Ohio State Scientists Discover New, More Infectious COVID-19 Variant

Similar to the U.K. strain, the variant developed on its own here in the U.S.

Scientists at Ohio State University have discovered a new variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 and they found the evolution of another strain.

The variant has the same mutation as the U.K. strain, but developed on its own here in the U.S.

In a release, the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center said the variant was found in one patient from Ohio so they do not know how common it is yet. Ohio State said this is significant because researchers are seeing the virus develop in similar ways in different parts of the world.
