In South Africa, a new COVID variant has been discovered, and the idea that it could be more transmissible and vaccine-resistant than the Delta variant led both Britain and Israel to block travelling to Southern Africa.

The new variant known as B.1.1.529 is early seen in South Africa on Thursday, but it is still common in Botswana, South Africa's north and Hong Kong.

This variant surprised us, said Tulio de Oliveira, director of the KwaZulu-Natal Research and Innovation Sequencing Platform. "This variant has been big jump in evolution, many more mutations than we have expected, especially after a third wave of Delta.

Whether these mutations will be possible for a more dangerous, transmissible and vaccine-resistant form of COVID is unknown. CoVID constantly mutates, and many of these mutations occur,. Experts at the World Health Organization will discuss the new variant on Friday,.

Dr. gives the latest virus variant B.1.1.529 on the 25 November 2021 during the session on November 2021.

The World Health Organization technical director, Maria Van Kerkhove, said that the variant has large numbers of mutations. The problem is that in such cases, it's dangerous, not that you can be a massive influence on the type of virus.

It will take several weeks for us to understand what impact this variant will have.

On Thursday the Secretary for State Health announced that South Africa and five other southern African countries, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini, will enter the UK travel red list. Flights to those countries are being stopped and voyages returning from those countries will have to quarantine. Israel, adding a sixth country, Mozambique, to the list.

Moreover, a new variant has emerged in Africa is as little surprise as many epidemiologists. Coronaviruses can spread through large populations, such as India, where the variant of the Delta is also the case in Africa. African countries have very low vaccination rates, and vast parts of the population are too poor to leave work on orders or seek medical help. Africa is rich, not yet a single country, with one or two large - people in the majority of the population.
