We lost to SARS-CoV-2 in 2020. We can defeat B-117 in 2021 - STAT
Humanity wasn't remotely prepared for SARS-Cov-2 when it emerged late in 2019. We are better prepared for the new virus, B-117

“Because #B117 can grow exponentially even in communities that are keeping #SARSCoV2 under control, the situation is extremely urgent. If we want vaccination to win this new race, we have to slow down the new virus while it’s still rare.” Read @mlipsitch! statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…

A strategy for countering UK Covid variant. We must pay equal worry to SA variant. It may be a major threat. It might partially defeat some existing medical countermeasures. Is it more fit? We're not actively looking for it, or acting with proper urgency. statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…

Wise words as ever from @mlipsitch. "We lost to SARS-CoV-2 in 2020. We can defeat B-117 in 2021" Although B-117 is not the most worrying variant and will not be the last. statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…

With @mlipsitch: We can slow the new virus if we 1) Screen positive SARS-CoV-2 tests to find all clusters 2) Prioritize test-trace-isolate of B.1.1.7 3) Consider community vaccination around growing clusters statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…

Great piece from @kesvelt @mlipsitch. We have a chance to get ahead of B-117 with a combination of screening among confirmed SARS-CoV2 for the variant, and prioritizing testing, tracing and vaccination where B-117 is found. But the clock is ticking. statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…

'Most important, the new vaccines that have been developed against SARSCoV2 & that are being rolled out in the US and several other countries around the world are likely to protect us against B-117, meaning vaccination campaigns could defeat both viruses' statnews.com/2021/01/09/we-…
