    Taiwan on alert over new variant with high number of mutations (2021/11/25)

    Taiwan is on alert for a new COVID variant with an extremely large number of mutations. The variant could eventually be named “nu,” after the Greek letter. It was first detected in Botswana, and has since been found in South Africa and Hong Kong. It has 32 mutations on its spike protein, which means it could be even more transmissible than delta.

    This is still a very rare variant. To this day, we have yet to find this variant in our lab reports, and that includes the reports that will be announced tomorrow. This variant might be named “nu.” We will of course continue to monitor its development.

    In related news, Taiwan’s 15th vaccination round began on Thursday. More than 1.79 million people have appointments to get vaccinated over the next seven days. As of Wednesday, one-dose coverage stands at 77.34%. Two-dose coverage is just over 50%.
