THE “KENT VARIANT”
The “Kent variant” of the coronavirus has a mutation called E484K.
“Even in the worst case scenario, vaccines can be redesigned and tweaked to be a better match in a matter or weeks or months, if necessary, say experts.”
“It’s not unexpected that variants are appearing or that they will continue to change — all viruses mutate as they make new copies of themselves to spread and thrive.”
“A silver lining may be that the variants are mutating in a similar way rather than diverging from each other.”
