Scientists at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology in Hyderabad say that the N440K COVID-19 variant is not the dominant strain in India’s second wave of the virus.

A news report falsely suggested the variant was new and 15 times more virulent than other strains, but the variant was discovered in South India last year, and there is no evidence that it’s more transmissible than other variants.
