Dangerous coronavirus variants are sweeping across the nation even as new cases of the original coronavirus are dropping quickly.
The United States reported 1,932 variant cases through Tuesday night, up 49% from a week earlier. The variants appear to spread more easily, dodge some immunities and treatments, or both.
The B.1.351 variant first detected in South Africa was reported over the last week in Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, New York and Tennessee for the first time. On Sunday, South Carolina said it had two cases of that variant; on Tuesday, it reported it had 21 cases.
The variant is a concern because it appears to be more infectious and perhaps less vulnerable to vaccines than the original version of the virus
The United States on Tuesday reported 220 new cases, for a total of 1,881 cases, of the B.1.1.7 variant first seen in the United Kingdom. The Centers for Disease Control says B.1.1.7 is now found in 45 states and territories; B.1.351 in 14; and the P.1 variant first seen in Brazil is found in four.
