And of the other location, I'm not sure where the other location was, but they have to be evolving in the presence of these neutralizing antibodies that were created by the vaccine, which is basically useless in that it it's directed to the original spike protein that we don't see anymore.

Other variants will continue to come out as time goes by, and we have to be prepared for them.
