Frightening Warning From British Scientific Committee About New Variant
British scientific committee members, who opposed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who decided to lift the Covid-19 bans, warned that 'the next variant can kill a third of the people infected'.
While British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce his decision to lift the restrictions, which have been going on for about 2 years, as part of the “strategy of living with Covid-19”, it turned out that a report was presented to Johnson by the members of the British scientific board (SAGE).
“It is just a fluke that the Omicron variant is lighter,” the report said. Authorities cannot pretend that the virus has disappeared.” In the report, it was also noted that the early lifting of Covid-19 restrictions could lead to a new and more deadly variant.
Mortality Rate May Increase to 35 Percent with New Variant
In the report prepared by the members of the scientific committee, “Restrictions should continue as the long-term effects of Covid-19 and future variants are not yet known. The next variant of Covid-19 could kill a third of the people it infects.
In one of the reports discussed by the members of the scientific committee, it was stated that the rate of killing people of Covid-19 was at the level of 10 percent, while it was suggested that the rate of killing of the virus could reach 35 percent in the emergence of an epidemic such as the MERS virus.
