Razones por la que deberíamos prestar atención a la variante de #SARSCoV2 #B117:

Ya ha sido identificada en todos los continentes, y al paso que va (50%) será la más prevalente en #Europa. Dicho esto debemos preocuparnos. (1/n)
Es importante identificar la #transmision #criptica (mucha gente infectada sin síntomas) esto lo observamos en una estudio hecho en #RD (niños y jóvenes/sin síntomas/ni morbilidades:… (2/n)
El continuo de transmisión aumenta la variabilidad del virus (mutaciones) Aprox. ciclos de ~15 días, incluso podrían #seleccionarse mutaciones que no representaban mucha importancia en su #transmisibilidad. (3/n)

Hmm. Is "#Moonshot" implicit acknowledgement of this?
