Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles said that it amounted to 24 percent of about 4,500 viral samples gathered throughout California in the last weeks of 2020. nypost.com/2021/01/25/cal…

Dr. Eric Vail, a pathologist at Cedars Sinai, said the strain could be responsible for doubling the state’s total death toll in the space of less than three months.

“It probably helped to accelerate the number of cases around the holiday season,” nypost.com/2021/01/25/cal…

p.s. Is the US data starting to show any impact from vaccines? I doubt that. Per Israeli data, vaccines take ~2+ weeks to become substantially effective and then there are the usual lags beyond that (e.g. between development of symptoms and test results showing up in the data).
Michael Novakhov retweeted:
So the question is not how many people have been vaccinated now but how many people were vaccinated as of say 3-4 weeks ago. And very few were in the US. In Israel, which got off to a much faster start, you arguably (there are some confounders) are seeing an impact already.
