According to a report from BBC, a new mutated coronavirus had just been reported in London UK. It is described “out of control” and “very infectious”. Following this, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Holland, Belgium, and Bulgaria have all banned flights from The UK.

According to the report, this  new mutated variant of Coronavirus has spread quickly in London and south-east England.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday had to introduce a new level of restrictions for those areas, telling Britons to scrap any planned Christmas festivities, travel or gatherings.

Around 9 am today, The UK recorded almost 36,000 new cases in the last 24 hours. This had been the highest ever daily increase in Covid cases in the UK since the pandemic started. The newly mutated virus had been held responsible for this sudden hike in the number of cases from the virus.

 According to the Public Health in England, the mutated virus had been out since September but last week, the UK officials felt they had enough scientific evidence to declare surely, that it has higher transmissibility than other circulating coronaviruses.
