covid pandemic 

Two variants have merged into heavily mutated coronavirus

The hybrid virus is the result of recombination of the highly transmissible B.1.1.7 variant discovered in the UK and the B.1.429 variant that originated in California and which may be responsible for a recent wave of cases in Los Angeles because it carries a mutation making it resistant to some antibodies.

If confirmed, the recombinant would be the first to be detected in this pandemic.
