The CoV mutation first reported in the UK is spreading to other countries. Today, Canada also reported an infected couple. But medical expert Ursula Wiedermann-Schmidt said today she is convinced that both the Pfizer/Biontech and upcoming vaccines will be effective against the CoV mutation: “We know that there are always mutations. As it stands, though, they’re not of such a large change that the vaccine shouldn’t work.”
Already in recent days, more and more countries reported the presence of the CoV mutation. On Christmas Eve, Baden-Württemberg reported a first case, on Christmas Day another case was registered in France, and on the second holiday Sweden and Spain confirmed one and four cases, respectively.
In Italy, a total of ten cases have been detected so far, and five in Japan. Almost all of those infected had previously entered the country from Great Britain. However, the CoV mutation has now also been detected in a couple in Canada who had no contact with infected persons and, according to health authorities, had not been traveling.
