Pirola: New “highly mutated” COVID-19 strain discovered in the UK
By Zoey Sky // Aug 30, 2023

Scientists have identified a new "highly mutated" strain of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.K. and in several other countries.

The new variant, named BA.2.86 (pirola), has a high number of genetic changes from the original Omicron variant.

UKHSA tight-lipped about pirola variant

Despite confirming one case in the U.K., the U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has declined to give any more details about the pirola variant.

Experts have said that the newly discovered strain could have up to 30 changes in its protein makeup. Researchers are on alert as they believe that the mutations could beat the body’s immunity from prior infections or even vaccination.

To date, only six cases of pirola infection have been detected worldwide, but experts anticipate the eventual spread of the new variant. They also warn the public to be wary of the new variant and be "aware of the symptoms."

Pirola was first detected in late July 2023. Experts believe pirola was descended from the omicron BA.2 sublineage, which was behind a surge in COVID cases in early 2022.

Pirola may not be dangerous but could spread easily

With backing from Big Pharma and the government, the new COVID-19 variant has given the ruling class more reason to scare the public into getting tested and vaccinated, even though many reports have already proven that COVID-19 vaccines are linked to adverse side effects and deaths.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), insists that testing and being vigilant is key to preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

"We wouldn’t know if the virus is changing, in case we don’t test enough. Testing is vital to see how the virus is evolving," said Ghebreyesus. (Related: Indonesian scientists claim to have discovered the MOST MUTATED COVID-19 variant.)

Health experts are urging people to get tested if they experience any of these symptoms:

  • Cold
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • High fever
  • A loss of the sense of taste or smell
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat

Despite the WHO's warnings, mainstream media surprisingly has yet to scare the public into panicking over the pirola variant. Instead, they are telling people that while pirola could spread more easily, this doesn't necessarily make it more dangerous compared to other COVID-19 variants.

Experts say that in most cases, viruses become less deadly as they mutate because it gives them a better chance of survival. However, there is not enough data about the pirola variant to confirm if this is case.

Kathleen Conley, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in a statement that the CDC is "more prepared than ever to detect and respond to changes in the Covid-19 virus. Scientists are working now to understand more about the newly identified lineage in these 4 cases and we will share more information as it becomes available."

Jesse Bloom, an evolutionary biologist at the Fred Hutch Cancer Centre, said that the results of deep mutational scanning have revealed that the pirola variant will have "equal or greater escape than XBB.1.5 from antibodies elicited by pre-Omicron and first-generation Omicron variants."
