Very bad! Novel Coronavirus mutation sparks panic and urgent injunction issued by many countries…

The variant, codename VUI-202012/01, is said to be 70 per cent more transmissible than the original strain.

Two of the worst pieces of news have arrived, in this winter hour.

First bad news, London is closed.

London has a population of about nine million, but this time it’s not just London. It’s the southeast, where London is located, which has a population of 16 million.

In a country with a population of about 66 million, one in four Britons is locked down.

Look at the Map of the British, the fourth type of area, is the closed city area, red is particularly dazzling.

Because in this area, novel Coronavirus is mutating.
The variant, codename VUI-202012/01, is said to be 70 per cent more transmissible than the original strain.

More breathlessly, only 28% of people diagnosed in London last month were infected with the virus;
But now that number has risen by 62%.

“The virus is rampant, spreading faster and will inevitably lead to a surge in hospital admissions,” warned The UK government’s chief scientific adviser, Simon Wallis.

The British government had to act urgently, even if it was Christmas, this year.

All previous Christmas arrangements have been cancelled. New rules:

Travel is prohibited if not necessary;
Canceling the original Christmas social bubble;
Must stay at home, and can only go out for legitimate reasons such as work or education;
To prohibit people from entering or leaving the level 4 lockdown area unless necessary reasons are given;
Not allowed to spend the night outside their own homes;
All non-essential shops, gyms and barbershops are closed;
If the door, only one to one outdoor meet;
International travel is prohibited except for work reasons;
People from different families are prohibited from gathering indoors.

This would be, if not mistaken, the largest lockdown in the world today.

This is the first bad news, the second bad news, more people gasping.

If you look at the top picture, you should be able to see it clearly.

Lockdown order, London on the run!

London’s train stations are packed – people scramble to get on the last train leaving the capital before midnight.

You can imagine how crowded the stations and trains are, and what’s worse, many people are not wearing masks yet.

There are very, very few cases in China, but can you imagine the passengers in Beijing South Station, Shanghai Hongqiao station, not wearing masks?

It has to be said that the world, our quality has limited our imagination.
Anyway, things we can’t even think about happen all the time in London, even though the city is under a state of emergency.

Not everyone has the opportunity to escape London, and those who choose to stay in the capital find that the subsequent closure means many shops and shops will close.

As a result, many people rushed to buy life’s necessities before midnight, as well as Christmas gifts.

In many shopping malls and supermarkets, you can see the crowd. People are lining up for shopping, and many of them are not wearing masks.

The closure of the city was to prevent the spread of the virus;
But the result of the lockdown was a mass exodus, even a mass exodus.

What does that mean for other regions and countries that are too late to act?

You should get the idea.

Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party, quipped on social media: “Congratulations to the Prime minister and your brain trust for the first Exodus from London since 1939.”

The last time was world War II, 80 years ago, and this one is bigger than the last.

Therefore, the closure of a megalopolis does not mean that it can be sealed. It requires not only political courage, but also wisdom and strategy. Without effective organization and command and active cooperation of the people, the closure of a city is often the beginning of another disaster.

Again, two of the worst news, the first supervirus variant, the second London Escape.

The world watched in horror as countries scrambled to act.

As you can see, the nearest European country to Britain has taken emergency action since midnight on Sunday, cutting off almost all traffic to Britain.

France, from the early hours of Sunday, banned British visitors for 48 hours.

Germany, except for cargo, will not accept all FLIGHTS from The UK from the early hours of Sunday.

Belgium banned flights and halted train traffic with Britain.

In addition, Ireland has imposed a 48-hour ban on FLIGHTS to the UK, the Netherlands has banned flights to the UK for the rest of the year and Italy, already suffering, has banned anyone who has been to The UK from entering Italy for the next 14 days.

Outside Europe, Israel has also issued emergency orders banning flights from Britain, Denmark and South Africa, all of which have detected strains of the virus.

Iran has issued a similar ban.

Please note that many of these decisions are urgent and time is tight, and more detailed measures will follow.
But more and more countries are expected to follow suit. After all, human lives are at stake, and any slackening of efforts means more lives.

If you have to travel abroad these days, pay close attention and be careful. Of course, if you can avoid going out, you’d better not.

For worse, the variants are spreading.

Maria van Kokhoff, technical director of the Health emergency program at the World Health Organization (WHO), said that in addition to the United Kingdom, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Australia, the variant had been found.

She warned that the longer mutations spread, the greater the chance of remutations, “so we really need to do everything we can now to prevent transmission.”

Time is of the essence. We must race against the clock now.

Well, I don’t know what to say.

The year 2020 is finally coming to an end, a vaccine has been developed and a new and scarier variant has emerged in The UK, while many politicians gleefully declare that “light at the end of the tunnel has been seen”.

In 2020, we have seen so many tragedies that we thought were coming to an end, but we have seen new tragedies happening.

The nightmare we experienced quickly this Spring Festival took the Westerners a whole year to experience slowly, and the new nightmare came again.

Then came Christmas in the West, one of the worst and most memorable.
Alas, perhaps we have to say again: no winter will not cross, no spring will not come!
