There has been a person in Iceland who has been infected simultaneously with two strains of the coronavirus.

This news came out according to the Reykjavik-based deCODE genetics company.

“We found an individual who had two types of virus; on the one hand the virus with a specific mutation and, on the other, the virus without that mutation,” Kari Stefansson, chief executive of the company

Not only was the patient infected with two strains of the virus but people who came into contact with the patient were only found to have the virus with the mutated strain.

Kari thinks that it could be a coincidence that these people got infected or it could mean that the virus with the mutation is more hostile and severe.

“It could just be coincidence, but it could also mean that the virus with the mutation was more virulent than the one without the mutation.” Kari said  

Currently, he and the company’s staff aren’t sure of the cause for people having the mutated coronavirus.

So, what other findings have the company found?

Welcome to my bio everyone, my name is Nada. Ever since I was little, I have loved animals because they are so loving and kind. All they need is you attention, love, and care but I didn't understand them very well because I didn't get the chance to raise them. Well, That changed when my family and I got our first dog Rocky, a German Shepherd. Rocky was fun and loving with funny quirks. Being loyal and protective of us, he made me see the nature of a German Shepherd. Now, we have another German Shepherd named Mia. She is a wonderful dog and a rescue who just needed a second chance in life. Mia has long grown from being a terrified dog to the brave and caring German Shepherd that she is today. P.S: Here is a picture of our beautiful German Shepherd, Mia.
