Now that Covid-19 vaccines are becoming more available people have started to become care free when it comes to Covid-19. But that might not be very smart, as of recently more potent variants of Covid-19 are popping up. And many professionals and scientist are starting to find out just how bad they are. For example Texas has recently opened up to near normalcy, after that Covid-19 numbers have increased 2% in a very short time. Which just shows how import right now is to truly stop the spread of Covid-19.
Dr. Jay Butler, deputy director for infectious diseases at the C.D.C. , stated that “I want to stress that we are deeply concerned that this strain is more transmissible and can accelerate outbreaks in the U.S. in the coming weeks”. It is never a good sign when higher up of the C.D.C says there worried about a country. Again the main issue will fall back to people that think the vaccine will make you invincible. And another big issue is people the don’t take Covid-19 seriously, they will always lead to spread of the virus. But with new strains going around we cant not afford to take this anyway other than seriously.
Another person Dr. Ashish K. Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, had this to say. “I see the new strain as a threat multiplied. Take everything we know about the risk of this virus and just multiply it substantially.” Which is a very good way of wording it, especially with the long term effects of just normal Covid-19 still being un-known. The new variant, called B.1.1.7, was first identified in Britain, where it rapidly became the primary source of infections, accounting for more than 80 percent of new cases diagnosed in London and at least a quarter of cases elsewhere in the country. Which just shows how dangerous it could be if we let the multiple variants in the USA grow to this potential.
