New York on Monday reported its first case of a U.K. variant of the coronavirus that appears to be more contagious and has been reported in more than 30 countries. The news came as Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered a third national lockdown for England amid a surging outbreak driven by the variant.

Here are some significant developments:

  • Several health experts have suggested delaying the second dose of vaccines to inoculate more people sooner.
  • Current coronavirus hospitalizations in the United States hit a new record Monday, jumping to more than 2,700 patients in one day to surpass 128,000.
  • The U.S. vaccine rollout is off to a rough start, with crashing reservation websites and elderly people camping out overnight to wait in line.
  • More than 1 million Americans are still waiting for unemployment aid.
  • It’s been one year since the first rumblings of a virus outbreak in Wuhan, China.
