The effectiveness of antiviral drugs and vaccines may be harmed by a new Covid variant, according to Sajid Javid.


Sajid Javid has warned that a troubling new Covid-19 variant discovered in South Africa could pose a “significant risk to public health.”

The Health Secretary told MPs that “no detected cases” of the “Nu” variant had been found in the UK at this time.

However, he stated that the strain has “highly likely” spread to other countries, with “early indications” that it would spread even faster than the Delta variant.

He warned that the variant could reduce the effectiveness of covid vaccines and anti-viral drugs.

This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
