The patient was in the southern part of the state, #Newsom told #White #House coronavirus advisor #Dr. #Anthony #Fauci during a live Q&A session livestreamed on #Facebook.

“I don’t think that the #Californians should feel that this is something odd. #This is something that’s expected,” #Fauci told #Newsom.

#On #Tuesday, #Colorado health officials confirmed the nation’s first case of the B.1.1.7 coronavirus variant. #During a press briefing #Wednesday, #Colorado #Gov. #Jared #Polis said the state was investigating a potential second case of the new strain.

#This is a developing story. #Please check back later for updates.
