The first case of the U.K. variant was found in Colorado today. The man is in his twenties in Elbert County and has been quarantined. A study in Nature Journal, above, mapped out the different viruses thus far, and the study mostly determined the U.K. variant is less harmful than the SARS-COV-2.
The latest news confirms that there are thousands of corona viruses present in the world. Extensive research has estimated that there are currently 12,000 corona viruses active in the world today.
While the vaccines have been mainly found to be effective against this variant, according to the research, the major manufacturers have branded the vaccines for label usage against SARS-COV-2 only.
It’s possible that exposure to the variants of COVID-19 assist in later immunity to SARS-COV-2 via the human body’s development of antibodies for the variant that also fight COVID-19. More research is needed. However, there is no reason for alarm. The symptoms are usually more mild than the main strain.
CDPHE warned that the variant is cause for alarm, as it may be more contagious than the COVID-19 strain. Before state, federal, local governments and the CDC made a mess of Coronavirus, the more contagious a virus, the prevailing thought was that herd immunity would be reached quicker.
That probably won’t be the case this time around.
