(Undated) — There’s concern growing over new variants of the coronavirus. The CDC has found evidence of a more contagious strain first detected in the UK in 28 states. And in Minnesota, another variant detected in a traveller from Brazil. These variants seem to be more contagious than the version that has already been causing massive numbers of infections across the country. The government is now in a race against time to get vaccines distributed as the death toll is projected to surpass 500-thousand next month.
