparked serious concern among some researchers because a number of the mutations may help the virus evade immunity.

The B.1.1.529 (Omicron) variant has 32 mutations in the spike protein, the part of the virus that most vaccines use to prime the immune system against Covid. The mutation rate is double that of the Delta strain.
