United Kingdom to offer genomics resources for global COVID fight

  • Health experts thought the UK variant of COVID-19 just spread faster now data shows it could also be more deadly

In a speech on Tuesday, the Health Secretary will say that the United Kingdom will offer its expertise to countries which lack the resources to carry out such work, in a bid to keep ahead of mutations.

In the speech, Mr Hancock is expected to say that the pandemic has shown us how much our daily lives are contingent on the health of our neighbours and people across the world.

Matt Hancock, who will unveil the new initiative in a speech as part of the UK's presidency of the G7 group of developed nations, will say: "When one of us suffers, we all suffer".

"So we must work to promote health security in every single part of the world. Not only will this Platform help us better understand this virus and how it spreads, but it will also boost global capability in this important field, so we're all better prepared for whatever lies ahead". In due course, it will be led by the National Institute for Health Protection (NIHP) and will involve PHE laboratories and staff as well as academic partner capabilities. Genomic testing is crucial to our efforts to control the virus - it allows us to keep an eye on how the virus is changing and to respond before it's too late.

Britain will offer its genomics expertise to countries lacking resources to identify new variants of the virus that causes COVID-19, the government was set to announce Tuesday.

British laboratories will work directly on samples sent from overseas or will provide "expert advice and support remotely" where needed, said the government.

Moore said the Kingston case was not linked to a recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus variant at a long-term care facility in Barrie. The offer could include training and resources as well as personnel and equipment.

Countries will be able to apply for assistance by contacting the World Health Organization where an existing channel does not already exist with the UK.

New variants of the coronavirus have alarmed scientists, and prime minister Boris Johnson has warned the prospect of a "vaccine-busting" variant could mean that lockdown measures are needed for longer and new travel restrictions are introduced. All three variants are thought to be more transmissible.
