Scientists say a now-dominant strain of the coronavirus could be more contagious than original

Scientists have identified a new strain of the coronavirus that has become dominant worldwide and appears to be more contagious than the versions that spread in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The new strain appeared in February in Europe, migrated quickly to the East Coast of the United States and has been the dominant strain across the world since mid-March, the scientists wrote.
(...)
In many places where the new strain appeared, it quickly infected far more people than the earlier strains that came out of Wuhan, China, and within weeks it was the only strain that was prevalent in some nations, according to the report. The new strainís dominance over its predecessors suggests that it is more infectious, according to the report, though exactly why is not yet known.

If only it were less lethal. But with all these asymptomatic cases, maybe it is.

So maybe the Chinese weren't lying about their case totals, if the earlier strain was less contagious.

One of Trump's personal valets has tested positive for coronavirus

unfortunately trump is still testing negative.

obviously trump won't be quarantining himself, despite the direct exposure...

Never trust the Chinese numbers.  NEVER.

Is it possible though that 100,000 Chinese could of died in Wuhan and nobody knows? Wouldnít satellites pick this up?

I donít trust the Chinese government either but am curious if hundreds of thousands died wouldnít we know? By we I mean our government not individuals

I read somewhere that Russia and China in particular had a 30-40% increase of reported pneumonia deaths in March or April while reporting COVID deaths were decreasing.  So they started looking at other increases in deaths and found that they were simply spreading them out among other causes.
