Better understand the impact of virus variants

Published on

According to studies, variants appear when an error (mutation) occurs in the replication of the virus in our body. The virus that has benefited from these mutations can become more virulent than its initial version and therefore spread more easily in the population.

Being more contagious, they affect more categories of people and at the same time increase the risk of complications and mortality.

The appearance of variants in Quebec therefore requires more rigorous application due to the increased risk of transmission.

These preventive measures are necessary in order to provide better protection for the people around you such as your family, friends, work colleagues, but also for the general population..
