European markets weighed down by fears over new Covid strain

European stocks fell sharply Monday as focus shifted to a fast-spreading new variant of the coronavirus that has shut down much of the UK. While all sectors and major bourses slid into negative territory, travel and leisure stocks lead the losses. The pan-European Stoxx600 traded down over 2%. The British Pound has taken a beating falling to $1.3349, compared with levels around $1.36 last week.

New strains appear in the news just when the vaccine starts rolling out. Still not getting the vaccine. Nice try

Europeans are like the new serfs. They enjoy being told what to do by unelected officals
