British mutation of coronavirus has now surfaced in sixty countries.
The British variant of the coronavirus has now been identified in at least sixty countries and territories. That’s ten more than a week ago, reports the WHO health organization in Geneva. The South African variant of the virus is said to have surfaced in at least 23 places worldwide.
Those new variants are more contagious than previous variants. As a result, some countries are forced to take additional measures to prevent spread.
The coronavirus has claimed the lives of more than two million people worldwide, according to official figures. The death toll rose by 93,000 in a week, according to the WHO, the largest increase since the start of the pandemic. The total number of diagnosed infections is now approaching 100 million.
The outgoing cabinet is concerned about the spread of the virus and is therefore taking new measures. These will be announced during a press conference on Wednesday.
A measure that has often been mentioned is the imposition of a curfew. According to the latest proposal, it should apply from 8.30 pm to 4.30 am. Limiting visits in the home and a ban on flights to and from the United Kingdom and South Africa are also options.
