WHO Urgent Meeting Over New COVID Variant

The COVID-19 virus has mutated again, and it is creating a bit of a panic around the globe.

The World Health Organization announced an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss a variant detected in South Africa.

The new variant appears to be mutating significantly, which could impact the infectiousness of the virus.

Hype or Danger?

Since the initial wave of infections, people have proven to be fairly resilient against the virus.

The virus has mutated numerous types already, with the Delta variant being the latest here in the states that has caused significant concern.

Even so, after a small initial spike, even that has leveled off somewhat.

The new variant from South Africa is called the B.1.1.529 variant.

Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s technical lead on COVID-19, stated, “We don’t know very much about this yet. What we do know is that this variant has a large number of mutations.

“And the concern is that when you have so many mutations, it can have an impact on how the virus behaves.”

Some countries are already locking down travel restrictions for South Africa.

The EU, UK, and Israel have all announced air travel restrictions.

Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated, “We are currently on the verge of a state of emergency.

“Our main principle is to act fast, strong and now.”

The Japanese have also put some restrictions in place, now requiring Japanese nationals traveling from Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa and Lesotho to quarantine at government-dedicated accommodation for 10 days and do a COVID test on Day 3, Day 6, and Day 10.

Some American lawmakers are also calling for a lockdown on travel from South Africa before it has a chance to even get here.

We likely will not have any real science on the new variant for weeks while researchers conduct lab tests.

The WHO has also asked governments not to have a “knee jerk” reaction to the new variant, but as we have already mentioned, many countries are using an abundance of caution rather than allowing another huge wave of infections.

      1. The failed Covid vaccines that have proved to have little to no effect in halting the spread of Covid… these vaccines that have a horrible safety program and have caused thousands of deaths and 10’s of thousands of serious and long lasting side effects… these vaccines that have virtually no effect on mutations especially when compared to attained immunity… these vaccines that are being forced on citizens and not on criminal foriegn nationals… these vaccines being forced on individuals under 65 years of age by a totalitarian government when science and experience prove that Covid poses less of a threat to life than the annual flu… these vaccines that the totalitarian government now wants to force on children 4 years old and younger in spite of the fact that children of these ages are 5 or more times kiss likely to get seriously illbor die from Covid than the seasonal flu and that these vaccines that gave not had even one study of their efficacy and safety in children with their ne formula that includes two ingredients not included in the adult vaccines… andcthese vaccines that we now know were approved with fraudulent information that was sent to the FDA… THESE VACCINES THAT BIDEN HAS COMMITTED TREASON FOR HIS TELLING BUSINESSES TO ENFORCE HIS MANDATES IN SPITE OF THE COURTS STAY ON THE MANDATES ENFORCEMENT. Those failed vaccines should be pulled off the market rather than there be even a thought of expanding their usage.

  1. Another lie to further control people. If this is true SHUT OUR BORDERS DOWN!! NOONE IN OR OUT!! Oh yeah, the WHO is the most trusted name in NOTHING!!

    1. 100% agree with your response. They are starting thier world order. And its not a good thing. I think world leaders turned this loose on us on purpose. I will bet my bottom dollar the dems n fauci were in on it.

  2. Just another attempt at one world order. Keeping the fear going. More people have died from vaccines than covid. Called population control. Its why they started with elderly and worked their way down to toddlers. Wait and see…..

  3. I wonder if those that they are testing positive with the “new” variant were vaccinated or not? That is the major question. Is the shot causing the mutations of this man made virus? Can we trust the WHO or any government at this point, to tell us the truth?

    1. Thinking of the common flu, don’t we get different strains each year? What is the difference????

    2. From what I have read the SHOTS now will have no effect on this next virus! So if you have had the Covid shots, they are NO COUNT to this next virus! These shots now are KILLING ALL AGES! THAT IS WHY ALL THE ALIENS DO NOT HAVE TO BE TESTED, WEAR A MASK OR TAKE THE SHOTS! BIDEN JUST WANTS TO KILL ALL AMERICANS! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  4. Don’t you find it unusual every time it looks like things are getting back to some sense of normal we have another virus. I wonder if bill Gates has been in Africa recently. Don’t trust any of them.

  5. Who is a liar , Dont Believe thier fake, false, conjoured up reports
    they lie for agenda
    Facts not Data fixed by the elite to sell agendas
    every time you watch , you get more lys, and deception
    Gates , Fauci , Biden Should be in prison ,

    Dont Follow Mainstreem meadia

  6. More lies.I wonder how many crazies will fall for this .However maybe a good look into the vaccine should be investigated by WHO instead of trying to shut the world down. We are fed up with the lying .We are also praying .A great exposure is coming to all these liars

  7. Apparently the “MANDATED “death jabs” and the NUMEROUS “boosters” being forced on the gullible, brainwashed LEGAL CITIZENS, are not working fast enough for the deep-state communists of the “new world order, “great reset elites” to kill of that “excess population”, so onto the next “variant”. Just step up and keep getting those “JABS” and “boosters”, you frightened SHEEP, the “new world order” “great reset”, “elites” thank you for your “participation”, and the sacrifice of your LIVES as well as the lives of your Elderly parents, and CHILDREN, to make the world a safer place for ALL those INVADING illegal aliens, that are going to be the next group of CONTROLLED COMMUNIST SLAVES, that will step in, take your jobs and homes, after ALL OF YOU Finally succumb to the “Mandated” “control-us-virus “DEATH JABS”.

  8. This is going to go on forever because this radical government wants to try and keep us under their control forever. I will never end until we get rid of these SATANIC CULT worshipers in our government.

  9. Fjb! His administration can’t even control the souther border. Why shut down south Africa travelers, just let the law breaking illegals from all the other countries keep coming in untested for covid and not required to get the jab. I think illegals are doing a great job of keeping this “pandemic ” alive and kicking. Fjb


  11. If you have listened to the virarologists at all you will know that as a virus mutates it becomes less effective, less contagious and less deadly. This is simply another scare tactic by WHO and the powers that be in governments. They know we are on to their little game and are losing control. So wa-la! yet another more deadly strain. DON”T BE FOOLED!!!

  12. LMAO ..My question is why anyone is still listening to the W.H.O. they have been proven liars and are 100%against 🇺🇸

Biden’s net approval rating – the gap between those who approve and disapprove – is at a new record low of -17.3%.

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.
