because we nailed the cure for the common cold so long ago.

We probably will eventually. It's just that so many viruses cause cold symptoms and those viruses constantly mutate.

And work faster than we can, meaning they will always be at least one step ahead.

If the modus operandi of a virus is just to spread, then killing its hosts is a definite no-no. 

The current (English) virus is so spreadable that it has supplanted the original version of covid in London and the south. Tomorrow, the World. 

Happy New Year and stay safe.

I'm afraid you're all going to have to worry about the variant. 

1. It affects the under 20s far more than the original.

2. It is so infectious that only a full lockdown that people obey is going to stop it.

3. On the plus side, there is no published evidence that it's more dangerous.  (Yet.)

I can see all our Australian state borders going up again.

We're used to it by now.
