(Reuters)-According to a publication run by the China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), China has detected the first imported case of a new coronavirus variant that is rapidly spreading throughout the UK.

Scientists say the infection rate is 40-70% higher than the original virus, and countries around the world are blocking travel links to the UK to prevent the spread of new variants.

According to the latest edition of China CDC Weekly, published Wednesday, the variant was detected in a 23-year-old female student returning from the UK to China and tested in Shanghai on December 14.

The incident “poses a great potential threat to the prevention and management of COVID-19 in China,” the magazine said.

Researchers performed gene sequencing on a sample of patients on December 24 and discovered that the strain was a mutant known as “VUI202012 / 01,” the publication said.

Mutants contain genetic mutations that, in theory, could spread COVID-19 more easily among people.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said last week that China would suspend direct flights to the United Kingdom indefinitely.

According to the publication, the patient in Shanghai was transferred to a designated medical institution for quarantine and an investigation into her close contact began.
