“When we saw the amount of mutations compared to the Wuhan sample or the already known variants we were amazed. We were actually faced with a different virus ”. So Angelo Genoni, one of the laboratory technicians of the microbiology department of the Circolo Hospital, tells the moment of the identification of the very rare variant of Varese, discovered a few days ago. “We must get used to the spread of these Sars-Cov2 mutations in the future – then explains the head physician Fabrizio Maggi – At the moment we can exclude that this variant is circulating on the territory“. “It would not seem – adds Maggi – that the identified mutation conflicts with vaccines. What is being done to stem the spread of the virus is correct; I don’t think a new lockdown is conceivable. Even closing the borders seems pointless at the moment ”.
