(CNN)The White House coronavirus task force again suggested the existence of "more transmissible" strains of Covid-19 and a "much more rapid" spread of the virus in its weekly reports to states, stressing the importance of "aggressive mitigation. "

This acceleration and the epidemiologic data suggest the possibility that some strains of the US COVID-19 virus may have evolved into a more transmissible virus," reports sent to states dated January 10 and obtained by CNN said.

Last week, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shot down an item included in the January 3 task force state reports that suggested there was a homegrown "USA variant" of coronavirus, a misperception that began on a call with governors, an administration official told CNN.

After the holiday season and unstable data reporting, the reports said that the US is now seeing "clear continuation of the pre-holiday high rate of spread as measured by rising test positivity, increased cases, increased hospitalization rates, and rising fatalities. "

Rhode Island is the state with the most new cases per 100,000 population this week, followed by Arizona, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Utah, California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Arkansas and North Carolina in the top 10.

Oklahoma has the highest test positivity rate this week, over 25. 1%, followed by Utah, Nevada, Virginia, Arizona, Idaho, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Texas, all of which have test positivity rates between 20. 1% and 25. 0%.
