New coronavirus risk is revealed
It’s been just reported that a 90-year-old woman died after becoming infected with two different strains of Covid-19 – this event revealed another risk in the fight against the disease, Belgian researchers found.
Bloomberg notes that in the first peer-reviewed analysis of an infection with multiple strains, experts found the woman had contracted both the alpha variant, which first surfaced in the U.K., and the beta strain, first found in South Africa.
“The infections probably came from separate people, according to a report published Saturday and presented at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases.”
Bloomberg also noted that the woman hadn’t been vaccinated.
“Her respiratory symptoms rapidly worsened and she died five days later. When her respiratory samples were tested for variants of concern, both strains were found in two tests.”
It’s been reported that the researchers couldn’t say whether the co-infection played a role in her rapid deterioration.
