The onset of the Delta (Indian) and Epsilon (Californian, currently not widespread in Europe) variants developed by Covid-19 in its mutations is already raising the specter of a third dose shot as much as that of an annual booster vaccination. But it also raises doubts about the actual effectiveness of vaccines.

«The effectiveness of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines in relation to the “California” version of SARS-CoV-2, called Epsilon, decreases by 50-70%. The Epsilon coronavirus mutation found in California has learned to bypass antibodies. The research by scientists from the University of Washington and the Vir Biotechnology laboratory has been published in the journal Science (link at the bottom of the article)» reported the Russian network Sputnik.

«Experts have found three mutations in the new strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in critical regions of the spike protein, which the virus uses to connect with the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on the cell surface. One of these changes involved the binding zone of the coronavirus “harpoon” receptor ».

The other two mutations remodeled some of the spike protein. Thanks to these metamorphoses, the coronavirus has “learned” to neutralize the monoclonal antibodies that form after being immunized with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Mutations in the new Epsilon strain likewise bypass the natural antibodies that form in humans after being infected with a coronavirus, scientists say.

 

SWISS-AMERICAN RESEARCH ON CALIFORNIAN VARIANT

«A novel variant of concern (VOC) named CAL.20C (B.1.427/B.1.429), originally detected in California, carries spike glycoprotein mutations S13I in the signal peptide, W152C in the N-terminal domain (NTD), and L452R in the receptor-binding domain (RBD). Plasma from individuals vaccinated with a Wuhan-1 isolate-based mRNA vaccine or convalescent individuals exhibited neutralizing titers, which were reduced 2-3.5 fold against the B.1.427/B.1.429 variant relative to wildtype pseudoviruses. The L452R mutation reduced neutralizing activity of 14 out of 34 RBD-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). The S13I and W152C mutations resulted in total loss of neutralization for 10 out of 10 NTD-specific mAbs since the NTD antigenic supersite was remodeled by a shift of the signal peptide cleavage site and formation of a new disulphide bond, as revealed by mass spectrometry and structural studies».

We read in the research “SARS-CoV-2 immune evasion by the B.1.427/B.1.429 variant of concern” published Science on July,1,2021 by Matthew McCallum and Alexandra C. Walls (with other researchers from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Washington, Seattle, USA), Jessica Bassi and Anna De Marco (with other colleagues from Humabs Biomed SA, a subsidiary of Vir Biotechnology, Bellinzona, Switzerland ), Alex Chen and Maria Agostini (with other colleagues from Vir Biotechnology, San Francisco, USA) Sasha W Tilles (with other researchers from the Center for Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases, Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, USA), together with Sonja Bernasconi Guastalla, independent physician, Giovanni Bona (with colleagues from the Clinical Research Unit, Clinica Luganese Moncucco, Lugano, Switzerland) and Christian Garzoni from the Clinic of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases, Luganese Moncucco Clinic, Lugano, Switzerland).

Sars-Cov-2 Epsilon variant worldwide according to Science’s research

«To assess the impact of the three mutations present in the B.1.427/B.1.429 S glycoprotein on neutralization, we first compared side-by-side the neutralization potency of mRNA vaccine-elicited Abs against G614 S and B.1.427/B.1.429 S pseudoviruses. We used plasma from fifteen individuals who received two doses of Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccine and from fifteen individuals who received two doses of Pfizer/BioNtech BNT162b2 vaccine collected between 7 and 27 days after booster immunization (table S2). All vaccinees had substantial plasma neutralizing activity against G614 SARS-CoV-2 S pseudotyped viruses» explained the researchers of the Swiss and American institutes.

«These data indicate that the three B.1.427/B.1.429 S residue substitutions lead to a modest but significant reduction of neutralization potency from vaccine-elicited Abs» was the bitter conclusion of the study.

«Serum or plasma neutralizing activity is a correlate of protection against SARS-CoV-2 challenge in non-human primates and treatment with several neutralizing mAbs has reduced viral burden and decreased hospitalization and mortality in clinical trials (10, 14, 15, 22, 23, 49). The observed L452R-mediated immune evasion of B.1.427/B.1.429 S concurs with previous findings that this substitution reduced the binding or neutralizing activity of some mAbs prior to the description of the B.1.427/B.1.429 variant. The acquisition of the L452R substitution by multiple lineages across multiple continents, including the B.1.617.1 and B.1.617.2 lineages emerging in India, is suggestive of positive selection, which might result from the selective pressure of RBD-specific neutralizing Abs» reads on research.

«The SARS-CoV-2 NTD undergoes rapid antigenic drift and accumulates a larger number of mutations and deletions relative to other regions of the S glycoprotein The data herein showing immune evasion of all tested NTD-specific mAbs by the B.1.427/B.1.429 variant also support that the NTD antigenic supersite is under host immune pressure. Similar to how the S13I/W152C mutations facilitate evasion of all tested NTD-specific mAbs, E484K causes broad resistance to many RBD-specific mAbs. The independent acquisition of the E484K mutation in the B.1.351, P.1, B.1.526 variants and more recently the B.1.1.7 variant (34) suggests this could also occur in the B.1.427/B.1.429 lineages. Indeed, 4 genome sequences with the E484K RBD mutation in the B.1.427 variant have recently been deposited in GISAID. Alternatively, the S13I/W152C mutations could emerge in any of these variants. We note that the S13I mutation was recently detected in the SARS-CoV-2 B.1.526 lineage, which was originally described in New York » the scientists concluded.

 

THE ALARM FOR THE DELTA VARIANT

The alarm comes after the growth of the Delta variant in Italy and in the world is causing positive cases of Covid-19 to rise because it is very contagious, although it has very few symptoms, as claimed by Professor Francesco Vaia, director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani of Rome (among the first to isolate the Italian strain of Sars-Cov-2). All of this has not only made the goal of herd immunity a utopia but has already prompted Pfizer to seek authorization for a third dose.

VARIANTE DELTA, “SINTOMATOLOGIA SCARSA, NIENTE ALLARMISMI”. Il Direttore dello Spallanzani zittisce i Terroristi Pandemisti

This request was also rejected by the Food and Drug Administration in the USA and by the EMA (European Medicines Agency) in the European Union, probably well aware that this strategy could create even more chaos among those groups of populations skeptical about vaccines.

As this happens right after the revision of the package inserts of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines (renamed Spikevax) with the inclusion of the danger of rare cases, unfortunately even lethal, of myocarditis and pericarditis. And a few days after the publication of updated data as of July 3 from the EudraVigilance pharmacovigilance platform on adverse reactions in EU countries that have registered more than 17,000 deaths after one or two doses of the four EMA authorized vaccines.

PIU’ DI 17MILA MORTI DOPO I VACCINI COVID NEI PAESI UE. Il 49 % di 837mila Reazioni Avverse sono Gravi!

Among these there are also the dramatic statistics on adverse reactions recorded by the EudraVigilance platform which show a limited efficacy of the current vaccines (and in particular of Pfizer): 745 fatal cases in total involving the unknown of 3,876 infected with unknown outcome, that is, it is not known whether they have recovered and died.

In Italy, the case of four nurses, all serving in the hospital of Gela, in the province of Caltanissetta, has caused a sensation, tested positive for covid despite having already had the second dose of vaccine administered in recent months. The four have mild flu symptoms and now the unions Nursind and Uil Fpl are asking to start a screening of workers to measure the level of antibodies.

UE, RADDOPPIA IL NUMERO DI VACCINATI MORTI DI COVID. 745 Casi Fatali (479 dopo Pfizer) su 9mila Contagiati. E di 3.876 non si sa la Sorte!

Israel, on the other hand, has just stated that it has seen the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine drop from 90 to 64% with the spread of the Delta variant. Mikael Dolsten, Pfizer’s scientific director, said that the critical issues that Israel is experiencing with the new infections would be due to infections in people vaccinated in January or February. “There is probably a risk of reinfection because the antibodies go down as expected,” he said.

WUHAN-GATES – 26. SARS-2 Bio-Weapon & Gold Vaccines. From CIA-WHO Tests funded by Gates to EU Summit with Pfizer, Biden’s sponsor, before Pandemic!

Albert Bourla, Pfizer’s chief executive and creator of the RNA vaccine, believes that “people will need a booster dose of Covid-19 vaccine every 12 months and that the company is developing an updated version of the vaccine that takes the entire spike protein of the Delta variant. ‘

«It is understandable that drug companies enthusiastically push for a recall, as it would bring them huge profits. But at the moment there are no supporting data, so the FDA and CDC are right to give, for now, a negative opinion. For the future, let’s be careful and let’s get ready» says virologist Roberto Burioni, professor at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, commenting on Pfizer’s announcement on Twitter.

 

THE RISK OF VACCINE-RESISTANCE

The risk of a vaccine-resistance had already been announced between February and March by an interview with the Italian molecular biology expert Dr. Loretta Bolgan, published in Gospa News in relation to the dangers of pulmonary immunopathology inherent in vaccines as evidenced by a university research Chinese, and from a prophetic article written by Christie Aschwanden in the authoritative specialist journal Nature.

“We’re moving away from the idea that we’ll hit the herd-immunity threshold and then the pandemic will go away for good,” says epidemiologist Lauren Ancel Meyers, executive director of the University of Texas at Austin COVID-19 Modeling Consortium. This shift reflects the complexities and challenges of the pandemic, and shouldn’t overshadow the fact that vaccination is helping, according to Nature.

«“The vaccine will mean that the virus will start to dissipate on its own,” Meyers says. But as new variants arise and immunity from infections potentially wanes, “we may find ourselves months or a year down the road still battling the threat, and having to deal with future surges”.

Long-term prospects for the pandemic probably include COVID-19 becoming an endemic disease, much like influenza. But in the near term, scientists are contemplating a new normal that does not include herd immunity. Here are some of the reasons behind this mindset, and what they mean for the next year of the pandemic» wrote Aschwanden.

Exclusive – “With Covid Vaccines Risks of Pulmonary’s Serious Injuries”. Shocking Research on Nature Journal, ignored by Scientific Community, Big Pharma and Media

“Herd immunity is only relevant if we have a transmission-blocking vaccine. If we don’t, then the only way to get herd immunity in the population is to give everyone the vaccine,” says Shweta Bansal, a mathematical biologist at Georgetown University in Washington DC. Vaccine effectiveness for halting transmission needs to be “pretty darn high” for herd immunity to matter, she says, and at the moment, the data aren’t conclusive. “The Moderna and Pfizer data look quite encouraging,” she says, but exactly how well these and other vaccines stop people from transmitting the virus will have big implications.

«Even as vaccine roll-out plans face distribution and allocation hurdles, new variants of SARS-CoV-2 are sprouting up that might be more transmissible and resistant to vaccines. “We’re in a race with the new variants,” says Sara Del Valle, a mathematical and computational epidemiologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. The longer it takes to stem transmission of the virus, the more time these variants have to emerge and spread, she says» reads on Nature.

«There’s another problem to contend with as immunity grows in a population, Ferrari says. Higher rates of immunity can create selective pressure, which would favour variants that are able to infect people who have been immunized. Vaccinating quickly and thoroughly can prevent a new variant from gaining a foothold. But again, the unevenness of vaccine roll-outs creates a challenge, Ferrari says. “You’ve got a fair bit of immunity, but you still have a fair bit of disease, and you’re stuck in the middle.” Vaccines will almost inevitably create new evolutionary pressures that produce variants, which is a good reason to build infrastructure and processes to monitor for them, he adds» concluded Aschwanden.

 

THE VARIANTS MAY BE CREATED BY VACCINES

These notable passages of the article are perfectly connected with what has already been reported by Gospa News on the Covid-19 variants thanks to an interview conducted by Professor Francesco Cappello to Dr Loretta Bolgan, who graduated in chemistry and pharmaceutical technologies in Padua, where he earned his PhD in pharmaceutical sciences working as a Research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston). She then worked as an industrial researcher in the development of molecular biology diagnostic kits.

Dr. Loretta Bolgan, expert in molecular biology

With reference to the SARS-Cov-2 virus, Dr. Bolgan specified: «We must consider that single-stranded RNA viruses such as these, not only rapidly form mutants, especially in the part of the Spike which is immunogenic, thus managing to escape quickly to what is the attack of the immune system, especially adaptive. There is, in fact, an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase that introduces many errors in its replication, thus forming, very quickly, mutants with mutations that are present in all the viruses of the new mutant, that is, in all copies, at 100%. However, it can also form a population of minor mutants, present in a percentage ranging from 20 to 80% of the major mutant that are called almost-species».

Boston’s Research (even funded by Gates) reveals Unknown-Dangerous Risks in M-RNA Vaccine already Explained by Chinese Study

«So alongside the major mutant there are also hundreds of these minor mutants, all in competitive equilibrium with each other. When vaccinating, specific antibodies are produced for the vaccine antigen but these antibodies produced through the vaccine are not able to bind to all minor mutants, so the minor mutants that escape the binding to the vaccine antibody are properly those that are they replicate and resist because they have a selective advantage. They are then selected precisely by vaccination and here is the resistance vaccine! And here the famous London variant, as well as those that occurred in France or elsewhere, could have this origin. It’s easy to assume that they were caused by vaccination» added the molecular biology expert.

 

VACCINES AGAINST A BIO-LAB MANMADE VIRUS

Following the line of the reasoning of Dr. Bolgan but also of the other experts cited by Nature, the suspicion emerges that the immunization campaign is a “dog biting its tail” in a vaccine-resistance spiral similar to the one that in the last decade has alarmed about antibiotics.

Unfortunately, however, the scientific community, largely funded by the Big Pharma vaccines gathered in a “cartel” by Bill Gates on September 30, 2020, seems to want to proceed in the only direction of global immunization, preached by the same NGOs of Gates – that today manage the WHO Covax plan – in very suspicious times during a “prophetic” summit organized by the European Commission in Brussels on 12 September 2019 which saw the participation of a Pfizer manager.

WUHAN-GATES – 32. Bill III, Vaccines’ Global Emperor. Crowned by Big Pharma’s Cartel within Gates Foundation’s Deal

As evidenced by the complaint for the massacre, presented to hundreds of public prosecutors by the biologist Franco Trinca together with the lawyer Alessandro Fusillo and the army of their “followers”, multiple effective therapies against Covid-19 were and are being ignored to make the guidelines of the Italian government of a “watchful wait with paracetamol”.

These methods of treatment have proved counterproductive for many patients and less effective than other therapies such as Vitamin D and Cortisone, reported by Gospa News on the basis of authoritative medical research but ignored by the Italian Minister of Health Roberto Speranza.

The great unknown about the origins of the SARS-Cov-2 virus is also grafted into this chaos of ignored scientific information, which by now dozens of researchers believe to have been created in the laboratory with the gain of function for the enhancement of the viral load.

WUHAN-GATES 39. “SARS-2 Manmade in Biolabs with Gain of Function”. Two new Scientific Researches Accused China and Fauci. But Forgot Gates-Biden Intrigues

This aspect is far from irrelevant in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic because the confirmation of an artificial origin can legitimize not only the theory of a laboratory “leak” but also that of an intentional release of a SARS-Cov -2 which has all the characteristics to be defined as a disturbing bacteriological weapon, given the reported presence of HIV inside the SARS pathogen as tested in dozens of researches on chimeric recombinant viruses conducted in “a deal between China and the US” according to professor Luc Montagnier.

If this viral nightmare was really built in the laboratory who can exclude that it has not been calibrated in various genotypes of different lethality, as hypothesized by bio-engineer Pierre Bricage, former NATO consultant?

 

MASSACRE IN RUSSIA: BY VARIANTS OR BIO-WEAPONS?

Who can exclude that behind the variants are not hidden precisely these different pathogens engineered as bio-genetic weapons, studied by the DTRA agency of the Pentagon in the laboratories of the former Soviet Union (in Georgia and Ukraine) and therefore capable of affecting a certain population-ethnicity compared to another? Until there is the will of governments to clarify / admit the origin of the laboratory SARS-2 virus, known to all intelligence in the world according to an Israeli military intelligence microbiologist, these doubts will remain a huge mystery.

WUHAN-GATES – 9. THE PROOFS: HIV inserted in SARS chimeric virus in 2007. Thanks to Australian & EU Commission Funds

These spy story hypotheses, in fact, could perhaps explain why the Delta variant in Italy has not caused a significant increase in mortality, although 40% of the inhabitants are not yet vaccinated, while in Russia it is causing a massacre …

“In Russia in the last 24 hours, 752 deaths caused by Covid-19 have been ascertained, the maximum in a single day since the beginning of the epidemic: the Tass reports citing the anticoronavirus operations center. According to official data, in Russia during the last day there were 25,082 new cases of coronavirus, of which 5,694 in Moscow “.

The lethality rate rose to 2.46% while only 19 million Russians received at least one dose of the vaccine (Sputnik V) in the country against a population of 146 million. Eight regions, therefore, will introduce mandatory vaccination to increase the percentage of vaccinated. But a new nightmare is already on the horizon …

«The World Health Organization has revealed that it has placed a new Covid-19 strain first discovered in Russia on its online list of variants for monitoring. It joins a selection of eleven other unnamed coronavirus mutations. The strain was first detected in January this year, but it has only now been deemed severe enough to be listed» reported Russia Today.

According to the WHO classification system, variants are determined first to be designated for “further monitoring,” before being promoted to “of interest,” and then, finally, “of concern.” If the newly discovered variant found in Russia is determined to be more serious, it will be given a Greek letter name. As of now, it is simply known as AT.1.

  1. Sorry, since there have been conspiracies continuously created by US government and it military, I’m assuming that the latest Epsilon Californian variant resisting to vaccines has a 50% possibility as a test by US researchers in order to design more cunning and deadly virus to re-attack China. Possible or impossible?

  2. Undoubtedly, this is the top level virus in history and can only be made by top level sci-tech country—USA!

    Some may argue that it was leaked from Wuhan lab, but this is impossible because they always attach top level importance to cooperation with US researchers and impose top level security measures to prevent any possible mishaps.

    Yes, the virus was indeed possibly processed in Wuhan lab, but it was just like a prototype, far less deadly than the pandemic-capable COVID-19 virus. And the possible prototype was finally sent to US researchers in NC University and military bio labs for much more enhanced finishing touch—making it a pandemic-capable virus, and hence the intentional release worldwide, first, attacking China just when the high nationwide population move came before the traditional Spring festival, and when China successfully controled the pandemic in a month, the virus was immediately and very easily released to attack Iran, Italy and France, this is sth. China cannot do and will never do, until finally, “the chicken came home to roost”—USA was attacked by COVID-19 virus imported from EU.

    So, obviously, both Trump and Biden have been cunningly playing a highly deceptive game of “thief crying ‘stop thief'”, thanks to their international media domination.

    • About”THE VARIANTS MAY BE CREATED BY VACCINES”, as far as I know, there seems to be no study to prove it yet, but to me, it seems to be a fact that before vaccines were widely applied, the virus mutated slowly with just a few variants, but after vaccines were widely applied, the virus mutated much faster, creating far more cunning variants. Is my memory correct?

  3. This is a 3 part post.
    Part 1
    Montagnier, the French virologist, made the observation that vaccinating during a pandemic leads to virus mutations, months ago. Little attention was paid to this.

    That there are serious concerns about a number of vaccines (which still do not have been approved other than for emergency use) is becoming more obvious everyday. Even the Salk Institute has an article about this on their website. Stephanie Senneff also has an interesting article about it as do numerous other scientists, doctors and virologists.

    However, having said all this, it is my humble opinion, that a number of these mutations have also been laboratory created and are being seeded in certain areas. In order to mutate, the virus has to meet an immune response. For this it needs to enter the system of a vaccinated person. Looking at vaccination demographics versus the explosive occurrences of the many mutations we now see, I have some serious doubts about the organic nature of these explosions. Not just because of the time frames involved.

    Looking into the types of mutations versus the predominantly used vaccines in affected areas, may supply us with a clue.

    That this is a man made virus is no longer a question, but a fact. VT has exposed this explicitly.

    End of part 1

    • Montagnier is totally unreliable. This man burned himself to the ground on hydroxychloroquine early on.

    • Montagnier can stick his Nobel Prize up his ass, right? And, Fauci can stick his $1 million “prize” from Israel in the same place. In whose hands would you place your fate? We may never find out the truth as political espionage and ego mania is all over this pandemic.

  4. Part 2

    If this virus is indeed an attempt to cause global harm, it is not a giant step to be concerned about the acclaimed response to this pandemic having some nefarious objectives as well. Big pharma has been caught with their proverbial pants on their ankles enough times to question their trust worthiness. The reputation of the FDA, I don’t even want to start to address.

    To blanket black paint anybody who has concerns about these (non approved) vaccines as “Antivaxxers” is about as idiotic as calling all Mexican people rapists and murderers.

    More than ever before, we need to band together to conquer this pandemic, not create more artificial rifts.

    In order to fight this virus, prevent people from being infected, and last but not least curing the infected, we MUST look at all options, be they naturopathic, homeopathic or pharmaceutical. Supplements and nutrition are essential components of an immune system supporting protocol.
    And don’t start your rants about any of these, my knowledge is sufficient in depth to know what works and what not.

    Last but not least, viruses are extremely smart organisms. One virologist talks about (herpes viruses) “negotiating” with the virus in order to suppress outbreaks.
    In order to end this pandemic we NEED to consider any and all options. Funnily enough, encountering mutation responses and non responses against naturopathic remedies are extremely rare.

    End of part 2

  5. Part 3

    The organizations/people involved in the creation of these type of pandemics, and as we all know by now, COVID 19 is not the first attempt, should be apprehended and held accountable. As I am losing my trust in Benjamin’s dragon societies to step up to the plate in an efficient manner, so it may be up to us, common people, to band together and start to address this, instead of waiting for another miracle cure to be presented to us by the manufacturers of opioid “medicines”.

    But above all, we need to stand side by side right now, all differences can be considered none essential at this point, unless you want the next generations to live a life like we have experienced over the last year.
    No child interaction with other children, no family reunions, no outdoor concerts, actually, no concert attending at all, constant suspicion if your friends actually practiced social distancing, looking at the unmasked as the criminals of our society, no casual relationships, no forging new friendships face to face, and above all, an iron Government control like we see now evolving in Australia: no jogging outside of a ten km radius of your home.

    BTW, there ARE protocols which help the infected. I witness it here presently with a friend infected with the virus, treated with an “unapproved” pharmaceutical medication and supplements.
    Thank God for doctors with guts!

    END.

    • While waiting for the vaccine rollout, it would have been an interesting strategy to vaccinate those that wanted it and let everyone else use alternatives shown to be empirically effective. But document it all! We would have had a clearer picture of what was effective and a more complete trial than the one we are witnessing. The major problem I have with the current approach is the limiting of our choices. Many died and are still dying. Let anyone who wants, choose how they want to take this on and reduce societies division. Besides, we currently allow people to overeat non-foods, smoke, drink etc. We have even butchered and maimed countless others in military crimes over the last 100+ years.

    • Just another guy. Everything you have said here I have been ranting on VT for months. The Duffs don’t buy into the mind body connection and holistic health practices. That stops your (and my) discussion of alternative approaches to the pandemic dead in its tracks. That is very frustrating, and the only benefit in visiting this site is the useful information Fabio brings from around the world. The VT editors aren’t scientists but claim all alternative medicine is bad science. That’s the kind of sophomoric logic you’ll get here. It’s going to be a rough ride.

  6. Thank you Fabio for keeping up on this Covid “massacre”
    This is very expected and disturbing data. I know you are right about Vitamin D and hydrocortisone (for respiratory involvement). Have you been following developments on Ivermectin. The studies I have come across sound very promising. It looks like for healthcare workers and those critically susceptible to this Covid-19 and it’s variants will have to be treat this as an extremely serious ’flu’ from now on. Vaccines forever.
    I don’t believe science or governments will be able to hide behind this being a naturally induced virus much longer. Intelligent people are becoming aware and active. This genetic monkey business will haunt us forever and should make planetary humans critically aware of the horrific cost of race superiority forces in society. Corruption is innately human.

    • The horse is out of the barn, it’s all over but the shouting and other cliches apply here. As long as one person can provide a “home” for this bioweapon and its mutated spawn, the pandemic will rage around the world. Whoever developed this virus was a true evil genius. After it finishes collapsing the world economy, the human scavengers will fight over the spoils. Since we refuse to shut it all down, the mutants will spread. That seems to be our fate. The vaccines by themselves will not stop it. But, we are always looking for the quick fix rather than difficult behavior modifications. Oh well.
