广东省报告输入性冠状病毒变异病例

An imported coronavirus variant case has been detected in south China’s Guangdong Province, the provincial center for disease control and prevention said on Sunday.

周日,广东省疾病预防控制中心表示,该省发现一例输入性冠状病毒变异病例。

The individual is an 18-year-old Chinese national who studies in Britain. He arrived in the provincial capital Guangzhou from Britain on Dec. 4 and was quarantined immediately. He tested positive for the novel coronavirus and was diagnosed as a confirmed mild COVID-19 case on Dec. 18.

此人是一名在英国留学的18岁中国公民。他于12月4日从英国抵达广州,随即被隔离。他的新型冠状病毒检测呈阳性,12月18日被确诊为轻度COVID-19确诊病例。

Gene sequencing analysis on Dec. 27 showed the patient had the coronavirus variant B.1.1.7, which highly resembles the strain recently reported in Britain. The variant was confirmed following a high-throughput sequencing double-check on Jan. 2.

12月27日的基因测序分析显示,该患者携带的冠状病毒变种是B.1.1.7,与英国最近报道的毒株高度相似。该变种在1月2日的高通量测序复查后得到确认。

According to the center, the B.1.1.7 coronavirus variant has a stronger transmission capacity but its symptoms, fatality rate and the risk of severe cases are basically the same. The vaccines that have been developed are also effective against the new strain.

据中心介绍,B.1.1.7型冠状病毒具有较强的传播能力,但其症状、致死率和重症病例风险基本相同。已经开发的疫苗对这种新毒株也有效。

The individual is under further medical observation after being discharged from hospital.

患者出院后正在接受进一步医学观察。
