TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The COVID-19 Lambda variant could make an already bad situation even worse in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health is reporting more than two dozen cases of the new variant since it first showed up in the state in July.
It's already become the dominant strain in several South American countries.
A recent study found it may be resistant to the current vaccines and far more contagious than the Delta variant.
