COVID-19 News: Due to pressure from the WHO and mounting comments from governments from various countries, Chines government scientists from Shanghai dumped a huge number of SARS-CoV-2 genomic sequences on GISAID in the last 12 hours, with many resembling common variants found elsewhere including typical BF.7 and BA.5.2 variants. https://gisaid.org/
Many other international researchers remain skeptical and do not think China is truly disclosing all the genomic sequences and believe that many new interesting variants and sub-lineages spotting new mutations that are possibly causing disease severity and increased risk of mortality are being kept concealed.
In fact, many international scientists and health authorities now believe that a solution to obtaining a better perspective of how the virus is evolving in China and also possibly detecting new emerging variants in China that could be concerning is to subject all arriving travelers from China to stringent testing and also genomic sequencing while the are placed in quarantine.
There is no proper explanation as to what is driving catastrophic rates of SARS-CoV-2 infections in China along with increased manifestations of disease severity and hospitalizations along with higher risk of mortality.
