There's ****ing hundreds of variants out there. To cause this much chaos with no proof that it is more deadly or spreads faster than other ones is tantamount to a terrorist act by this tulio fella. **** him and the duck he rolls with.

The fact that he used it to gain a platform to bleat about some irrelevant and false econimic narrative simply compounds his arsehattery in my opinion.

We do know that it spreads super fast given that it has become the dominant variant detected in tests in a very short space of time. Much faster than the previous variants took hold. As to how deadly is, we don't know yet.

If the data about this new variant is off and this is a false alarm then we'll know very soon too.

hopefully it is as predicted or said about the virus in the beginning, that the coronavirus mutates to become more contagious and less virulent.

Already there is evidence that suggests this variant was around as early as the 1st November, that it probably started with on immunocompromised person, had a chance to spread to Egypt and probably ran around the whole country during the election campaigns, carried by people who were vaccinated.

Already evidence that suggests it is a breakthrough infection compromising all 3 vaccines available in SA.
