Japan has registered a new COVID-19 strain, not seen anywhere else.
What Happened: Japan has found a new COVID-19 strain, different from those registered in the UK and South Africa, Nikkei Asia has reported. Four people — women and men of different age groups — who arrived at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on Jan. 2 from Brazil tested positive at the airport.
The symptoms they experienced included fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.
The strain seemed similar to the one registered in South Africa and the UK, but it also had differences, making it a different mutation of the virus.
Overall, 34 cases of this new strain have been found in the country, according to Nikkei Asia.
