Health authorities in Beijing said they have identified the novel coronavirus behind Beijing's recent locally transmitted COVID-19 cases as the mutant strain first found in Britain.


Pang Xinghuo, deputy director of the Beijing center for disease control and prevention, told a press briefing Wednesday that the new strain was found on the two confirmed cases reported in Daxing District on Sunday.


The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention reviewed the finding and concluded it was the same mutant strain spreading in Britain, she said, adding that it is now believed that the strain arrived from overseas.


Beijing reported seven new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, of which six were in the Ronghui residential compound in Daxing.



The Chinese mainland on Wednesday reported 144 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 126 locally transmitted and 18 arriving from outside the mainland, the National Health Commission said Thursday.


Of the locally transmitted cases, 68 were reported in Heilongjiang, 33 in Jilin, 20 in Hebei, two each in Beijing and Shanxi, and one in Shandong, the commission said in its daily report.


Five suspected cases arriving from outside the mainland were newly reported in Shanghai, said the commission, adding that no deaths related to the disease were reported on Wednesday.
