Seems the South African covid variant may be resistant to vaccine and that is why the virus is  increasing rapidly.  No evidence its dangerous but more infectious  :-\

But I read today [in The Times quoting Sir John Bell] that the vaccines can easily & quickly be tweaked to allow for mutations that may affect their efficacy.

New Vaccine would take 4 - 6 weeks  if the current ones do not work on new variants.

I don't think we can say the virus is spreading more rapidly because it is resistant to the vaccine. It may prove to be but so few people have been vaccinated that I don't think we can draw any conclusions yet.

Considering that the vast majority of the population have not yet had the vaccine I think the spread is unlikely to be due to any resistance to it. Also, the over 80s tend to be the group who are more careful and mix less.

Isn't the rise at the moment due, not only to the new strain, but also to the fact people met over Christmas  - 10 days ago, so about the right timing?

I probably worded that wrongly, listening to an update at same time.  :-\

This was what I actually read - The South Africa strain of Covid is "more worrying" and there is a question mark over if current vaccines will work on it, according to Oxford University's Regius Professor of Medicine.
