New variants of the virus that causes Covid-19 are also identified in South Africa and Brazil. There are concerns that the new mutants can spread more easily than the original virus, although it has not been scientifically proved that they are deadlier or more resistant to vaccine.

It says quickly identifying new variants is critical because they threaten to make treatments and diagnostics ineffective, and to make the pandemic harder to control. The collaboration may involve Indonesia’s Research and Technology Ministry and Jakarta-based Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology who already have the capability to genome sequence viruses.
