While I’m already on a massive downer might as well check those reports out! Where did you read that?I saw that earlier on. The hope I'm clinging to is that when you look at the case heat maps in those high rate areas the dominant group are the under 25s (particularly secondary school age) - which might suggest that we haven't seen evidence for vaccine evasion so far. The flipside is that if it is a variant that's more dangerous for kids than the original variant (which has been suggested by some reports from India) then we may be about to swap one pandemic for another one. Let's hope the vaccines can keep it suppressed.
