The situation is the most serious of this is Florida, which has 3,191 related cases. The surge in Michigan cases is also linked to this variant COVID-19, with 1,649 related cases. In addition, these strains are more infectious and more lethal than early strains.
CDC also updated the transmission of two other types of mutant COVID-19. In 32 states and Washington, D.C., a total of 374 patients were infected with the variant virus “B.1.351”, which was first discovered in South Africa; in 25 states, 289 patients were infected with the variant virus “P.1”, which was first discovered in Brazil.
