Mutating Corona Virus


Recommended Posts

Well one part of the narrative above that graphic is true - people are sick of COVID and being told what to do.  Two doors down from me last weekend, mother and six year old child both confirmed +ve on the Thursday.  Birthday party for eight year old daughter went ahead on Saturday in the home and I'm not aware of anyone refusing to attend nor of anyone even commenting on it happening.  That I know means it is common knowledge as I have no special access to such information.  I wouldn't go near but I do understand (to an extent) the argument that says they're all mixing at school anyway so what's the difference.

another week, another VIPals scadal - this time again the populist pal Immensa (profits at taxpayer expense)

 

* staff were asked to wear bin liners instead of lab coats risking cross contamination

* poorly equipped machines returned inconclusive sample result and spoiled samples

 * New recruits not given formal training

* Covid sample waste was not disposed of correctly

 

"Although the site processes private fit-to-travel tests, it has also handled thousands of NHS Covid samples, The Independent understands. These appear to have been diverted from Immensa’s Wolverhampton lab, which – unlike Loughborough – is contracted by the government to process samples for the national testing system"

A smart government would put those countries who are affected on the red list pronto.

Yes - it was extra info in reply to SD

and as Sandy has linked - they have

 

 

See here for breaking:

(sheesh - thats big tweets - I din't do it)

Strain is already in Hong Kong - so undoubtedly also already in New York (hense also London) + Melbourne ...  and spreading

 

... especially with testing labs like Immensas ?

Its just the sheer size of them and how many

 

You used to get an option for small/medium/large display size for link/videos didnt you?

Dont seem to get that anymore, and not sure why it included so many tweets, rather than the simple first one as it seemed to do before

 

Some numpty been fiddling with the site code again?

 

Gonna embed entire linked newsheets next rather than just HL?

One of the UK's leading health officials has said the variant is the most worrying we've seen so far.

As do i, with perhaps a slightly other perspective with a more correct (IMO) allocation of blame:

They are all mixing at school without any mitigations in place and there nothing the parents can realistically do about the governments directives on that,

- so they are probably already infected and already bought it back into the home

Yep A number of changes in this that seem likely to assist its spread and bypassing vaccination/existing immune responses

 

Two bits of more positive news though:

1. Existing pcr/lft tests should still detect it OK ... unless the test is incompetently processed by immensa or similar Johnson VIPals of course

2. Crucially  - that a mask is still effective whether vaccines are or not ...

Interesting that with the European positive results, those infected appear to have been quickly isolated from other passengers, and all given further tests at the airport(s)

 

In the UK the infected are in Nottingham and Chelmsford ... Presumably having traveled there after arriving?

 

Johnson and Patel really not doing a good job protecting the borders are they?

I think we'll quickly find out its already all over country sandy, especially around the capital, major cities and Universities. Not yet sure if Nottingham is because of a returnee from EM airport or traveled from the capital,

but whichever is the case, it seems it left the/whichever airport - which is a damning condemnation of the Uk's processes IMO - which needs speedy and effective correction (fat chance)

 

Despite the changes, it seems most likely that the new variant wont cause significantly greater issues with the vaccinated other than a likely increase in spread (maybe from 10% to 15-20%), although that does need to be confirmed. Masks will still be a significant protection.

I wouldn't want to be one of the unvaccinated+unmasked though. My booster is next week.

 

(especially given the cold strains out ther at the moment + the bird flu outbreaks)

Scientists have so far detected 22 cases of the B1.1.529 variant in Gauteng Province, the country’s economic hub.

Botswana’s health ministry confirmed that four cases of the variant had been detected in people who were all fully vaccinated. All four were tested before planned travel. One sample was also detected in Hong Kong, carried by a traveler from South Africa, South African scientists said.

- NYT

 

 

Gauteng is a densely populated area of SA, associated with Gold (and the immune damage the mining methods cause), poverty and HIV

 

 

Israel has also trapped a number of cases at entry to the country and is isolating the people
