First whole genome sequences and phylogenetic analysis of SARS-CoV-2 virus isolates during COVID-19 outbreak in Tunisia, North Africa.

Abstract : Full genomes sequences of six Tunisian SARS-CoV-2 strains were obtained from imported and locally transmission cases during the COVID-19 outbreak. Reported sequences were non-identical with 0.1% nucleotide divergence rate and clustered into 6 different clades with worldwide sequences. SNPs results favor the distribution of the reported Tunisian sequences into 3 major genotypes. These results indicate multiple introductions of the virus in Tunisia and add new genomic data on SARS-CoV-2 at the international level.
