The Sun UK: New variant ‘could already by in the UK’ amid fears vaccines are 40% less effective, expert warns.
UK health chiefs say the new strain, centred in south African countries, is the "most worrying and complex" seen yet.
Really? Is that confirmed? South Africa's Health Minister says no.
It is the most evolved so far with 50 mutations, 32 of which are of particular concern, and could be worse than Delta, experts have warned.
There's that word again: 'Could'
The variant, scientifically called B.1.1.529, has not yet been confirmed in the UK as of yet.
But Dr Susan Hopkins, chief medical adviser at the UK Health Security Agency, said it was "always possible".
With up to 700 people flying in from South Africa per day, it cannot be ruled out.
