Scientists of Comenius University in Bratislava are working to uncover the full genetic information of the new virus in Slovakia.
They have already analysed isolates from the first Slovak patients, and the genomes are now part of the international GISAID database, as reported by the TASR newswire.
"Knowledge about genomes can help us better control the spread of disease or trace the disease," said Tomáš Szemes of the UK’s Faculty of Natural Sciences.
Experts from the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Comenius University (UK) are, moreover, prepared to help Slovakia test people suspected of having the coronavirus.
