Russian scientists receive the first image of the “British” strain of COVID

Rospotrebnadzor scientists took the first photo of the “British” strain of coronavirus, which is considered more infectious. This was reported on the agency’s website.

It is noted that experts continue to study the properties of this type of virus, its features and manifestations in cell cultures and experimental models.

Rospotrebnadzor assured that the mutations characteristic of this strain “do not affect the effectiveness of the EpiVacCorona vaccine, since the preparation contains” peptide antigens belonging to conservative regions of the viral protein. “

The department also said that the tests existing in the Russian Federation can determine cases of infection with this type of coronavirus.

Earlier it was reported that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the “British” strain of coronavirus more deadly. According to him, when infected with a new strain, about 13-14 people die out of a thousand infected.

The WHO, in turn, noted that the increased mortality rate from the “British” strain of coronavirus may be associated with an overload of the country’s healthcare system.
