A mutation that could allow Covid-19 to escape antibody protection has now been found in samples of a rapidly spreading strain in the UK, according to a report by Public Health England on Monday.

“This doesn’t appear to be great news for vaccine efficacy,” said Joseph Fauver, associate research scientist in epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health.

"We need to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can,” Fauci previously said.

Americans are concerned about new Covid-19 variants and worrying less about sending children back to school, according to an Axios-Ipsos poll published Tuesday.

The latest poll found 83% of people sampled reported that they are at least somewhat concerned new strains may be more contagious, while about 33% among them said they are “extremely” concerned.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore,” the statement, from his daughters Hannah Ingram-Moore and Lucy Teixeira to PA Media said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday warned against administering just the first dose of Covid-19 vaccines in order to inoculate as many people as possible.

Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday that as many people as possible over the age of 65 should be given their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine ahead of a possible surge in cases due to more transmissible variants.

Fauci said while the idea “isn’t completely outlandish,” the solution to a limited supply of doses and new coronavirus variants is not to administer single doses, but to ramp up the availability of vaccine doses not only of Moderna and Pfizer, but also new candidates, such as Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, and Oxford-AstraZeneca, among others.

“The best way to prevent the evolution of mutations is to suppress the replication of the virus in the community, which means that we need to vaccinate as many people as quickly as we possibly can do it, as efficiently as we possibly can,” Fauci said.

A day after the White House coronavirus task force cautioned providers not to hold back first doses of Covid-19 vaccine for later use as potential second doses, some states and providers remain hesitant to comply, worried about future supply when second doses come due.
