The mainstream media is now downplaying the new variants saying that there is not need to worry about the recent COVID-19 outbreaks. But even so, they still need you to get injected upon command.
The Pirola Covid variant has an alarming number of mutations, but it doesn’t seem to be taking hold or causing severe illness. But the Food and Drug Administration “approved” new shots anyway for a variant that’s not dominant in circulation anymore and they expect everyone to rush to get it.
A new offshoot of Omicron, BA.2.86—nicknamed Pirola—has popped up in Israel, the US, South Africa, and the UK after it was first recorded in Denmark in late July. Pirola initially set off alarm bells because it was spotted in four countries at the same time—and because, having majorly curtailed our viral surveillance systems, we don’t know how long it’s been making the rounds. Plus, the sheer number of mutations it has was reason enough to be spooked—BA.2.86 boasts more than 30 new mutations, compared to the most recently dominant variant, XBB.1.5. -Wired
Early studies suggest that Pirola isn’t much better at evading immunity than previous variants, despite all of its mutations. The protection offered by vaccines should hold up, and if you’ve been naturally exposed to the XBB variant, you should be better equipped to fight off this new variant, according to the mainstream media.
Anna Bershteyn, an assistant professor and co-lead of the Covid modeling team at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine, agrees, with the media’s assessment. “As far as we know, it doesn’t seem likely that this is going to be one of these huge waves of hospitalizations and deaths, the kind that have overwhelmed the health system in prior epidemic waves,” she said.
Pirola is shaping up to be the scariant used by the media and ruling class to convince people to get more injections.
