Detection of SARS-CoV-2 P681H Spike Protein Variant in ACEGID Lab, Nigeria.

As viruses replicate and transfer from person to person, changes (mutations) can occur in these viruses. These mutations can lead to new variants of the virus being formed. Mutations can also either be a meaningless tweak or the virus alters itself in such a way that it can spread more easily and cause more infections. …
