Coronavirus: Globetrotter

While writing an article on the various mutations and progression of the Sars-CoV-2 virus, I wanted to make this graphic, which was inspired by the data on the Global Initiative in Sharing All Influenza Data (GISAID) website and a piece published in the Scientific American.


The idea was to figure out what the Indian situation is, because there is an argument that the there are two strains of the virus in the country - one from Europe, and the other from the Middle East/Oceania.


The European strain (G clade), which has caused havoc in Italy and Spain and the East Coast of the United States, is said to be more virulent, according to preliminary research, which is still pending peer-review.
