  • The preprint is the outcome of a great collaboration with our Palestinian colleagues, Nouar Qutob, Zaidoun Salah, Hisham Darwish and others, and my wonderful collaborators Damien Richard and @LucyvanDorp. 5/ https://t.co/myVYP82moI

  • We estimate the age of introduction of this 'Palestinian lineage' to early February, suggesting #SARSCoV2 was already in circulation in Palestine around a month before its first detection in Bethlehem in early March. 4/ https://t.co/myVYP82moI https://t.co/myVYP82moI

  • In addition to strains belonging to cosmopolitan lineages, we identified one locally predominant lineage represented by a cluster of 50 Palestinian #SARSCoV2, grouping with isolated viral samples from patients in Israel and a single one from the UK. 3/ https://t.co/myVYP82moI

  • Most countries experienced many introductions of #SARSCoV2 during the early stages of the pandemic. Though lockdown policies and restrictions on travel is leading to more geographically structured viral populations and lineages transmitting locally. 2/ https://t.co/myVYP82moI

  • We report the first #SARSCoV2 genomes from Palestine. The strains from Palestine fall across the diversity of the global phylogeny of #SARSCoV2, consistent with at least nine independent introductions of #CIOVID19 into the region. 1/ https://t.co/myVYP82moI https://t.co/myVYP82moI
