The apparent rapid growth in England of a new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 has led to dire warnings by those advising the UK government. Their advice suggested only that the new variant was more transmissible (more infective), not that it was more virulent (causes more serious illness). Nevertheless, it resulted in swift (many would say panicky) actions first by the UK government and then by governments of many other countries.
