A more infectious strain of COVID-19, which spreads 50% more actively than its summer variant, could have appeared in the United States.
“This fall and winter spike [in the U.S. epidemic] was nearly double the rate of increase during the spring and summer outbreaks. This acceleration suggests that the U.S. may have developed its own variant [COVID-19] in addition to the British species that is already spreading in our country,” the White House report said.
It is noted that the detected strain may be 50% more infectious than the previous one.Also, Western media, citing data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported that the “British” variant of the coronavirus has been detected in eight U.S. states.
We are talking about 63 cases diagnosed in New York, California, Florida, Colorado, Texas, Georgia, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. It is noted that the states of California and Florida are considered affected by this strain of the virus. In addition, according to the CDC, the U.S. has not emerged its own type of virus.
A leading infectious disease researcher Anthony Fauci believes that the “British” strain of the coronavirus has spread in the United States much more widely than it has been able to identify.
Almost 290,000 cases of COVID-19 infection have been identified in the United States over the past 24 hours. In all, more than 22.4 million cases of the virus and more than 378,100 deaths have been diagnosed in the country. In all, more than 13.2 million people have been cured. The United States currently ranks first in the world in terms of the number of cases of the virus detected and the number of deaths.
