As the world continues to grapple with the novel coronavirus, the virus continues to mutate. Mu, the newest of several SARS-CoV2 variants, has now been identified in Nebraska. Nebraska marks the final state in the United States to record a case of the variant. To date, the variant is now in every state in the country.

While much is still unknown about the mutation, including its potential resistance to existing vaccines, it is being monitored. The mutation is currently considered a “variant of interest” (VOI) by the World Health Organization (WHO).
