People infected with the coronavirus variant found in the UK are up to 64% more likely to die than those with other strains

Medical workers bring a patient out of an ambulance outside Royal London Hospital, in London, January 15, 2021. A coronavirus variant first detected in the UK is deadlier than the original version of the virus. People infected with the strain, B.1.1.7, are 55% to 64% more likely to die from COVID-19. Existing vaccines seem to work against B.1.1.7, though other variants can evade vaccine-induced antibodies. See more stories on Insider's business page. The data is in: People infected w...
