Eight cases of the new strain were detected in a focus in a district hospital. And the Ministry of Health said, in a statement, that initial analyzes did not indicate that this strain is more dangerous or faster than others.
“Investigations will be conducted to determine the effect of vaccination and antibodies formed as a result of previous cases of Covid-19 on this strain,” the Health Department in the Brittany region in the west of the country said in a statement.
Scientists are also seeking to find out whether this strain could not appear in the test after the result of the B-chain reaction test. C. R »is negative in several patients, then the result of blood samples taken from the depth of the respiratory tract was positive.
