We’re already up to Mu, so what happens when we use up the Greek Alphabet? Can we name them the way we label Hurricanes? Variant Nancy, Kamala, or Joe? How about a Fauci, or the Pfizer variant, because the latest incarnation could care less about your fascist vaxx mandates.
Another report, this one from Japan, has some exciting news for the Bidenistas and their poo-flinging vaccine-mandate monkeys.
Here, we demonstrate that the Mu variant is highly resistant to sera from COVID-19 convalescents and BNT162b2-vaccinated individuals. Direct comparison of different SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins revealed that Mu spike is more resistant to serum-mediated neutralization than all other currently 26 recognized variants of interest (VOI) and concern (VOC). This includes the Beta variant (B.1.351) that has been suggested to represent the most resistant variant to convalescent and vaccinated sera to date (e.g., Collier et al, Nature, 2021; Wang et al, Nature, 2021).
The research, titled, “Ineffective neutralization of the SARS-CoV-2 Mu variant by convalescent and vaccine sera,” with a goal “to better assess the risk posed by the Mu variant for vaccinated, previously infected and naïve populations.”
The result of the research is that “we demonstrate that the Mu variant is highly resistant to sera from COVID-19 convalescents and BNT162b2-vaccinated individuals.”
It does not look like boosters will save you either.
If you are a healthy human being 65 or younger, you must face an unpleasant truth. You still only have a 99.997% chance of surviving an encounter with COVID.
If you are not healthy your odds are a bit slimmer. Possible as low as 98%.
Those who are ill and over 70 have a much more dire situation. But if you are relatively healthy and in that age group, your survival rate is close to 90%.
I’m handling it pretty well (/snark). The Left won’t. Aside from the next wave of taxpayer money laundering to cover the cost of tests and shots and whatever else we don’t need or will not work, a new significant dose of tyranny will be required. TO suppress freedom.
It won’t do a damn thing about any flu but then, that flu was never the object of the “treatment,” was it. Or do you still think this is about public health?
