Well, this can't be good.

According to a report from WMUR, the first case of the P.1. COVID-19 variant was found in Massachusetts.  This variant originated in Brazil.  The person who has it, according to the report, is in her 30's and lives in Barnstable County, which is the Cape.  Massachusetts has 213 cases of the U. K. variant and 6 cases of the South African variant.

New Hampshire has 9 U.K. variant cases, however, the Brazilian and South African variants have not yet been detected in the 603.  The U. K. variant of the virus spreads more easily and has caused a surge of cases in the U.K. as well as other countries.

Listen, I'm just gonna level with you.  If I get the vaccine for the plain ol' COVID-19, then I have to get another vaccine for all the variants, I'll be really upset.  I'm not really psyched to get it in the first place.  Don't worry, if you're reading this and you see me on a regular basis - I'll get the shot (or shots) but I'm not joyful like some people are.

Also, not psyched that there are 9 cases of the U.S. COVID-19 variant here in New Hampshire.  What does this mean?  Is this thing not over?  I don't even want to think about it.  If we have to lock down again, there will be businesses that won't be able to survive, nevermind the psychological damage that it will do.

Hopefully, we'll get through.  Summer is coming!
