It’s a fact — however inconvenient for wealthy nations to admit- omicron will be first of many variants until vaccine internationalism replaces vaccine nationalism and a virtuous “arms race”is deployed to jab the planet.

The CDC just slightly changed its recommendations for booster, saying all adults "should" get boosted six months after the second dose. Before the CDC said people should get a booster if they're 50 & up and those 18 & up "may" get one.

The same people who called Trump's pandemic travel ban "xenophobic" or "racist" are suddenly silent about Biden's travel ban. A dozen non-African countries with confirmed Omicron cases are not included in the ban.

Switzerland rightly proud of the fact that they haven't sent their army to war abroad since 1515. Don't tell me I have to relearn my history now.
This is fantastic. Switzerland has repeatedly accidentally invaded Lichtenstein, usually because they forgot where the border is.

DC lifted the indoor mask mandate last week. Latest news suggests that may well be short lived.

Antidotal but a hopeful sign. On Morning Joe earlier, the ⁦@NIH⁩ director expressed optimism that vaccines and antivirals should show an effectiveness against new variants. We should stay calm, prepare aggressively, and follow science. reuters.com/world/africa/saf…

This is not surprising news. But we need more information before we know what this really means. Patience and humility - a couple of things COVID has taught us.

As grateful as I am that the jury got it right in convicting the defendants in the murder of #AhmadArbery, it's troubling to realize how all three nearly got away with it. The original local prosecutor effectively aided in a coverup that only fell apart due to a leaked video.
