The Trump admin's bungling of the pandemic has made the US weaker than it's been in decades, maybe ever.

Topol said it is too late for travel bans.

Yep, the millions of Chinese carried it far and wide....

Scientists have found no evidence that it is more lethal or causes more severe illness, and they believe the vaccines now being dispensed will be effective against it. But a faster-spreading virus could swamp hospitals with seriously ill patients.

Then, basically this is just another log on the fear fire?

Perhaps for those who live their lives in fear, for example those who have acquired private arsenals rivaling those of some nation's armies, those who get dressed up in camouflage, faux flak vests and carry assault rifles in attempts to make others fear. The majority of those with a modicum of reasoning ability will take the information and act reasonably. I've only read terms like 'fear fire' and 'fear mongering' written by those most afraid, seemingly afraid of life itself.

It seems that the people using the word “fear” tend to be on the right side of the political spectrum compared to those behaving cautiously and rationally.

I like watching horror movies, maybe they get a similar thrill.

Completely and utterly incorrect. It is literally pertinent information we should all keep in mind, well us rational adults anyway, as we do our part to help get this situation under control.

It is more contagious than previous variants of SARS-CoV2. That might change some behaviors for some people.

The irony of your comment is that this latest mutation of SAR-CoV2 has not yet been detected in China, or anywhere in Asia, yet. So far it has been detected only in the UK, US, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium and Australia.

The confirmed case is a person who has no travel history. Make no mistake, it is all OVER the country, not just Colorado. CO is simply the first state to detect it.

Only if you feer lockdowns, because this variant is likely to require more lockdowns. That is because it spreads more easily and hence could get out of control in a population and overrun the hospital system, hence necessitating lockdowns.

Of course the 'new' virus strain is so-called detected in two blue states. Hm, what are the chances.

Take it to Parler Randy.
