On March 24, it was reported that a new strain of coronavirus with a double mutation has been found in India. “A new double mutation has been detected in the country along with several other variants of the coronavirus,” the country’s health ministry said in a statement. Authorities do not yet have enough information to establish a direct link between the mutation and the rapid increase in cases in some Indian states.
