The EMA official raised concerns that a strategy of giving boosters every four months hypothetically poses the risk of overloading people's immune systems and leading to fatigue in the population.

Omicron’s 50 genetic changes include more than 30 on the spike protein, the exposed part of the virus that binds with human cells. Scientists expect these changes to make it more transmissible than the dominant Delta variant and more likely to evade the immune protection provided by vaccines or previous infection.

Omicron required a booster because it is so different to Delta. The vaccines only gave around 70% coverage.
The next variant may not be so different.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been diagnosed with heart lesions after recovering from Covid-19 at the Africa Cup of Nations. The Arsenal forward was ruled out of Gabon’s 1-1 draw against Ghana on Friday.

The “cardiac lesions” were found in a check by Confederation of African Football (CAF) medical officials, the Gabonese FA said in a statement. Officials examined Aubameyang after he returned following a positive Covid test. Two of his Gabon teammates, forward Axel Meyé and midfielder Mario Lemina, were both also found to have the same issue.

Joe public isn’t going through these extensive tests when they “get over” covid. Covid is going to leave a long lasting legacy and devastating impact on our health services and peoples health.

Plenty of work for the scientists! This is not a 1 size fits all. The risk factors have to be distilled further.

Omicron up near our throats will always out-compete a variant that goes deeper into our lungs (and would hence be more dangerous)

Maybe not but I’m sure many other professional athletes , who had Covid , had them as well and nothing detected. Typical Scaremongering nonsense !!

Absenteeism at work at 30% since we started back. I heard on news 8k teachers out with covid out of 27k nationwide in Republic which is also around 30%. Expected to get worse so not sure how the country stays open in these circumstances.

Probably by reducing isolation period further, watch this space

Reducing to 5 then

I'm sure you are right. But if half the people get Omicron and 2% of them have problems then 1% of the population has a long term issue and that would represent a significant increase in demand for medical services. I am not sure what the numbers really are, but neither are you.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

With some of his critics in the party pushing for a vote of no confidence in him, Johnson attempted to rally support by ending all remaining Covid restrictions in England, including mandatory face masks and working from home guidance.

Stormont basically closed out the Covid chapter today for us up here.

Good riddance.

Freedom of information revelation

Deaths from COVID-19 with no other underlying causes
https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/deathsfromcovid19withnootherunderlyingcauses?s=09

127,704 excess deaths above the five-year average

Total deaths from covid alone -  17,371   ???
    Of this number 13,597 were 65 or over
    Of this number, 3,774 were under 65

Average age of death in UK from covid in 2021 - 82.5 years (which is higher than the average life expectancy in the UK)
