UK: Gisaid shows nearly 4,000 cases of B.1.617 coronavirus variant across the UK
The latest data from Gisaid.org shows nearly 4,000 cases of B.1.617+ have been found in the UK and submitted to the database. This figure includes all sub-lineages including B.1.617.2, B.1.617.1 and B.1.617.3, although the latter two are still found at a relatively low level in the UK compared to B.1.617.2.
B.1.617.2 is still looking like it will outcompete B.1.1.7 across the entire UK within a short period of time.
