It took about a year and a half for the COVID-19 virus to mutate into a much stronger version, spreading six times as much than the original. It is now known as the delta variant, and it isn’t about to stop at that. Delta is scary enough that even some anti-vaccine politicians and newscasters are now telling people to get the vaccine.
In another two years, possibly sooner, the delta variant will mutate into another version, potentially even stronger. Maybe then folks will realize who was spreading the fake news. This latest version won’t go away when it gets warmer, either.
