Fastnews Nigeria reports THE NEW VARIANT SYMPTOMS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT.
Six cases of the Brazilian variant of coronavirus have been found in the UK – and health officials have no idea where one of them is.
An urgent alert was issued tonight to find the person infected with the P.1 variant – first seen in the city of Manaus – after it was found in a Covid test in England without a name on it.
The person did not fill in their test registration card and there are fears they could be passing the mutant strain on to others.
Two cases were found in the same household in South Gloucestershire in England. One of those people flew from Sao Paulo to London via Zurich.
Three were Scottish residents who flew from Brazil to London and then on to Aberdeen.
Officials are now desperate to identify and isolate the mystery person and have appealed to anyone who took a Covid test on February 12 or 13 and has not received a result, or did not complete their test registration card, to call 119 in England or 0300 303 2713 in Scotland as soon as possible.
