Beyond Delta: Covid Has Epsilon, Lambda, and Iota Variants Already

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m having a 2-day fatigue flare… no summer remission yet!

Still, I’ve managed to keep an eye on news of interest and I thought it was good to send a “head’s up” to all my peeps out there (all 5 of you– you know who you are!)

We all know that versions of Covid went around the world. The first 2 were designated “Alpha” and “Beta” for obvious reasons and all vaccines out in the U.S. are effective against those as well as the now dominant “Delta” variant, which is even more contagious than previous strains. This is impressive, given that A and B versions of Covid are already more contagious than the common cold!

Going through the Greek alphabet, other variants of Covid have been identified and named accordingly. A list may be found here:

Of all the new variants, the one most concerning is the Lambda strain, which has predominated Peru and other parts of South America since January. The first Lambda variant has been identified in an American in Texas. Lambda appears to be both more contagious, more resistant to vaccines out thus far, AND more deadly, but they’re still studying it to get the numbers. Some estimates say the mortality rate could be as high as 10%, which is easily triple the death rate for most strains of Covid. Most reports deny they have the data to confirm this finding.

I’m keeping an eye on this. It appears that having Covid before or a vaccine WILL grant some protection, the question is, “How well?” since Lambda has mutated to evade our immune systems in several areas of the protein coating.

I’ll keep an eye on this and report as I go. Most of the Covid variants are fairly neutral and the vaccines we have seem to work on most of them quite well. Lambda might be a game-changer, but we’ll see.
