Fourteen fresh cases of new mutant coronavirus strain - first reported in the United Kingdom in September - have been registered in India, the government said this morning. India, for the first time on Tuesday, recorded six patients infected with the new strain; all of them are travellers who returned from the UK recently. The new mutated version of the coronavirus detected in the UK and South Africa are significantly more transmissible than other known strains, experts have said. In India, the number is likely to surge. Delhi has recorded the most number of these cases of new virus strain (8), followed by Bengaluru (7).
