North Carolina health officials confirm the new strain of COVID-19 has been detected in the state — specifically, in Mecklenburg County.

“I’m not surprised we’ve been saying for awhile that we suspect that it is here, it was really just a matter of time till we had it detected in North Carolina,” NCDHHS Epidemiologist, Zack Moore said.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services said the first identified case was confirmed by Mako Medical Laboratories in an adult in Mecklenburg County. To protect the privacy of the individual, no further information will be released.
