Newest Most Contagious Strain of COVID-19 Arrives in US; first case is registered in Colorado


#Colorado authorities reported #Tuesday the first case in the #United #States of a person infected with the variant of the coronavirus loaded with mutations that originated in the #United #Kingdom.

The #Colorado state laboratory confirmed the case to the #United #States CDC.

“The individual is a man in his 20s who is currently isolated in #Elbert #County and has no travel history,” #Gov. #Jared #Polis reported in a statement posted on his networks.

The health authorities are investigating the case, while the man recovers in isolation. #So far no close contacts have been identified, but public health officials are working to identify other possible cases and contacts through contact tracing interviews.

“The health and safety of #Coloradans is our top priority and we will monitor this case, as well as all COVID-19 indicators, very closely,” #Polis said.

#This morning #Chile reported that it detected its first case of the new strain, and #Finland reported the same situation on #Monday.

The UK #Health #Ministry found the new variant on #December 23, and explained that it has a greater ease of transmission.
