Okay, so there has been a lot of news circulating about N440K variant being or not being the cause of second wave based on a study from our lab...I will just try to clarify the findings which have been discussed and how the findings were interpreted: a thread
#N440K #LongCovid
So a few days back we published a preprint from our lab that N440K variant (also known as B.1.36) has more infectious fitness than its parent lineage A2a ( also known as D614G mutant or B.1.1.8) and an unrelated A3i variant (aka B.6)
We have also suggested that based on the sequence information on @GISAID till April 24th 2021, the proportion of N440K variants are increasing, clustering in some regions more than the others.

This "could lead to sudden, extraordinary, widespread disaster beyond the collective capability of national & int. orgs & the #privatesector to control."

Just as the world began its counterattack against #COVID19 by launching large-scale #vaccination drives,novel #coronavirus has retorted using the oldest trick in the textbook: #mutation.

#Mutantcoronavirus
The new variants,which appear to be more adept at transmitting from one person to another, have given a bout of jitters to an already anxious world.While linked to the #UK and #SouthAfrica, the origin locations of these variants and just how far they have spread, remain unclear.

2 - 'Professor Nick Loman of the Covid-19 Genomics UK (COG UK) consortium, identified the new set of #mutation as VUI – 202012/0. He confirmed that it is not new, as COG UK identified it in September, and there is no proof that it is more infectious'

3 - 'Dr Maria van Kerkhove, the technical lead of #COVID19 response and the head of emerging diseases and zoonosis unit at #WHO, has also confirmed that the #strain involved has been circulating for many months'

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"

In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)

People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
