Join the Dornsife COVID-19 Journal Club for a discussion of the paper “Emergence and rapid spread of a new severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) lineage with multiple spike mutations in South Africa” by Houriiyah Tegally and colleagues from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
Michael LeVasseur, PhD, MPH, assistant professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Dornsife, will discuss the paper, which was uploaded to the MedRxiv preprint server on December 22, 2020.
