Dr Nkengasong said the Nigeria CDC and the African Centre of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases are analysing data but they believe it is different to the other two mutant Covid variants.

‘Give us some time. It’s still very early,’ Dr Nkengasong said.

Many countries around the globe continue to ban flights coming from the UK and South Africa in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

The discouraging news comes as London and the South East continues to battle the new mutant Covid variant, reported to be up to 70 per cent more transmissible than the original virus.
