As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden took no questions from reporters after announcing Monday that the Pfizer-Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has received FDA approval, so everyone waiting for full approval should get in line now for the jab, and also mask up their children when they leave home.
The contagious Delta variant is what has frightened everybody back into masks for the time being, but Insider Paper is reporting that an expert is warning about a new super-variant called COVID-22 that could be even more dangerous than the Delta variant.
ALERT: New super variant named “Covid-22” could be more dangerous than Delta strain, expert warnedhttps://t.co/uChKwKTyFv
— Insider Paper (@TheInsiderPaper) August 23, 2021
“Professor Doctor Sai Reddy of the federal technology institute ETH Zurich, an immunologist, believes that combination of existing strains could result in a new and more dangerous phase of the pandemic,” the paper reports. In other words, COVID-22 doesn’t exist yet and might not ever exist.

This is the way it’s going to be for the foreseeable future, we’re going to be pounded with scare pieces about variants, some of which don’t even exist.

Pure fear porn – this variant doesn't even exist yet except in the mind of the scientist being interviewed.

We are just building up to a variant that can only be combatted with The Avengers. https://t.co/TEdEJHnVK1

I see a reply of “I’m done.” Any chance this kind of crap is a blessing in disguise in that it tips people over into ignoring the panicmongers?
— GentleBenj (@GentleBenj) August 23, 2021
Counterpoint: it may be just as dangerous or less dangerous.

How do they know these so called variants are making people sick? Is there a new test for then or are they just speculating?
— Kenneth (@yabo171) August 23, 2021
It’s stoking fear over something that hasn’t happened yet. It’s also possible that it mutates into a variety that spreads 10 times faster than Delta but causes almost no symptoms making everyone immune in a month.

The Delta variant panic-porn still has a good shelf-life to it; no need to rush to some hypothetical super-variant just yet.
More of THIS –> As media continue to TERRIFY the masses about Delta, Brit Hume shares just a LITTLE common sense and drops them all https://t.co/HxwZm7zDkt
