WaPo - UK virus

Several top infectious-disease experts said Monday the variant may not have originated in the United Kingdom. Instead, it may have been identified there first because the United Kingdom has a robust monitoring system that has examined tens of thousands of genomic sequences of virus samples.

The United States has lagged in sequencing and does not have nearly the same level of virus surveillance.

“It may very well be here. It may have even started here. The sequencing in the U.S. is so sporadic,” said Jeremy Luban, a virologist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School



Wow. That’s quite a statement about the country that won the race to the moon.
