Ohio-based scientists have just discovered two new variants of the COVID-19 coronavirus, according to an initial report from Gizmodo.

A team of scientists from Ohio State University discovered the new mutations — which like others makes the virus more infectious. This means the variants can spread more rapidly through a given population, creating a worrying potential for an acceleration in the numbers of new infections in the U.S. — where healthcare networks are still grossly overburdened from the global pandemic.

This is developing news about new coronavirus variants identified in the U.S., so be sure to check-in here for more updates, shortly.
