Mutations are going to continue to be a problem while spread is high (in any country). The way to reduce the risk is to vaccinate everyone, everywhere. The effort needs to continue globally. No one is vaccinated until everyone is vaccinated.
No, because naturally acquired immunity works too.
Do we vaccinate everybody for flu, or for colds?
Did you know that already 4 coronaviruses that circulate freely within the human population and have done for several generations?
They rarely cause bother except in very elderly / sick, for others its a cold / cough, maybe a touch of fever, but we all get exposed to these every few years.

Dominic Cummings’ plan to test millions of people a day for coronavirus led the government to spend over £800m on quick turnaround tests that were later found in a pilot to give the wrong results as much as 60% of the time, the Guardian can reveal. Innova Medical Group is now believed to be the largest single recipient of payments from UK government contracts during the pandemic.

The government's decision to hire a firm with links to the PM's ex-chief adviser Dominic Cummings has been challenged at the High Court.

Campaign group The Good Law Project has complained of "apparent bias" in the decision to recruit Public First for Covid-19 opinion polling last year.

But Mr Cummings said the £540,000 contract had been "entirely justified".

you don;t have to be here. you don't have to type anything.
you are doing it of your own free will.
This is becoming obsessive. Think how many variants of a cold virus there are? Note the word now is variant not coronavirus; it could be any number of viruses they are tracking and I’m sure there are countless. Time to move on; protect the vulnerable; focus on treatments and at getting our citizens healthy. Unfortunately it’s those that don’t take care of themselves that are becoming sick. Removed

And this is why I do not want lockdown to end soon. Variants need to die off if possible, so vaccines don't become ineffective and lives are not lost due to simple measures not being taken / taken too late.

Some people are just too impatient to get back to "normal" and carry on as if no one matters to them but themselves.
and then all of a sudden a new varient is discovered..stay locked down for longer..comit suicide Removed

It’s just boring now. We need our courts to step in and make a legally binding end to these stupid restrictions. The virus will never go away.

Let me guess, you’re a free loading benefit scrounger that wants these restrictions to continue for ever? Some of us want to get on with our lives. Removed

Go on girl. Give it some. Go L-A-R-G-E.

You are the one! We bow before your superior knowledge and wit.

Now off to bed because the Lab needs you in early tomorrow to continue work to save the Human Race.

The covid vaccines do not meet the accepted scientific definition of a vaccine. They are instead a form of gene therapy. Removed

Pfizer and Moderna perhaps.
Astra Zeneca and Sputnik are more traditional vaccines.

The root cause for the spread of this is multi-culturalism. The planet's become a heinz 57 mongrel nation. Whereas previously there were pockets of infectious diseases which erupted and infected locally, especially in insanitary communities, nowadays global travel and mixing aids the spread worldwide.

Is it sounding like mass euthanasia in U.K. due to the new damning evidence on survival rates for anyone sick? Sick disabled people are nearly three times more likely to die compared to healthy individuals.

A commission needs set up to look at the mess this government has caused?

Yet more project fear, non reporting by the BBC. Not a single word in the guts of the article supports the scare mongering first paragraph.
End the licence fee now to make this “information” juggernaut accountable.

We would never have been told all this information in the past and nobody would have wanted to know the weekly/monthly death rate! Our nation has to stop feeding this info out every single day. BBC this means you also. Causing hysteria and scare tactics come to mind!

"Maybe Corybn was not a bad choice after all"

He would have tried to do the right thing

Tried to alleviate suffering and injustice

He may well have failed disastrously

But he would have tried

Tories try to do the opposite

Labour tries to help and usually fails

Tories try to harm and always succeed
