Scientists in a paper published Wednesday identified a new strain of the virus, which accounted for 99.9 percent of cases during the second wave in the Houston, Texas, area, the Washington Post reported.
The paper, which has not been peer-reviewed, said people with the strain, known as the D614G mutation, had higher loads of virus — suggesting it is more contagious.

Attorney For Family Of Carole Baskin’s Missing Husband Says ‘DWTS’ Ad Produced ‘Legitimate Tips’
They’ve gotten legitimate tips,” Phillips tells USA Today. “Some of them are (just) ‘I watched Tiger King, and I think Carole Baskin did it’ – kind of wasteful. But then there’s some pretty specific tips and locations mentioned that we’re gonna check out.”
Phillips added, “Some locations that we need to check out have been revealed. Some people we need to check out have been revealed. We’re gonna take some statements and see where it leads.
“The problem with this case over the last 23 years is not enough people have provided information. And now we almost have the opposite problem – that we have too much information.”
NFL’s Chief Medical Officer Kindly Explains Why NFL Coaches Are Getting Fined So Much Cash For Not Wearing Masks
NFL fined three head coaches – – Denver’s Vic Fangio, Seattle’s Pete Carroll and SF’s Kyle Shanahan – $100,000 each for not wearing masks Sunday, and each of their teams another $250,000, sources told ESPN.
So that’s $1.05 million dollars in fines for not wearing masks.

“First and foremost, it’s part of our agreed upon protocol between the league and the NFL Players Association,” Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL’s chief medical officer, said, via Judy Battista of NFL Media. “So it’s not optional for people to follow that protocol, right? All of the parts of that protocol are mandatory. But getting to the philosophy behind it, we’ve said consistently testing is not what keeps us safe. Tests are important, but no test is perfect. We do have those false positives and false negatives, so it is possible that you could have a negative test result and still be infected. In those cases, the face coverings are very important. So we think it’s just another step that’s important in risk-mitigation. I’ll also say that some of the public health authorities have mandated that sideline personnel wear face coverings in their stadiums in their locations. So for all those reasons, it’s not something that’s optional for us.”
