Brazilian scientists find convergent mutation of variant P.1 with Delta

In an article in Exame magazine that highlights the importance of the genetic mapping of the coronavirus, Genov, Dasa's genomic surveillance project, was mentioned as the top entity in Brazil responsible for identifying variants of the virus. According to Genov coordinator and Dasa virologist Jose Eduardo Levi, this mutation has already been observed in other variants around the world, including all variants of concern, but was not very common in Gamma. "We have noticed, however, an increase in its occurrence in Brazilian samples," he said.
