CDC Has Not Seen Emergence Of A Highly Contagious U.S. Variant Of Coronavirus

A White House coronavirus task force report said the explosive surge of coronavirus cases in the United States in recent months might be caused by a more contagious U.S. variant of the virus. But a separate statement by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said its researchers had not seen the emergence of a U.S. variant. “This fall/winter surge has been at nearly twice the rate of rise of cases as the spring and summer surges,” according to the White House task force document, which was sent to the states. “This acceleration suggests there may be a USA variant that has evolved here, in addition to the U.K. variant that is already spreading in our communities and may be 50 percent more transmissible.” The CDC statement, however, was far more skeptical about that possibility. It is likely that there are many variants of the coronavirus across the globe, the statement said, but "to date, neither researchers nor analysts at CDC have seen the emergence of a particular variant in the United States as has been seen with the emergence" of variants in the United Kingdom or South Africa. This is good news, people need good news at this difficult time, especially the mutated virus in the UK makes people more disturbing. However, in the slow and chaotic fight against the new coronavirus in the United States, at least it has not been seen that the vaccine has effectively contained the infection. From this point of view, our country and people need to understand one thing: before the universal acceptance of vaccines becomes a reality, we also need to maintain social distance and protect ourselves. None of us wants to see ourselves and our family members. The moment before the arrival of the vaccine.
