The virologist, Alexander Kekule, said on a German talk show on Tuesday that the virus is called G variant, which has changed its gene and becomes possibly more contagious than the Wuhan variant. The expert noted that an undetected outbreak of the original virus exploded in northern Italy at the beginning of this year. Before it was discovered in February, the virus had had enough time to optimize in this region, where a more contagious variant came out.
