By New York Post. An elderly Spanish woman stunned her family when she showed up at her nursing home — more than a week after they were told she had died of COVID-19.
Rogelia Blanco’s relatives were informed the 85-year-old woman died of the virus on Jan. 13 and that her funeral was the next day, according to the La Voz de Galicia newspaper. They were unable to attend due to protocols in place during the pandemic.
But on Saturday — 10 days later — she arrived back at the home in Xove, northern Spain. Her husband, who also lives there, was in a state of shock. . .
The confusion happened when Blanco and other residents who tested positive for COVID-19 were transferred to another home, the Os Gozos residency in Pereiro de Aguiar, about 139 miles away, for specialized treatment late last month.

This State May Have Its Own Highly Contagious Homegrown COVID-19 Strain
By New York Post. Scientists in California believe there is a homegrown coronavirus strain in the state that could be responsible for the dramatic rise in cases, a report said Sunday.
Two separate research groups have discovered the apparent California strain while looking for the new variant that is believed to have come from the United Kingdom, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The supposed California strain is in the same “family tree” as the UK strain and could be behind the state’s spread over the past few months, the paper said.
One of the labs that discovered the strain, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said it amounted to 24 percent of about 4,500 viral samples gathered throughout California in the last weeks of 2020.
