The Vita laboratory stated that in collaboration with the Institute of Biotechnology of the University of Helsinki, a previously unknown variant of the new coronavirus was found in a sample of the new coronavirus in southern Finland. The virus variant was initially named Fin-796H. It has two types: the United Kingdom and South Africa. The characteristics of variant strains are difficult to be found by the polymerase chain reaction detection method recommended by WHO.
At present, many different strains of the new coronavirus have been found in the world, and they are almost all similar to the British, South African, or Brazilian virus variants.According to information from the Finnish laboratory, the new strains found in this country are different from all the above-mentioned variants and indicate that not all polymerase chain reaction detection methods can detect the new strains.
As of February 2, local time, there were 17 people infected with the new coronavirus in Finland and 51595 deaths.
