    that -Omicrom - variant..reeason for concern?

    -you- and - they - should be worried indeed. but about somethign different. the virus is changing and mutating more or less on a monthly basis. BUT the vaccine - we- and -they - are using is still a 2 year old one, developed for the WUHAN type visue. Spokes -persons - for the WHO and Pharma Industry were boosting -with this vaccine it is easy to adapt and adjust- it will take a maximum of 100 days and a new improved vaccine will be ready to go onto the market for use-. So far I have never seen or heard anything about that. Big Pharma are still flogging their old crap and raking in Millions. But i also see no President,Kanzle,Premier r or anyone else who has cojones enough to tell big Pharma, adapt or the emergency registration will be pulled. which by the way ends at the end of November.. https://www.yahoo.com/news/explainer...120000624.html

    WHO -explains -why not NU or XI, the next letters in the Greek alphabet,but -Omicron.WHO explains the name of the omicron strain and the omission of two letters of the alphabet and to ME this sounds closer tpo -OMNI- which we all know means -for everybodyß.From the word OMNIBUS, meaning a transport for everybody. Is this -new - virus also now -for everybody-?
    WHO experts missed the letters nu and xi, which were next in line, since the first is too consonant with the English word new (new), and the second is similar to a common Chinese surname

    A new strain of coronavirus, identified in southern Africa, was named omicron (the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet), bypassing the 13th (nu) and 14th (xi) letters, as the World Health Organization (WHO) wanted to avoid inconvenience for native speakers of English and Chinese. WHO explanation leads The Associated Press .

    The organization explained that the letter "nu" is too consonant with the English word new. WHO spokesman Margaret Harris explained to the Corriere della Sera newspaper in a commentary to the Corriere della Sera newspaper that then in the phrase “a new version of“ nude ”there would be two very similar-sounding words and people would think that this is a new version of the coronavirus, and not about its name.

    As for the letter "xi", it was omitted to avoid confusion among those who speak Chinese, since Xi is a common Chinese surname. Harris also explained that the fact that the country has long been at the center of controversy about the origin of the coronavirus, as well as the fact that its leader is called Xi Jinping, worked in favor of abandoning the letter "xi". Thus, the name of the new strain "xi" could trigger "an unintended" anti-Chinese "reaction in the media," writes Corriere della Sera.

    In a message to the AP, WHO noted that it always tries to avoid "insulting any cultural, social, national, regional, professional or ethnic group in its designation for diseases and viruses."

    A new variant of the coronavirus, which could potentially be more dangerous than the delta strain, British scientists reported on November 24. They drew attention to the greater number of mutations in the strain, which may contribute to its faster spread and resistance to existing vaccines.

    Two days later, WHO assigned the Greek letter omicron to the strain and concluded that this type of virus could pose a threat to countries.

    Yawn! Those fearmongering doctors don't know anything and most reported cases are mild and less severe than delta variant.

    Plus the fear mongering media that has gone overboard. Pisses me off, all this panic over something so little understood. You are right, this thing could be less lethal than Delta, for all we know.

    I have read several comments by epidemiologists and disease experts who say, wait, don't panic. Time will tell how dangerous omicron is. One said halting air traffic from targeted countries to prevent the spread of omicron is like stopping mosquitoes with a picket fence. Omicron will spread, regardless.

    We need to get used to the fact that coronavirus will mutate, reinfect us, people will suffer but it is time to take it in stride and not go into a lather about it all.

    It is medical fact that viruses mutate. They mutate so they become more transmissible, as all life, viruses follow the prime directive - "Survive". At the same time they mutate, they become less dangerous. Omicron is far less lethal than the original Wuhan virus.

    The vaccines may be ineffective against it because such vaccines were engineered to be effective against only the original Red Chinese strain.

    Scientists have looked at this new mutation and what they see is frightening, we can only go on what the experts say, better be safe than sorry, if it turns out to be not as deadly as Delta then restrictions will be lifted.

    The scientists engineered this shit, then the scientists go out and misuse the media to engineer a state of fear in the general population. They gain media prestige ("We're saving lives!") and power and money. Pfizer will make $32,000,000,000 this year just with vaccines, which, overall, have a negligible effect on public health and a negative effect on civilizational stability.

    Trusting Scientists today is no different than trusting the Religious Authorities during the Inquisitions of centuries past.

    Scientists need to take Responsibility for their Knowledge, that they not abuse their expertise to create bio-weapons destructive to human beings. Science needs a code of ethics.

    Science needs to be brought under Control, so they do not create Atomic Bombs, Viral killers and other things harmful to life.

    Once more - observing standard hygienic precautions will work at any case. Masks indoor public, washing hands, keeping distance.

    Pharmaceuticals needs to be nationalized so they work for the people... not the damn shareholders. Their main objective is treatment... not cure... so people stay sick and seek treatments. It's big money.

    That's exactly why cancer has not been cured.

    While idiots are out there claiming BLM and ANTIFA morons are just causing trouble for the sake of causing trouble the really dangerous people are still running around free. Hang, Dr. Fauci, arrest Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey. Fauci and Gates for creating Covid, Zuckerberg and Dorsey for putting out false information and covering up the truth.

    Yup. I heard many breakthroughs on curing cancers are often bought out by big pharmaceuticals and the inventions or discoveries are shelved or killed.

    Is "Hang" a person or are you actually saying "Hang Dr Fauci"?

    Hang Dr. Fauci, like by the neck. I think that someone put him up to the development of Covid but he is responsible.
