Remove spaces from fasta file in python

1

I have downloaded Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 isolate FASTA sequence but when I tried to get the exact length and C and G count I got the wrong answer every time.

Script:

genome = open("C://Users//USER//Desktop/Corona.fasta")
dna = genome.read()
dna1 = dna.rstrip("n")
print(len(dna1))

The exact length of the sequence is 29903 without a header 30018 but I don't understand why I am not getting 30018 although I am using strip function as well

Plz help me

29903
