But does the new variant add up to more than a hill of beans?
Episode #113, in which The Slog deconstructs the fake news coffee-grinder of doom emitted by the media on a daily basis.
The “role” of the Brazilian variant in whatever plan lies behind Covysteria is fairly easy to determine: it seems at first sight to make herd immunity a hopeless goal, because Sars Cov2 is mutating quite rapidly….”experts say that the existing vaccines may well be ineffective against the new strain”.
First of all, we need to eschew the route of following science (as defined by the re-writers of it) and instead return to the sanity of Truth. Covid19 is behaving like any other seasonal virus: rebuffed by natural or “vaccinated” resistance, it changes its modus operandum. This is the very reason I never take the annual flu vaccine, because it almosts always fails to work on this year’s virus. Nobody has ever thoroughly investigated this flaw in Pharma vaccine marketing, but it is real enough.
Second, viruses adapt their form of attack to suit the resistance, climate and culture they find. Even if the new 501Y.V3 nasty has a high death rate in Brazil, that does not mean it will have the same rate in, say, the UK or the US. Early on in this tragicomedy of errors (March 2020) I predicted that the Chinese death rate would not be repeated in most of the First World, and this has proved to be true. Despite all the alarmist raw numbers and case v death sleight of hand used by medical bureaucrats and Leftist bedwetters, the bottom line so far is that SarsCov2 has largely replaced flu, not added to the global cull of the elderly.
