Two new Covid-19 variants have been found in South Africa. The Network for Genomic Surveillance in South Africa (NGS-SA) confirmed that 11 cases of the B.1.1.7 variant – first detected in the UK was found, as well as four cases of the B.1.617.2 – Indian variant. The patients who tested positive for the India Covid-19 variant all recently travelled from India. NGS-SA says the UK variant detected was found in community samples, therefore suggesting that community transmission has already started.
