Indiana’s Department of Health says a new strain of the coronavirus has come to The Hoosier State.

The new strain is a mutation of COVID-19 that is easier to transmit from person to person. It was first identified in Great Britain.

So far the new strain is not proving to be more deadly or causing more severe infections, but it is far easier to spread and has now been found in Indiana. For that reason, State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box says it’s more important than ever for Hoosiers to continue to wear their masks, practice social distancing, maintain good hygiene and get vaccinated when they are eligible.

Anyone know how all these states can immediately identify a “NEW” strain of virus? hmmmmmm…Right when the vaccine for the “OLD” virus is rolling out too. What a coincidence. I guess another year of political control over our personal lifes is warrented. We have too many succesful businesses anyway. Too many rich people in this country. This new virus will take care of that with more shutdowns. Who needs an education anyway? Our children only will need to be taught to obey the all mighty, all knowing government and do as they are told. I hope I don’t get arrested for not quarentining while I am in a breadline one of these days. Thank goodness for our medically trained all knowing politicians! Where we would be without them?
