Woo, today is day one of 2021. (Ne ga chae chala ga – dang, writing Korean 2ne1 lyrics in English looks off)

We’re still in a very fatal pandemic.

Things still suck.

Covid-19 is still here (by the way, everyone, the “19” in “Covid-19” is because the virus was found in 2019. It is officially 2021.)

There’s a vaccine, which is great. It is going to take a remarkably long time to pump it out to everyone, which is not so great.

Viruses naturally mutate, this one is no different. A new, variant has been discovered in the UK and it’s already in America. (If it was in Korea, you know for fact it is in the US). Woooo, that mean there’s a potential the vaccines may or may not work on everyone and for all forms of Covid-19. Because usually vaccines are for one kind of an ailment, not if the ailment’s genetic strand takes a souped up turn (by the way, the new Covid variant’s name is “B.1.1.7”, “VUI-202012/21” or, my personal fav, “London’s Bridge is Falling Down, These Guys Have a History of Plague” or “Bloody Rats!” for short. “British Flu” is a nice runner up. So is just plain singing “Posies”). This might turn out just fine and the current Covid vaccines can knock it out. Things might turn out not so fine and everybody has to go back to the drawing board to make another vaccine, just for the variant.

Basically, new year, same nonsense.

Happy 2020 pt 2: The Reckoning, everybody!

And remember:



And wear a mask
