A newly mutated virus penetrates Australia




A new "South African" mutated strain of coronavirus was found in another country - the first case of infection was confirmed in the Australian state of Queensland.





It is reported by ABC.

The virus was found in a woman who was quarantined in a hotel in Brisbane after she flew to Queensland from abroad on December 22.

According to the State Minister of Health Yvette D'At, the patient was transferred to a hospital for treatment. And the rest of the passengers who arrived in the country on the same flight with the infected woman were also quarantined at the hotel, and now they are under the close supervision of epidemiologists.

The minister added that since October 5, 78 “imported” cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Queensland alone, calling this evidence of an increase in the incidence abroad. In this regard, the authorities are going to toughen the conditions for arriving from abroad — both foreigners and Australian citizens.

In addition, viral particles have been found at five sewage treatment plants in the suburbs of Brisbane.

Recall that since the beginning of the pandemic in Australia, 28.3 thousand cases of coronavirus have been confirmed, of which 909 were fatal. However, local scientists have stopped trials of a coronavirus vaccine due to false-positive HIV tests in several participants.
