COVID update - a new form of Coronavirus

 Over the last few days, scientists have identified a new variant of coronavirus which may be associated with the faster spread in the South East of England. 

SAGE and government agencies are closely monitoring the spread of this variant in the UK, but there is currently nothing to suggest that this variant is more likely to cause serious disease.

 It is considered unlikely at this stage that the vaccine will prove to be ineffective against this variant.

 But it shows that we have to remain vigilant, and the essential steps to prevent the virus spreading remain the same: Hands, Face, Space.
