According to the updated dashboard of the World Health Organization (WHO), as of January 16, 2021, there have been 92,506,811 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with over 2,001,773 recorded deaths globally, however, the distribution of a few developed vaccines to fight off the coronavirus disease has been well underway. What most of us are unaware of is that the COVID-19 virus is continuously mutating and several strains or variants are circulating across different parts of the world, including our country, Philippines.
The B.1.1.7 variant, more commonly known as the UK variant, is a “version” of COVID-19 with 23 mutations. Yes, you read that right and eight of these mutations are in the spike protein which the virus uses to enter and bind into the human cells, making people sick. This variant is one of the existing variants that worry the experts, because although it doesn’t seem to be more deadly, it is between 50% and 74% more transmissible than other dominant strains. Despite the efforts of the United Kingdom to implement travel restrictions upon the identification of this strain, several countries including France, Japan, South Korea, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Lebanon, Singapore, Australia, the Philippines, and a lot more, have already reported and confirmed their first cases of this mutated virus. If it were able to spread at this rate, more people would likely be infected and hospitalized, ultimately resulting to higher death rates and the prolongation of the global pandemic.
This new COVID-19 variant, along with the others, is continuously sparking fresh fears among all of us, and at this point, it is difficult to perceive what may or may not happen in the future. Strict observance of protocols against COVID-19 is still highly advised. Now, more than ever, we have to prioritize our safety against this coronavirus.
