Table showing the levels of risk for several COVID-19 variants, including transmissibility, disease severity and effect on the immune response. Shows high confirmed impacts for UK-Kent, India, Brazil and South Africa variants.
Based on studies to May 2021. "Possible" refers to evidence of impact based on only one or two early studies, or contradicting studies. "Confirmed impact" requires multiple quality early studies or a peer-reviewed paper in a reputable journal. "High impact" requires same study threshold, but evidence shows a strong - and therefore more concerning - outcome. *Refers to studies on neutralising antibody therapeutics.
