Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing Breaking—Fears growing that a new #DeltaVariant subvariant has emerged after 5000 young people infected from attending a 53,000 music festival in Cornwall—linked genetically to a Delta subtype. The region now has the highest #COVID19 rate in England. https://inews.co.uk/news/health/bo
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · 16) I know it’s a busy day with two new troubling variants, but in addition to the UK Cornwall music #festivalvariant subtype of Delta, I think the new #C12 variant is worse. It is the MOST MUTATED variant found to date—see below thread
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing NEW VARIANT—a new #SARSCoV2 variant C.1.2 just identified in South Africa & several countries, with concerns it could be more infectious and evade vaccines. #C12 also has mutation rate that is nearly **twice as fast** as the rate of the other variants. https://jpost.com/health-science
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing Replying to @DrEricDing 17) Even the #DeltaVariant appears to continually acquire new mutations. There are now a dozen or more Delta subtypes. But the newest one from Cornwall’s music festival appears to be one of the largest new subtype pockets.
