As Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc in India, a new variant of SARS-CoV-2 'N440K' has been discovered in several parts of the country. Reports say the variant, a concern in South India, is at least 15 times more lethal than the earlier ones. Current data shows that it is slowly being replaced by new variants of concerns such as B.1.617 (dubbed double-mutant variant) and B.1.1.7 (variant identified in UK).
