Fauci warns of possible 'monster' variant of COVID if pandemic isn't stamped out with vaccinations

Dr. Anthony Fauci Tuesday warned that COVID-19 could mutate into an even more virulent “monster variant” if the pandemic is not stamped out with mass vaccination.

The pandemic expert agreed with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when she suggested that a new “monster” strain could make the delta variant look like child’s play.

“There’s always a risk of, as you get more circulation of the virus in the community, that you’ll get enough accumulation of new mutations to get a variant substantially different than the ones we’re seeing now,” Fauci said on the Morning Joe show.

Fauci said one of the most important reasons to get an overwhelming number of people vaccinated is to prevent the COVID-19 virus from mutating into new variants as it spreads.

1. It will push it over the edge with willfully unvaccinated covidiots.

I would not want to be one if this happens.

Seriously.

3. I would not want to be one of us either because

The completely vaccine resistant variant is what everyone is fearing could eventually come down the pike.

4. And the anti-vaxxers are giving it plenty of opportunities to mutate.

Thanks, fuckers.

2. This is very frightening.

I just can’t wrap my head around this. It’s a couple of shots. You don’t feel so good for a day and a half. What is the big fucking deal?

5. This potential for a more virulent "monster variant" has been the elephant in the room.

This is why experts deemed catching the spread by contract tracing etc. so important. The virus spreads like a forest fires. Small fires if not caught join together into conflagrations that cannot be directly suppressed.

7. It would make the 2020 lockdown look like child's play

Ain't nobody going anywhere except the hospital or the morgue.

10. It would probably come from kids.

Going to school, very little masking, no vaccines. Plus since kids get it less than us the variant that mutates to be more contagious and dangerous to kids may well be far more so to us.

11. This is my biggest fear

And every anti-vaxx shithead makes it more likely every time they open their plague-spewing mouths.

16. Possible, but not probable, and the vaccination rate in the US has little effect

There are billions of unvaccinated people globally.

Only if we shut down international travel would the vaccination rate in the US be a controlling factor. We seem unable or unwilling to do that.
