  • Just, uh, an hour or so ago, we were informed that this new variant, this new strain that we've identified obviously from the United Kingdom, others some other parts of the globe identified in Colorado yesterday has been identified here in the state of California.

  • Well, Governor, first of all, I'm not surprised that you have, Ah, a case and likely more cases in California, and we likely will be seeing reports from other states.

  • Colorado were the first to do that.

  • I think you're gonna start seeing it, because if you have that much of a prominence of this in the UK, with all the travel not only directly to the United States but through other countries, intermittently like where you go from UK to France, France to the United States, etcetera, then Canada has cases.

  • So I don't think that the Californians should feel that this is something odd.

  • This is something that's expected.

  • There's a lot we know about it because the our British colleagues have been studying it carefully.

  • And there are things that we will soon learn Maura about them in a more definitive way, literally, as the days and weeks go by.

  • So the things you mentioned is that it looks pretty clear from the U.

  • K group that, in fact, the transmissibility of this mutant is more efficient than the transmitter disability of the standard virus that we've been dealing with up to now.

  • Namely, it just it's able to bind to the receptors on cells better and therefore is transmitted better.

  • There's no indication at all that it increases the virulent, and by violence, I mean the ability to make you sick or kill you.

  • It doesn't seem to make it more strong in that regard.

  • In addition, it doesn't seem to evade the protection that's afforded by the antibodies that are induced by vaccines.

  • Thea other thing that they've noted in the UK is that people who have been infected don't seem to get re infected by this, which means that the immunity that's given to you when you get infected is protective against this particular strain theory.

  • Overwhelming majority of mutations are irrelevant.

  • They don't have any impact on any important function of the virus.

  • Every once in a while you get a mutation that does impact a function of the virus.

  • It appears from what we learned from the UK, and what will prove here is that this particular mutation does in fact make the virus better at transmitting from one person to another.
