I’m sure if the media says there’s a new threat, there’s a new threat.
After all, the media is there to inform us and would never exploit a situation for the purpose of forcing a New World Order on the unsuspecting goyim.
The doom virus has mutated, goy.
A mutated virus sounds instinctively scary, but to mutate and change is what viruses do.
Most of the time it is either a meaningless tweak or the virus alters itself in such a way that it gets worse at infecting us and the new variant just dies out.
Occasionally it hits on a new winning formula.
There is no clear-cut evidence the new variant of coronavirus – which has been detected in south-east England – is able to transmit more easily, cause more serious symptoms or render the vaccine useless.
However, there are two reasons scientists are keeping a close eye on it.
The first is that levels of the variant are higher in places where cases are higher.
It is a warning sign, although it can be interpreted in two ways.
The virus could have mutated to spread more easily and is causing more infections.
But variants can also get a lucky break by infecting the right people at the right time. One explanation for the spread of the “Spanish strain” over the summer was simply people catching it on holiday and then bringing it home.
It will take experiments in the laboratory to figure out if this variant really is a better spreader than all the others.
The other issue that is raising scientific eyebrows is how the virus has mutated.
“It has a surprisingly large number of mutations, more than we would expect, and a few look interesting,” Prof Nick Loman from the COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) Consortium told me.
There are two notable sets of mutation – and I apologise for their hideous names.
Both are found in the crucial spike protein, which is the key the virus uses to unlock the doorway into our body’s cells in order to hijack them.
The mutation N501 (I did warn you) alters the most important part of the spike, known as the “receptor-binding domain”.
This is where the spike makes first contact with the surface of our body’s cells. Any changes that make it easier for the virus to get inside are likely to give it an edge.
“It looks and smells like an important adaptation,” said Prof Loman.
The other mutation – a H69/V70 deletion – has emerged several times before, including famously in infected mink.
The concern was that antibodies from the blood of survivors was less effective at attacking that variant of virus.
Again, it is going to take more laboratory studies to really understand what is going on.
This is why you have to take the vaccine, goy.
We’re shutting you down.
The U.K.’s capital city is about to move into the country’s highest level of coronavirus restrictions as cases continue to surge ahead of the holiday period.
On Monday, the government announced that London, a city of around 9 million, and its surrounding areas would move into the “very high” alert level of Tier 3.
Announcing the move in Parliament, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that a new variant of the virus had been identified that “may be associated” with the faster spread of infection in the southeast of England.
From Wednesday, pubs, cafes and restaurants must close unless they offer takeout or delivery service, and entertainment venues and indoor entertainment venues including theaters and cinemas must shut.
London is moving into Tier 3 due to a surge in cases in the capital and its surrounding areas. Some boroughs in the capital have seen the number of cases rise by over 40% in the week up to Dec. 9, and parts of nearby Essex have seen the number of infections surge by up to 78%.
“The London weekly case rate at 225 per 100,000 people is already the highest regional rate in the country,” the government said in a statement Monday.
Looks like Christmas is canceled then.
No family for you, goy.
But you don’t need a family anyway. What you need is safety from this deadly virus. If you become infected with this virus, and you are also over the age of 65, you have upwards of a 0.05% chance of dying from it.
Your family cannot protect you.
Jesus cannot protect you.
Only the one true government of democracy can protect you.
