At least 85 people linked to a care home in Surhuisterveen, Friesland have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Two of them, both residents of the facility, were found to be carrying the B117 mutation of the virus, a highly contagious variant thought to be one of the causes of a surge in infections in the United Kingdom at the end of last year.
