    ' Patients who contracted it complain of fatigue, head and body aches and occasional sore throats and coughs, said Angelique Coetzee, who is also chairwoman of the South African Medical Association. Delta infections, by comparison, caused elevated pulse rates, resulted in low oxygen levels and a loss of smell and taste, she said.


    “I said these different symptoms can’t be delta, they are very similar to beta or it must be a new strain,” she said in an interview on Monday. “I don’t think it will blow over but I think it will be a mild disease hopefully. For now we are confident we can handle it.” '

    oh no! we can't publicize good news about covid!

    we have to maintain the cycle. Setup for the next booster is in progress. Mandated cv vaxes for everyone on the horizon.

    this is for everyone's safety.

    repeat as necessary until programming ... ah ... I mean understanding is complete.

    They’ve known about O since Jan 2021

    there were papers written about it back then

    I think it was also called the African Variant

    heard this am, there will be 1,000s of variants

    Big pharma is SO good, they manufactured a vaccine even before it was a ‘thing’……

    The poster may be meaning Beta. There have been several variants that have arisen but never gained traction enough to make a splash in the history of COVID-19, other than some mentions in various news reports.
