"Gemuchenja" - Covid 19's new gobal, more tranmissible, mutation strain 501.V2 from South Africa and the UK variant B.1.1.7 are particularly concerning.

Every once in a while, a virus strikes it lucky by mutating in a way that positively affects its ability to survive and reproduce.This has occurred over the past few weeks with Covid 19.

This might be why New Zealand is the only Western country that has a chance to ERADICATE Covid-19, instead of just containing and managing it, until a vaccine is developed.

If the current 'Lockdown' succeeds, then stringent social distancing measures can be eased.

Life can return to something approaching normal, even with boarders closed, or entry into the country severely curtailed.

It is a team of 5 million people.
