It is certainly true that it will get her eventually, and probably that it is here already, but reducing the amount that gets here still matters, as well as delaying that as much as possible so a better response can be developed. So I therefore support travel restrictions on this one.
I also agree with the travel restrictions, buying time to allow scientists to work out what we are up against is important. All I meant is that whilst it might be difficult I don’t think we should worry too much about variants as there is little we can do to stop them. We just have to hope that they don’t end up being something seriously nasty. I‘m still fairly confident that with a bit of fiddling with the vaccine we should be okay against most things.
