We need to call this the upper caste Covid-19 variant. 98% of immigrants from India in the USA are from the upper castes. Thus it almost certainly came from upper castes – maybe H1B visa holders- in the San Francisco Bay Area, but now it’s in Michigan.
This was the news on April 4, 2021, but Biden’s not stopping travel from India until May 4, 2021.
“STANFORD HEALTH CARE IN THE NEWS
KRON4: Double mutant COVID-19 variant detected in Bay Area
April 04, 2021
A new COVID-19 variant, described as the “India” variant or “double mutant,” was identified in the Bay Area by the Stanford Clinical Virology Lab last week. This variant has the L452R mutation, which has recently caused massive outbreaks in California, as well as another significant spike mutation, E484Q. “ Video: https://stanfordhealthcare.org/newsroom/news/shc-in-the-news/2021/double-mutant-covid-19-variant-detected-in-bay-area.html
This variant seems to have been found in India by last October.
Better late than never? It will reduce those from India coming to the USA for medical care, but the virus is already in the USA. It will merely reduce those coming from India, because there are lots of loopholes, though it’s unclear if H1B workers will be allowed to come or not.
Just like last year, they allow it to enter and spread before taking action. Pelosi was hanging out in San Francisco China Town last year even after the Trump Administration had warned of the dangers, and Fauci was saying don’t wear masks (until it spread around more). Did it come due to Biden lifting Trump’s partial immigrant ban? Who knows? No one seems to care, either. Americans are last in their own country. People from India are coming across the border illegally too. On February 24, 2021, Biden lifted Trump’s Proclamation 10014 which was entitled “Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Present a Risk to the United States Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Outbreak), as extended by section 1 of Proclamation 10052 of June 22, 2020 (Suspension of Entry of Immigrants and Nonimmigrants Who Present a Risk to the United States Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Outbreak), and section 1 of Proclamation 10131 of December 31, 2020 (Suspension of Entry of Immigrants and Nonimmigrants Who Continue To Present a Risk to the United States Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Outbreak),” because Biden hates Americans.

Excerpt from White House Proclamation:
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), within the Department of Health and Human Services, working in close coordination with the Department of Homeland Security, has determined that the Republic of India is experiencing widespread, ongoing person-to-person transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The World Health Organization has reported that the Republic of India has had more than 18,375,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The magnitude and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Republic of India is surging; the Republic of India accounts for over one-third of new global cases, and the number of new cases in the Republic of India is accelerating at a rapid rate. There have been more than 300,000 average new daily cases in the Republic of India over the past week. A variant strain of the virus, known as B.1.617, is also circulating in the Republic of India, along with other variant strains, including B.1.1.7, first detected in the United Kingdom, and B.1.351, first detected in the Republic of South Africa. The CDC advises, based on work by public health and scientific experts, that these variants have characteristics of concern, which may make them more easily transmitted and have the potential for reduced protection afforded by some vaccines.
After reviewing the public health situation within the Republic of India, CDC has concluded that proactive measures are required to protect the Nation’s public health from travelers entering the United States from that jurisdiction.
Given the determination of CDC, working in close coordination with the Department of Homeland Security, described above, I have determined that it is in the interests of the United States to take action to restrict and suspend the entry into the United States, as nonimmigrants, of noncitizens of the United States (“noncitizens”) who were physically present within the Republic of India during the 14‑day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including sections 212(f) and 215(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f) and 1185(a), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, hereby find that the unrestricted entry into the United States of persons described in section 1 of this proclamation would, except as provided for in section 2 of this proclamation, be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and that their entry should be subject to certain restrictions, limitations, and exceptions. I therefore hereby proclaim the following:
Section 1. Suspension and Limitation on Entry. The entry into the United States, as nonimmigrants, of noncitizens who were physically present within the Republic of India during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States is hereby suspended and limited subject to section 2 of this proclamation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.
