9 States with the Highest Number of New COVID Variant Cases

This fall, when Americans were processing the almost inexistent transition from summer to fall, COVID-19 alarms started to arise. First, there was a steady uptick in wastewater COVID-19 levels, followed by a slight increase in hospitalizations.

Then, right in the middle of August, the World Health Organization declared it was monitoring a brand new omicron variant known as BA.2.86, also known as Pirola, created from a high number of mutations.

The sheer amount of genetic distance from its ancestors was extremely concerning to the majority of experts. The variant had no less than 30 mutations, and about the same number differentiated the highly transmissible and viral omicron variant from its predecessors.

Moreover, experts feared the worst was yet to come. As it turns out, Pirola is more transmissible and less susceptible to vaccine-induced protection than other variants circulating over the past year and a half.

Over the last couple of weeks, plenty of laboratory studies led to a positive relief: on a cellular level, Pirola isn’t as alarming. This means that the chances of this variant leading to a massive room-flooding of COVID-19 are quite small.

Other, less mutated omicron variants are still dominant strains, and it seems very unlikely for Pirola to wreak major havoc anytime soon.

Also, there’s positive news: scientists are doing enough sequencing to detect any new variants before they’re widespread. But this shouldn’t lead you to believe that you don’t need to get vaccinated anymore.

Even if there’s no scary new variant on the horizon, COVID-19 transmission is still on the uptick, and along with it, a very unwelcome sense of familiarity.

If you’re wondering what the current state of COVID-19 is today, we’re going to get into that immediately. Here’s a closer look at the latest COVID-19 variant and the COVID-19 hospitalization situation, but also as to what COVID-19 transmission trends over time.

  1. I find it hard to understand those who choose to believe that the vaccine will do harm, and believe all the false theories posted by ignorant people.

    1. One thing you can’t believe is everything the so called experts say, about almost anything concerning peoples health, since when do the medical industry want people to be totally healthy(?) That means they would not make much money off of your health misfortunes, know that they been experimenting with Covid since 1931, concerning germ-warfare, and up until 2020, they finally got the right variant introduce to all of humanity, trying to so called reduce the human population, and they are still trying new options with the same virus RNA, because there are as many as 15,000 of them to experiment with. Also know that every people in the world don’t need to take the vaccine shot only certain people need to, they Stated this back in 2020, but decided to say everyone should take it knowing people will get sick and die from it. Please do your research.

    3. You find it hard to believe because you are still asleep. There is SIGNIFICANT evidence from highly reputable sources. Better not hit snooze again, the alarm is sounding.

  2. I have a serious question no one will answer, why is it that my backside being double masked doesn’t work while expelling gas, but a single mask on a person’s face works every time to keep the molecular viruses out…?

  3. Please give me a break you guys are bought and paided for comparison covid with Republicans and Democrat.. We want our country back!

  4. Please, don’t make Covid a political issue. Not Everything is a political issue. Really! Be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day and remember our Forefathers who made this day possible. God bless America! 🦃 🇺🇸

  5. This is my 3rd time that I have incurred illness from covid. Covid is here to stay. Please, everyone In regards to staying virus free proceed with caution and listen to the experts.

    1. So why are the experts saying that people who got the vaccines are dying at alarming rates and people who didn’t get the vaccines are doing just fine????? Fact 68% in America 🇺🇸 did NOT get these killing vaccines!!!

    1. They say it’s safe but they also said the vaccines were safe so they should not be trusted. It’s to much on your immune system so why take the chance. They only care about the $.

  6. It seems to me that with the locations given being border crossings and surrounding states that the cause being illegal immigrants holds a lot more water than trying to imply it’s politically based.
    Makes a thinking person wonder what has really happened to the USofA when everyone starts believing every political lie they are told. Remember for a moment that our own Supremes Court (pun intended) ruled that because it is in the nature of a politician to lie they cannot be held accountable for any campaign lies they tell the people… What’s to stop them from taking it a step farther and lying about the other party?? THINK people…USE your brains…DO NOT believe everything you are told just because it is YOUR party telling it….
