    The lambda variant of the novel coronavirus, first identified in Peru,
    has been found in Japan for the first time, health ministry officials
    said Friday.

    The variant was detected in a woman in her 30s at Haneda Airport who
    arrived from Peru on July 20, according to the ministry.

    She tested positive for the coronavirus in a quarantine check at the
    airport, with no symptoms.

    The virus was confirmed to be of the lambda variant in an analysis by
    the National Institute of Infectious Diseases.
