We Are Being Told The “Scary” Mutant COVID In South Africa Is Even More Dangerous Than The “Super COVID” In The UK

    A new mutant strain of COVID-19 that has been dubbed “501.V2” has gotten completely out of control in South Africa, and authorities are telling us that it is an even bigger threat than the “Super COVID” that has been causing so much panic in the United Kingdom.

    Of course, viruses mutate all the time, and so it isn’t a surprise that COVID-19 has been mutating.  But mutations can become a major issue when they fundamentally alter the way that a virus affects humans, and we are being told that “501.V2” is much more transmissible than previous versions of COVID and that even young people are catching it a lot more easily.  That is potentially a huge concern because up until now young people have not been hit very hard by the COVID pandemic.

    The British press is using the word “scary” to describe this new variant, and at this point, it has become the overwhelmingly dominant strain in South Africa…

    The new mutant, called 501.V2, was announced in Cape Town last Friday and is believed to be a more extreme variant than Britain’s new Covid strain which has plunged millions into miserable Christmas lockdowns.

    Cases in South Africa have soared from fewer than 3,000 a day at the start of December to more than 9,500 per day, with the mutant accounting for up to 90 percent of those new infections.

    If this same pattern happens elsewhere as this new mutant strain travels around the globe, then “501.V2” could eventually almost entirely replace all of the older versions of COVID.

    Authorities are optimistically telling us that the recent vaccines that have been developed will “likely” work against this new variant, but the truth is that they will not know until testing is done.

    And if the vaccines don’t work against “501.V2”, we could be back to square one very rapidly.

    For now, countries all over the globe are banning flights from South Africa in a desperate attempt to isolate this new version.  The UK, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, and Israel are among the nations that have banned those flights, but so far the United States is not on that list.

    So people that are potentially carrying this new version of COVID continue to enter the U.S. on a daily basis.

    For the United Kingdom, this flight ban may have come too late because two cases of “501.V2” have already been identified on British soil

    Two cases of a new, “more transmissible” COVID-19 variant linked to South Africa have been identified in the UK, the health secretary has said.

    Both cases are contacts of people who travelled from South Africa over the last few weeks, Matt Hancock said at a Downing Street news conference.

    If the new vaccines are effective against “501.V2”, authorities believe that they already have the long-term answer to this new variant.

    But if those vaccines don’t work, this pandemic could be entering a far more deadly new phase.

    And of course we are hearing about more problems with these new vaccines on a daily basis.  Thousands of adverse reactions have already been reported to the CDC, and more reports continue to pour in as more people get the shots.  Here is one example from New York City

    A health care worker in New York City had a serious adverse reaction to a coronavirus vaccine, officials said on Wednesday.

    New York City Health Commissioner David Chokshi said during a news conference that the unidentified worker experienced a “significant allergic reaction” to the vaccine. He added that the worker was treated for the reaction, and is in stable condition and recovering.

    We should not be surprised that there are major issues with experimental mRNA vaccines that are based on entirely new technology that were rushed into production without proper testing.

    And of course there are tens of millions of Americans that will never take any mRNA vaccine that literally “hijacks your cells” under any circumstances.

    On the other hand, most of the U.S. population seems to think that these new vaccines will bring this pandemic to an end, but if they don’t work against new mutant versions of the virus that won’t be true at all.

    It is so important to take a balanced view of these things.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to COVID most people fall into two camps.

    The first camp is totally freaked out because they think that COVID is about the worst thing that could ever happen to the United States and they tend to favor extremely draconian measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

    But the truth is that the COVID pandemic pales in comparison to other great pandemics throughout human history.  The Black Plague and the Spanish Flu Pandemic each killed at least 50 million people.  As for the COVID pandemic, the global death toll has not reached the 2 million mark even if the official numbers are accurate.  If a pandemic of this nature is freaking people out so much, what is going to happen when a truly killer plague is unleashed in our society?

    The second camp either thinks that the pandemic is greatly exaggerated or that the virus doesn’t even exist at all.  Even though hordes of people are catching the virus all around us, many out there continue to deny the reality of this crisis.

    I simply do not understand that.  So many people that I know around the country have gotten the virus, and that includes quite a few big names.  For example, the following is an excerpt from an article in which Daisy Luther shares what her experience with COVID was like

    Days 3-5: Over the next three days, chills and fever were almost constant. My joints and muscles hurt. Getting up to go to the bathroom felt like an expedition up a mountain.  I was tired and winded. I had very little appetite and even less of an inclination to cook food so I existed mostly on peanut butter and crackers and leftover soup. I was absolutely exhausted and so cold that I shivered violently when I got out from under my bed piled high with blankets. I had super-weird dreams. My cough worsened, my head hurt, and my throat was still mildly sore.

    I drank lots of water and electrolyte beverages. My thirst remained unquenchable regardless of how much I drank. I took vitamins (C, D3) and took Zinc supplements. These are my regular supplements but I doubled that.

    Days 6-9: The line to get a test at the local clinic was long and filled with people who were coughing up a lung. There was no way I’d be able to stand in that line for an hour, as sick as I felt. Besides, I figured if I didn’t have Covid, I’d get it standing in the line so I opted not to be tested.

    This part made me think of the worst case of the flu I ever had, except intensified by about four times. It was terrible.

    I usually let a fever run its course but by Saturday I felt so awful that I gave in and began treating symptoms. My normal temp is in the 96s and my temperature throughout these days stayed between 101-103. I staggered ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and I also used a mild muscle relaxant and my Ventilyn inhaler. The meds didn’t get rid of my fever but reduced the chills to a tolerable level. I slept almost around the clock, waking up for a couple of hours here and there to check on website stuff. Fortunately, I have a wonderful team who kept things running for us. One day blurred into the next and I considered going to the doctor again, but couldn’t muster the energy. I felt like if I just got a little more sleep I’d be okay.

    My cough was getting far worse and now my ribs and abdominal muscles hurt. It was a deep painful cough that caused me to clutch my chest every single time inhaled deeply.

    So to summarize, yes the COVID pandemic is real, but it is not the end of the world.

    More people are going to get sick, and some will suffer intensely, but the vast majority of those that get the virus will survive.

    If you want to wear a mask, then wear a mask.

    If you don’t want to wear a mask, then don’t wear a mask.

    We should be free to make our own choices, and we should also be free to experience the consequences for those choices.

    Unfortunately, there are way too many people out there that think that they have the right to censor and control what we say and what we do, and that trend is likely to only get worse as our society continues to spin out of control in the years ahead.

      1. Well, I for one am not worried at all.Covid = massive hoax. After all, a “mutant” strain of a phony “virus” is not a threat to anyone.Just remember folks: Nothing mutated from nothing still adds up to nothing.?Let’s just keep it moving folks, there’s absolutely nothing to see here.Carry on as you were.

      2. Covid 19 lies/propaganda.The gift that keeps on giving and giving and…????

      3. Oh no!!! If these mutations continue I’ll have to hide in the basement with creepy Joe!!!?

      4. I heard from a confidential whistleblower that there is a super covid virus ? on the Moon & it is all Trump’s fault …. ???

        • @Random Tangent 1957 – Of course there is probably some super covid virus on the moon.After all,we are constantly reminded from the msm/liars that this is the most incredible virus EVER! It can mutate,make decisions,live on surfaces 4 like 4 ever,and destroy anything/anyone in it’s path! The other day this mighty virus even infected a kiwi fruit! Any monster of a virus that can do all of this (and more) would have no trouble traveling to the moon and causing unimaginable terror there as well!!!!???!!!!!

      5. Message received.Apparently,we will all have to rush out now and get the latest “helpful” covid vaccine.This shot will “help” us and keep us “protected” from this latest wicked mutation.Someone just told me that the new strain has just mutated while I was writing my comment.Must hurry! On my way right out the door to get my vaccine! Hope I survive! Bye guys!!!!!

      6. I recently looked up the definition of propaganda and a CGI photo of covid turned up. Go figure. ?

      7. 12 Monkeys



      8. This is probably just the beginning of all this BS, next will be the new super-duper x10 mutation of this virus in some remote island in the Pacific. Gotta keep the fear going.

      9. That new forms of covid even more dangerous and virulent have been discovered is entirely predictable. This is because the people of the world were gaining an understanding of the real nature and dangers of the present covid-19. Therefore, as per standard gov’t control tactics, more dangers, hence to induce more fears, had to be promulgated to put populations back under control. This only confirms to me we will soon see more draconian lockdowns in the near future. Standby to see MSM propaganda showing new vast numbers of sick and dying people, along with more demands for heavy-handed gov’t intervention.

      10. It is,there’s a lot more shit involved, a. fucci has too get a much larger straw so he can suck all that shit up then spew it out everywhere. Saying stay in separate rooms that farting is contagious, airborne particles. Causes Fart Attacks. This guy is full of shit . Just like all the pig committee. Can’t believe a word they say. EVER… Elbulleheal

      11. Interesting how claims of mutations are now being made when the original virus has yet to be isolated.

        • With all due respect, as I have only seen drawings —

          COVID was apparently isolated, within hours of becoming a news item.

          Or, it was isolated, well ahead of time, imhblo.

          Doctors already knew that COVID consisted of a patchwork of many, notorious diseases, and they could locate certain points where diverse, viral particles had been fastened, together, before most civilians were even aware.

          If people have already gained natural immunity, it’s a testimony to our amazing immune system, so notorious were these diseases.

      12. @Sophey,you are so right.That is how these filthy liars operate.”We have found the mutations first and we will worry about finding/isolating the original virus later” smh ?

      13. “If a pandemic of this nature is freaking people out so much, what is going to happen when a truly killer plague is unleashed in our society?”

        “The Masque of the Red Death” (originally published as “The Mask of the Red Death: A Fantasy”) is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1842. The story follows Prince Prospero’s attempts to avoid a dangerous plague, known as the Red Death, by hiding in his abbey.”

        It affects elitists, in their private sanctuaries, but is also messy, within public view, demanding scapegoats and blood-for-blood.

        Everyday people thought it was the end of the world, so threw themselves away.

        Primitive means of air purification, nutrition, and hygiene spared those, marginally-awake.

      14. We all know this mutation garbage is just more lies and fear mongering from these evil bastards This will only escalate as they continue on with their sick agenda.Funny thing is there is a mutation going on,but,not with phony 19.The only “mutation” visible here is by these psychos such as Fauxi. People(and I use the term people loosely) such as this asshole regularly adapt/ mutate their evil agendas/narrative as need be to control the masses and keep everyone living in a perpetual state of fear.The absolute trash known as the msm of course follows the exact same tactics to ramp up the fear amid the sheep.It does my heart good to read this website on a regular basis and see that so many people on here are wide awake to the b.s. constantly being shoved down our throats by the msm/”experts”on a daily basis.We must all continue to stay alert/vigilant because we all know that the lies/fear tactics used by those behind this evil agenda will only continue to be ramped up even more. I wish everyone reading this the very best.

      15. Seriously,did anyone here not see this “virus mutation” b.s. coming from miles away from these evil bastards??Anyone?Anyone at all???

      16. Hard to keep track of all these different covid but I’ll give it a try.So far, we have your everyday run of the mill covid,we have super covid and our latest addition mutant covid.Wouldn’t mutant covid make for an awesome name for a rock band! Their music will absolutely “kill” ya! You just know the bastards behind covid 2020 are already working on the names for upcoming covid mutations. Covid Redux,Covid Ultra,Covid Lite,Diet Covid,Gluten Free Covid,Vegan Covid,Bad Ass Covid,and,of course the ever popular Covid 2.0 making its worldwide debut in 2021!!!?
