When I am writing this post, there are very said facts about Covid 19 in the world and other countries. 93.8 million cases, and 2.01 million deaths in the world


Top 5 countries with cases and deaths (from several sources as of January 16, 2021) are following:

- 23.6 million cases, and 393,000 deaths in the USA

- 10.5 million cases, and 152,000 deaths in India

- 8.39 million cases, and 208,000 deaths in Brazil

- 3.84 million cases, and 63,558 deaths in Russia

- 3.32 million cases, and 87,295 deaths in UK


However, the threaten of new variant of Covid 19 virus creates the condition even worst while inoculation of vaccines just start in many places.


First, the UK’s variant, then South Africa, and lately was from Japan. The question then :


How dangerous those new variants?

What we know about UK and South Africa Covid 19 variants until now:

- much more dangerous than original strains

- more transmissible

- mutations occurred to “spike protein”


What we know about Japan Covid 19 variants until today:

- Japan strain comes from Brazil

- higher infectiousness

- mutations not only to spike protein, but also on the variant ability to evade of our immune system memory.


Good news that the Biontech-Pfizer vaccine ables to fight effectively the UK and South Africa Covid 19 (Sars Cov 2) variants.


However, studies are underway to observe whether any vaccines will work to fight virus variants in Japan.


If not, we might need to upgrade our current vaccines. Hope, we will know soon.

  11. This whole situation is so unsettling. It seems to be getting worst instead of better. Hopefully, the current vaccines will be able to handle what's on the horizon. Stay safe!
