A birthday party for a 60 year old man in the UK was a superspreader event for the Omicron variant of COVID. Fifteen of the eighteen attendees were tested positive for COVID, with every one of them being fully vaccinated, and most having already received booster shots. This, in my mind, is sold evidence that the vaccine doesn’t do a thing.

It seems that, with all of the breathless panic over this Omicron variant, we should keep in mind that its most common symptoms are a cough, fatigue, and a runny nose. Now the powers that be keep saying that the vaccine wards off serious symptoms, but the only person in the US who has been hospitalized with this variant was fully vaccinated, so there is that.

Of the first 43 people in the US with this variant:

  • 40 were symptomatic.
  • 34 were fully vaccinated.
  • 25 were under the age of 40.
  • 14 had traveled internationally in the past two weeks.
  • 14 received boosters.
  • 6 had shortness of breath.
  • 6 had previously had a coronavirus infection.
  • 3 lost their sense of taste or smell.
  • 1 was hospitalized (for two days). The one hospitalized was vaccinated.
  • 33 had a cough
  • 24 complained of fatigue
  • 22 had a runny nose

So we are in a panic over an illness that we used to refer to as a “chest cold.” That was before we began testing everyone. This is just stupid.

Meanwhile, the liberal press in South Florida is demanding that DeSantis restore the COVID lockdown.

Considering coronaviruses, in general, are the 3rd leading cause of “common colds” (adenoviruses and rhinoviruses are the top 2) and the leading cause of “common cold” in middle-school children, what do people think will happen?? BTW, this is 10th-grade HS biology.

In general, viruses lose their “dangerousness” as they mutate. Meaning that as the virus mutates (to survive), it tends to becomes more contagious but less dangerous.

    Yes. Exactly. It’s mutating naturally into a flu or cold-like illness. This should be cause for celebration. But they can’t leave well enough alone and keep trying to jab everyone, including healthy kids, and thereby placing unnatural evolutionary pressure on the virus, which could have some less than desirable outcomes. Aw crap.

They are desperately trying to feed the plandemic frenzy — keep the ignorant ones frightened at all costs. But it’s wearing thin on society. And that is worrisome because there must be something else in the works.

It’s not the Omicron variant, it’s the OMGicron variant. You heard it here first. 🙂

    The media would like everyone to believe it’s the Omigeddon variant, requiring drastic measures from Uncle Sugar and Phizer Fauci to save us all.

    I’ve been calling it the OH, MY CRON! Variant for a while now – pretty much since it turned up in the news, what with South African officials saying it was the sniffles and everyone else saying it must surely be the Omega Man Variant that would wipe out humanity, This Time For Sure!

Omicron doesn’t even sound as bad as a chest cold. 6 out of 43 (14%) had shortness of breath (which could be congestion, but not necessarily).

22 had a runny nose, pretty much 50%. Sounds like a head cold. A cough can go with that if there’s postnasal drip.

As someone “allergic to everything that is now or once was alive” that sounds like any day of the week.

Cough, fatigue, runny nose – get that every year.
It’s that new & frightening virus called “Seasonal allergies” or more specifically, Juniper pollen.

Now, it seems, there’s a confirmed report of someone in the UK dying with, mind you, with the ZOMC! Variant.
No report of what comorbidities he might have had. Multiple stab wounds? Late-stage cancer? Massive trauma from being hit by a truck? Totalitarian minds don’t want to know.
