The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) has caused a respiratory disease pandemic worldwide since 2020. The coronavirus spike glycoprotein (S) is a type I transmembrane protein that contains the S1 and S2 subunits and interacts with the host cell angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) to facilitate viral genome entry (1). The IHU variant (B.1.640.2 lineage) was first discovered in southern France, and out of the total 30 amino acid substitutions and 12 deletions in the IHU variant, 14 substitutions and 9 deletions are located in the spike protein. Several of the detected mutations were predicted to significantly affect neutralizing epitopes (2). As new variants displace the first-wave virus, it is pivotal to evaluate their transmissibility, virulence, and their possible tendency to escape antibody neutralization (3).
