Covid variants increase

The U.S. reported 306 new coronavirus variant cases Sunday, a record increase for viruses that can spread more easily, dodge some treatments and immunities, or both.

Nearly all the new cases were in three states: Florida, up 104 cases to 605; Michigan, up 85 cases to 421; and Texas, up 41 cases to 102.

Most cases – new and existing – are of B.1.1.7, a variant first seen in the United Kingdom that the CDC says could become America's predominant version in March.

Over the month of February, known variant cases quintupled from 471 to 2,463 even as total coronavirus cases were dropping from a peak in January.

However, that rapid decline in case counts has halted. On Sunday, for the first time in more than a month, most states reported rising case counts as more cases were recorded in the latest week than a week earlier.
