UK COVID strain spreads faster than other variants - study

A study conducted in the United Kingdom found that the mutant strain of coronavirus known as B.1.1.7, which was first detected in the country, spreads faster than other virus variants, according to the Lancet medical journal.

"Emerging evidence exists of increased transmissibility of B.1.1.7, and we found increased virus load by proxy for B.1.1.7 in our data," said the study.

However, there was no evidence found that links the variant with severe disease leading to a fatal outcome.
