As stated by the scientists from China, another variant from Coronavirus has been emerged. They also issued warnings about NeoCov, a mutation related to the Middle East respiratory syndrome MERS-COV that is linked to outbreaks in the Middle East in 2012 and 2015. The variant is linked to MERS.

The study discovered NeoCov and its close relative, PDF-2180-CoV, can use some types of Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE 2) and human ACE2 for entry. According to the scientists, the new variant could bind to the ACE2 receptor, and it is completely different to Covid-19 pathogen.
The virus contains a combined high mortality rate of MERS-CoV and the high transmission rate of the existing SARS-COV-2 virus. Vector Russian state Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology said that this time, it is not about the emergence of a new coronavirus capable of actively spreading among humans. Till now, World Health Organisation has not clarified anything about the new variant, and there have been no cases of people being infected by NeoCov. But scientists are striving in their research to find if it can infect humans or not.
