BREAKING! Chinese Scientists Identify New SARS-CoV-2 Gamma Variants In Shandong! Relaxation Of Lockdown Is Due To Failed Zero COVID Policies Not Success!
Researchers, from the Shandong Provincial Center For Disease Control And Prevention has released information to the media (CCTV-Chinese Language News) that a new SARS-CoV-2 Gamma variant
has been identified among infected individuals in the county of Roncheng.
The new variants were discovered among 4 asymptomatic individuals whose viral samples were sent for genomic sequencing at the Weihai City Centre For Disease Control and Prevention labs.
According to the Chinese scientists, when compared with the Wuhan reference strain (NC-D45512), the genome sequences of the 4 cases of local infection of the new coronavirus variant are highly homologous and there were 36 nucleotide mutation sites that correspond to those found on the VOC/Gamma Variant strain (P.1.15 evolutionary branch).
The three defining and concerning mutations of the Gamma variant ie N501Y, E484K and K417T were found on the genomic sequences of the new variant as well.
These genomic sequences when compared on the GISAID global databases were found to be highly homologous to previous sequences uploaded from Chile.
The four individuals had no previous travel history and were also not known to be in proximity to any foreigners.
Chinese authorities are conduction more tracking studies and also conducting more vigorous testing and genomic sequencing if individuals in Roncheng county.
Chinese researchers are warning that the SARS-CoV-2 emerging variants are evolving such that they not only escape both vaccine induced immunity and natural immunity but also are able to disrupt the human host immune system so that literally no conditions or symptoms would emerge upon infection hence accounting for a large number of asymptomatic infections and mild symptoms in majority of the healthy population but in those that are vulnerable ie with existing comorbidities or are aged or immunocompromised, disease severity will set in and also the risk of mortality increases. A study recently released also collaborates these pathogenic changes. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/university-of-maryland-study-warns-that-accessory-gene-mutations-in-emerging-sars-cov-2-variants-are-altering-pathogenesis
However, contrary to perceptions that this evolutionary mode of the new SARS-CoV-2 variants that leads to more asymptomatic or mild symptoms is a good thing, the new variants could be actually doing far more damage to the human host silently till conditions arise when eventual symptomatic manifestations occur, sometimes fatal such as heart failures! The virus is now able to spread in the various anatomic compartments of the human host and affect cellular pathways, tissues and organs while damaging them in the process. A dysfunctional immune system will also help other diseases to progress faster such as cancers and also aid in secondary opportunistic pathogenic infections and the Chinese scientists are warning that excess deaths due to heart failures, strokes, CVST incidences, organ failures including kidney and liver, sepsis, etc are all going to become a common occurrence soon. (something that Thailand
has been saying for a while now)
Unknown to many, the BA.2, BA.4 and BA.5 has to date spawned over more than 92 unique subvariants (There are many more but these are the identified ones possessing worrisome mutations) that are concerning and are fast spreading globally and also the emergence of third and fourth generation Delta subvariants which are also concerning. The emergence of new Gamma variants in China indicates that health authorities around the world should stop being complacent. While such new variants that are able to cause asymptomatic or mild symptomatic conditions initially and silently kill the masses over time, the kinetics of the pandemic and the way things are being managed are all indicating that the chances of a faster killing and lethal strain is also like to emerge very soon.
The recent lifting of lockdown measures in Shanghai were used as propaganda by certain Zero COVID zealots claiming that lockdown and stringent measures were attributed to the success of Shanghai’s ‘claimed’ victory over SARS-CoV-2.
In reality, local doctors and researchers are claiming that the actual scenarios are far from the truth. Infections are still high but the Chinese government has realized that its lockdown measures were no match for the new Omicron variants that were highly transmissible and the lockdowns were draining the economy exponentially. Coupled with the ‘good news’ that most infections were now asymptomatic or mild, the Chinese government is now adopting strategies as proposed discreetly by the United Nations and World Economic Forum, that is to remove all lockdown measures, resume economic activity and reduce testing and also stop reporting of daily COVID-19 infections and deaths and let people who die from it be categorized as due to other medical causes. They are also advocating to downplay the seriousness of Long COVID. This policy is now being adopted by most governments across the world while most of the stupid masses are unaware that infections or reinfections with the SARS-CoV-2 are going to kill them slowly.
Already Thailand Medical News
has been warning that based on modeling platforms on what we know as to how SARS-Cov-2 affects the various cellular pathways, causes immune dysfunction, causes dysregulation of various genes and how viral persistence is damaging tissues and organs, it is projected that majority of those exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus will have shortened life spans without any therapeutic interventions. It is projected that most will only have another 5 to 8 years left for those under the age of 50 and reinfections could also shorten their lifespans even more. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/most-who-have-been-exposed-to-the-proteins-of-the-sars-cov-2-virus-will-have-shortened-lifespans-stop-using-fluvoxamine-for-ba-2-infections
