U.K. Narrows Search for Missing Person With Brazil Virus Variant

The search for an unidentified person in the U.K. who tested positive for a Brazilian coronavirus variant has narrowed to 379 households in the south of England as the government tries to stop its further spread.

“We’ve identified the batch of home tests in question,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Tuesday in the House of Commons. “We have no information to suggest the variant has spread further.”
