  • Malaysia has detected a strain of the new coronavirus that’s been found to be 10 times more infectious.
  • The mutation called D614G has been found in the country.
  • The same strain was also detected in another cluster in people coming back from the Philippines.
  • It is speculated that the strain could mean that existing studies on vaccines may be incomplete or ineffective against the mutation.
  • However, World Health Organization (WHO) has said no evidence suggests that the mutation could cause more severe disease.
