Health officials express concern for spread of COVID-19 variant in Carver County

[Fox 9 News, March 09, 2021] Carver County is currently a hotspot for the COVID-19 variant seen in both England and South Africa known as B117.

Some doctors are concerned with these cases because the variant is spreading faster, and there’s some evidence that it could be dangerous.

"It’s for sure more transmissible, and it looks like it causes more severe hospitalization rates," said Dr. Frank Rhame, who specializes in infectious disease at Allina Health.
