WASHINGTON, DC (BocaNewsNow.com) The Centers for Disease Control now confirms at least 92 cases of the “COVID-19 Variant” in Florida. Only one other other state has as many “variant” cases — California.

To use the CDC’s exact language, “The cases identified above are based on a sampling of SARS-CoV-2-positive specimens and do not represent the total number of B.1.1.7 lineage cases that may be circulating in the United States and may not match numbers reported by states, territories, tribes, and local officials.”

The CDC updates these numbers three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

While Florida and California teeter on 100, many states have none. New York reports 22, Michigan 17, Georgia 14, Colorado 9, Illinois 9, Connecticut 8.

We note the “variant” numbers are not being provided by the State of Florida. There is no specific breakdown of which of the many variants being publicized are specifically documented in the state.
