The World Health Organization has convened an emergency meeting on a new strain of coronavirus. According to experts, this type will be able to more effectively evade antibodies created by previous strains.

As they write "News", A new type of virus is found in South Africa. The strain has so far been named B.1.1.529. WHO experts plan to discuss how dangerous it is and how it will be affected by current treatment regimens and vaccines. In total, more than 100 complete genetic followers of the new COVID variant have now been studied.

Earlier, the risk of the spread of the new strain was reported by British scientists. In the countries of South Africa, about 10 cases of the disease with the new strain have so far been registered. Scientists believe that this is how the new virus "wants to bypass" herd immunity.
