What gets me is why won't the SA and Brazilian strains do the same thing? Their increase in transmissibility is pretty much the same.

I'll just put this right here:

"...One study from South Africa published in pre-print format last month found the country’s indigenous mutation, 501Y.V2, showed “substantial or complete escape” from the human body’s neutralizing antibodies that target Covid-19.

“These data highlight the prospect of re-infection” and may “foreshadow reduced efficacy” of vaccines...."
