Coronavirus crisis manager Prof. Nachman Ash spoke this afternoon about a new variant of COVID-19 that is common in Uganda in East Africa. In a press briefing, Ash said that "the presence of the British variant is estimated at roughly ninety percent of the new cases daily. It is more contagious, especially in young children."
