So, the Shanghai scientists were able to isolate a strain of a new species of coronavirus from a sample of a sick patient. Now scientists have completed the sequencing and analysis of the genome of the coronavirus COVID-19.
It is noted that this is the first successful case of the allocation of a strain of the coronavirus in Shanghai. The selection of the strain will allow scientists to study variations of the virus in real time and to conduct screening of drugs that will accelerate the research process of the coronavirus.
Recall that in China recorded the highest number of deaths per day from coronavirus. For the past day killed 254 people, were recorded 15 152 new cases of the disease. This is due to start using a new method of determination of coronavirus, which allows you to speed up the results.
