According to an exclusive report from New Scientists, the two strains were the one that was first detected in the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7), and the variant that originated in California (B.1.429). New Scientist reports that these "hybrid version of the virus" may be responsible for the wave of cases that swept Los Angeles, as the virus contains mutations that are resistant to some antibodies.

Bette Korber from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico told New York Academy of Sciences at the beginning of the month that she had seen what she describes has "pretty clear" evidence of a "mutated hybrid version" in her database of US viral genomes. If this news is officially confirmed, this will mark a potential turning point in the pandemic. For more information on this story, visit this link here.
