New Deadly COVID Strain, Really? – Dr Berg
From Jan 28th 2021 - Dr Berg pointing out some real science:
Is it possible that there’s a new strain of COVID that’s very deadly? There are three important things you need to know.
1. There is not a new strain of COVID. There is a new variant. A variant is not the same as a strain. A new strain has almost a different structure. A variant involves very minor changes. If a virus changes slightly, it doesn’t necessarily change in function. I have not seen any evidence that this new variant is more pathogenic than the original variant.
2. COVID-19 is genetically stable. COVID-19 mutates even slower than the influenza virus.
3. Why do we see spikes of infection in different countries right now? It seems the weather is a big factor. When it’s winter, and it’s colder, people cough and sneeze more, allowing the virus to spread easier. People are also getting lower amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D is intimately involved in the immune system. People who are deficient in vitamin D may be more susceptible to becoming sick.
