Several SARS-CoV-2 variants have emerged that range from having increased transmissibility to comparable or even potentially increased severity of disease. New information is rapidly emerging, and scientists are working to learn more about these variants and the mutations within their genomes to better understand how easily they might be transmitted, whether they may confer increased virulence, the effectiveness of currently authorized vaccines against them, and more. These epidemiological surveillance studies are critical for our collective fight to slow the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
