Now It Is Lambda

Just thought I would let my readers know in case they had not heard…..the Delta variant has a competitor….Lambda variant…..

The delta variant is spreading in the population and in the news. But the lambda variant of the virus that causes COVID, which popped up in South America, is definitely attracting the attention of researchers, who fear it might be more resistant to vaccines than other variants. And now it’s in Japan, thanks to the Olympics, the Japan Times reports. A woman came to Japan from Peru on July 20, tested positive for the coronavirus but had no symptoms, and quarantined. By July 23, authorities new she had the lambda variant. But the health ministry didn’t release the results until after the 2020 Olympic Games were over.

The World Health Organization calls the delta variant a “variant of concern,” but has labeled lambda a less-serious “variant of interest.” And, though COVID is surging in Japan after the Games, officials aren’t blaming the Olympics—or lambda—the Hill reports. But one Japanese politician, Masahisa Sato, was critical of his government’s failure to disclose the case. “If it was spotted at the airport quarantine, they should have announced it,” he said on a Japanese news program, the Daily Beast reports.

And with all the loosening of precautions here in the US….Lambda should find a willing atmosphere here in the US to help it run rampant.

Stupidity can be lethal.

Use Precautions….Be Well….Be Safe….
