The discovery of the South African Corona strain in the US state of Maryland



Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that the state had confirmed a case of infection with a variant of the Corona virus that was initially discovered in South Africa, and alternative B.1.351 was applied to it, and he called on citizens to limit transmission of infection by wearing masks, avoiding gatherings and washing hands. According to what was published by Fox News America.


The governor's office said the case was confirmed in an unnamed adult from Baltimore with no overseas travel history, indicating that the alternative is likely to spread in American society.


On the other hand, Maryland appears to be gradually declining from a turbulent winter in terms of case numbers, when daily infections exceeded 3,700 on December 4 and again on January 8 and January 9, according to state data. The state recorded fewer than 2,000 daily cases on January 31 and February 1, and the statewide rate of positivity was 5.61%, with a total of approximately 355,600 confirmed cases and nearly 7,000 deaths associated with the new virus.


It is worth noting that the Corona virus strain that was initially discovered in South Africa is not the only mutant strain that is likely to spread within Maryland, the governor's office announced two confirmed cases of a highly transmissible British strain on January 12, and this number has since increased. Now to at least eight cases, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
