Europe staggers as infectious variants power coronavirus surge

The virus swept through a nursery school and an adjacent elementary school in the Milan suburb of Bollate with amazing speed. In a matter of just days, 45 children and 14 staff members had tested positive. 

Genetic analysis confirmed what officials already suspected: The highly contagious coronavirus variant first identified in England was racing through the community, a densely packed city of nearly 40,000 with a chemical plant and a Pirelli bicycle tire factory a 15-minute drive from the heart of Milan. 

"This demonstrates that the virus has a sort of intelligence. ... We can put up all the barriers in the world and imagine that they work, but in the end, it adapts and penetrates them,'' lamented Bollate Mayor Francesco Vassallo. 

... Europe recorded 1 million new COVID-19 cases last week, an increase of 9 percent from the previous week and a reversal that ended a six-week decline in new infections, WHO said Thursday.

Everywhere the variants were found, the case rate plummeted. Everywhere.  Variants are actually a good thing as 99% of the time they’re weaker than the previous strain.

Everywhere. Variants are good. MC is a faggot 

there’s not one single scientific test or study  that says the variants are stronger or more contagious. Not one. Why? Because it’s basically impossible to test in a controlled setting.

The stupid can't process facts.  Their feelings always get in the way.

Just a reminder here’s Michigan one of the democrat run shit holes. Same number of residents as Sweden. Michigan has had more deaths and roughly the same number of cases. Yet Michigan locked down and instituted masks in July while Sweden did zero
