Twitter loaded with #MutationMemes

As new Covid strain spreads in the UK, Twitter filled with #MutationMemes: 

As 2020 is about to come to end, our expectation of a happy, brighter, and coronavirus-free 2021 was high. But all of it was broken when a new strain of Covid-19 was found in the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that this new strain is 70 per cent more infectious than the OG virus, reports Business Today.

The UK PM also announced that the country won’t be celebrating Christmas this year. 

However, Indian-American physician Dr. Vivek Murthy said that the new strain doesn’t appear to be any deadlier.

He said: “This news from the UK appears to be about a new strain of the virus that’s more transmissible, more contagious than the virus we’ve seen prior to this,” He added, “While it seems to be more transmissible, we do not have evidence yet that this is a more deadly virus to an individual who acquires it.” Deadlier or not, the news of the new variant of coronavirus has saddened us all.

Showing their disappointment, people took to Twitter and started sharing memes and jokes about the new mutation. Check out the memes: 

Keeping the risk in mind, various countries including India, France, Germany, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Canada, Iran among others have reportedly banned British flights. 

We still hope for a happier 2021!
