It makes perfect sense, I’ve seen enough sci-fi films to see where this one is going.

Hunger games..

New variant now in Europe https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/covid-new-south-african-variant-strain-lockdown-restrictions/
Convenient…

For who?

Them ;D

Sceptical that there is another variant? If you are sceptical why are you sceptical? It was always going to happen was it not?
It's always convenient for THEM.

Which I presume means Van Morrison and his old band.

Maybe Morrison is a double agent?

Lets not get too panicked.

Yeah, its different - yeah - its obviously more transmissible than Delta.

No one has answered whether its still as lethal as Delta yet.

For instance, if it were 10 times more transmissible and 1000 times less lethal that is probably a trade off most would be happy with.

A variant with the same lethality but 50% more transmissibility than Delta is far worse for the public health situation than a virus with the same transmissibility but 50% increased lethality.

The apparent transmissibility advantage of Omicron is the big worry here.

Would be lovely if it turned out to be less lethal but that's probably a pipe dream.

Double vaccinated 6 months ago (Pfizer)

Had a pre work covid test on the 27th of Oct - negative

Felt like a head cold/sinus infection (no temp) Saturday and stayed like that till Tuesday, called off of work M/T had to take a covid test to go back to work today (they are really strict) - positive.

This evening noticed loss of smell, opened a spice jar of both Garlic and Cinnamon and nothing.

Wore my mask everywhere, never went out to socialize the past 2 months because I was swamped with work.

10 days off of work till next test on the 22.

So far all minor symptoms, doctor said the vaccine is more than likely keeping me this way.

Be Careful

Rapid test today and I am now Covid negative.

Still exhausted and a cough but feeling better than last week. Walking three floors to my flat is tiring so I will have to build up my strength again. I feel I was lucky as my vaccinations helped and couldn't imagine going through it without being vaccinated.

Keep safe and mask up.

572 in hospital,  643 it was last Friday. ICU 118 no change on a week ago.

Down to 519 as of 8pm this evening. Its was 682 on Sunday night, that's a 24% decrease in 5 days.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Used to love hearing advertisements in the states when they were promoting medication…..

Told you all the benefits, then at the very end, at about 100 mph, explained the 20 or so side effects…

Unfortunately everything has side effects

https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/rugby/munster-to-quarantine-for-10-days-on-return-from-south-africa-1.4740071

The Munster rugby squad, coaching and backroom teams will have to quarantine at home for 10 days on their arrival back in Ireland from South Africa according to Government guidelines.

The Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly confirmed that in the wake of the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron, anyone returning to the country from seven southern African countries regardless of vaccine, recovery or PCR test status will have to quarantine at home.

People will have to take two PCR tests during their quarantine period. Donnelly was asked specifically about the Munster contingent and said that the measures apply “regardless of status.”

Johann van Graan’s squad travelled to South Africa and were due to play two matches in the United Rugby Championship (URC), against the Bulls and the Lions both of which have been postponed and will be rescheduled for later in the season.

A more pressing concern for Munster is trying to get home and on Friday night there was no firm confirmation of when that would be possible. Once repatriated, a 10-day quarantine will severely disrupt preparations for the opening Heineken Champions Cup against Wasps at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Sunday, December 12th.

It would also mean that Munster would not have played a match in seven weeks ahead of their scheduled fixture against the English Premiership side.

A URC statement read: “Due to the sudden developments connected with the new Covid-19 variant (B.1.1.529) that have immediately placed a number of countries, including South Africa, on the UK and EU travel red lists, the scheduled Round 6 and 7 United Rugby Championship fixtures set to take place in South Africa over the next two weekends have been postponed and will be rescheduled later this season.

The Barbarians match is off. Munster's matches are off, cricket qualifiers are cancelled.
Not what anyone was expecting.

https://www.thejournal.ie/germany-omicron-suspected-case-covid-19-south-africa-5613843-Nov2021/?utm_source=shortlink

61 random positive cases on Dutch flight yesterday which shows how absolutely useless vaccine passports are as I assume they all produced a test or passport. All so we can prove the “new variant” is on the way and we can all be told to shit ourselves.

Is anyone shitting themselves? Is this the new symptom? Big rolls will be in short supply
