The new variant of the coronavirus detected in the United Kingdom may have already infected citizens of several European countries

The new variant of the coronavirus detected in the United Kingdom may have already infected citizens of several European countries, said the professor of pharmaceutical-epidemiology at the University of Oxford Daniel Prieto-Alhambra today. About 20 million people are now confined in London and its metropolitan area, due to the increase in infections with covid-19, apparently due to the mutation that makes the virus more contagious, a situation that the United Kingdom has already communicated to the World Health Organization (WHO).

And Christmas, in spite of all the restrictions and recommendations, will inevitably bring a spike in infections throughout the country. Please take all the necessary precautions, stay safe and well, and enjoy the festive season in a sensible, responsible way!
