BREAKING BA.2.86 News! Scientists Alarmingly Discover That BA.2.86 Variant Has Also Picked Up FLip Mutation L455S!
: The BA.2.86 variant which so called Western ‘experts’ and Western mainstream media had earlier deemed as being not so transmissible and only causing mild infections is once again unveiling that the many strategies it is deploying to become a dominant player in this coming Winter surge that is likely to supersede whatever we have witnessed during the Delta waves!
Scientists have discovered that it is picking up what is known as the FLip mutations which can make it more immune evasive with possible increases in disease severity and increased risk of mortality for those that are infected with it.
To date, about 4 sequences of the BA.2.86 with the FLip mutation has been found in 4 different countries with the first one detected in Iceland on the 20th
The BA.2.86 variant which has more than 30 new mutations on it is still rapidly evolving and its first spawn BA.2.86.1 is also producing a variety of sub-lineages with concerning mutations on it.
To date, the BA.2.86 variant has been detected in 24 countries with more than 260 sequences from infected individuals uploaded on GISAID and also detected in waste water samples in many geolocations.
From various BA.2.86 News
updates, the 24 countries where the BA.2.86 variant has been detected so far include Israel, Denmark, United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France, Sweden, Iceland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Luxemburg, Belgium, Netherlands, Japan, Thailand, South Africa, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, Greece, China and Hong Kong.
Interestingly of the genomic sequences of BA.2.86 uploaded on GISAID, about 68 of these sequences were from hospitalized patients which indicate that the variant does increase the risk of disease severity.
It is without doubt that the SARS-CoV-2 BA.2.86 variant and its spawns will be among the cluster of various new variants and sub-lineages that will drive a bad winter 2023/2024 surge as many newly emerging data have shown that contrary to earlier misinformation peddled by certain online Western ‘experts’, the virus is indeed more widespread and does possess the
relevant viral fitness to become predominant besides being more immune evasive, more pathogenic, more fusogenic and even has a high viral replication rate.
While many preprint studies by the vaccine manufacturers and unethical researchers that are probably paid directly or indirectly by the vaccine manufacturers are falsely claiming that the new COVID-19 vaccine boosters containing the XBB.1.5 spike proteins are effective against the BA.2.86 variant and its spawns, data from China has showed that this is not the case.
With the emergence of this new BA.2.86 strains with the FLip mutations, scientists are extremely worried that we might be coming to a stage where there is no longer any protection rendered by previous infections or by the vaccines and we could see possible alarming scenarios where the human host no longer has any immune defenses against the SARS-CoV-2 virus with the virus wreaking havoc on the human host leading not only to disease severity but also to increased risk of mortality!
