In the United States, for the first time, experts recorded a case of infection with a new strain of coronavirus, which was previously identified in Britain, in the country.
It is noted that a covid mutant was found in a man in Colorado. This was announced by its governor Jared Polis.
– In Colorado, the first case of infection with the COVID-19 B.1.1.7 variety – the same one that was found in the UK – was detected, he said.
According to Polis, the sick man is between the ages of 20 and 29. He is now in isolation. However, it is known that recently he did not make long trips.
“We don’t know much about this new type of coroanvirus infection yet, but colleagues in the United Kingdom are warning the whole world that this strain is much more infectious,” said the Governor of Colorado.
Recall, according to the latest data in America for the entire time of the pandemic, more than 19 million people were infected with the “corona”, of which 336 thousand died.
