Is there a new G64 super spreading COVID-19 strain from India and Egypt?
Find out what’s been said about this G64 super spreader strain, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : G64 Super Spreader COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt!
This warning has been spreading on WhatsApp, with a link to a MalaysiaKini report called KL restaurant customer part of new cluster, nine cases report today.
G64 COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt? Bullshit!
The viral warning has actually been circulating since August 2020 and is completely false! Here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : MalaysiaKini Labelled It Fake
Most people do not read beyond the headlines or the message, and the person who created this fake message knows that very well.
He/she intentionally inserted the link to a genuine MalaysiaKini article, to make it look like a genuine warning based on the article.
However, the article does not refer to any particular COVID-19 strain, or referred to any super spreader variant.
It only mentioned that the first two cases in the Maju cluster involved workers at a restaurant, but it is unknown if they are foreigners or locals.
In any case, MalaysiaKini labelled the message as FAKE on 27 August 2020.
Fact #2 : There Is No G64 COVID-19 Strain
There is no such thing as a G64 strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
At that time, the concern was over the D614G strain that was detected in the Sivagangga Cluster, which originated from India.
The D614G strain is more infectious than the original strain, but is not more dangerous.
This fake news is spreading again in April 2021, because there is a catastrophic surge of COVID-19 cases in India; and they found a new variant with double mutations – both L452R and E484Q mutations.
However, this new variant is not linked to the surge of COVID-19 cases in India. That was due to the Indian government allowing massive political rallies and the giant Kumbh Mela festival to proceed.
Fact #3 : There Are Now Vaccines!
We have to point this out, because this viral message is still spreading, and people actually believe that there is no vaccine for this (fake) G64 strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Multiple COVID-19 vaccines have now been approved, and administered worldwide. So make sure you get vaccinated against COVID-19 ASAP!
