Houston, Texas

Ethnically diverse region of 7 million

Genomes recovered in the earliest recognized phase (January 2020) and currently

Virus originally introduced into Houston many times independently

Virtually all strains in the second wave have Gly614 (aspartate to Glycine)

Linked to increased transmission and infectivity

Significantly higher virus loads in the nasopharynx on initial diagnosis
