A recent research has discovered AND predicted a third wave of Covid will strike this summer and this time the bad boy is not from China but from the tropical hotspot of Brazil.
In another fearmongering tactic at the point the British nation look close to having their ‘freedoms’ back, the timing of this new monster under the bed couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Express writes: Brazil Covid variant threats have continued to surge after a researcher warned of a new “super virus” that could be resistant to all available vaccines.
Lucas Ferrant, a biologist at the National Institute for Amazon Research (INPA) in Manaus in the Amazon region, had previously predicted the devastating second wave in the Brazilian city in August 2020. But speaking to German news website Spiegel, he has predicted Brazil will experience a third wave of the Covid variant around June, and even earlier in some of the other cities in the country, warning this outbreak “has the potential to become even more deadly”.

The BBC writes: Two more cases of a Covid variant first identified in Brazil have been found in the UK, bringing the total number to 12.
Both – one in the West Midlands and one in Haringey, London – were linked with international travel to Brazil.
Some variants, like this one, appear to be more contagious and there are concerns current vaccines may not work as well. Full Article >>>
The Vox Post says:
The timing of this new variant comes in the wake of Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon announcing their new pathway out of lockdown.
How convenient and just when the general public get geared up to enjoy their pint, their cinemas, and their social gatherings; a new strain — that is apparently resistant to the vaccines — lurks in the shadows waiting to pounce.
Will this new third wave cause another lockdown? It depends if the pharmaceutical companies have met their masters’ vaccine-for-all targets, but for what it’s worth, the Vox Post believes this will be the excuse they will need to lock us down again.
