UK COVID-19 Variant Taking Over The US

On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control’s Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the United Kingdom’s coronavirus variant is now the most common strain of coronavirus in the United States.

This variant of the virus is called United Kingdom’s coronavirus variant because it was first identified in the United Kingdom.

“Based on our most recent estimates from CDC surveillance, the B.1.1.7 variant (as known as the United Kingdom’s coronavirus variant) is now the most common lineage circulating in the United States,” Walensky said at the White House COVID-19 Response Team briefing.

According to studies, the UK version is more contagious than the initial strain, is potentially more toxic, and is associated with a higher risk of death.

According to the CDC, there are reportedly 16,275 confirmed cases of the B.1.1.7 strain in the United States.
