As we’ve been explaining here, the new strain is the new big thing.
Anthony Fauci told people not to panic, and said not to shut the borders as the rest of the world was shutting its borders. But Donald Trump will be blamed for not shutting the borders.
There wasn’t actually any reason to shut the borders, because this virus isn’t dangerous. But that’s neither here nor there.
The first case of a new and potentially more infectious strain of Covid-19 has been confirmed in the United States, Colorado health officials said Tuesday.
Colorado health officials confirmed the case and notified the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The infected individual is in isolation in Elbert County, about an hour and a half south of Denver. Officials said the man, who is in his 20s, does not have a travel history.
“There is a lot we don’t know about this new Covid-19 variant, but scientists in the United Kingdom are warning the world that it is significantly more contagious. The health and safety of Coloradans is our top priority and we will closely monitor this case, as well as all COVID-19 indicators, very closely,” Colorado Governor Jared Polis said Tuesday.
“We are working to prevent spread and contain the virus at all levels,” Polis said, adding that public health officials were working to identify other potential cases through contact tracing interviews.
Preliminary analysis of the mutated strain, first identified in the U.K., suggests it may be the culprit behind Britain’s recent spike in cases. The new strain, referred to as SARS-CoV-2 VUI 202012/01 in the science community, could be as much as 70% more transmissible, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.
The CDC said in December that the new strain could already be circulating in the U.S. without notice. The CDC cited ongoing travel between the U.K. and the U.S. as an explanation for the potential arrival of the new variant.
Prepare yourself for the ultimate barrage.
It’s a slow burn, because they want you to take the vaccine. It’s also being lined up, obviously, for when Joe Biden is supposed to take office, at which point he is of course going to totally shut everything down completely.
It is all like watching a movie you’ve already seen the script for. They’ve made it very clear in their own statements what they intended to do with this virus agenda, and it does not have anything to do with public health. Allowing it to wrap up with the vaccine injection was definitely not in the cards.
