Scientists in Iceland claim they have found 40 mutations of the coronavirus, which has left the world gripped in fear. The mutations were discovered by analyzing COVID-19 patients in Iceland, where 600 cases have been reported.

Using genetic sequencing, the researchers identified how many mutations the virus had accumulated. These genetic variants can act as the fingerprints of the virus to indicate where in the world it originated.
The Icelandic scientists were able to trace the coronavirus back to three European countries – Austria, Italy, and England. Seven infected people all went to the same, undisclosed football match in England, the team claim.
