Hello

According to Published reports (some awaiting Review) and reported in the UK newspapers:-

The current SARS virus that causes Covid-19 has a handful of Variants / Strains.

Variants of a virus/disease might be one of the reasons for different outcomes.

Some Covid-19 virus variants have an (S) protein change to the Spike (D614G) and might be one of the reasons why we are now seeing higher Infection Rates in Britain and Europe currently.

See Pie Chart here:-

 I listened to an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci on "The World Tonight", BBC Radio 4 last night. Press and other media over the past 2 days have interviews with him.

The face mask debate is an ongoing issue.

I live in Victoria Australia and at the beginning of August, 700 cases were recorded in one day and escalation was expected and feared by the State Premier and advisors.

Within days face masks were made compulsory outdoors and at indoor public places and just after that, shields were disallowed as an alternative.  We were told this measure was based on the "best advice currently available"

 At almost the same time a very tough lockdown was imposed and we are all familiar with what that looks like and how very hard it is. It had varying degrees of restriction depending on where in the state you live, but was firmly enforced.

The day before yesterday the lockdown ended with 0 and 1 and 2 new cases daily.

We are required still to wear  masks outdoors and pretty much everybody does.

Now I am not qualified to say how much of the success story is attributable to the masks. Would we have the same result  with lockdown and no masks?

Don't know. I just put it forward for your consideration.
