CNN reports on possible emergence of new Covid-19 strain in U.S.

A new, more contagious strain of coronavirus may have emerged in the U.S., spreading 50% more active than the summer variant, CNN reports, citing the latest report from the White House task force on coronavirus.

“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 of the coronavirus in addition to the British species that is already spreading in our country,” the report cited by the television station said.
It said the new strain “could be 50 percent more contagious.”
