    I don't know why countries all over the world are banning travel from that region. Once they've identified and sequenced the new variant, it's already too late and cat's out of the bag.

    It is about not letting too many cats out of the bags. Of the 600 passengers arriving at Schiphol from Cape Town and Joburg yesterday – 61 testet positive.

    Exactly my point. Once they've identified and sequenced a new strain, it's already too late for containment measures.

    Geez, between Covid and climate change, not exactly the greatest moment in history to be alive, is it? Now all we need is China to invade Taiwan, Russia to invade Ukraine, and maybe throw in a global financial collapse, and we'll be good to go.

    Right, because containing the delta variant worked so well.

    Yep cases already just discovered in the UK this morning. Sounds like the stable door was bolted long after the horse had bolted (again ) :-(

    Nothing to worry about...
    They are already tweaking the vaccines to counter the new and any other subsequent mutations.
    There is so much money to be made.
