Some new interesting stats on the new variants that having some increase in spread in the UK now:
Here same graphs shown using 7-day rolling averages instead of raw new cases per day to average out weekday effects a bit. Declining epidemics for B.1.1.7 compensate for a while with increasing epidemics of B.1.617.2, causing cases to appear flat for a while, but not for long… pic.twitter.com/HJPEnlTLmz

I think the variants is a bit tricky to judge, they do not seem to be more deadly from what I have seen but they seem to spread more easily?
Most likely imo the variants wont lead to a big new wave as such we have seen earlier but one must be vary of this develop.
