The British government has declared that it will offer Pakistan with genome sequence sequence aid in combating new COVID-19 variations.

Pakistan will receive UK knowledge and support through the UK Government's New Variant Assessment Platform (NVAP) Programme, according to a statement from the British High Commission in Islamabad.

She told the media that recent developments reflect the best of Great Britain-Pakistan relationship and Britain'S commitment to assist Pakistan in developing a better response from the consequences of COVID-19. The High Commissioner of Pakistan, Dr. Christian Turner, stated.

The NIH programme would provide the National Institute for Health (NIH), Islamabad, with the know-how on genomic sequencing.

In January this year, the UK Government created NVAP to allow nations to identify and evaluate novel strains of Coronavirus throughout the world by increasing their capacity and offering knowledge.

It is worth noting that a number of Coronavirus variations in Pakistan were confirmed by the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) on Wednesday.
