<p>“The virus made a particular mutation that made it <strong>more contagious than the Chinese one. </strong>In Italy there is a particularly contagious strain. We must not let our guard down ”. These are the declarations of <strong>Massimo Ciccozzi</strong>, molecular epidemiologist at the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome, in connection with Agorà.
“It has also been found in America and Spain genomic sequences of the virus the same mutation. I don’t know when it changed, but what we saw in the genomes we collected from February to April is that the Italian strain had this mutation, the Chinese strain didn’t, “he explained.
“This only leads him to be more contagious.” “It is true that the virus is adapting to us, it is true that we have gods different patients compared to those of February, much more ‘calm’. But if all this is going well, we must not let our guard down. People I have to keep bringing the mask and keep your distance“He concluded.
