(ANSA) – ANCONA, MAR 24 – The first two cases of the New York
variant of COVID-19 have been found in the central Marche
region, officials said Wednesday.
    An Ancona hospital virology lab has identified a strain first
found in New York in November, named “B.1.526”, which then
gradually spread across the USA.
    It was found on two swabs from Pesaro Urbino.
    Lab chief Stefano Menzo said: “at the moment there is no
scientific evidence on the possible capacity of this variant to
evade the neutralising response provoked by current vaccines”.
