Wisconsin health officials said they identified a case of the U.K. coronavirus variant through ongoing surveillance and whole-genome sequencing, but did not release information pertaining to the patient who tested positive.

It marks the first such case in the state. "We already know that COVID-19 is easily transmitted through respiratory droplets, and with this new variant appearing to be even more infectious, taking preventative measures like wearing a mask and physically distancing are even more important," Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm, said in a news release on Wednesday.
