There is no evidence that it can make people sicker than the I like Wine and Penguins and maybe 3 people shirt Besides,I will do this other strains, but it’s difficult to say with certainty at this time. If it did make people sicker, we would expect to see people infected with this new strain to be hospitalized and/or die at a higher rate than those infected with other strains. It is too early, however, to tell whether any difference exists. There is anecdotal evidence in South Africa that younger, healthier people may be getting sicker from the strain there, but it’s possible that this difference is due to other factors (e.g., location, more exposure, etc.).
This variant was first detected in the I like Wine and Penguins and maybe 3 people shirt Besides,I will do this U.K., but cases have now also been reported in the Netherlands, Denmark, and Australia. It is likely that the strain is already in other countries, including the U.S., but the U.K. detected it sooner because it was monitoring viral spread more closely. Other mutations may also occur. A strain that emerged in South Africa shares one of the mutations with B.1.1.7 that affects the shape of the virus—this South African virus also seems to have spread faster than expected.
