Merdeka.com – A table is circulating showing the names of the Covid-19 variants along with the release date of each variant. The photo also includes the logos of the WHO, the World Economic Forum, and Johns Hopkins University.
Account uploads Facebook This is accompanied by a narrative that WHO deliberately spreads a new variant of the Covid-19 virus. In the table in between, it is written that the Delta variant was discovered in June 2021, while the Zeta variant was found in August 2021. There is also an Omega variant that will be deployed in February 2023.
“SCHEDULE OF NEW VARIANT VIRUSES THAT WILL SPREAD EL GLO – ILLUMINA
They deliberately spread the virus and added using media fear propaganda.. until we all want to inject pakcin which is actually not pakcin.. but bio-chemical weapons
– cool.. it’s like a movie theater, there’s already a schedule when it starts showing –“
A search by merdeka.com shows that there is no evidence linking the emergence of a new variant of the Corona virus by the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Economic Forum and John Hopkin University. Launching from Tempo.co, the emergence of a new variant is the result of a natural mutation of the virus.
In its official website, John Hopkin University actually explains that the emergence of viral variants occurs when there are changes or mutations in viral genes. This is the nature of RNA viruses such as corona viruses that can evolve and change gradually. Geographical differences tend to produce genetically distinct variants.
But mutations in viruses, including the coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 pandemic, are neither new nor unexpected. All RNA viruses mutate from time to time, some even more so than others. For example, the flu virus changes frequently.
WHO in its report on January 25, 2021, explained that the evolution of the virus is something that naturally occurs, giving rise to new variants of the original virus. Such mutations may result in the virus becoming more transmissible, increasing disease severity or affecting diagnostic, therapeutic or vaccine efficacy.
In addition, the date the new variant of the Corona virus was discovered in the table is not accurate. The Delta variant, for example, is written to be launched in June 2021. Even though this variant was first discovered in India in October 2020, according to a report from Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany.
Then the Kappa variant, according to the United States Centers for Disease Prevention and Management (CDC), this virus was first identified in India in December 2020. While in the upload, it says December 2021.
Meanwhile, quoted from the BBC, for the names of virus variants using the Greek alphabet officially on May 31, 2021. It aims to remove the stigma of the names of new variants previously identified with certain countries. In addition, naming with the Greek alphabet is easier to use than the original scientific name.
Information on the schedule for the launch of a new variant of Covid-19 which was deliberately spread by WHO is a hoax. In fact, an inaccuracy was found between the first time a new variant was identified and the date written in the table.
Don’t be easy to believe and check every information you get. Make sure it comes from a trusted source so that it can be justified.
