COVID Strain : New COVID strain patient found in Italy


Italy has found a patient with the new coronavirus strain, that was also found, in Britain, the health ministry announced on Sunday.


Several European countries and others, such as Kuwait, have banned flights to and from the United Kingdom, in hopes of blocking the new strain which is sweeping across southern England from establishing a strong foothold on the continent.


The new coronavirus strain is “out of control,” British Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told the BBC News.


Globally, the number of coronavirus infection crosses 76 million, with nearly 1.7 million deaths recorded. More than 43 million have recovered.
