Shimla, April 5

The first case of the UK variant of the virus has been confirmed in the state. The sample of a woman doctor posted in Solan, who had tested positive after taking both doses of the vaccine on March 12, has tested positive for the UK variant of the virus. The samples were sent to the National Centre for Disease Control, New Delhi, and the report was received on Monday.

“She has tested positive for the UK variant. There’s, however, no need for alarm as she has recovered,” said National Health Mission Director Nipun Jindal.

Subsequently, following the sudden surge in the number of cases in the border districts, the government has sent around 550 samples for genome sequencing to Delhi.

The report of all these samples is awaited.
