As North Carolina’s vaccination numbers rise and its daily COVID-19 cases fall, another pandemic factor is making moves.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are three coronavirus variants of concern, and one is still on track to gain dominance as soon as the end of the month.

B.1.1.7, also known as the U.K. variant, is the more common of the two emerging variants detected in North Carolina. The CDC’s variant tracker shows laboratories have confirmed at least 40 cases of the U.K. variant in the Tar Heel State, with three cases of the South African variant detected, and none of the Brazil variant.
