  • BREAKING: First Case of Brazilian Strain of Coronavirus Detected in US

A North Dakota resident seals a self-administered COVID-19 saliva test sample at a testing site inside the former Thomas Edison Elementary School, as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak continues in Moorhead, Minnesota, U.S., October 25, 2020. With the new lab information showing the case to be the Brazil P.1 variant, MDH epidemiologists are re-interviewing the person to obtain more details about the illness, travel and contacts.

The case was picked up through surveillance, which involves 50 random samples sent on a weekly basis to undergo whole genome sequencing.

The case was detected in the state of Minnesota, Xinhua news agency reported.

Another variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease COVID-19, has also been reported originating from South Africa, B1.351, but infections from the strain have not been reported in the USA as of Monday.

The patient with the Brazil P.1 variant is a resident of the Twin Cities metro area.

Out of the 4,599 Sioux County residents who have tested positive for COVID-19, 4,224 of them have recovered, for a recovery rate of about 92%.

The two new cases were found among Twin Cities residents who recently traveled to California, which holds among the largest number of reported variant cases nationwide. This case had a symptom onset date of January 10.

"These cases illustrate why it is so important to limit travel during a pandemic as much as possible", says State Epidemiologist Dr. Ruth Lynfield.
