The B1.1.529 variant has a large number of mutations -South African and @WHO experts are investigating the variant. While there are still many unknowns we know masks, physical distancing, good ventilation and washing hands can stop #COVID19.

#SouthAfrica🇿🇦 has moved swiftly to identify the B1.1.529 variant. This is an impressive display of its surveillance and genome sequencing strengths. I also applaud the government for moving quickly to alert the world. Speed, science and transparency will defeat #COVID19.
