It’s Happening. Lockdowns are indefinite. Vaccines are irrelevant.
This could go on for decades. UBI will be necessary.
A new strain of coronavirus is “out of control” in parts of southern England, the U.K. health secretary has warned, adding that it has also been found as far away as Australia.
Matt Hancock, was speaking the day after a stricter lockdown was announced for London and surrounding areas after scientists confirmed the existence of a new variant of the virus that could be up to 70 percent more transmissible.
Speaking on Sunday morning political shows, Hancock said that people needed to act as though they have the virus in order to stop it spreading.
“Unfortunately this virus, the new strain, was out of control, we’ve got to get it
under control and the way we can do that, the only way you can do that is by restricting social contact and essentially—especially in tier 4 areas—everybody needs to behave as though they might well have the virus,” he told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday.
Multiple counties banning flights from United Kingdom as New mutated Covid strain is “out of control”. “Spreads 70% faster”
Austria, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands all moved to stop travel from the UK on Sunday, with similar plans reportedly being considered by France and Germany.
The moves came as millions of people in London and the south-east began their first full day of a new lockdown and the UK health secretary, Matt Hancock, said the newly identified strain of the virus was “out of control”.
The early conclusion, according to British scientists, is that the virus has mutated to change the so-called spike protein on the surface of the virus, increasing the protein’s ability to cling onto and enter human cells. These changes allow the mutation, known as N501Y, to spread 70% faster than earlier versions of the virus, early analysis suggests.
