Pakistani strain of coronavirus has less potent chromosomes than the Chinese one: Dr. Atta-ur-Rehman

Former chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Prof Dr. Atta-ur-Rehman said on Monday that new research suggests that the strain of coronavirus spreading in Pakistan is not similar to the one that originated in China’s Wuhan.

The respected Pakistani scientist, who specializes in organic chemistry, said the Chinese strain of the coronavirus has different chromosomes than the Pakistani variant.

The scientist said the revelation came during recent research carried out at the Jamil-ur-Rahman Center for Genome Research at the University of Karachi.
