What makes a variant a variant of concern?

Coronacast 4 de marzo de 2021 25

share close

It seems we can’t go a day without some new coronavirus variant popping up somewhere in the world.

There’s the so-called UK variant, the Brazil variant, the Californian variant and now the Russian variant.

And to make it even more confusing, the name of the variant doesn’t necessarily mean that’s where the variant actually came from.

So on today’s Coronacast, what are the variants? What is with their names and why are some concerning and others a bit boring?

Also on today’s show:

* What is the likelihood of simultaneous infection of two different variants of COVID-19?

* Can you suggest or recommend any strategies for those who suffer from needle phobia but would still like to get vaccinated?

* A clarification on our use of the word «average»

And it’s time for some more Quick Fire Friday!
