Mutated COVID Virus Marketed to Justify New Lockdowns
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

> Days before Christmas, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced theres a new, mutated, up to 70% more infectious, strain of SARS- CoV-2 on the loose. As a result, London and the southeastern parts of England were placed under new, more severe, lockdown restrictions than previously voted on by Parliament
> To prevent spread of the new strain, The Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Denmark, Bulgaria and Ireland have issued travel restrictions from the U.K.
> The mutated strain, referred to in some places as B117 and in others as VUI-202012/01, began popping up in patient samples collected in September 2020 across southern England
> The virus has 23 mutations, several of which affect how the virus attaches to and infects human cells, potentially making it more virulent. There is as of yet no evidence that it causes more serious disease or increases the risk of death
> B117 is said to be up to 70% more contagious than previous variants circulating in the U.K., but British scientists and MPs question this and have demanded the data be made public so the threat can be assessed. Children are also said to be more susceptible to this new strain, although no data has been released on this either
Mounting mortality data show COVID-19 is hardly the deadly pandemic its been made out to be. But just as people were starting to wake up to this fact, the British technocracy came up with a new narrative to keep the fearmongering going.
Mere days before Christmas, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced theres a new, mutated, and far more infectious, strain of SARS-CoV-2 on the loose.1,2 The answer? Another round of even stricter stay-at-home orders, business shutdowns and travel bans, just in time for the holidays.
According to The New York Times, the U.K. restrictions may remain in effect for months. Considering these unscientific strategies didnt work the first or second time around, it strains believability to think theyll work now.
Indeed, anyone who knows anything about the Great Reset agenda can now see that the lockdowns, which destroy local economies and small businesses, have nothing to do with public health. They are mere smokescreens for the greatest transfer (if not theft) of wealth the world has ever seen.
The biggest losers are low- and middle-income earners, especially private business owners, who have been absolutely decimated while large box stores and multinational companies report record-breaking profits.
Despite the obviousness of the scheme, countries are responding to the news of the mutation with fervor. The Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Denmark, Bulgaria and Ireland all issued travel restrictions from the U.K.3,4
Whats New About This Mutated SARS-CoV-2 Strain?
The mutated strain, referred to in some places as B1175 and in others as VUI-202012/01,6 reportedly began popping up in patient samples collected in September 2020 across southern England. In all, the virus is said to have 23 new mutations, several of which affect how the virus attaches to and infects human cells, potentially making it more virulent.
British researchers claim the mutation has rapidly displaced previous variants of the virus. In mid-November 2020, 28% of COVID- 19 cases in London were attributed to B117. By December 9, 2020, that figure had risen to 62%, according to the Daily Mail.7 The following graphic from the U.K. government illustrates the spread of the virus from September through mid-December in London and the U.K as a whole.8
