Coronavirus Strain Found in India Is a ‘Variant of Concern,’ WHO Says

The World Health Organization on Monday classified a coronavirus variant first spotted in India as a global “variant of concern,” saying preliminary studies showed it may be more transmissible than some other variants.

The WHO didn’t report any evidence suggesting that currently authorized vaccines would be less effective against the variant.

The variant, known as B.1.617, is being studied by scientists around the world as they try to figure out its role in the fast growing Covid-19 surge in India, which reported more than 366,000 new daily cases on Monday. The variant has already spread to more than 30 countries, according to the WHO, including the U.S., the U.K., France and Japan.

Countries worldwide hit new records for virus cases, deaths

 

Ambulances filled with breathless patients lined up in Brazil as nations around the world set new records Thursday for COVID-19 deaths and new coronavirus infections. The disease surged even in some countries that have kept the virus in check.

In the United States, Detroit leaders began making a plan to knock on every door to persuade people to get vaccine shots.

Brazil this week became just the second country, after the U.S., to report a 24-hour tally of COVID-19 deaths that exceeded 4,000. India hit a peak of almost 127,000 new cases in 24 hours, and Iran set a new coronavirus infection record for the third straight day, reporting nearly 22,600 new cases.

U.S. wants COVID vaccine patent waiver to benefit world, not boost China biotech

The US administration is examining ways to ensure that a waiver of COVID-19 vaccine patents to aid poor countries will not hand sensitive U.S. biopharmaceutical technology to China and Russia -

India Struggles to Keep Pace With Coronavirus Variants

Covid-19 surge puts pressure on labs that do genomic sequencing needed to track mutations

India’s laboratories are struggling to keep up with a punishing Covid-19 surge, as its scientists try to track and understand new coronavirus mutations.

On Monday, the World Health Organization classified a variant first identified in India, known as B.1.617, as a “variant of concern,” saying preliminary studies suggested it may be more contagious than other variants. The WHO’s scientists didn’t report any evidence that vaccines aren’t effective against the new variant.

Many prominent scientists have long warned that the PCR cycle times of up to 45 used to diagnose “cases” are way too high and lead to a huge number of false positives.  That number of cycle times will pick up viral fragments which pose no health risks to the individual or others.  Well, in a blatant display of hypocrisy (in my opinion of course), the CDC is now using a cycle time of only 28  MAXIMUM when testing for breakthrough cases!  Am I the only one to suspect an agenda here?

Another interesting change which only applies to breakthrough cases:

 

“In the coming weeks, CDC will transition from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only vaccine breakthrough infections that result in hospitalization or death. This shift will help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance.”

Another agenda at work here?

Concerns are now being raised about VAERS

 

The VAERS showed  around 3300 deaths following Covid 19 vaccines up to the 04-30-2021 /  is  it true-false ,  who knows ? 

 

Fauci says there's no doubt we have been undercounting' the number of people who died from COVID-19

Dr. Anthony Fauci, said Sunday that he's not surprised new data shows the COVID-19 death toll has likely been severely undercounted. 

A new study published earlier this week estimates that more than 900,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 -

Blood Expert Says He Found Why Some Covid-19 Vaccines Trigger Rare Clots

A scientist in Germany thinks he has found an answer as researchers around world examine AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson shots

In Germany, one researcher thinks he has found what is triggering the clots. Andreas Greinacher, a blood expert, and his team at the University of Greifswald believe so-called viral vector vaccines—which use modified harmless cold viruses, known as adenoviruses, to convey genetic material into vaccine recipients to fight the coronavirus—could cause an autoimmune response that leads to blood clots. According to Prof. Greinacher, that reaction could be tied to stray proteins and a preservative he has found in the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Is there a vaccine for excessive paranoia?

Draw your own conclusions.

(asking for a friend)

Your friend sure is inquisitive.

They should have acknowledged that long ago.

I am not going to second guess them on this point and expressed my opinion on why they waited--Imo, they were waiting for everyone to have a chance to get the vaccine before dropping the mask requirement...Now, those who aren't vaccinated are the ones who are at risk and business owners don't need to feel responsible for their customers protection now that the vaccines are readily available.. That's my take.{Edit: Evidently since they aren't mandating a vaccine passport those that don't want the vaccine don't need to lie and cheat to obtain one.}

The number of people vaccinated has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a fully vaccinated person needs to wear a mask or not.

Not to you. Otoh, the CDC is responsible for addressing the national pandemic and developing policy to deal with it as effectively as possible for all Americans.
