On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it is monitoring a new COVID-19 variant known as “XBB,” which is responsible for an estimated 3.1% of all new infections in the United States, according to Yahoo News.
Back in October, health officials in the US said they were tracking a new Covid strain that is being called the “most vaccine-resistant ever” after causing a surge in cases in Singapore.
The recent outbreak of infections in Singapore has been traced to XBB, a “recombinant” of the Omicron subvariants BA.2.10.1 and BA.2.75.
“Preliminary research suggests the Omicron subvariant XBB might carry a higher infection risk and be more resistant to neutralizing antibodies from booster vaccine doses and antibody drugs, but more studies are needed, according to Verywell Health.
According to the latest weekly estimates from the CDC, the Northeast is where the strain has spread the farthest. In this week’s CDC’s “Nowcast,” over 5% of infections in the areas spanning New Jersey through Maine are related to XBB.
Per the new @CDCgov "Nowcast" published today
XBB is now being tracked in U.S. variant estimates, at 3.1% of new COVID cases nationwide
BQ.1 (27.9%) and BQ.1.1 (29.4%) together now make up nearly 6 in 10 new infectionshttps://t.co/zH1u8A092J https://t.co/8xVVTKA1Fm pic.twitter.com/L8ri90Od59

XBB inherited 5’ part of genome from BJ.1 & 3’ end of genome from BA.2.75, with single breakpoint within RBD of Spike; Spike breakpoint allows it to possess potent antigenic RBD mutations from both BJ.1 & BA.2.75,one of most potent combinations of antigenic RBD mutation; pic.twitter.com/XA1upRg6te

Yahoo News reported:
If the gov’t is trying to say, “our vaccines don’t work,” this was perfect.
Now try creating a traditional vaccine, one out of killed virus incubated in chicken eggs.
Oh, you want chickens in short supply because, “green?”
Get over it.
Meanwhile, masks don’t work so you’re better off using a nasal spray before and after going among people.
Betadine’s or Xclear work well.
Masks and vaccines worked well, greatly reducing odds of hospitalization and death at the height of the pandemic. Vaccine efficacy has now dropped off to around 36 percent. If you’re at high risk for serious COVID complications, 36 percent-effective protection lasting through the winter months is a good bet. When I asked their advice, that’s what both of my doctors told me.
Bullshit motherfucker. fauci murdered millions
Stupidity loved vulgarity, and gave birth to Trump’s MAGA scam.
The scam where he’s still popular and filling stadiums…running again against a tyrannical regime we knew was installed?
Funny you’d call the dream of our Founding Fathers a “scam.”
We just call it freedom.
No more mRNA treatments. NO MORE.
Nick Fuentes and Kanye West as dinner guests… The man is a nincompoop.
Why? is having dinner being a nincompoop?
And he’s a competent executive who started to restore the nation to prosperity…and is now the FOREVER 45th President of the United States.
Will probably be the 47th…or 46th, if we finally charge Biden and take the title he didn’t win in the rigged election of 2020.
Masks were worthless and the vaccines killed plenty of people.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans are dead because the government forced weak, untested treatments (lining the pockets of pharma in the process) while withholding safe, proven-effective antivirals.
All Americans, and citizens around the world, are hearing the call to say “no” to the vaccine, and to reject any government who tries to force it.
No one trusts the fda
Both? I am sorry to hear that 2 medical experts cant make you well. Did they advise you of the side effects of the bioweapon?
That wearing a mask for more than 10 minutes fills it with deadly bacteria that can give you lung ailments?
Do read the side of a box of masks where it says it is an earloop device and cannot protect you from anything. Disposal of these germ ridden masks is not done properly as other medical waste.
Fauchi is a serial Murderer, AZT killed many.
“That wearing a mask for more than 10 minutes fills it with deadly bacteria that can give you lung ailments?”
Is that why surgeons, O.R. nurses, and the women who perform manicures have always died by the tens of thousands each year?!
Fauchi wrote an entire paper on it.
He is your expert, do you have a science department take a culture of any mask worn for an excessive time, see what you get.
Actually, these mRNA shots (which are NOT vaccines) are causing the covid virus to MUTATE!
Masks worked so well that they made absolutely no difference in reducing the spread of the virus.
Masks DON’T stop the spread of Covid: Top experts criticise ‘troubling lack of evidence’ | Daily Mail Online
But, idiot Biden, the biggest moron this nation has ever had, says masks works, so shouldn’t we follow the advice of the guy that suggests shooting a shotgun in the air for self defense?
The WEF has been using the language “when the next pandemic comes” because they are going to release another pandemic.
Just like they did in 2019.
Resistant to a “vaccine” that ever worked.
People here tried to demonize ivermectin, the 2nd most used medication only after aspirin.
In Africa ivermectin is used by almost everyone all the time because of the risk of parasitic infections.
Covid never really took off there.
Now the gov’t here is trying to pretend they never demonized ivermectin here.
But my doctor was threatened that she’d lose her practice (if she recommended ivermectin) based on the gov’t telling my provider to do just that.
Whose laptop does she work on?
Thanks that made me laugh.
Wow! The national expert on infectious diseases predicts that an infectious disease outbreak will happen! What are the chances?!
Perhaps the reason we have a national center for infectious diseases is because there’s *always* another infectious disease outbreak right around the corner. That fact would make this tweet not very prescient at all.
Maybe when you are MAKING infectious, deadly diseases, you have a little more insight into the possibility of a world-wide outbreak.
And probably the least virulent
Im sure you did not see the senate hearings.
That piece of fiction was not from the Senate hearings. The photo was, possibly.
You confirm you never watched the senate hearings.
Im sure you never checked out the link provided.
Please share a video of the Senate testimony where that story was entered into evidence, instead of trying to pass off a 4chan screenshot as proof of anything.
look it up your self lazy retard
“look it up your self lazy retard”
It doesn’t exist. You’re trying to pass off a 4chan post as Senate testimony.
You havent looked lazy retard
If it existed, you’d post a link.
So you admit you are unable to search the internet, you are a retard.
As the lawyers say, “If the law is against you, pound the facts. If the facts are against you, pound the law. If both the facts and the law are against you, pound the table and shout like hell.”
You are unable to prove your (frankly insane) assertion, so now you’re pounding the table and shouting, trying to turn your screwup into something I did wrong.
If you had any actual proof, you’d post it, because you’re looking like a fool right now.
Links on the internet are not truth.
They are often the opposite.
“They are often the opposite.”
Like the one kitt posted in her screenshot.
