A trending video has surfaced on social media where a lady was seen giving a man the beating of his life as onlookers refused to separate them.

It was clearly a role reversal as the lady, holding a bag on one hand was seen flinging the man down several times forcefully.

Brutal lady beats man

The incident happened in one of the Asian countries. No one knows what could have led to the fight.

The video was posted by Nollywood actress, Queeneth Hilbert on her Instagram page.

While people watched, the lady, with no underwear on, was tearing the sorry man apart, as she rained blows on his face.

An elated Hilbert wrote after posting the video: “Like what did I just watch ? 😱 Drop the motherfuckin bag bitch 🤦‍♀️ Tag someone who can do this 👆”

The video has garnered thousands of views and lots of comments, with the women happy that a ‘weaker vessel’ has pummeled a man to submission in a one-sided fight.

Comedia OkonLagos wrote: “Hmmmm… It’s fun and games now. It would be a different ball game if the reverse was the case.”

From Mu, Delta, IHU to NeoCov, here is a list of the many variants of coronavirus

From Mu Delta IHU to NeoCov here is a list of the many variants of coronavirus

 

The deadly coronavirus emerged from a wet market in Wuhan during the year 2019. Over two years and the world is still battling the virus and its variants. Here is a list of the variants

Mu variant

The ‘Mu’ variant was first reported in the United States during January 2021. The cases only numbered in the single digits.

The World Health Organisation continues to classify ‘Mu’ as a ‘variant of interest’ globally.

 

Alpha variant

The Alpha variant of coronavirus is believed to have gained ‘skills’ to successfully block the ‘innate immune system response.’

A research states that the variant blocks the airways sensors, thus stopping the process where these sensors ‘warn’ the immune system about the presence of a virus in the body.

Since the variant has learnt how to block the functioning of the sensors, the body is unable to produce any anti-viral protein interferon.

 

Beta variant

A scientist from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a member of Sage claimed, John Edmunds, warned that the Beta variant  may be able to evade Covid vaccines.

“The Beta variant has remained a threat throughout. It is probably less infectious than the Delta variant that is spreading here in the UK at the moment. Where it has an advantage is that it is able to escape the immune response to a better extent,” he said.

 

Gamma variant

The Gamma variant was first discovered in Brazil.

Samples of a study collected in Manaus between November 2020 and January 2021, highlighted that the Gamma variant is 1.4–2.2 times more transmissible.

It further showed that it is capable of evading 25–61 per cent of inherited immunity from previous coronavirus diseases.

 

Lambda variant

The variant was first reported in Peru during December 2020. As per NHS, the main symptoms include high temperature, continuous cough, a loss or change in the sense of smell or taste.

The Delta variant of coronavirus was responsible for a wave of cases in most countries. It was first identified in India and it led to a second wave in the nation.

 

Delta variantCDC claimed that the Delta variant is twice as contagious as earlier variants; and might could cause more severe illness.

Those affected by the Delta variant experience fever, cough, loss of taste, smell, as well as extreme tiredness. Sore throat, headache and diarrhea are also less common symptoms.
