Lambda Covid variant with ‘unusual set of mutations’ sparks fears – detected in 31 nations. Lambda variant: New strain of Covid could be more lethal than Delta
A NEW coronavirus variant has sparked fears after being detected in 31 countries including the UK.

The Lambda strain was first identified late last year in Peru, which has the world’s highest death rate per capita, and now makes up around 80 percent of the country’s cases. And in June it was listed as a “variant of interest” by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Pablo Tsukayama, a doctor in molecular microbiology at the Cayetano Heredia University in Peru’s capital Lima, warned the strain could be more contagious than others.
He said when the variant was first noted in Peru in December it was “just one in every 200 samples”.
Speaking to the Financial Times, he added: “By March, however, it accounted for about 50 percent of samples in Lima and now it’s about 80 percent.
However, Jairo Méndez Rico, an adviser on emerging viral diseases at the Pan-American Health Organization, said more research was needed on the strain.
He said: “At the moment there’s no evidence to suggest it’s more aggressive than other variants.
“It’s possible that it has a higher rate of contagion but more work needs to be done on it.”
The WHO named Lambda as its seventh “variant of interest” on June 14.
These strains are thought to be less of a threat than the four “variants of concern” – Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta.
On June 23, Public Health England (PHE) listed Lambda as a variant under investigation “due to international expansion and several notable mutations”.
Jeff Barrett, director of the Covid-19 Genomics Initiative at the Wellcome Sanger Institute in the UK, said the strain has an “unusual set of mutations”.
He said: “One reason why it is hard to make sense of the threat from Lambda, using computational and lab data, is that it has rather an unusual set of mutations, compared with other variants.”
Mr Barrett added that a lack of genetic sequencing facilities in Latin America, which has been badly hit by the pandemic, means it is unclear how far Lambda is causing the outbreaks.
In Britain, where the Delta variant is dominant, the strain currently only accounts for less than 0.1 percent of cases.
PHE data released last Friday showed UK cases of the Delta variant, first identified in India, had risen almost four-fold in less than a month.
Lambda variant: New strain of Covid could be more lethal than Delta – professor
THE WORLD is caught in the grip of the Delta variant but a professor has warned that the new Lambda variant is more transmissible. What do we know so far about the variant?

The Delta variant, which first appeared in India, has been spreading rampantly through much of the world. Developing and rich countries alike have not escaped its wrath, although vaccination rates remain pitifully low in much of the former, raising fears of overwhelmed healthcare systems. While this is all happening, a new variant has been spreading like wildfire.
However, the country has low vaccination rates, making it uniquely vulnerable to new variants.
The Lambda strain is on the World Health Organization’s radar. It has so far been spotted in at least 30 countries already, including Britain.
It is thought to have originated in Peru, accounting for almost 81 percent of the country’s caseload since April.
Doctors in the South American nation fear it is more transmissible than any other variants, based on how quickly it has spread in the country over the past four months.
Professor Pablo Tsukayama, Cayetano Heredia University, said the strain has “exploded” in Peru, with the new variant responsible for 82 percent of current cases.
He told the Financial Times that it made up just one in every 200 samples back in December, when it was first detected.
“That would suggest its rate of transmission is higher than any other variant,” Professor Tsukayama said.
The strain, also known to scientists as C.37, was marked as a “variant of interest” by the WHO last month because of its high transmissibility.
However, the jury is currently out on whether it will overtake the Delta variant.
Coronavirus-tracking researchers have yet to establish the virus is any more transmissible than existing strains.
Nonetheless, the variant’s rapid spread is concerning, particularly in regions with low vaccination rates.
The Lambda variant was detected in a traveller undergoing hotel quarantine in New South Wales in April, according to the national genomics database AusTrakka.
While there is no evidence to suggest the strain has started to spread among the community in Australia, the development raises concerns because the country lags behind others in terms of vaccination rates.
The latest figures suggest around 7.4 percent of the population have been vaccinated, amounting to 1.88 million.
In contrast, Britain has vaccinated over 50 percent of its population, with around 33.7 million people fully jabbed.
The vaccine rollout in Australia has been particularly challenging due to the way it has been logistically handled.
It has not been overseen from the Federal government and distributed out. Rather, the state and federal governments have divided the task between them.
Although there are no signs the Lambda variant is spreading in Australia, other health experts have echoed fears about its potential.
Dr Jeffrey Barrett, head of Britain’s Covid-19 Genomics Initiative at the Welcome Sanger Institute, told the FT: “Lambda has a unique pattern of seven mutations in the spike protein that the virus uses to infect human cells.
“Researchers are particularly intrigued by one mutation called L452Q, which is similar to the L452R mutation to contribute to the high infectiousness of the Delta variant.”
The vaccine rollout is not uniform across Australia, as the state and federal governments have divided the task between them.

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
