Different versions of the coronavirus could affect the course of the pandemic in different countries of the world, says doctor of biological Sciences, head of the sector for molecular evolution, Institute of information transmission problems, Russian Academy of Sciences, Skoltech Professor Georgy Bazykin. The TV channel “Russia 24”, he said that scientists are now investigating mutations of the virus and looking for the answer to the question “changed in any way, these mutations are the properties of this virus.”
“there were several papers that talked about the fact that do some variant of this virus spreading is stronger in Europe and leads there to a great mortality,” – said Bazykin and cited China and Italy, where the spread COVID-19, and mortality markedly differed. However to consider this issue impossible. “The problem is that in Italy and in China differs very much except the virus. It is therefore very difficult to “unhook” the properties of the virus and epidemiological characteristics of the countries in which we see”, – said the scientist.
Informed Bazykin told how often I would have to update the vaccine for coronavirus.
