Denmark: 84% of #coronavirus sequences are B.1.1.7 UK variant

B.1.1.7, Coronavirus, Denmark, Europe, Health, Infection, Mutation, Testing, Vaccine, Variants

At week 8, with approximately 70% sequencing of all positive PCR samples, virus variant B.1.1.7 accounted for 76.5% of them. In week 9, where so far there is a result from 59% of the sequenced samples, B.1.1.7’s share has increased to 84% of the samples.

The proportion infected with virus variant B.1.1.7 is thus now so high that it is no longer relevant to separate this variant from the other circulating variants. The contact number will in future be calculated together for all positive PCR samples, regardless of variant.
