Medical researchers in Kenya said a unique COVID-19 variant discovered in the country does not show significant change to raise concern over vaccine effectiveness, as reported by MSN.
The variant was observed in sequencing rounds carried out between March and June and another that ended in October.
According to researcher Charles Agoti, the variant has "one change that is suspected to be of significance."
He noted that variants in South Africa and the UK had eight and nine changes respectively, adding "we are resisting calling this a new variant because it doesn't have many changes."
