Weeee....and so it begins.

Now from the description this variant has the ability to evade the vaccine which is interesting since at least six people that I know are fully vaccinated have come down with COVID in the past two weeks. I am thinking it has been here longer than just November 22.

That's a problem GOP protocol is insufficient for international travel.

The earliest they've been able to backtrack it was to a sample in the Netherlands collected a week before it was identified in SA. November 19th or something like that.

I'm sure it's here, just not sure it's been here that long.

#7 I remember back in 2020 the "first case" of COVID was declared in Jan 2020. Now it clear that it was circulating in the US in late 2019.

"The researchers identified seven participants from five states (Illinois, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Mississippi) who tested positive for antibodies against the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, prior to the first reported cases of COVID-19 in those states. The earliest detection came from a sample collected Jan. 7 in Illinois. Because it takes about two weeks for a person to develop these antibodies, the new findings suggest the virus may have been circulating in Illinois as early as Dec. 24, 2019, according to the study, published Tuesday (June 15) in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases."

Shutting down travel from anywhere is a useless panacea as it is already here and has been spreading for two weeks now. With travel for Thanksgiving it is probably in all states by now.
