FIGURES reveal the number of cases and their variants in the Royal Borough as lockdown eases.

With the Indian variant expected to the dominant form of Covid, the Wellcome Sanger Institute accumulated data to form a Covid-19 Genomic Surveillance.

In this data, they found during this time period the Kent variant – B.1.1.7 – was the dominant Covid mutation in the Royal Borough, consistently making up nearly 100 per cent of reported cases from April 24 to May 8.

According to the data, the variant that was originally detected in India – B.1.617.2 – has not appeared in the borough but has been spotted in neighbouring Slough in the week of April 17.

This is now the dominant mutant in Slough, with 50 per cent of recorded cases from May 8 to 15 being B.1.617.2.
