  • The Japanese Health Ministry has found a coronavirus variant in people arriving from Brazil that’s different from the ones in Britain and South Africa.
  • The variant was found in airport tests on a man in his 40s, a woman in her 30s and two teens, the ministry said on 10 Jan.
  • Japan was working with other nations, the WHO and other medical experts to analyse the new version of the virus, and it was still unclear whether available vaccines would work.
