At least 10 state health departments in the United States have detected the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant of COVD-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, according to a new report.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in an update on Jan. 15, said that a “more highly transmissible variant of SARS-CoV-2, B.1.1.7, has been detected in 10 U.S. states.” SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the coronavirus that is believed to have emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019.
Health officials warned that models have shown the B.1.1.7 strain of the virus has the potential to increase “the U.S. pandemic trajectory in the coming months” and “warrants universal and increased compliance with mitigation strategies, including distancing and masking.”
Increased vaccinations may need to be achieved to fight the virus, the CDC said.
This variant was first reported in the UK in mid-December, although the CDC noted that it may have emerged in September 2020. Meanwhile, B.1.1.7 has been detected in more than 30 countries, the agency said, while adding that it is easier to transmit than other CCP virus strains.
In the United States, the strain was first reported by state authorities in a rural area in Colorado, hours away from Denver. Other than Colorado, the B.1.1.7 variant was discovered in Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, California, and more, according to reports published in recent weeks.

Transmissible should not be confused with more lethal. The only impact would be a faster herd immunity if left untreated in the wild.
Guess it’s gonna be more than 3 weeks huh? 😷🐂💩
Gotta keep THE FEAR going until their patsy Biden is official.

Joe Biden will fix this one day one.
Covid is a LIE, it is a HOAX, it is the FLU!!!
The 2020 Seasonal Flu Has Dropped by 98% Worldwide as It Is Re-labeled Covid-19
It may be more transmissible, but not more virulent.
Stop the scare campaign.
No one believes a damn thing said by democrats about this mutated strain.
People are on COVID OVERLOAD.
CDC and FauXi have patents on these, too.
Royalties to them for every test, every treatment,
every photo by any means. THEY OWN IT ALL
including what should be coming TO them for
violating WARCRIMES LAWS for their own profit.
Clearly we need to have a 9 month lockdown...
The article actually indicates that there isn’t evidence of it being more contagious. And I’m not posting it for fear porn purposes, contrary to your apparent fantasies about me.
OPEN UP NOW!!!
Screw that. Given the stability of this virus, I doubt that B.1.1.7 is going to ruin our days.
I was joking, but it doesn’t matter what the virus truly is, it matters what the politicians and media say.
I see retards wearing masks while driving alone...often.
Another ignorant opinion from the uneducated. You clearly are on the fringe of reality. Probably better for you to be quiet and thought a fool than speak up and remove all doubt.
Please show me one, just one, instance where "distancing and masking" have prevented or reduced the transmission of the virus. Just one.
I’ve stopped keeping my mask on for convenience for short hops between stores. It’s just getting ridiculous, seeing all the zombies out there walking around outdoors with the masks. I go to a store, I carry the mask with me right to the doorway, then put it on, then I take it again off shortly after I leave.
INDOORS is where this virus can be problematic. You have a much lesser chance of catching or spreading this thing in the open air, absent crowds, IMO.
Step away from the bong.
Governors are also now claiming they’ve run out of vaccine. This is all a lead up to shutdown.
