  1. COVID-20A.EU1 is the virus that affects around 80% of Spain currently. It would explain the higher infection rate here and throughout Europe, especially over the summer period when lockdowns were eased (big mistake). Lockdowns will slow the virus a bit, but alas the virus really beat us on day #1. In the UK, when Boris Johnson first met with SAGE, you can bet your money that they told him that there was no way to beat the virus and that it had to take its course. Herd immunity was therefore always part of the governments plan, albeit in the sense that they could not defeat the virus. Vaccines may help but mutation is the biggest issue. If COVID mutates as much as HIV then the world is at massive risk. So far, the slow mutation of COVID has been its weakest aspect. Fingers crossed.
