Omicron C19 variant symptoms 'extremely mild', says doctor who 'discovered' it. She also suggested the UK may be panicking unnecessarily about the new Covid strain. metro.co.uk/2021/11/28/omicr…

Things a competent, credible leader would say: —The virus will be endemic. —We’ve sacrificed enough. —There will always be cases and new variants. Denying this comes at extreme cost. —Civil liberties must be preserved for all. —Live life without fear.

May I politely but firmly suggest that if you do not understand how anyone could have an issue with being forced to wear a mask that you keep your opinion to yourself? If you do not understand, you do not understand. You do not have the right to tell someone else that...

With Omicron, therapeutics are once again missing from the Covid conversation. Molnupiravir & Paxlovid both block virus replication and thus work across variant strains. Fluvoxamine acts on a common inflammatory pathways so would logically work with omicron infections as well.
And because fluvoxamine is not a direct anti-viral, it's efficacy is not impacted by variant-type. Fluvoxamine is worth trying in a shared-decision between medical provider and patient

When it comes to kids & #COVID19, the data are reassuring. But our measures have caused much harm. Please see our OpEd with @TracyBethHoeg & dr’s Jen Grant/Martha Fulford We hope it’s informative and balanced. nationalpost.com/opinion/opi…

Cases in Belgium are the highest they’ve ever been, one month into a reinstated mask mandate & despite 87.2% of adults being fully vaccinated, but the good news is that governments, experts and the media are still pretending that mask mandates & vaccine passports can “stop COVID”

Large nat immunity study in Qatar. Of 353K primary infections, only 1300 reinfections. Of those reinfections, 90% lower chance of hosp or dying than an initial infection. Echos Israeli study. Trust in public health is being lost bc this kind of data continues to be ignored.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the media latched onto *good* news like this rather than incessantly creating panic? Also, one doesn't need to be a virologist to recognize patterns; it seems unlikely travel bans will be anything but harmful at this point.
Good news for your morning. “The new Omicron variant of the Coronavirus results in MILD disease, WITHOUT prominent symptoms.” -Angelique Coetzee, the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association.

Do not despair, for this is the last gasp of insanity by Gov’t and PH leaders worldwide. Don’t be saddened; be emboldened. Don’t retreat; push forward and bring other converts with you. We end this.

I have no idea why anyone is worried about this new variant spreading in South Africa — they have a mask mandate, and as we know, mask mandates immediately stop COVID in its tracks
