A another new variant of covid

 There is many new variants of covid but the one we are going to talk about on this post is MU variant of covid virus.  The MU variant of covid was found in Columbia , South America in January 2021. This variant has caused some outbreaks in Europe, south A,Erica and the United States. The vaccines of covid and treatments are less effective in this variant.  By far this one is not spreading as quickly as the original covid variant and Delta variant of covid .  But for most the quickest one of the spread of the covid variant is still the Delta variant . The symptoms are the same as the variants of the covid and delta variant.  So please take extra caution around these variants.
