virus that have not mutated in this particular variant, so they should be just as effective against this new variant as the previous variance. in cisco dozens of people who flew to amsterdam today from south africa are believed to have covid-19 hundreds of passengers were tested and the dutch government has banned all air travel from southern africa pfizer and moderna are already testing their vaccines against the new variant visor says it will have more concrete answers on the effectiveness and about two weeks and modified the vaccine if necessary new york's governor issued a state of emergency today. it allows health officials to limit non-essential procedures to ensure hospital capacity. and if you have questions about covid-19 vaccines get always ask our vaccine team. just go to abc 7 news.com slash vaccine and click on on the big blue box. happening now los angeles police have declared a tactical alert after another smash and grab at a high-end store tonight.
