It was only a matter of time before the first mentions on "mutation" were mentioned.
I have just seen a article by experts stating that covid is now mutating to get past masks!!!!! and become more contagious.
Come on! how can a virus mutate to bypass masks! Is this not just another foolish scare tactic story. If its true sod it, whats the point wearing the masks.
Looks like panic buying is on again since the new government restrictions.

The virus is constantly mutating in a multitude of different ways. Some will help it spread, some won't. The successful mutations will continue to evolve, the unsuccessful ones will die out. That's what evolution and survival of the fittest is about.

Not covid but mutation related, I heard reptiles mutated into flying thingies, then some mutated to swim instead of fly, ain't nature wonderful. Masks, viruses, beyond me sorry.

someone asked did I remember the Flu epidemic of 1968? ….. I replied no ...I was told it killed 60K people in the UK...…. I was too busy chasing girls, listening to Jimi Hendrix and trying out beer.

I remember the Asian Flu epidemic in the late 50s. I don't know how many people that killed but it had the RAF station that I was on just about closed down. I must google that.
I see that 14,000 people died of it. I know that I was in hospital on camp for a week
That was another pandemic

In 69/70 we had the "Hong Kong flu " We had it in the family and being Dairy farmers at the time one of us had to milk the cows. A nasty flu that did for a million or more worldwide.

Just saw a very sad story on Gogglebox. A chap in his eighties-who I think might have been a modeller, as he was looking at some plans and referred to model parts - living alone and his home was in a bit of a state, damp, in need of sorting out. So social services organised the refurb, during which time he was moved into a care home, with the intention of returning home when the work was finished. Unfortunately he had a fall, whilst on care, was taken into hospital, contracted Covid somewhere along the way and died.
Couldn't help thinking that if they had just left him be he'd still be alive today. Very sad.
