(CNN)A global study has found strong evidence that a new form of the coronavirus has spread from Europe to the US. The new mutation makes the virus more likely to infect people but does not seem to make them any sicker than earlier variations of the virus, an international team of researchers reported Thursday.
"It is now the dominant form infecting people," Erica Ollmann Saphire of the La Jolla Institute for Immunology and the Coronavirus Immunotherapy Consortium, who worked on the study, told CNN.
"This is now the virus."
The study,  https://www.cell.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0092-8674%2820%2930820-5" rel="nofollow - published in the journal Cell,  builds on some earlier work the team did that was  https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.29.069054v1" rel="nofollow - released on a preprint server  earlier in the year. Shared information on genetic sequences had indicated that a certain mutant version of the virus was taking over.
    Now the team has not only checked more genetic sequences, but they have also run experiments involving people, animals and cells in lab dishes that show the mutated version is more common and that it's more infectious than other versions.
