Among the protesters of the measures adopted, Florian Philippot, at the head of the Patriotes movement, does not hesitate to relay the thesis of the invention of the variant. March 16, 2021, the account of the politician publish this : « Cis in France thathas been inventé the stealthy variant, undetectable in the PCR test. Here is a technological secret that Macron should this time srush to the Germans. »

A variantt classIt is ” in the study »

However, on March 13, 2021, the Breton variant has indeed been detected in a hôpital de Lannion, where a cluster of 78 people affected by Covid-19 has been spotted. By sequencing these coronavirus cases, a new variant was detected in eight patients, who have since died. As in the case of the English, South African or Brazilian variants, the strain took the name of the place where it was first detected. However, unlike these variants considered to be of concern, particularly for their degree of contagiousness, the analyzes provided by the Directorate General for Health indicate that there is no evidence to suggest that it is serious. ni to an increased transmissibility of the variant known as ” breton “. The observations on the cases of Covid-19 in Lannion, show that the deceased patients were quite old, with important comorbid factors and that the tests carried out on them were negative for seven dbetween them. Todayhui, ce variant nworriedyou are not particularisrement and it remains thus classified in the ” variants under study ».

La thisis unfounded by the vaccine producing variants

Among the infox circulating on the Breton variant, viral publications make the vaccine responsible for its appearance.

Under this tweet, an internet user explains: “It has been a while since many doctors warn about the mutant factory following vaccination. “ However, the theory da variant consequence of the vaccine, circulating from theemergence of new strains in Britain is not based on anything. According to Yves Buisson, professor of the Academy of Medicine, contacted by AFP, thethe appearance of variants is a natural process of viruses that keep mutating. While vaccination in England started in December, the variant appeared in September and cases were detected as early as November. Moreover, the English, triss efficient in terms ofisre sequencing, have detected the mutation that may have started outside their territory and earlier, without having been spottede. In total, UK health services have identified more than 4 000 forms of Sars CoV2 variants. Mutations in the virus did not wait for the arrival of vaccines.
