The Russian Research Center “Victor” managed to obtain the world’s first image of the British strain of Corona virus.
This came in the statement of the Media Center of the Federal Agency for Consumer Rights Protection “Ross Trip Nadzor”, where the statement stated that it was the first time in the world that the British strain of Coronavirus was photographed from a patient in December 2020. After obtaining the image of the virus under a microscope as part of studying its characteristics .
On December 4, Britain announced the discovery of a new strain of Corona virus, and the Russian authorities had temporarily restricted air traffic with the United Kingdom, then the first case of the “British” mutation of the Coronavirus was recorded in Russia, and the patient has now recovered.
According to Professor of Systems Biology at George Mason University, Anchi Baranova, the “British” strain of Coronavirus may become the main virus strain in Russia. According to her, infection with this virus is 56% more than the previously discovered strain.
The system of polymerase chain reaction tests developed by the “Vector” center of “Ross Trip Nadzor” was able to detect infection with the “British” strain, as the system can distinguish the difference between the altered virus and the non-mutated forms.
It is reported that the “Epifacorona” vaccine produced by the “Victor” Center is effective against mutations of the British strain of Corona virus as well.
