Here Is Why ‘Covid20’ Is Trending On Twitter

British Prime Minister announced a new variant of the Corona Virus and Twitter can't keep calm over calling it Covid20.

Just weeks before we were celebrating the arrival of the vaccine for the Covid-19 pandemic. And, to our dismay, the officials in Britain have raised an emergency alarm about what they called a highly contagious new variant of the coronavirus, Covid20, circulating in England.

“When the virus changes its method of attack, we must change our method of defense,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

According to scientists, South Africa is the second country to witness the emerging new ‘Covid20’ virus. After the data sampling from mid-November, the virus was found in up to 90% of the samples.

Scientists are worried about these variants but not surprised. Researchers have recorded thousands of tiny modifications in the genetic material of the covid-19 as it has been transmitted across the world.

According to British officials, the variant was as much as 70% more transmissible than covid-19. In South Africa, too, scientists were quick to note that human behavior has driven the epidemic across the world but in this case (Covid20) the transmissibility is much more dominant.

The British also raised concern over the vaccination for ‘Covid20’. According to scientists, the vaccination which is rolling out now won’t be effective at all to treat the new variant.

However, Twitter is on a ride of thoughts and memes over the new variant of the Coronavirus. Check out this tweets on Covid20:
