[Real-time news/comprehensive report]The global Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) epidemic continues to spread. Recently, a variant virus strain “B.1.1.7” appeared in the UK. A medical website research report pointed out that the virus strain was transmitted in the United States The number of people doubles approximately every 10 days.

According to “CNBC”, a research report published by the medical website “medRxiv” on the 7th mentioned that the variant virus strain “B.1.1.7” spread rapidly in the UK and became the main virus strain; in the last week of January, the variant virus accounted for 3.6% of U.S. military lung cases.

The researchers said that the United States still has time to take relevant measures to slow the spread of this new virus strain, and warned that “decisive and immediate public epidemic prevention measures” should be taken because this mutant virus strain “will be possible in a few months. It will have devastating consequences for the morbidity and mortality of the U.S. Armed Forces.”

The study revealed that due to the lack of genomic monitoring plans for this mutant virus strain in the United Kingdom and Denmark, tracking how this virus strain spreads will be complicated. The rate of transmission of this mutant virus in California, the United States, approximately doubles every 12.2 days, in Florida for 9.1 days, and the national average of 9.8 days.

It is understood that the research is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Canadian Institutes of Health (CIHR), and has been posted to the medRxiv website, but has not yet been reviewed by the industry.
