China Insider: Dangerous COVID-19 Variants Rage Around the World

February 2, 2021 Updated: February 2, 2021

By Jan. 30, excluding mainland China, there were nearly 103 million confirmed COVID-19 infections worldwide, and more than 2.2 million deaths. A more concerning issue is that the UK and South African variants are both raging around the world, and they are more transmissible than the previous strains. In addition, the South African variant is able to resist antibodies, making the existing vaccines less effective. So far, this variant has been detected in more than 30 countries.
