(1) We must keep an eye on a new descendant of the Delta variant called AY.4.2 that now makes up about 9% of cases in the UK and May in part be responsible for a bump in cases there. AY.4.2 appears to be about 10% more transmissible than the original Delta variant. #COVID19
Proportion of AY.4.2 (now on covid19.sanger.ac.uk) has been steadily increasing in England, which is a pattern that is quite different from other AY lineages. Several of them rose when there was still Alpha to displace, but none has had a consistent advantage vs other Delta.

This was a breakthrough death from Covid. Here is a good thread on this topic. #COVID19
Replying to @PeterHotez
According to CDC among 187 million vaccinated Americans there have been roughly 7,000 breakthrough deaths, with >6,000 over the age of 65, as compared to >700,000 COVID deaths among the unvaccinated. So breakthrough deaths esp elderly can occur but rare cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/he…
