The emerging corona virus has proven that two different strains of it can infect one person at the same time.
Tests conducted in Brazil, the second most in the world in terms of the number of “Covid 19” deaths, revealed the first double case of corona in two people, each of whom was infected with two strains of the virus at the same time.
And researchers from the University of “Vville” in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in southern Brazil, reached this discovery, after conducting a study on 90 patients with “Covid 19”.
In the first case, a patient was confirmed to be infected with two Corona strains, which developed separately and were detected in two different Brazilian states, and called them “P.1” and “P.2”.
As for the second patient, tests revealed that he was infected with the two strains “P.2” that appeared in Brazil, and “B.1.91”, which was detected for the first time in Sweden.
The results of the study were published on the medical site “medRxiv”, but they have not yet been published in a scientific journal and have not been subject to peer review.
And the main researcher in the study, Fernando Spelke, expressed his fear that this type of infection would quickly lead to more mutations of the virus.
Brazil is currently in the middle of the second wave of “Covid 19”, with more than a thousand deaths per day, and since the outbreak of the pandemic in the country, more than 9 million people have been infected with the Corona virus in total, while more than 225 thousand have died of the disease.
On Monday evening, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, announced that the number of new infections with the Coronavirus in the world continued to decrease for the third week in a row.
“For the third week in a row, the number of new Covid-19 cases that we receive reports on has decreased,” Ghebreyesus said during a press conference, adding that this matter “gives rise to hope.” “The mutated versions of it are now spreading.”
