It is time for us to build the “Great Wall of Common Sense” in response to what has likely been a pandemic caused by a Chinese-bioengineered virus.
A couple of days ago, I noted we do not need to panic over the coronavirus Delta variant the press has featured lately.
While Americans resume a more normal life in a post-COVID world, the elite media cannot seem to return to more regular news coverage. Reporters are now grabbing onto stories about the “Lambda variant.”
Scientists fear that a highly contagious new COVID-19 variant that is ravaging Peru may be resistant to vaccines.
The Lambda mutation, or C.37, appears to have emerged in Peru last August — and is now being blamed for the country having the highest pandemic death rate in the world.
The concerning strain has since spread to around 30 countries, mostly in Latin America — but also as far as the UK, which has recorded at least eight cases, according to government figures.
There are no known cases of the Lambda strain in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In Peru, Lambda has accounted for 81 percent of new infections tested for variants since April, according to the World Health Organization.
Not only is the press stoking fears about the virus, but it is also implying that we will face further restrictions as we slowly return to normal.
The Lambda strain has puzzled World Health Organisation scientists after it spread to nearly 30 countries in the last four weeks. The mutation was originally discovered in Peru and is related to 81 per cent of the country’s cases since April.
Peru currently has the highest mortality rate of anywhere in the world.
It is a worrying sign for the UK which has recently relaxed Covid-19 restrictions after 37 million people received at least one dose of a vaccine.
The country had returned to normality in recent weeks with pubs flooded by revellers enjoying their country’s recent success at Euro 2020.
However, these civil liberties could change if the highly transmissible Lambda strain spreads across the community.
Here might be an excellent place to explain the difference between a strain and a variant regarding viruses. Coronaviruses, such as SARS-CoV-2, replicate through RNA duplication. Errors in the replication produce imperfect copies of the original virus.
The viruses with these mutations are called variants.
If the mutations are significant enough, changes in the physical properties can occur, changing the virus’s behavior. The copies with such effective modifications are referred to as strains of the flu.
The mRNA vaccines work because scientists design them to respond to the most significant physical properly of the coronavirus: The spiked proteins intended to stick to human respiratory system cells. Therefore, I am skeptical of the current reports, mainly because the media has been on a rampage about “dangerous variants resistant to vaccines” since the vaccines first came out.
I’m watching the lambda variant emerge from South America, good news is that mRNA vaccines still look good, but a reminder we must accelerate vaccinating the Southern Hemisphere, Latin America, Africa, SE Asia ASAP, we’re playing with fire https://t.co/gbyKups46D

It appears that I am not the only one who is skeptical.
The Lambda variant – Just in time to keep lockdown going on 19th July.
Get it yet?https://t.co/gj0Wmz8b4X

Lambda variant has been known since December last year. It was found in Peru.
It remains a variant of interest (VOI) and NOT variant of concern (VOC) as it doesn’t meet the WHO criteria to be of global public health significance yet. https://t.co/GKJVrxksLK

Laughably, the Chinese are talking about building a “Great Wall of Immunity.”
China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged the international community on Saturday to build a “Great Wall of Immunity” to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We should face the imminent challenges together,” Wang, who is also a member of the State Council, or cabinet, told the 9th World Peace Forum held at Tsinghua University in the Chinese capital.
“The most urgent priority is to expedite the construction of the ‘Great Wall of Immunity’ to fend off the virus, surpass political discrimination and carry out international anti-pandemic cooperation.”
