A new variant of Corona has emerged in France
A new variant of Corona virus B.1.640.2 was found in a passenger returning from Cameroon. There are more mutations in this variant than Omekron. On the other hand, the first case of ‘Florona’ has also come to light in Israel.
The new variant was actually found last month, in early December, in a passenger who had returned to France from Cameroon. The man, who returned from Cameroon, transmitted the virus to 12 people in southern France, according to the IHU Mediterranean hospital in Marseille.
A new variant of Corona
More mutations than omicron
This newly modified form of corona virus is named B.1.640.2 and contains 46 mutations or mutations compared to the original corona virus. Note that Omecron has 37 mutations. This is stated in a published study.
According to the study, the new variant also contains two previously known spike protein mutations, N501Y and E484K. The N501Y mutation, for example, was found in an alpha variant, enabling the virus to attach more strongly to human cells, allowing the virus to spread more easily through the body.
The E484K mutation, however, is present at the spike of the corona virus and thus potentially reduces the ability of cod anis vaccines to be effective.
The dangers and starting point of the new variant are still unknown
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. ۔ This is because there are not many statistics available about this variant yet.
Similarly, it is not yet known where this new variant started. The fact that the B.1.640.2 variant was found in a passenger returning from Cameroon does not prove that the virus originated in the same Central African country.

The first case of Florina in Israel
Meanwhile, a 31-year-old pregnant woman in Israel has contracted the cod anis and influenza viruses simultaneously. This is the first Florina case in the world. Florina is a combination of the two words flu and corona.According to the Israeli Ministry of Health, the woman in Florina is slightly ill. The number of flu cases in Israel has risen sharply in recent years, and the Israeli Ministry of Health is trying to determine if Florina is causing a more serious illness. Concerns have also been raised about the “twin demons” after the case came to light, meaning that there was a simultaneous outbreak of cod anis and the flu.
