General / European Health Authority calls for the analysis and tracking of samples of the Coronavirus to discover the new strain
The European Health Authority advised public health authorities and laboratories in Europe to analyze and track virus samples to discover the possible spread of the new strain of Coronavirus that was first discovered in Britain.
The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control stated that the preliminary analysis conducted in Britain indicates that the new strain “is significantly more transmissible than the previously circulated variants.”
