Omicron is in the USA. -covid19 is airborne -don’t share indoor air -wear a n95 mask -get vaccinated -get boosted
Detection of Omicron today is reminiscent of early days of pandemic Lack of detection doesn’t mean absence of spread Even when SARS2 had been detected across many nations, it was discussed as though it was only in particular nations Its very likely more widespread than we know

Needs to be said: banning travel from African countries but not from other nations with confirmed cases of Omicron variant is racist

As noted by @Tuliodna these viruses bear a remarkable constellation of mutations in the spike protein that are concerning in terms of predicted immune escape coupled with increased transmissibility. 6/16

Prof @Tuliodna is giving an insightful overview of the #NewVariant #B11529

🧵 Why some vaccines stop transmission & others don’t: Vaccines that stop transmission are often against viruses that replicate internally first and only then transmit (like measles). So if the vaccine stops internal replication, it stops transmission. For COVID vaccines… 1/

This is by no means a complete discourse on immunity and differences in transmission vs disease. But this is one reason why a vaccine against a virus like measles will stop spread while a vaccine against SARS2 or flu may not do so as well. 4/

If people stopped whining and just wore effective masks consistently, we could be like Japan or Taiwan too. Effective masks are tight-fitting like N95, FFP2 or FFP3, or a surgical mask with a mask brace or tight cloth mask on top. #vaccinate #MaskUp #ventilation #filtration

If people working full-time jobs still need food stamps to get by, they're not the ones leeching off the government. Their employers are.

.@mnhealth .@CDCgov Please tell the public that sarscov2 is airborne Please
Chris Whitty asks the public to raise their glasses this Christmas to the scientists who developed drugs and vaccines. I look forward to when we are asked to toast the scientists who demonstrated that #COVIDisAirborne and showed the benefits of masks, ventilation, filtration etc.

#Omicron Variant Tracker from @GISIAD. WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES! Italy, Belgium, Israel 🇮🇹🇧🇪🇮🇱 (+ UK??) have joined Botswana, S Africa & Hong Kong in detecting #B11529. Let's thank those who rapidly share viral genome data 👏 #OpenScience gisaid.org/hcov19-variants/

the next 8-12 weeks are going to be difficult COVID wise. get your booster, get rapid tests, and call for an end to mass death. if there is any point in the year you want to avoid or delay gatherings, this time period is it - even while vaccinated.

This is good news. Vaccination Does Not last indefinitely- like the usa has said…
As coronavirus cases increase, the Commission has proposed new travel rules. These include a 9-month validity for vaccine certificates for travel and that rules on travel be linked to an individual's health risk, rather than their departure country. politi.co/3r9XJGL

6).....since it is likely that one 'variant-booster' would do the job. Our B-cells can be retrained to recognize both, the old version and the variant, and it doesn't take much to do that.

4) We need to first figure out how widespread it is, how well it escapes neutralizing antibodies (assumption: very well), what its R0 is, how well it does against Delta and if it can cause severe disease in vaccinated or recovered individuals.
