Japan discovers a new strain of Coronavirus in arrivals from Brazil

Today, Sunday, the Japanese Ministry of Health said a completely new Coronavirus strain was discovered in four travelers from Brazil.

Takagi Wakita, head of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, told reporters at the Ministry of Health that the new strain differs from the two strains discovered in Britain and South Africa.

During the past few weeks, Britain and South Africa discovered two new strains of the Coronavirus, which are characterized by rapid spread, and their emergence led to a surge in the numbers of HIV infections.
