The World Health Organization meets today to evaluate the new mutated strain of Corona

WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier said that a meeting of experts will be held from Geneva at 12 noon today (11:00 GMT) to assess the new mutated strain of coronavirus (P1.1.529) amid growing concern.

“The World Health Organization is holding a meeting … to better understand the timeline for ongoing studies and to determine whether this strain should be classified as a mutation of interest or a mutation of concern,” he added.

Lindmeier explained that nearly 100 sequences of the mutated strain have been reported, and early analysis shows that they contain “a large number of mutations” that require further study.

He added that the World Health Organization has no comment at the moment on the travel restrictions imposed by some authorities on southern African countries linked to this mutated strain.
