A healthcare worker from the Medical University of South Carolina administers a coronavirus test earlier this month at a site in a parking lot in Charleston, S.C. U.S. health authorities said Thursday that the first U.S. cases of the variant that emerged from South Africa were detected in the state.

“At this time, we have no evidence that infections by this variant cause more severe disease,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
