    More news about the B.1.1.7 variant strain, the COVID-19 variant was identified in more states. This variant strain mutates 17 times more than the other strain. And is more contagious. It can be more easily transferable between people. They are administering more vaccines to people, and according to Dr. Fauci, the vaccines that works against the virus will most likely be more efficient in people that have the less severe transmittable virus. But he says that more people will need to be vaccinated and it is still a waiting game. This new strain that attaches itself to the protein spike is a more contagious virus and is showing up in more states across the United States. California being our closest state just came off a lockdown. And as you already know, the so called esoteric sports stuff the Rose Bowl 2021 was moved to Texas because of California’s tightened restrictions on COVID-19. As if Texas doesn’t have any of the COVID-19 virus. They do. One other news on the COVID-19 and the sports page on COVID-19.
