Study: U.K. coronavirus variant doubling every 10 days in the U.S.

Recommended Posts

 

The coronavirus variant first identified the U.K. is doubling every 10 days in the U.S., according to a new study. 

The report — not yet peer-reviewed — found the new strain called B.1.1.7. is 35%-45% more transmissible than other strains of the virus currently in the country.

Dr. Greg Poland, professor of medicine and infectious diseases at Mayo Clinic and director of Mayo's Vaccine Research Group, said the model appears to be appropriate and duplicates what we saw in the U.K. with this variant. 

Dr. Poland worries about COVID-19 fatigue. As people get tired of wearing masks and social distancing, variants could likely cause another spike. 

 

While there is not good evidence to suggest that this strain causes more severe disease in people, Dr. Poland suspects it does. 

"The best guess... is that the lethality rate is increased, number one, and number two that the viral loads in these individuals may be higher. Both of those would be markers of more severe disease," Dr. Poland said. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's modeling predicts the B.1.1.7. variant could be the predominant strain in the U.S. by March. 

 

"This virus is going to find people who are not vaccinated, who don't wear masks and who don't maintain social distancing," he said. "I think we're going to see just what they saw in the U.K. Now the question is, will it be outcompeted, for example, by the South African variant or the Brazilian variant or a variant that has yet to arise? This virus doesn't stay the same. It just keeps mutating," Dr. Poland said. 

Monday during a press conference, Dr. Anthony Fauci said the vaccines the U.S. are currently distributing are quite effective against this particular variant. 

But depending on the vaccine and variant, studies show the effectiveness can drop. 

Dr. Poland referred to the Novavax study that was 95% effective against the original strain. For the U.K strain, it dropped to 85% effective. For the strain first identified in South Africa, it dropped to 60% for those HIV-negative. 

While these vaccines may still protect people against severe disease and death, Dr. Poland said those with mild or moderate symptoms can end up with long-term complications. 

South Africa just announced it's suspending use of AstraZeneca's vaccine after a small clinical trial revealed the shot provided minimal protection against mild to moderate infections of the variant now widespread in the country.

And one of those vaccines has proven to not work against the S. African strain that's also in the US now

so an investment thread is allowed to stay in the main forum indefinitely, but a vital piece of new information regarding a pandemic that will permanently hurt and kill millions doesnt?

i put it there on purpose, the first time ive done this with any thread since at least august. its not a politics topic, its a public health announcement

this information needs to be in front of people because of the threat of covid fatigue is making them careless - and careless in this case will cause massive spikes of far more dangerous mutations that will continue to crop up for months if not years

this should remain in the main forum for at least a week so that people become informed and are encouraged to remain vigilant in following the proper safety protocols

do i need to explain any further? criminy

i think it was this article that said the experts believe the UK variant will be the dominant one in the US by March. MARCH!!!

whatever one is the most infectious will always become the dominant one. and the more infectious ones so far have been the most deadly and permanent damage causing

i just dont understand why so many people can be so blazay about this. it was always going to be a long haul fight. incessantly pushing to reopen is pure foolishness, as is the absolutely retarded push by trumpsters that this is some kind of scam. well don is gone and the virus keeps mutating like crazy. now is the time to forget tf about normalcy. we need to be smart, hunker down, mortgage the financial future if necessary, and follow the guidance of our scientific experts

idk whytf we arent producing masks that protect against INCOMING viruses in large quantities and pushing people to use them. we could make masks that are reuseable and have a higher protection percentage than the 2-5% that double regular cloth masks provide. yeah, it would cost money, but it would seriously slow the spread and save health/lives

we know trump fucked it from the beginning, but now that hes gone theres no reason why we shouldnt be pulling out all the stops to protect against this wildly mutating and increasingly dangerous virus

Yeah, the AstraZeneca, which is the one recommended for my condition. So im just going to wait a few months and be super careful and see if one emerges that covers whichever strain becomes dominant

Thanks for info meat. Information is key to making sound decisions.

 It will now bring all the "i dont believe the science people" who say this is all made up. Unless the science says something they believe in already it is all lies in their eyes. This virus seems to be mutating similar to Flu. As researchers predicted.

the cycle will start all over again with the denialists sadly.

Lol at vital information. Fucking mindless propaganda. There's no fucking variant other than Normal cold crap.

You're a piece of shit. A guy in our Columbus office is in the hospital, on a Ventilator with a trach tube, fighting for his life... that's not a cold, you fucking prick.

I can’t believe you can talk like that to our esteemed resident virologist, TWD (real name, Harry Azcrac). 
 

he’s been very consistent with his beliefs, so they must be true.

Sorry about your friend but you are missing the entire point. Govt doesn't give a fuck about you.

You can't say I'm wrong just because you know one guy in a hospital. 

Stop taking it personal and thinking with emotion. You're doing exactly what govt wants. Picking a side and hating the wrong people. 

Your point is what? How old is he? What else did he have? You're not asking real questions about what's happening.

He's a victim of war by your own govt . This has nothing to do with a virus. Govt isn't trying to help you or protect you from anything. 

Lol at not feeling empathy. I do but it's because the public is so stupid they are letting govt lead them by a leash. 

Were people not dying of respiratory illness before this? 

Are the 500,000 a legitimate number? No, it's not. It's straight up known they label things cv that aren't.. flu going down 85% ,is obviously a lie.

Masks are not science. The vaccine isn't even a vaccine. It's untested mrna bullshit.

Maybe your friend wore a mask too much and that effects the lungs badly. Trying to avoid germs, then makes you weaker to more germs.

Lol at beliefs. It's straight fact that there's nothing that's worth being shut down and idiots wearing masks. Govt is making a fool of us all. 

Virologist? If you're supporting masks and distancing bullshit after a year, you don't know shit about virology either
