Delta AY sub-variant, which requires 'urgent research', detected in these U.S. states

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said scientists should study the Delta AY.4.2 subvariant due to it's U.K. spread

An Outbreak.Info chart showing sample detection of AY.4 with Y145H (AY.4.2) in the U.K.Outbreak.InfoIt's a version of the AY.4 Delta variant that already accounts for around 80 percent of recent cases in the U.K. Now, scientists have noticed an offshoot of the AY.4 variant—an offshoot of an offshoot—that includes a spike mutation known as Y145H.

In the U.K. it has accounted for around eight percent of new sequenced cases in recent days and about one percent of total cases, Outbreak.Info shows.Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from 2017 to 2019, took note of the variant in a tweet on Sunday and said it had been increasing in prevalence since about July.

He wrote:"We need urgent research to figure out if this Delta plus is more transmissible, has partial immune evasion?"There's no clear indication that it's considerably more transmissible, but we should work to more quickly characterize these and other new variants." headtopics.com

UK reported its biggest one-day Covid case increase in 3 months just as the new delta variant AY.4 with the S:Y145H mutation in the spike reaches 8% of UK sequenced cases. We need urgent research to figure out if this delta plus is more transmissible, has partial immune evasion?

— Scott Gottlieb, MD (@ScottGottliebMD)October 17, 2021Cornelius Roemer, a bioinformatics scientist, has suggested labeling the new Delta offshoot with the name AY.4.2.AY.4.2 remains very rare in the U.S., where only six sequences have been recorded. In the U.K. by comparison, there had been 14,385 sequences as of October 16.

It has only been detected in four states altogether, Outbreak.Info shows - Oregon, where there have been three cases, and North Carolina, Washington, and Washington D.C., where there has only been one case in each.Professor Christina Pagel from the Department of Mathematics at University College London (UCL) has noted on

Twitterthat the AY.4.2 is"not growing anywhere near as fast as Delta did" and said the variant is"something to keep an eye on but not panic over."That was 10 days ago, so hopefully it will start showing up in COG & Sanger tracking soon. headtopics.com

New Zealand Extends Auckland Lockdown As Delta Variant Outbreak Continues To GrowEarlier this month, the New Zealand government admitted that its zero-Covid strategy was no longer feasible in the face of the highly infectious delta variant of the coronavirus. I thought she was woman of the year! horrible 90% vaccination in New. Vaccine don't work.

Covid-stricken states still struggle months after Biden’s surgeFederal officials sent to help states struggling the most to contain the Delta variant were not able to ward off surges and crowding in hospital intensive care units They were sent a vaccine that they should have taken. THERE IS A NEW VIRUS VARIANT OUT IN THE UK 🇬🇧 THAT HAS SCIENTIST WORRIED 🤔🤔🤔 Biden’s surge . What a bunch of crap! To blame any covid problem here in Alabama on the federal government is to ignore the reckless abandon with which the Alabama government and populace treat this disease!!

Colin Powell dies from COVID complications, was fully vaccinatedBREAKING: Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell dies from COVID complications, was fully vaccinated He was an 84yr-old prostate cancer survivor battling multiple myeloma = cancerous plasma cells accumulate in bone marrow, crowd out healthy white blood cells, & the cancer cells produce abnormal proteins instead of helpful antibodies thus making mRNA vaccines much less effective.
