WHO calms panic over new COVID-19 mutation in UK

The new coronavirus subspecies is more contagious but doesn't seem to be dangerous. The WHO still urged people to take care of themselves.

The coronavirus mutation detected in the UK does not pose great danger. This was stated by WHO spokesman David Nabarro, according to the BBC on Tuesday, December 15.

“This type of virus is more contagious but does not appear to be dangerous. The data suggests that this will not radically change priorities in the fight against the virus in the UK,” Nabarro said.

The WHO nevertheless urged the public to be more careful due to the identified mutation. Earlier in the UK, they announced for days that they had identified a new mutation of the coronavirus, which is spreading faster, in some regions of Britain they are expecting an outbreak of the disease.

We will remind you that earlier scientists reported a new threat for patients with coronavirus. In the first ten days after recovering from COVID, people have an increased risk of going back to the hospital bed or even dying.

It was also reported that scientists named the most “dangerous” place for COVID infection. Households are a key transmission medium for coronavirus. Without changing everyday behavior, the pandemic will not be quickly stopped.
