Skip to comments.New California Variant May Be Driving Virus Surge There, Study Suggests
Posted on 01/19/2021 5:06:44 PM PST by springwater13
In late December, scientists in California began searching coronavirus samples for a fast-spreading new variant that had just been identified in Britain.
They found it, though in relatively few samples. But in the process, the scientists made another unwelcome discovery: California had produced a variant of its own.
That mutant, which belongs to a lineage known as CAL.20C, seemed to have popped up in July but lay low till November. Then it began to quickly spread.
CAL.20C accounted for more than half of the virus genome samples collected in Los Angeles laboratories on Jan. 13, according to a new study that has not yet been published.
“We had our own problem that didn’t cross over from Europe,” said Jasmine Plummer, a research scientist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, who worked on the new study. “It really originated here, and it had the chance to start to emerge and surge over the holiday.”

Most likely brought in from illegals crossing the border.
democrats drive for lying.
What utter drivel.
It layed low.
I have, yet another, dumb question.
Don’t viruses become less lethal the more they mutate?
Well joe will save us by enforcing masks in cars by on the interstate, while the airline force you to vax against covid 999 each year, or walk.
This stuff is so miraculous we must force ot on you. Obey your pharma masters. They are cha ching in the biggest way.
Nobody lives in LA now, it’s too crowded....
Drivel should be slimes’ middle name.”The New York Drivel, All the Pablum That Fits.” Walter Duranty ring a bell?
That’s what wearing masks will get you
Maybe, they should toss some virgins into a volcano
I wonder if this China bug is intended to do that to the U.S. and Europe.
“maybe, they should toss some virgins into a volcano”
Virgins? In Cali?
In the long run yes.
Right now it is mutating to evade “capture”
Was it designed to do that by the Bat Lady?
G, who would’ve thought viruses mutate. I could’ve told you that, and so kind of most everyone else on this website, but the liberals and their “expert” scientists said it wasn’t possible now if we just wore masks the virus will disappear.
“Don’t viruses become less lethal the more they mutate?“
Yes, yes they do. Replication is never perfect and very rarely is a mistake in favor of whatever is being replicated.
I heard it quickly reduces the IQ of those infected. But there are so many in CA already with low IQ’s, they’re having a difficult time distinguishing between those infected with those who are not. It’s causing tremendous chaos.
Please watch and read the following.
The CDC, NIH, WHO have suppressed an effective early treatment of covid. You need to petition your governors to fix this. Ivermectin has been on the table since the first tests early this year from Australia. Dr Cory has testified before the Senate twice now. Also attached is latest from India and EVMS Dr Marik.
To the Governors of this country, get your heads out of your ass and fix this... The people in DC will not.
Full Dr Cory Senate, Dec2020
EVMS Protocols (by Dr Marik)
If you can put this in front of your governor, please do so...
I am puting this out as much as I can, my version of an echo, feel free to copy at will...
Now from the NIH, on 14 Jan, need more studies...
Going to court to get treated with ivermectin
No doubt about that. In fact, an ER doctor not too long ago was interviewed and he specifically cited the Hispanic population in CA as being spreaders. They come and go through the border, many live in multi-family homes, they are service workers, etc. I believe he said that they are by far the most hospitalized because they wait until they are extremely ill, In fear of being deported, thus working and spreading COVID.
I never thought of that.
Now, I am out creditable responses to COVID
Funny how certain American states have their own variant. The new penis chopping HHS freak can handle it though.
