Recently it has been discovered that a new variant of the Corona virus from the UK has spread to a number of countries. This new type of Corona virus is known to be more dangerous and is the cause of the spike in COVID-19 cases in the UK.
This new variant of the Corona virus is named ' VUI - 202012/01 ' because the first variant was investigated in December. Matt Hancock, Minister of Health, said that this new variant of the Corona virus is growing faster than the previous variant. This variant is also known as B117.
Several countries have reported a new variant of Corona originating from the UK, such as Denmark, Singapore, Australia, and most recently India.
The head of the COVID-19 Task Force for the Indonesian Doctors Association, Professor Dr. Zubairi Djoerban , SpPD-KHOM, said there was not much different from the previous variant D614.
"It is not much different, in terms of severity, from the side of fatalities, in terms of making death, this new virus is no more serious. However, being serious, the numbers are much faster, much more," said Prof. Zubairi in a press conference broadcast by BNPB, Tuesday (29/12/2020).
"But because the number has become much larger than before, it is certainly significant to be a burden for referral hospitals and medical care and health workers," concluded Prof. Zubairi.
Mutations of the Corona D614G virus were first reported last February in Europe, following reports in Malaysia and Singapore. In early September, the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology (LBME) also confirmed the existence of this type of mutation in Indonesia.
Similar to the Corona virus variant found in the UK, the D614G strain was also initially associated with the speed of transmission. There is no evidence that the mutations have been found to make the virus stronger or weaker.
