California has reported the highest number of mu variant cases with a total of 384. 167 of those were found in Los Angeles County.
The identification of variants like mu… highlights the need for L.A. County residents to continue to take measures to protect themselves and others, Dr. Barbara Ferrer, director of LA County Public Health.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that the delta variant still accounts for 99% of cases in the US.
He also said that the mu variant is “not an immediate threat”
