Urgent! Another new coronal variant virus is rampant and can escape immune protection? More than 40 countries!

                                                   be vigilant! Another novel coronavirus variant strain is spreading in the United States.

According to the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and prevention, a new coronal variant virus, Mu strain, has been detected in 49 states in the United States, spreading much faster than expected by infectious disease experts.

According to the statement of the local public health department, the Mu variant strain is more infectious and has the potential to escape the protection of some antibodies.

Globally, Mu mutant strain has spread to more than 40 countries or become resistant to vaccine.

Among the confirmed patients related to Mu variant virus found in Hong Kong and Taiwan, China, two doses of biotech novel coronavirus vaccine have been vaccinated.

Who warned that the mutation of Mu showed that it could escape the immune protection provided by natural infection or vaccination.

The spread of Mu mutant strain may make the epidemic situation in the United States more complex.

Over the past week, the United States has added an average of more than 161000 new cases and 1560 new deaths every day.

Many American medical systems are under heavy pressure.

What is even more worrying is that the number of children in the United States is still rising.

Up to now, more than 5 million children in the United States have been infected with the novel coronavirus virus, accounting for 15.1% of the total number of children.

The novel coronavirused outbreak continues to cast a shadow over the US economic recovery.

First, a dismal employment data triggered market pessimism; In addition, the U.S.

offline consumption data fell sharply, and the University of Michigan consumer confidence index in August also fell to the lowest level in 10 years, which worried Wall Street organizations and became pessimistic.

Another mutant virus is raging all over the United States.

One wave is not calm and another wave is rising.

While the delta mutant virus is still raging, another mutant virus is also spreading rapidly.

According to the latest data, the new coronal variant virus Mu strain has been detected in 49 states of the United States.

Dr.

Anthony fouch, an infectious disease expert, said that the new coronal variant virus Mu may be able to escape the protection of some antibodies.

At present, the transmission rate of Mu mutant strain in the United States is much faster than expected by infectious disease experts.

The mutant virus has multiple mutations, and scientists worry that it may be completely resistant to the first generation vaccine.

“The Mu variant is more infectious and has the potential to escape some antibody protection.

However, more research is needed to determine whether the Mu variant is more infectious, more lethal or more resistant to vaccines and treatment than other variants,” a statement from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health said, The cases infected with Mu variant virus in the United States account for less than 1% of the current novel coronavirus cases, but it has stronger infectivity and drug resistance, which means that it may replace delta variant virus.

Especially with the introduction of the next round of vaccine booster needle, the population will establish a certain immunity to delta variant virus.

At present, California has the largest number of cases infected with Mu variant strain, and at least 384 cases have been reported.

As of last Friday, 167 cases have been confirmed to be infected with Mu variant strain in Los Angeles, the largest city in California, most of which were found in July.

Globally, Mu mutant strain has spread to more than 40 countries or become resistant to vaccine.

Local time September 2nd, the Ministry of health of Columbia confirmed that COVID-19 variant strain “Mu” (B.1.621) was a local variant strain found in the country.

The earliest infected person can be traced back to January of this year.

The infection caused by the variant strain now accounts for 39% of the total number of confirmed cases in Columbia.

In Ecuador, this figure has also exceeded double digits, reaching 13%, and continues to rise.

Worryingly, the latest monitoring data show that the “Mu” mutant strain has a series of mutations, indicating that it has the potential characteristics of immune escape (vaccine resistance).

Novel coronavirus pneumonia cases were found in China’s Hongkong Province as of September 3rd, including 3 variants related to Mu, 2 of which were imported from Columbia and one from the United States.

Among them, the cases imported from the United States involve patients who have been vaccinated with two doses of biotech novel coronavirus vaccine.

In addition, local officials in Taiwan, China pointed out on September 2 that a local case of Mu variant virus infection was found.

The patient returned to Taiwan from the United States and has also been vaccinated with two doses of fubitai vaccine.

Liang Zichao, a specialist in respiratory medicine in Hong Kong, believes that there is no evidence that the Mu variant virus has stronger survivability, will not replace the delta variant virus for the time being, and its lethality is not necessarily stronger than the delta variant.

However, it is necessary to observe whether this new variant virus will still appear in places with high vaccination of novel coronavirus vaccine.

Liang Zichao pointed out that if this happens, it shows that the virus has strong immune escape ability, and the situation is very dangerous.

In addition, Maria van kokhoff, who’s novel coronavirus technical director, warned that the who has added the Mu variant strain to its list of variants of concern.

The Mu variant shows that it can escape the immune protection provided by natural infection or vaccination.

More than 5 million of American children are infected with COVID-19, although the number of new cases in the United States has eased recently compared with the peak period, but still continues to exceed 100 thousand cases / day.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia was diagnosed in 40238083 cases and died in 650345 cases at 6 p.m.

Eastern time in September 7, 2021, according to data released by Johns Hopkins University.

In the past week, the average number of new cases per day in the United States exceeded 161000, the number of new deaths reached 1560, and the average number of hospitalizations per day exceeded 102000, only slightly lower than the peak in the winter of 2020.

The number of deaths per day exceeds 1000, putting heavy pressure on many American medical systems.

The Idaho Health Department announced on September 7 that the “crisis care standard” was launched in the hospital to allocate medical resources quantitatively and only limited resources to patients who have the chance to survive.

Under this standard, the 10 hospital systems in the northern part of the state only leave the intensive care unit to “patients who are most likely to survive”, and only provide “comfortable care” to those “patients who are in critical condition but have little hope of survival”.

What is more worrying is that the number of child cases in the United States is still rising.

A novel coronavirus pneumonia case has been reported in the United States in the past week, according to the latest report of the American Academy of Pediatrics and children’s hospital.

The number of children infected with the disease is the largest in the past week, accounting for 26.8% of all confirmed cases.

Up to now, more than 5 million children in the United States have been infected with COVID-19, accounting for 15.1% of the total number of infections.

The CDC data show that the rate of hospitalization for 0-17 year old children due to the novel coronavirus epidemic has increased 5 times from late June to mid August.

For the surge in the number of children’s cases, medical experts believe that millions of American students returned to school in the school season in September, and the resumption of offline teaching is the main reason.

Fudge, director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases, said on the same day that if you want to protect children, especially those who are still unable to be vaccinated, you should require teachers and school staff in contact with them to be vaccinated.

At present, among the three novel coronavirus vaccines approved by the United States, only Pfizer vaccine can be used for people aged 12 to 18, and Modena and Johnson & Johnson vaccine can only be used for people aged 18 and over.

For children under the age of 12, no vaccine has been approved..
