The B117 mutation is thought to be up to 70 percent more contagious.
The UK government today provided information on disturbing findings: Apparently, the B117 mutation is said to be not only more contagious, but also more deadly than previous variants.

The coronavirus mutant B.1.1.7, first detected in England, is apparently more deadly than earlier virus variants, according to British findings. There is now “evidence” that the mutant is not only more contagious but also “associated with a higher mortality rate,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Friday evening in London. The viral variant had first spread in London and southern England.

B117 up to 70 percent more contagious
The United Kingdom is among the hardest hit countries in the world by the Corona pandemic. More than 96,000 infected people have already died. According to the World Health Organization, B.1.1.7 has now been detected in around 60 countries, including Austria. According to expert estimates, the virus variant is up to 70 percent more contagious than the original novel coronavirus. The spread of the mutant is one reason why corona restrictions have recently been tightened again in many countries. In addition, a coronavirus mutant that is also significantly more infectious has appeared in South Africa and has now been detected in more than 20 countries.
