A new strain of coronavirus has been discovered in Finland




A new strain of coronavirus, called Fin-796H, has been discovered in Finland. This was reported by the local TV company Yle.





According to doctors, the new version of the infection contains mutations that are observed in the British and South African strains.

Presumably, the mutation developed somewhere outside of Finland. “This strain was detected in a patient last week, so nothing is yet known about its contagion and potential for spread, as well as vaccine resistance,” said Taru Meri, associate professor at Vita Laboratories.

Since the beginning of December 2020, new mutated strains of SARS-CoV-2 have been reported from the UK, South Africa, Israel, and Brazil. These variants of the virus appear to spread more easily, and this can lead to an increase in cases, deaths, and hospitalizations.
