Sao Paulo – A group of investigators has identified a new strain of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, causing COVID-19, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, one of the regions most affected by the Brazilian pandemic, informs these Martial Arts.
Following a study by the National Laboratory of Scientific Computation (LNCC), conducted by the Ministry of Science and Technology and conducted and conducted by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), the new variant was detected earlier this October in the city of Rio de Janeiro, the capital of the homonymous state.
Investigators say that, at present, the new variant is “particularly restricted” in the city, which concentrates the mayor’s number of cases and deaths on COVID-19 in the region, but warns of a possible dissemination of the whole state , other zones of suramerican pais.
“Significant increase in the frequency of this line of preoccupation with the management of public health and the need for genomic vigilance during the second and second infections”, said the scientists in the study, working alongside the coordinator.
The new cepa was discovered during the genetic sequencing of line B.1.1.28, which was circulated in Brazil from the beginning of the year, and it is calculated that the variant was harvested in July.
The 180 genomic investigators analyzed SARS-CoV-2 and found five “exclusive mutations” that “emerged and propagated rapidly”.
The study, without embarrassment, does not indicate if the new one identified is the most transmissive or aggressive that its known in Brazil.
Asimismo, the scientists signal that tampoco has “indications” that the variant can reduce the efficacy of vacancies against the virus that monkeys are trying to distribute all over the world.
The state of Rio de Janeiro, after Sao Paulo, is the second largest region in Brazil with the absolute largest number of bankruptcy cases, with 25,000 cases, and the sixth with more cases confirmed (407,575).
In all the country, which has a population of 210 million inhabitants, the coronavirus has more than 187,000 deaths and 7.2 million infections.
In recent weeks, Brazil has been experimenting with a new pathogen pathogen, which obliges various states and municipalities to return restrictive media to end-of-year celebrations, including those canceled in various localities.
