A new strain of coronavirus has emerged


Late November in the West sounded the alarm and began to urgently prepare for an offensive against humanity of another type of dangerous coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 - strain B.1.1.529 "omicron", which was identified in South Africa. Now specialists from the Mediterranean Institute of Infectious Diseases (IHU Mediterranee Infection) in Marseille (France) have identified a new strain - B.1.640.2 in French tourists who brought it from Cameroon.


Now the new strain is spreading across the south of France. Scientists have found that the new version of COVID-19 contains 46 mutations, but there is still no data on its level of threat or infectivity. The worst thing is that scientists cannot predict the appearance of new strains; they are only able to state the fact that a new one has appeared.

It is assumed that B.1.640.2 is more dangerous than the omicron, which had “only” 32 mutations. At the same time, virologist Alexander Chepurnov predicted the appearance of a supercoronavirus earlier, in which there will be many more mutations. Even recombinations with other strains are possible, and one of the newest properties of the coronavirus has already become that it was able to receive an insert of a certain cold virus.

On January 4, WHO expert Abdi Mahamoud told reporters at a briefing that the World Health Organization has been monitoring B.1.640.2 since November after a signal from French specialists.

We have three types of strains: Traceable, Interest and Concern. So we have been tracking B.1.640.2 very closely since November, as well as two of its sub-variants

- he specified.

On the same day, the US authorities announced that the COVID-19 incidence record was updated in the country per day - more than 1 million cases of infection were detected. Before that, 590 thousand people fell ill in the United States per day.

    Myasnikov noted that there is no new disease like coronavirus... He said that there have always been both acute respiratory viral diseases, such as influenza, rhinoviruses and other human coronaviruses, as well as viral pneumonia. “Now I have appeared and occupied a dominant position a new causative agent of acute respiratory infections and viral pneumonia: coronavirus CoV-2, ”added the doctor.

    He also noted that in terms of clinical manifestations, a new coronavirus does not differ from acute respiratory infections and pneumoniacaused by other pathogens. The long-term consequences do not differ either. “So the isolation of covid as a separate disease is more justified from the point of view of healthcare organization than clinical medicine,” Myasnikov said.

    As far as I understand, it finally dawned on "doctor" Myasnikov that there is no coronavirus disease, but there is flu. And if it is not treated, then the person can die. And if the treatment is wrong, then the person will surely die.

    “His natural mortality increased when the organization of medical care in the face of an unexpected wave poured into misplaced lines of defense, and falls when it encounters a high percentage of the vaccinated population, ”said the doctor.

    But he stubbornly clings to the false message of vaccination. A person cannot say that he drove a blizzard through the TV box for two years.

      It was when they buried from the flu in packs and turned stadiums into hospitals? How many more corpses are needed among relatives and friends to stop equating the coronavirus with the flu?

        I didn't put the equal sign. Contact Myasnikov.

    This is rotten "news" for a long time, and the topic of covid is no longer poking around.
    Omicron is the lightest variation of the virus, probably the last.

    These strains will now spawn like mushrooms after rain. After all, vaccine manufacturers and covid diagnostic laboratories must profit from the state budget. The media also put their paws here. They scare the vaccinated healthy people. As if healthy, not sick people are dangerous to the vaccinated. During the epidemic of covid, it was possible to create a cure for it long ago, as was done in Japan, and covid would have been done away with long ago.
