Capitol Fax: First case of more contagious COVID-19 strain identified in Chicago

 I mentioned that there was a new strain of coronavirus emerging in England and has been found here in the states. And it's been identified in the city.

As stated since the public learned of this new mutated strain of coronavirus it's more contagious, however, nothing has shown it's more deadly. Also the vaccines that has been developed is expected to be able to cover this new strain.

Also noted today is that in some parts of the state mitigation efforts will be eased, however, that won't include Cook County or Chicago for now at least. [VIDEO]
