COVID-19 variants

Session virtual link: Digital Session, Meeting ID: 912 3891 2132

Session objectives 

  1. To discuss the Impact of COVID-19 variants in Africa.

Session abstract 

Since its emergence in late 2019, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV 2) has given rise to a global pandemic that remains uncontrolled, in part related to the virus’ ability to adapt. Through genomic surveillance of SARSCoV-2, several variants have recently been identified. Although the emergence of viral variants is anticipated with RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, it is critically important to determine the impact of these variants on pandemic control and on therapeutics and vaccines.
