The chief executive of the world's largest genomic sequencing technology company has called for global co-operation to track new virus variants, arguing it is essential to ensure that Covid-19 vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics do not fail in the face of new strains. Francis De Souza, who leads the Californian company Illumina, said governments and companies should create a “global surveillance network” to monitor and share information on the virus, just as many have tried to do with threats from computer viruses. Illumina, whose shares have soared 60 per cent in the past year, has been expanding its capacity to build the sequencers and deliver the materials they need to run.
