Australia's federal health minister Greg Hunt said on Monday that the new strain has been detected in a small number of cases, The Guardian reported. The health ministry in Italy on Sunday said that it detected a patient with the new COVID-19 strain found in Britain. The patient, who is now in isolation, returned from the UK in the past few days.
