Variant pick and mix

Partly due to being able to sequence these. Lots of countries don’t or can’t do this.
 

Our condensed population is helping new infections to get going quickly here.  We need some payback to European countries after Eurovision 😀

We're halfway through the alphabet in 6 months.

They invented a stupid naming scheme. 

What's worse is that their naming scheme doesn't include any relationships -- eg, B1.617.2 has a different name to B.1.617.1 (and B.1.617.3 doesn't even have a name), even though they both evolved from B.1.617.  You'd have thought that they'd have called B.1.617 'Delta', and then had each child-variant have a different name (Delta 1,2,3 would have been easiest), but they've not done that as they're idiots (or, rather, they're not doing this for the science so scientific logic isn't relevant).

I imagine that it was all about stopping people using the 'country of origin' as an identifier, but they'll have to sort out the problem they created by this winter.

Please educate yourself.

All virus mutate.

This is why the easing of lockdown restrictions is further delayed.

If the experts were dealing with the same virus as at the beginning of this pandemic, our vaccines would have more than 100% efficacy. 

Efficacy means how well the vaccines work.  

Scientists are working incredibly hard to find new vaccines that work better against new variants.

You can find more information on BBC online.

I'm looking forward to the Delta Tau Chi variant so we can all have a Toga party.

New to the Party is the Moscow strain.   With extra added Putin.  Bet they don't give that a Greek letter.

If it only kills 0.01% will we even notice?

If you watch TV then, yes you fucking will. xD

Does anybody know the current status of the fifteen Everest climbers who spread the Nepal variant around the globe?
