Super-mutant ‘vaccine resistant’ Botswana Covid variant is driving South African surge
A new Covid variant feared to be ultra infectious and vaccine resistant is driving a Covid surge in South Africa and could become dominant in the country ‘very quickly’, scientists warned today.
주위에 100 cases of B.1.1.529, its scientific name, have been detected so far in three countries and the World Health Organization is convening an emergency meeting tomorrow to investigate the troubling strain.
South Africa’s Health Minister Joe Phaahla described the variant as ‘a major threat’, warning that it was behind an ‘exponential’ increase in cases across the country.
Experts in the UK today called for the red travel list to be reimposed to prevent the strain being seeded in the country. Professor Christina Pagel, from Independent SAGE, urged ministers to ‘get ahead of this right now’.
Nationally, infections in South Africa have surged tenfold from 100 per day to 1,100, after the variant was first detected in neighbouring Botswana on November 11.
Professor Tulio de Oliveira, a director of Covid surveillance in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, told a hastily organised press conference today that it has been spotted in nearly every corner of South Africa.
He admitted he was still ‘uncertain’ about the impact of the variant — which could be named ‘Nu’ by the WHO within days — on the country’s epidemic, with other scientists saying that it might be so evolved that it becomes unstable.
But Professor Oliveria explained the new variant has five times more mutations on a specific part of the spike protein than Delta — meaning it might be better at infecting vaccinated people than the world-dominant strain.
In other coronavirus developments today:
- Britons face being banned from travelling into the EU unless they are fully vaccinated against Covid under new rules being hammered out in Brussels today;
- The EU’s drug regulator approved the Pfizer vaccine for children as young as five;
- Data showed less than a quarter of pregnant women in the UK have had a Covid vaccine;
- Experts said Novavax vaccine, which may be just days away from approval in the UK, could be safer for children than the UK’s current jabs;
- The family of a grandmother in her 50s left brain-damaged and paralysed from the neck down after contracting Covid have today won the latest stage of a life-support treatment battle;
- A vegan patient spoke of her upset after claiming she was left unwell in a Brighton hospital bed with nothing to eat but ginger nut biscuits.
Britain’s slight increase in cases took the total amount of people who have had the virus at some point during the pandemic up to more than 10million.
The true number of people who have had the virus is likely to be higher because of a shortage of testing in the early months of 2020 and people not getting tested when they are asymptomatic.

It marked a rise of 18 per cent compared to the estimate on the previous week and means one in 66 영국인은 주어진 시간에 증상이 있는 감염을 겪었습니다., King’s College 런던 scientists who run the study said.

스펙터 교수는 말했다.: '다시 증가하는 사례를 보면 참 안타까운 일이고 최근의 기복이, 이전 웨이브와 달리, 일이 매주 어디에서 일어날지 예측하기 어렵게 만들고 있습니다.. 하나, 나를 위해, 메시지는 사례가 여전히 너무 높다는 것입니다..
The ZOE study showed cases are highest in children aged under 18 (blue line), who are seeing more than 30,000 symptomatic infections per day. 대조적으로, 노인들 75 이상 (purple line) have the lowest level of illness, 이하 1,000 cases estimated in the age group each day

Get your booster by December 11 and you’ll be ‘highly protected’ at Xmas
Eligible Britons have a two-week window to get a Covid booster if they want to have maximum protection from the virus on Christmas Day.
The NHS has issued a plea to the roughly 7million — or three in 10 — eligible people who have yet to have the crucial third dose.
Real-world UK data shows protection against getting sick with Covid rises to more than 90 per cent two weeks after the injection. Immunity against hospitalisation and death is even higher.
It means that getting a booster by December 11 will give people ‘very high protection against Covid by Christmas day’, 관리들은 말했다.
Boosters are being offered to everyone over 40, so long as it has been six months since their second dose. But people can book their appointment at the five-month mark.
Figures show 23million people were double-vaccinated against Covid by May 25, roughly six months ago.
현재 16 million boosters have been administered, suggesting 7million (30 퍼센트) have still to come forward.
The UK is hoping for a relatively normal Christmas this year after surging Covid cases in the last few weeks of 2020 prompted last-minute lockdown curbs.
'우리가 등장하지만, 당분간, 사례 수 면에서 일부 유럽 국가보다 나은 결과, 영국은 상대적으로 높은 입원 및 사망률을 계속 유지하고 있습니다., 이것은 우려의 실제 원인입니다.
'현재 우리 병원의 과부하를 감안할 때, 지금은 영국을 코로나19의 성공 사례로 묘사할 때가 아닙니다., 그것에서 멀리.
'새로운 사례의 증가는 어린이에 의해 주도되는 반면, 그들에게 단기적으로 초점을 맞추는 것은 실수가 될 것입니다.’
그는 계속했다: '정부가 크리스마스에 대한 제한을 시행하지 않을 것 같지만, 가족 모임은 의심할 여지 없이 위험을 증가시킬 것입니다, 특히 아직 세 번째 백신 접종을 받지 않은 노인 및 취약한 가족 구성원의 경우.
'크리스마스를 저장하는 것은 우리에게 달려 있습니다.. 세 번째 잽을 받을 자격이 있는 사람들은 지금 가져와야 합니다., 감기와 유사한 증상이 있는 4명 중 1명은 코로나바이러스.
'위험을 고려하고 휴일 동안 가족을 병원에 가지 않도록하십시오.’
Children are less likely to suffer severe illness and death with Covid than older, more vulnerable adults — explaining the current trend in falling hospitalisations and fatalities over the past week in the Government’s own data.
Admissions fell for the eighth day in a row to 722 토요일에, the latest date data is available for — a fall of more than a third on the more than 1,000 daily hospitalisations recorded a month ago.
Death likewise fell yesterday to 149, down a quarter on the previous week and marking the fifth day in a row fatalities had fallen.
