SARS-CoV-2 virus genome data are used for epidemiological surveillance and control of Covid-19 in Latvia

Scientists from the Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Center in cooperation with the Latvian Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, E. Gulbis Laboratory, Central Laboratory and The Latvian Centre of Infectious Diseases has been studying the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome since April, therefore obtaining significant information on the diversity and variability of the virus in Latvia. With the financial support from the Ministry of Education and Science and the EU Structural Funds, full genome sequences of 133 isolates of SARS-CoV-2 virus circulating in Latvia have been studied, which represent 9.2% of all infection cases in Latvia. After this indicator, Latvia is in one of the first places in the world in virus research. Obtained information about the virus similarity at the genome level is used for epidemiological investigation of Covid-19 infection cases at the Latvian Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
