‘In other words, media, calm your T*TS’! Thread on Deltacron (the new variant, da da DAAA!) RAINS all over the fear-brigade’s latest panic fest Posted at 10:09 am on January 9, 2022 by Sam Janney Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Move OVER Flurona, make room for DELTACRON. *eye roll*Doctor dubs new strain "deltacron" https://t.co/94OALDsmmu— Bloomberg (@business) January 8, 2022 Or you know, don’t, because this newest variant out of Cyprus is not really a new variant at all.Take a gander:Just a heads up. Regarding “Deltacron” or the “new variant” out of Cyprus. Please be aware those sequences being reported by media outlets right now appear to be due to contamination. It is NOT a new variant.— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 8, 2022Imagine if media outlets actually WAITED to get all the facts before they reported on something like a new variant of COVID. Crazy talk, we know. No time for reality when there are millions of Americans to terrify into hiding and boosting and masking and then hiding and boosting and masking some more.Per @PeacockFlu “they do not cluster on a phylogenetic tree and have a whole artic primer sequencing amplicon of Omicron in an otherwise Delta backbone.”— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 8, 2022 Trending Mary Katharine Ham uses Crossfire Hurricane to take David Axelrod and the FBI APART in short but NOT sweet thread David French shames people for being angry at the FBI because GOSH GOLLY GEE, nobody is above the law (and WOW that's a lotta backfire) Science.Who knew?When processing several COVID samples at the same time, procedural failures can occur, and contaminations between samples with different variants occur. As @wanderer_jasnah says, it is PCR recombination due to contamination. Usually computational analysis can detect these flaws.— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 8, 2022Good ol’ PCR tests.Gotta love ’em.If needed, GISAID is always accessible and can be found here: https://t.co/6qWAwmHUic— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 8, 2022Dear Media,You should visit the link.Big kissies,Twitchy TeamRegarding the number of samples. When you do a PCR run, with contamination present in your original sample, and your samples are on that same run you are simply replicating that contamination. As @STEMthebleeding so cleverly put it, think of xeroxing a piece of paper with an— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 9, 2022ink spot on it. Every copy made will have that same ink spot. Per @PeacockFlu, the “Deltacron” sequences reported look to be quite clearly contamination and appear to have been sequenced by the same lab (possibly even on the same run as well) so they're not independent samples.— Chise 🧬🧫🦠💉 (@sailorrooscout) January 9, 2022In other words, media, calm your t*ts.***Related:‘1st Amendment much?’ Glenn Greenwald (and SO many others) DRAGS Judd Apatow for asking why FCC doesn’t just take Fox News’ license away‘NOT how this works, bud.’ Marc Elias melting DOWN over Washington Examiner’s caricature cover of him (claims bigotry?!)
