Beijing’s decision to let the virus rip across China following years of strict restrictions also sparked fears that the country would see the emergence of a new variant, which could potentially evade current treatments and vaccines.

The Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that no new mutations of the virus have been discovered.
