The coronavirus mutation from England, which is considered particularly contagious, was already in Germany in November. The Lower Saxony Ministry of Health announced this on Monday evening. It was subsequently detected by the Hannover Medical School in a case of infection in November.
According to the ministry, the patient’s daughter was in England in November and is believed to have been infected there. The daughter and wife of the deceased have now recovered. There are no further infections in connection with these cases, according to the ministry.
The first case in which the coronavirus mutation was detected from England became known a few days ago. A woman from Great Britain entered Baden-Württemberg on December 20, and the mutated variant B1.1.7 was also detected. But the case in Lower Saxony is now the earliest evidence of the mutation, which is considered particularly contagious, in Germany.
