This thread is about Omnicron isn't it? I know of no deaths attributed to Omnicron in the US to date. And surveys of waste water throughout the US show it's most likely been here a fair while longer than Nov 26th when it was first announced. It would have had to have been to be so prevalent in those waste water surveys taken. It's hiding in the billion common colds estimated in the US per year. And if we can't tell the difference that's a good thing. It can just join the ranks of over 200 other common cold viruses.

Meanwhile the reports out of SA are it's still milder than delta by a considerable amount and that's a positive thing. And lets hope that positive trend continues.

But let's all keep our guard up and stop misinformation like the kind Bidum spread just the other day on national TV stating "get vaccinated so you don't spread the disease to anyone else" which following the science shows is false and misinformation as the vaxxed can and do spread covid. Funny thing is he was saying the same things in late July. And he's still at the misinformation game despite CDC briefings. No wonder people don't know what to believe.

The thread is about covid19 omicron variant,

If you don't recognise the symptoms you could end up very sick.......

Your assuming that omicron is harmless when governments all over Europe are About to Lockdown again,

650,000, people had booster shots in the UK the other day 650,000 in a day......

25million already boosted.....

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/25m-boosters-in-uk-as-public-urged-to-get-boosted-now

Take care all 😷😉💉

Well it'll be interesting in a month or two to see how that all plays out in the vaxxed case outcomes in the UK covid data as well as the adverse event reporting system. So South Africa is lying about it being milder huh?

Unlike you AI I have a completely open mind on this virus,

I don't know how anyone can say anything definitive about how this is going to go,

Covid could mutate into a mild or an even bigger threat than it already is,

Then there's another pandemic just around the corner,

All cards are on the table , mankind is in big trouble......

I just find it all very interesting,

Not stressing at all ,too busy to stress,

Flat out at work and grandkids keep me on the run.....

To be honest , everyone here is  that busy ,we don't want to open up our borders without some control,

We have a labour shortage here, paying wait staff $55 an hour I believe,

We haven't been affected very much at all by this pandemic,

I feel very sorry for those who have,

Take care all 😷😉💉

P.S Africa hasn't really been affected at all by covid have they ?!!

governments do have a vested interest in not coming Clean.....don't know why!!!!!!

Only in CLOWN WORLD would being positive and looking at the positives be construed as not being open minded.

Well I decided to go with the least harsh reply and added some levity while conveying the overall message and sentiment. Entirely appropriate for you.

For those of you that do not think Omnicron is a big deal, then why are you here posting?  Why be here at all?  To just post on other peoples posts?  That seems odd.  Just curious.  If I wasn't concerned about the virus and wanting to chat with people around the world on it, then I wouldn't be on here.  But I am worried so I am on here.  So I don't get it.

As opposed to ZERO positive anything posted from the sad negative media circus clown.

Very weak deflecting on your part might I add, everyone knows you are just a positive ray of sunshine right.

So I guess that's the most negative things you could find in the negative media big top huh Carbonco.

Given hospitalisation trends in the West, we may not see extreme pressures on hospitals as during second wave, say experts

The daily new cases in South Africa, Denmark, Norway and the UK — countries with the largest documented omicron burdens — have exceeded their pandemic records. But hospitalisation and deaths appear relatively low, health officials and experts have said.South Africa has over the past week recorded an average 30 daily deaths compared with the over 370 daily deaths during the peak of its delta-driven wave in July, and over 500 during the peak of its beta-driven wave in January.

Doctor treating Omicron in South Africa: 'We are over the curve'

https://www.cnn.com/videos/health/2021/12/20/south-african-doctor-omicron-coronavirus-cases-decline-newday-vpx.cnn

 In South Africa, we’ve seen a delinking of cases from hospital admissions. With the delta variant, the hospitalization rate links closely to the case rate. When we look at the omicron surge, we have more cases compared to hospital admissions. In South Africa, there are fewer hospital admissions, fewer deaths, and ICUs are under control.

All of those are dated 12/20 so the latest news.

A balanced perspective with all points of view is good thing on a discussion forum. We don't really want a hive mentality now do we?
