The Lambda variant is reported in South American countries of: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Ecuador. There are a reported 680 cases of the Lambda virus in the states of Nevada and Utah. The B.1.621 is a fairly new variant that has yet been officially been identified by the WHO (World Health Organization), therefore has yet been given an official name. Throughout the United States, the Delta variant continues to remain the dominant variant.
