variant had a transmission advantage over the other types of the virus," says Wenseleers, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Leuven in Belgium.

The variant first detected in the U.K., called B.1.1.7, is indeed more transmissible and likely the most contagious version of the virus known.

"Based on this data, the new variant from India has a very big transmission or growth advantage," even over B.1.1.7, he says.

At the same time, the new variant that emerged in India, known as B.1.617, began to dominate the outbreak in several Indian states.
