Health officials in Colorado are investigating what they believe is a second case of the new coronavirus mutation in the state.
The case is not yet confirmed but “highly suspicious”. Just like the first, it involves a National Guard member who was deployed to a nursing home in Simla, CO.
The mutation, which is believed to be more contagious, was first identified in the UK earlier this month and has also shown up in a COVID-19 patient in California. Experts believe the coronavirus vaccines will work on this new version as well.
