COVID-19 In Retreat and Multiple ‘Risk-On’ Signals

Dr. Anthony Fauci gave his first President of the Biden administration. He preliminarily confirmed what tireless Ken’s data has been showing; that the virus appears to be ‘plateauing ‘ in the United States. This confirms what tireless Ken’s data has been showing. We have also had a significant period of consecutive declines in daily cases. Unfortunately, the new mutations that have been identified in South Africa and Brazil appear to reduce the effectiveness of monoclonal antibodies, which therefore reduce the effectiveness of current vaccines. It is yet unclear if the effectiveness of the vaccines is reduced enough to render them ineffective against the strains. On the bright-side, Fauci mentioned that the new vaccine platforms can be easily adjusted to target new strains.

This press conference was cautiously optimistic. Even in the face of these mutations, the US strategy of rolling out vaccines and mitigation still makes sense. And with the executive orders by the White House, among them, expediting production and supply of COVID-19 materials plus mask mandates in Federal buildings, the focus remains on mitigation in addition to vaccination. The mutations make the vaccination program all-the-more urgent as the less the virus is reproducing, the less it can mutate further.
