COVID new strain: Cause of origin and 4 symptoms to note, as per scientists – Times of India

According to the study published in the centre for mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, “Social contacts and mobility data suggest that the rise in relative prevalence within England is unlikely to be caused by founder effects: that is, if certain regions had higher levels of transmission as a result of more social interactions, genetic variants that were more prevalent within these regions could become more common overall.”

“However, we did not find evidence of differences in social interactions between regions of high and low prevalence, as measured by Google mobility and social contact survey data,” researchers added.

The study further claims that, “The apparent decoupling between social contacts and transmission during November and December could therefore indicate a change in characteristics of the virus.”
