India variant: Which mutations does the India 'double mutant' variant have?

96

The scientific community has given the Indian variant the official designation B.1.617.

Within B.1.617 are a selection of mutations, two of which have been identified as of particular concern.

Named L452R and E484Q, they have led some people to dub B.1.617 a “double mutant”.

Both of these have previously appeared in other viruses.
