    We'd better hope Omicron is not as dangerous as Delta and Vanilla Flavored COVID, because it's spreading much faster.

    Scientists in South Africa say omicron is at least three times more likely to cause reinfection than previous coronavirus variants such as beta and delta, according to a preliminary study published Thursday.

    Statistical analysis of some 2.8 million positive coronavirus samples in South Africa, 35,670 of which were suspected to be reinfections, led researchers to conclude that the omicron mutation has a “substantial ability to evade immunity from prior infection.”

    That would also be a blow to the "natural immunity" crowd.

    It's also spreading twice as fast as Delta, which was already an increase from Vanilla:

    Underscoring growing concerns about Omicron, scientists in South Africa said on Friday that the newest coronavirus variant appears to spread more than twice as quickly as Delta, which had been considered the most contagious version of the virus.

    Omicron’s rapid spread results from a combination of contagiousness and an ability to dodge the body’s immune defenses, the researchers said, but the contribution of each factor is not yet certain.

    I posted an article written by the chair of the South African Medical Association who said governments are overreacting to the omicron variant.

    And let me be clear: nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants the extreme action the UK government has taken in response to it.

    No one here in South Africa is known to have been hospitalised with the Omicron variant, nor is anyone here believed to have fallen seriously ill with it.

    This variant doesn't scare me. The variant does appear milder at least from initial data. The vaccines still appear to work on it. Not scared.

    Congratulations on your ability to post a link.

    None of it contradicts that we won't know how severe it actually is for weeks, despite how much you want to say otherwise.

    Those of us who have had Covid and been vaccinated should also get the boosters to be considered fully vaccinated.

    The borax baths to "detox" from the COVID vaccine are a particularly amusing and extremely dangerous one.
