New York state has found its first case of the U.K. variant of coronavirus, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

A man in his 60s who lives in Saratoga County in upstate New York tested positive for the B117 variant, Cuomo said. The man had not traveled recently, which suggests it was the result of community spread, Cuomo said on a conference call.

The article goes on to state the following:

The state has done about 5,000 tests looking for the new strain, Cuomo said. The new strain is more transmittable, he said, which could be a problem as the state deals with rising hospitalizations.

“An individual from Saratoga County, New York, tested positive for the strain,” Governor Cuomo tweeted. “The individual had no known travel history.”

According to the report, the man is affiliated with a store in Saratoga Springs called N. Fox Jewelers, and there are three other coronavirus cases stemming from the store.

The state has not yet confirmed whether those cases are also B117, and are asking anyone who was at the store between Dec. 18 and Dec. 24 to get tested.

  1. How about testing the test swabs before they are used on a human, are they sterile ? Just humor some of us and do random checks throughout the country

  2. Oh my goodness that’s all they need with their crazy Governor! I feel for these people in New York! Will their lives ever be normal with the Governor they have doubt it! He is on tv everyday! I swear I think he is trying to be a celebrity! The businesses there are suffering bad! He seems to like to order things shut down even churches sad for New York!

  3. Judy I live in Saratoga NY. This guy has ALWAYS been a real piece of shit. 💩💩💩. During this scamdemic this ego maniac thinks he is the second coming of Christ. He needs to get lead cancer.

  4. The test swabs probably come from the same place all the masks come from…CHINA… no doubt they are infected.stick a hand full up the governor’s a$$ and see if he gets it

  5. Cuomo go away..you are a stupid idiot with a control for power. You need to get the worst case of this and then…..world would be a better place

  6. Oh good lord! IF the man Actually has the UK strain, and IF he truly has not traveled, is it not possible that someone that HAS traveled came into the essential jewelers that he works at. My guess is that it’s more of a scare tactic for the up-coming stricter lock-downs… or to keep New York locked down.
