The CDC is reporting they have identified nearly 4,900 cases of the Coronavirus variant in the US.

The vast majority of cases, around 4,700 cases are of the UK variant, known as B117.

That variant which is more contagious than the most common strain of COVID-19 in the US, has been found in 48 states.

Twenty-four states have reported cases of the South African variant, but there have only been 143 confirmed cases in patient to date.

Brazil's P1 variant has been identified in ten states with a total of just 25 cases so far.

The CDC admits the numbers do not represent the total number of cases in the US just those found by analyzing positive samples.
