The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has brought about the need for the implementation of Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) by governments and public health departments to fight the spread of the virus. Belarus, a small country in the eastern part of Europe implemented a small amount of NPI protocols to control the spread of the virus.
This thesis focuses on the usage of genomic epidemiological methods to analyze the origin and spread of SARS-CoV-2 in Belarus. Results showed that the number of case introductions and exports to other countries are indeed substantial. It was detected that the Belarussian SARS-CoV-2 genetic diversity originated from at least eighteen separate introductions from different geographical regions.
