Mutation of the virus came in a menacing manner, one east one west close to China’s doorstep

In a recent interview with CCTV News, Zhong Nanshan said that China is seeing an increase in some local cases, which may be related to environmental and physical transmission.
Zhong pointed out that wearing masks, washing hands and keeping a distance are important ways to prevent environmental and physical transmission from person to person.
On the other hand, Zhong Nanshan also said that the monitoring of foreign articles should be strengthened.
In recent days, however, Zhong’s fears have come to pass as the mutated virus has spread rapidly around the world.

According to “Asahi Shimbun” reported, Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases announced on February 18 that a new variant novel coronavirus has been found in Japan.
