COVID-19: New virus variant hits the US as Biden feel fully

The new variant of the coronavirus was first spotted in the United States and Latin America on Tuesday when President-elect Joe Biden promised to drastically step up the vaccination campaign. The new strain, which first appeared in the UK, brought the UK to a new daily high for infection and prompted South Africa to take a series of new measures as world revelers feared night owls would worsen the peak of infections. The EU health agency has warned that the strain is at high risk of hospitalizations and death – not because infections are more serious, but because it is easier to spread. The Rocky Mountain state of Colorado has recorded what is believed to be the first case in the United States to have the highest death toll from the year-long pandemic that left more than 1.78 million dead in the world. Nearly 338,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States. Governor Jared Polis said a man in his twenties near Denver was infected with the variant known as B.1.1.7 and was self-isolating.
