New Covid-19 strain, found in Bangladesh 2 months back, has similarity with UK's: BCSIR
Covid-19 strain, similar to that recently found in the UK, was detected in Bangladesh around two months back, researchers said.
In genomic sequencing analysis in early November, scientists at Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) observed new mutations in novel coronavirus strains in the country.
"We observed that one new strain was almost similar to the one found in the United Kingdom, though it was not 100 percent same. We will start working on it again," Dr Selim Khan, principle scientific officer of the BCSIR, told The Daily Star this morning.
