The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has caused respiratory disease (COVID-19) pandemic around the world. The coronavirus spike glycoprotein (S) is a type I transmembrane protein that contains the S1 and S2 subunits and it interacts with the host cell angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) to facilitate viral genome entry (1). The Kappa variant (B.1.617.1 lineage) was first discovered in India and the mutations in the spike protein have reduced susceptibility to both monoclonal antibodies and convalescent plasma (2). Mutation E484Q increases the binding potential to ACE2 and mutation D614G increases viral infectivity (3). P681R mutation in the furin cleavage site promotes the cleavage rate of the S1-S2 making the virus more transmissible and more infectious (3). As new variants displace the first-wave virus, it is pivotal to evaluate their transmissibility, virulence, and their possible tendency to escape antibody neutralization (4).
