Scientists and experts in France have reportedly identified a new variant of COVID-19 termed ‘IHU’. The new variant is said to be a more mutated strain than Omicron. The B.1.640.2 variant was discovered at the institute IHU Mediterranee Infection. Researchers believe that it contains 46 mutations. This has more mutations than the Omicron variant of COVID-19. The new variant has been associated with the African country Cameroon. France has reported at least 12 cases of this variant. But, the Omicron strain is still dominating in most parts of the world.
