An Update:

“I have not seen reports of Omicron-related deaths yet,” WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told reporters in Geneva. “We’re collecting all the evidence, and we will find much more evidence as we go along. The more countries ... keep testing people, and looking specifically into the Omicron variant, we will also find more cases, more information, and, hopefully not, but also possibly deaths.”

It's really a shame that WHO kowtowed (choice of word intentional) to its masters in Beijing and skipped over "Xi", which was the next letter on the predetermined list; what a victory for the Truth in Advertising crowd that would have been...

Calling omicron xi would have added some unintended controversy. WHO didn't need that. Thanks for bringing up the story. :)

Xi should take a bow; his guys cooked it up!

It was more likely the CIA tampering with Wuhan experiments.

I like the theory that omicron is the result covid 19 hybridizing with the common cold which makes it easier to catch but seldom fatal.

The media Hysterics love any mention of a NEW variant...gives them something to talk about besides Trump and Biden 24/7.

It's useless to remind the media that very often pandemics mutate and in so doing weaken.

I am enjoying following this story because it does show the virus starting to weaken. The media loves to push fear because fear outsells everything else.

Good news?

Those who have recovered from the Omicron coronavirus strain may have a fourfold increased immunity to Delta, according to scientists from South Africa.

Experts noted that there is every reason to believe that the Omicron strain could strengthen human immunity against the Delta variant and reduce its ability to re-infect. They examined 13 patients, seven of which were vaccinated against coronavirus with Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson compounds. Eleven patients were affected by Omicron.

Examining the antibody response, scientists found that participants who had contracted the Omicron variant had a more than four-fold (4.4) increase of neutralisation against the Delta variant two weeks after the research started. Apart from that, the patients were said to have a 14-fold increase in protection against reinfection by Omicron.

Last week, the head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) office in the Russian Federation, Dr Melita Vujnovich, suggested that the Omicron strain could become a "live vaccine" against COVID-19 and help defeat the pandemic. According to her, while this outcome is possible, there are not yet enough patients infected with Omicron to conduct a study.
