Second “more transmissible” strain of coronavirus detected in UK - BBC News

The health secretary has announced two cases have been detected of another new strain of the coronavirus in the UK.

Both were contacts of cases who have travelled from South Africa over the past few weeks, he said.

He said: “This new variant is highly concerning because it is yet more transmissible and it appears to have mutated further than the new variant that has been discovered in the UK.”

The health secretary said both cases and close contacts of the cases have been quarantined.

There are immediate restrictions on travel from South Africa and the government is telling those who have been in contact with anyone who has been in South Africa in the last fortnight that they must quarantine.

He added: “These measures are temporary while we investigate further this new strain which is shortly to be analysed at Porton Down.”

  1. The government is preaching fear to the people. Why do that when your duty as government is to solve the problem? Nasty people you are pretending to be important and in control. Ask the people what they want. It is like something from the eleventh century. Mad bad government.

  2. I am well aware this could be real, and I am not saying it’s not. But it seems, since younger people are more likely to get infected now,
    If we look at how younger people were more “rebellious” and wouldn’t listen as much when the virus wasn’t mutated,
    It seems they’re trying to scare young people into staying inside too, since it didn’t work last time.
    But I suppose that’s just a thought.

  3. All this doom and gloom in the UK meanwhile in non-insane countries of the world they are living their lives with minimum restrictions. Guess what? The UK will go down the tubes and get bought up by the countries that didn’t go bat-ship crazy and crash their economies over a virus with virtually non-existent death rate. Get ready UK, the Americans and Russians are lining up to buy your now-worthless companies. Say goodbye to your lazy working conditions, it’s going to be American style workhorse days for you.

  7. Funny that the government “TRUSTS” the British public. They must as well say” please stay at home but if you can’t that’s fine too” too many people living in this country that are following their own rules.

  8. if you know anybody who has a nose, or you know anybody who knows anybody who has been anywhere with somebody who has a nose, you have to quarantine yourselves for two weeks alone without even seeing your own wife and children. Do you think we're stupid or what? you're just making us in prison ourselves because it's cheaper than imprisoning half of the overpopulated nation, and filing cases of old people who died from other ailments as Covid cases. like the great Archbishop said recently, "this is just a cover-up for the great reset" all media channels are owned by very rich billionaires with agendas, who have political beliefs, and each media station leans towards one particular political party. This is the second time we have made a New World order since the first time in 1946. Ask Warren Buffett. It was the great depression of 1933 that began the control of the central bank of her all governments through the printing of money even though they had no resources to represent that money they were printing. Then they changed to the FEAT monetary system in 1946. It has now out run ads game, and the numbers don't add up anymore. So we are moving to a digital society, and whilst resources are being moved around, everybody is being kept locked in. Micro influencers and micro influencers who are The highest paid bloggers are paid to fill the first three pages of Google and YouTube, with only the news they want us to see. Apart from this, anybody who denies the existence of this supposed, alleged virus, is said to be a fake news disseminator. And such information is deleted from the Internet. But all news is opinionated and therefore fake just like this. just like 9/11, it is just a way of getting people to except higher security measures and more surveillance than ever before without protesting

  9. I had the virus at the end of April and had very serious symptoms, but for a moment I understood what to take and in 5 minutes the situation returned to normal! let's make short … I took 4x 20mg of Piroxicam EG and 20 tablets of spirulina for the circulation of the blood and the situation miraculously returned to normal quickly, so 80mg of Piroxicam EG is the help you need for those who have the severe form … for those who have a persistent headache a single tablet of Piroxicam EG will suffice … after I went to sleep, I had conquered the "virus"; the next day I will see on google what it is> anti-inflammatory !!!!!!! Is that so !? at that time it was forbidden, dangerous haha ​​glad not to have been to die in the hospital … now there is progress: they give an anti-inflammatory but which are not good … unfortunately a few thousand additional deaths in prospect … I know I'm not addressing the right audience but the brain is the key, piroxicam is for the brain (not medrol or anything else) and therefore the best anti-inflammatory while waiting for the vaccine. and shame to doctors for not believe and let the poeple die
