They really are desperate that we give in and accept their injections aren’t they. Now they’re telling us that they’ve discovered a triple mutant variant and in Yorkshire to boot. I say what I like and I like what I bloody well say.
It’s hard to keep up with the variants. They’ve been terrorising us all week with tall tales of the Indian variant and how it spread quickly because the anti-vaxxers just wouldn’t get vaxxed. But the anti-vaxxers held firm.
This afternoon, multiple media outlets in the UK are talking up a new scariant. Credit to a Telegraph writer for coining the term scariant by the way.
The Telegraph is reporting this afternoon that:
So far just 49 cases of the strain, named VUI-21MAY-01 or AV.1, have been recorded mostly in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
Public Health England has said there is no evidence to suggest it is any more transmissible than other variants or that vaccines are less effective.
The new variant has a “strange combination of mutations” and has been classified as a “variant of concern” with extra testing and tracing being carried out.
Downing Street said this lunchtime that the variant is being monitored and stressed “we won’t hesitate to put in measures that we think are necessary to try and tackle the transmission of any variants”.
If this bullshit doesn’t convince the vaccine hesitant to come forward, maybe a quadruple mutant scariant might do it. Look out for that next week. Hats off to the news presenters who can report this crap with a straight face. I couldn’t.
They’re over-egging the pudding. This is a sign that they are becoming increasingly desperate that we submit to the jab. It’s a weak play. It’s also extremely repetitive. “We found a variant. We won’t hesitate to put in measures to prevent it spreading. Come forward when you’re called to get your jab.”
