Indian Covid-19 variant found in 44 countries: WHO

The WHO said Wednesday that the Indian variant of Covid-19 has been found in dozens of countries all over the world. The UN health agency said the B.1.617 variant had been detected in more than 4,500 samples uploaded to an open-access database ’from 44 countries in all six WHO regions.’ Outside of India, Britain had reported the largest number of Covid cases caused by the variant.

Stop chasing variants of mutations! Mutations/variants are in many tens if not hundreds already. Its what viruses do to survive. The Covid19 virus when in a hostile environment can mutate within less than a day, literally in ten hours if pressed. We live our whole lives in constant contact with bacteria and viruses and naturally exchange the latest variants/mutations every time we come within air transmissable proximity to others. This can be at thirty feet away to embracibg others and THIS is how we humans survive extinctions from contagions. . . . . .by social gathering, our herding nature and so keep our immune system at peak with each mutation etc. Hiding in seclusion is exactly the wrong thing to do as missing many mutation updates means more severe symptoms and increase the risk of fatalities. The small step incremental updates are 99%+ Asymptomatic and the individual never gets to know each day that numerous bacteria and viruses have entered their system but is dealt with ease. Only those with an already compromised immunity are at risk that adding any virus in addition to an existing bad health are those who DO need to remove themselves from mixing until the rest of the regional masses have built the herd immunity. When knowing this we can see that the deaths we had around the world from the addition of Covid19 to individuals statistically with two or more pre-existing health condition are those that died. What all this tells us is that, to be prepared if another contagion appears is to make an emergency to isolate those with health conditions whilst leaving the relatively healthy to carry out the best protection for society of all, to continue mixing, socialising in order that herd immubity is acquired in the absolute minimum of timescale in order that those with compromised immunity can return to normal socialising at the earliest opportunity when the risks for them is lowest. So the WHO is right to chatise those countries for failing to act soon enough, but its also fact that lockdowns kept the mix of both healthy and unhealthy peoole together, in both the isolating groups and the key worker groups so enabling the virus to reach all the unhealthy and take so many of their lives. So even WHO is giving advice that will still create masses and masses of avoidable deaths.

You know that vaccine you all just got? Not only do you need to take it every year for the rest of your life but now you get to have another vaccine for the rest of your life. Congrats.

Mexico adopted mass use ivermectin in January, deaths dropped rapidly. Easter European and Panama also. Now India https://youtu.be/3UTuT9TSRFQ Indian State Will Offer Ivermectin To Entire Adult Population — Even As WHO Warns Against Its Use As Covid-19 Treatment https://www.forbes.com/sites/siladityaray/2021/05/11/indian-state-will-offer-ivermectin-to-entire-adult-population---even-as-who-warns-against-its-use-as-covid-19-treatment/ Mexico Panama and serveral Eastern European countries have seen deaths drop to very low levels after mass use of ivermectin Bulgaria and Slovakia have approved ivermectin for nationwide use.

"China virus" is racist. "Indian variant" is not.

And yet you still can't provide samples of the isolated virus at a level above 100 base pairs....
