Researchers in Ohio say they’ve discovered two new variants of the coronavirus local to the U.S. that may be of concern. One variant appears to contain a mutation found in other troubling variants, while the other has started to spread fast in Columbus, Ohio over the last month and carries its own unique mix of mutations. The scientists believe that the Columbus variant is likely more contagious than past existing strains, though they caution little is still known about it.Researchers in Ohio say they’ve discovered two new variants of the coronavirus local to the U.S. that may be of concern.

OSU researchers discover 2 new strains of coronavirus, one dominant in Columbus

The new variant carries a mutation that is identical to the U.K. strain, but researchers from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center think it branched off from a virus strain already present in this country. The new variant was discovered in one Ohio patient, so researchers do not yet know the prevalence of the strain in the population. Wexner has been studying coronavirus in COVID-19 patients since March in order to monitor the evolution of the virus.
