January 30, 2021: South African Covid-19 Variant Found In Baltimore Area

Governor Larry Hogan announced on Saturday that the South African variant of the Covid-19 virus has been detected in the State of Maryland.

The new B.1.351 variant of the SARS-CoV-2 was found in a Maryland resident and has been confirmed by the Maryland Department of Health in consultation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The B.1.351 variant has not been shown to cause more severe illness or an increased risk of death when compared to the other strains, however it is believed to be more transmissible than other strains.

Officials say additional research is still required to determine the effectiveness of the available vaccines against the South African variant but initial evidence suggests that vaccines are still likely to be protective against the variant.

Today’s case involves an adult living in the Baltimore metro region who has not traveled internationally, making community transmission likely. The individual is currently isolating at home, health officials said.

Contract tracing efforts are being taken to ensure anyone who was in contact with this person is quickly identified, quarantined and tested.
