Several up and coming variants are not really better spreaders per se...

They're better reproducers.

...In all, the data supports what experts have already hypothesized based on other data. That is, that the more transmissible viruses are not spreading more easily because they linger longer in the air or can travel farther. Instead, the viruses are likely spreading more because they either produce more virus in people’s airways—meaning people are simply expelling more infectious virus at once or over time—and/or the viruses are better at infecting cells, thus fewer viral particles are needed to start an infection (smaller infectious dose). The data also suggests that masking and the current distancing recommendations are still effective at reducing the spread of the more transmissible variants.

So, tough guess whatcha gotta to do to protect yourself...





Keep wearing a mask!
