A new strain of COVID-19, which spreads even faster than the current strain was discovered in the United Kingdom and has been spreading rapidly in the Southern part of the nation, according to the UK Health Ministry and reports.

The UK Health Ministry Matt Hancock announced that more than 11 million people will be moving to a Tier 3 lockdown on Wednesday due to the new outbreak and an effort to mitigate it.

He said UK health officials have diagnosed 1,000 cases of the new “variant” virus, which “has been discovered in up to 60 places across the UK.” The World Health Organization has been informed, Hancock said.

A major question I have is whether or not the new vaccines developed by Pfizer, Moderna and others will work against this new virus strain? What measures will be taken in the United States to help mitigate the spread of the new virus?

London, most of Essex and parts of Hertfordshire will go into Tier 3 from 12.01am on Wednesday (December 16, 2020) – the toughest of the coronavirus lockdown measures.

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
