The first case of the P.1 coronavirus variant, originally discovered in Brazil, has been detected on Cape Cod.
The Department of Public Health says the variant was detected in a woman in her 30’s from Barnstable County and that she tested positive in late February.
Deputy Director of the Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment, Erika Woods says there is still a lot to learn about this variant.
County health officials say the variant is not a cause for an increased concern here on Cape Cod.
