Public health managers in Madison say they’ve discovered a new coronavirus variant.
The county’s public health office yesterday said there is only one case of the new virus, but more are likely coming. Doctors say the new strain appears to be more contiguous than the original omicron variant, but they also say anyone who had the omicron may have immunity. Public health managers with the state say the new omicron strain has been found in 40 counties across the globe so far.
