Covid News Updates: Maharashtra reports 'first case' of XE Variant, Centre disagrees - The Economic Times

The Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation said that the city has reported India’s first case of the XE variant, which is a mutation of the strains of the Omicron variant and touted to be highly transmissible. However, INSACOG, India’s genomics consortium, claimed that the samples detected in Mumbai, which is said to have the XE strain of Covid-19, do not suggest the presence of the variant after genomic sequencing of the case.
