1. What Happens When a Person Is Simultaneously Infected With Two Different SARS-CoV-2 Variants? (Global Biodefense) Scientists in Brazil recently reported that two people were simultaneously infected with two different variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This co-infection seemed to have no effect on the severity of patients’ illness, and both recovered without needing to be hospitalised. Although this is one of the few such cases recorded with SARS-CoV-2 – and the study is yet to be published in a scientific journal – scientists have observed infections with multiple strains with other respiratory viruses, such as influenza. This has raised questions about how these viruses may interact in an infected person, and what it could mean for generating new variants.

2. Roche Releases Test for SARS-CoV-2 Variants (Homeland Preparedness News) Roche recently announced the launch of a new cobas SARS-CoV-2 Variant Set 1 Test to detect and differentiate between viral variants, recognizing the growing prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 variants, such as those first seen in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Brazil. “Viruses naturally evolve over time,” Thomas Schinecker, CEO of Roche Diagnostics, said. “While most mutations do not have a clinical impact, some variants need to be tracked carefully as they seem to spread more easily and quickly.
