And the million dollar question is.........


Will the vaccines still work?


The general consensus in UK is yes- against severe illness anyway.  I hope this is right.

We can speculate all we want, but we won't know for two weeks.  


And there will be plenty of speculation, that's for sure.  


Another thing that is for sure, if this new variant ends up in your country you may just get blacklisted.  Meaning if it ends up in Thailand.  


It's impossible to think about what each government will do, but our government bans all flights from south africa and other nations down there and you must stay in another country - for fourteen days before returning.  Once back you get to stay in a quarantine hotel for ten days on your own dime.  And it is not cheap either.  


If they want to protect against these variants, and I am sure Thailand will want to do the same, there could be similar bans shortly.  And if they don't do this and it gets in Thailand, it will be the other way around.  Other countries will ban Thailand or make it much more difficult to get from Thailand home.  


It is very serious but I do hope that this variant will be of no concern.  WE will know more in 14 days.

This new Variant of Covid , which is now called " Omicron ", has now been detected in the UK with a couple of cases, and more worrying is that there appears to be several people on a KLM flight to the Netherlands that have the virus.

There are Two big take outs from this.

The first is that Countries which are testing in large numbers , are finding the new Variant very quickly.

And Secondly, If this is correct, then this thing is extremely Transmissible, as it only came to the surface on 9th November, and seems to be not only contained to the South of the African Continent already in 20 Days.

As for those Countries that are not testing in large numbers ?

Well, the Jury is out on that one, but its a fair guess they will get cases very, very soon, and thats if they dont already have them.

Fair point, don't test enough, don't find the cases, cannot sequence the virus to find out its genome. Don't know if the figures out there for Thailand's genome sequencing tests. Pretty sure it's low number compared to some other countries.
