July 16 (UPI) -- Up to 75% of the coronavirus strains circulating in New York City in early March shared genetic similarities with those seen in Europe and other areas of North America, according to an analysis published Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The findings are significant, given that they are based on samples of the new coronvirus, SARS-CoV-2, collected from patients at five hospitals in the city selected intentionally because "of their high use" by people who are "self-identified Chinese speakers," the agency researchers said.


COVID-19 is the disease caused by infection with the new coronavirus.

Samples tested in the study were gathered in early March at the start of the outbreak in New York, researchers said, and the hospitals were chosen "because of concern that SARS-CoV-2 could be introduced by travelers returning from China, where the outbreak originated."
