Description

The UK variant, or as it's known the Kent variant or B117, is taking over the United Kingdom and other countries it's spread to.

It's dominance is due to it to being far more transmissible than other variants, but according to new research just being more contagious doesn't mean it's more deadly.

In fact, the study has found that it might be less deadly in people with severe COVID-19.

But as with all things coronavirus, conditions apply.

That's on today's Coronacast.
