Ayon sa Phil Genome Center,

“In the month of June, both the D614 as well as the G614 have been detected in a small sample of positive cases.”

Dagdag pa nila,

“Although this information confirms the presence of G614 in the Philippines, we note that all the samples tested were from Quezon City and may not represent the mutational landscape for the whole country”.

Pag-aaral

Samantala, nagkaroon ng pagbabago sa amino acid at position 614 mula sa D (aspartic acid) hanggang G (glycine) kung kaya’t D614G ang mutation name. Sa ngayon ito ay tinukoy na G614 variant.

Pahayag nila,

“However, there is still no definitive evidence showing that carriers of the G614 variant are actually more transmissible than those with D614, and the mutation does not appear to substantially affect clinical outcomes as well.”

Kasalukuyan

Sa ngayon, may naitala na sa Pilipinas na 161,253 kabuuhang bilang ng COVID-19, at may 112,586 naka rekober na samantalang mayroon namang 2,665 deaths.
