Scientists have announced the spread around the world of three types of coronavirus. This became known to the Daily Mail.
After analyzing the genetic history of the virus, researchers from Cambridge concluded that it mutated during its spread throughout the world.
The original type of virus that has been transmitted to humans has proven to be the most common in Australia and the United States. Scientists called it вЂњType A.вЂќ He later mutated into вЂњType B,вЂќ which caused an epidemic in China. Residents of Europe are more likely to encounter вЂњtype CвЂќ, which is a subsidiary of вЂњtype BвЂќ. Scientists emphasize that coronavirus continues to mutate.
It was previously reported that scientists at the Institute of Basic Sciences in South Korea analyzed the complete SARS-CoV-2 RNA genome and compiled a detailed gene map. Their further study will help determine the life cycle of the virus and develop methods to combat it.
According to the latest data, 1.7 million people have become infected with coronavirus in the world. More than 100 thousand have died.
