“Some Evidence” UK Coronavirus Strain More Deadly: Boris Johnson

The coronavirus strain that has swept Britain and beyond in recent months could be more deadly as well as more transmissible, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday.

The sobering news came as the UK sees record deaths from Covid-19, following a surge in cases and hospitalisations since the variant was first identified in southeast England in September.

The strain has also spread to more than 60 nations — including China, where the pandemic began more than a year ago — according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
