WHO has labeled it as omicron variant.
Nations panic, travel restrictions, vaccines possibly ineffective, stock markets nose dive.
No one ask the question does possibly being more virulent mean more fatal or just more fear.




While inexplicable heart issues and effectiveness surrounds the vaccines




Anyone seeing a trend here?

Maybe so? Fauci commented once that by 2022 it would be endemic in the population. What will change between now and then to make it endemic? Nothing
The Wuhan virus and its variants are endemic to the world. Don’t punish the world population, punish those who gave us this lab enhanced virus.
It’s a war for control not a public health policy

The new Omicron variant is very dangerous, more lethal and immune against actual vaccines everybody should treat it like that.
In just a few months we will see people die like flies and piles of burning corpses in the streets.
The final battle for human survival has begun....
Will you survive? :unsure:
Sources that it’s more lethal or contagious. None of that has been established. What has been established is there is a high number of mutations on the spike protein. As of yesterday there were only 10 confirmed cases.

They are saying it's becoming the majority of cases in Southern Africa PBS news hour said. Showing how quickly it spreads and outed the Delta variant. Very alarming how quickly it dominated the cases in that region.

We must see the results. It will be weeks to a month before we see death rates. Covid is a slow killer.

The Omicron variant has evolved over a longer period of time in AIDS positives but untreated people in Africa, by trial and error the virus has became even more contagious and even immune against mono clonal antibodies this is definitly the most concerning variant because there is no cure possible at this time. It has outcompeteted the Delta variant and spreads in summer of South Africa.
No other variant could do that. Time is running out, only a world wide lockdown can buy us enough time to prepare.

I'm afraid this new variant could be a combination of HIV and the Coronavirus. :oops:
Which would be the worst case scenario, basicly the end of human health.
“Could be” no data

PBS covered this very well & went through what we really know so far. So far spreading dramatically becoming dominant variant in region.

1: According to a study with a very small pool of covid patients in South Africa (<250), unvaccinated patients constituted the bulk of those infected with the new Omicron variant, providing at least some anecdotal data that existing vaccines might still be effective against it. However, it's way too early to make that determination for sure.

2: HIV proteins have been a part of the SARS-CoV-2 genome since day one of the pandemic. Your information regarding this is almost two years out of date.

3: Four HIV proteins within the Covid genome will NOT result in people being infected with HIV.

DucknCover: I have zero tolerance for you right now. Either back up your posts with reliable sources or I will delete them.

A lot of people saying it MAY be more virulent. No data

The country has identified about 100 cases of the variant, mostly from its most populated province, Gauteng, where Johannesburg and Pretoria are located.

No unusual symptoms have been reported following infection with the B.1.1.529 variant and, as with other variants, some individuals are asymptomatic, South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) said.

Sure it should be watched but there is no data indicating it’s more lethal.
And the SA gov is still only reporting near 100 cases. That number has obviously increased since printing.,
However their is still no data to indicate this is more dangerous. Just a lot of “may be more dangerous”.
It should be watched yes but causing panic is irresponsible.
