Ukraine Fatalities Spike to 727 - One Day Total 29. -- (Recombinomics)

 

 The increases in deaths in Ukraine has attracted international attention because sequences from initial cases had receptor binding domain changes at position 225 (D225G and D225N).  These results have led to further analysis by other countries, and sequences released from lung samples for patients in three regions of Russia also had D225G, raising concerns that the change was becoming more widespread, which could lead to a catastrophic wave in the upcoming weeks....

The recent sequences from Russia are distinct from each other signaling continued expansion of D225G/N via recombination, which is also happening with the Tamiflu resistance marker H274Y . Patients with both markers have increased concerns that a much more virulent H1N1 could also be resistant to Tamiflu and Peramivir....
