Public Health England said it's designated a new coronavirus variant under investigation. The health authority said it's found two cases in the South East of England in individuals who had recently travelled to Antigua. Contact tracing teams have completed thorough investigations to identify and follow up any close contacts and no additional cases have been found to date, it said. A separate variant of concern, called P.1, has been found in 10 people, all of which have links to travel or to a previously confirmed case that has travelled to Brazil.
