A partial sequencing study of the spike protein gene of coronovirus was found in two new cases of the United Kingdom version in Argentina.
A partial sequencing study of the coronavirus spike protein gene Two new cases of United Kingdom edition were discovered in Argentina, one of them related to community circulation cases, and 14 cases of Rio de JaneiroIn a sample of 156 people from the province and city of Buenos Aires, Roberto Salvarezza informed the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation.
“New report of active monitoring of variants of SARS-CoV-2 in the city and province of Buenos Aires, confirmed two cases of variant 501Y.V1 (United Kingdom) and new cases of variant P.2 (Rio de Janeiro), “Salvarezza detailed via Twitter.
about this The latest monitoring report of the Argentine inter-institutional genomic project of SARS CoV-2 (PaaS Project), which led to the detection of 16 cases of two variants of the SARS-Cov-2 virus that cause Kovid-19, but mutations 501Y.V2 (South Africa) and 501Y.V3 (Manaus) Not found .
The report included partial sequencing of genes that code for spike proteins in 156 samples from the city and province of Buenos Aires.
It was reported that in two cases of partial sequencing of the sample obtained between 1 November 2020 and 7 February this year, mutations characteristic of the UK variant were detected.
“While one of them has a travel history, the other is associated with a case of community circulation,” a summary of Procto Pass report number 15.
In both cases, the entire genome is being sequenced for final characterization.
Regarding all sequencing conducted so far, out of the 545 samples analyzed, one from the United Kingdom was identified in 3 cases, while 5.1% had detected Roe de Janeiro mutations (seven of these cases were already confirmed Same was done in genome sequencing) and in two other cases of Mood.
Since last December, at least four viral variants of SARS-CoV-2 attracted the attention of the scientific community and governments around the world.
– 501Y.V1 (Dynasty B.1.1.7), Which was detected in the oldest specimen The uk On 20 September last year, it was reported in 82 countries within South America, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay.
In our country, this edition was reported on 15 January with a history of travel to Austria and Germany, with details of the case of an Argentine resident in the United Kingdom who arrived in Frankfurt in late December.
– Variant 501Y.V2 (Dynasty B.1.351)Found in Sudafrica It was reported in 40 countries as of Friday, with no reports of its introduction in the US since last 8 October.
– while, La Variant 501Y.V3, Whose initial sample matches the previous 4 December, was found in Mind, Has been found in Brazil and Japan and already in 18 countries, including Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Argentina.
On 8 February, the Enliss Malbourne Institute reported the detection of this variant in Argentina in two samples from Brazilian travelers.
– Finally, La variant VUI-202101/01Found in Cry de janeiro, Mainly after October last year, it was located in 17 countries including Argentina with community mobilization.
