According to lab study where they used human tissue, they find omicron replicates 70 times faster in the upper respiratory tract and more than 10 times slower in the lower respiratory tract. This may be due to genes it acquired from 229E which is not found in any other covid-19 variant.

How does Omicron spread so fast? Virus may now be multiplying 70 times quicker in airways

Omicron variant may have picked up a piece of common-cold virus

So instead of Nyquil Cold And Flu, we will have Nyquil Covid, Cold, and Flu.

Not to mention we are where would we have been at minus the vaccines, maybe for all we know the process could have happened quicker without vaccines, after all it did start in one of the less vaccinated populations....just sayin

Are there explanations for why it's not found in any other covid-19 variant? 😎

So we are now upending the world for a cold.

When did the government become my doctor ?

No matter the pressure, I pass on their hastily prepared poison.

Recombination. Omi is a early covid-19 and 229E cross.

i always wonder when I read articles like this, it not being genuine Omnicron isn't anywhere near overtaking Delta yet, and even if it does it is probably a good thing it's less lethal and severe, but they will hype up cases over and over.

Doesn't anybody remember the sane people pointing out once it escaped China it was likely to infect us all sooner or later, just like everybody has had the flu or cold before too?

it's performing just as most coronaviruses do, we just put it on TV and social media 24/7 the last 2 years all with governmental insistence

I posit if the TV, news, government, and social media gave herpes the same treatment, the masses would be wanting to vaccinate, quarantine, track and restrict persons for that too.

Omnicron is the red sliver, this is from North America in Africa it's about 1/3 larger than here but Delta is still by far the dominant strain so the premise of the article seems flawed.



here's South Africa birthplace of Omnicron 56 new deaths in 60 million plus people, this is background noise totals



Again omicron is in red, here is it's ratio on the Africa continent

So, if I understand correctly . . .

A COVID-19 daddy had sex with a common cold mommy and produced hybrid mutant Omicron babies that that were less deadly than daddy and but slutty than a common cold.

Really?

CHEER! when the news media thinks they're delivering bad news with how fast Omicron is spreading.

It's GOOD NEWS!

Contract/Recover from Covid Omicron and you're immune from Covid-19 for years.

That's how I understand it. But hey, at this point, irrational fear is all they have left.

They keep saying "trust the science." Well, I do trust the science, which is why I understand that we've placed the world on lockdown for a disease that is no worse than a typical strain of the flu. And that they keep insisting on mask mandates, despite the fact that we've known all along that those masks don't help to prevent the spread of the virus. And lately, it is becoming clear that the vaccines are not very effective. They don't prevent you from catching COVID (I know; it happened to me and my family), and what little protection they might offer appears to wear off after a few months.

The locations with the highest vaccination rates are the same places that are still seeing high infection rates. Many are trying to somehow blame unvaccinated people for this, but that is totally irrational. What's happening is that the ineffective vaccines are producing a false confidence among the vaccinated, who are then going out to parties, restaurants, etc, and catching COVID. The response isn't more booster shots, because that's just the same junk vaccine that didn't work the first 2 or 3 times. The best solution is to simply get COVID and recover, because studies are also finding out that natural immunity is far superior to any of the vaccines.

Don't need scientist to figure out that anyvirus will eventually dusappear or get less harmful.
Once it's like this, all is over and we have learned to live with each other.
Viruses don't want to kill their hosts, nor do they eant you to stay home alone in bed.
The common cold scares noone, yet it is deadly to thise who have never encountered it.

This is the end of any plandemic. Finito. We have reached maxumum Nothingburgerness.
This is how Nature has rolled for millions of years.

Why should anyone inject themselves at this point with a nonworking concoction that fecks up your immune system?

Why?

Get omicron. Get it and be done with all tje crap. As it is of the corona family, you will get naturally immune to any variant.

The day is gonna come to where it's like the movie with Will Smith..."I am Legend".....We will rue the day we stuck the needle in some many so fast. When the vaccines mutate and we all go DEMOCRAT.....Shoot me in the damn head now please.

What population is that?
Because historically

Variants a are caused by mutations from the vaccine.

Happened with polio.
Doctors were warning about it and were also warning about the shots causing the body to develop ADE
Antibody Dependent Enhancement
Basically aids because the shots eliminate your immune system.

Omnicron originated supposedly in South Africa where vaccinations as shown in the picture are well less than 50%. Ergo vaccines aren't necessarily the main or only reason for variants.

Without the vax a couple of hundred thousand more people would be dead, and a similar number would have medical debt that would have put their grandchildren into the poor house.

Since SA was a low vax country its unlikely that the vax had any effect on this.

I was pointing out the timeline of COVID not its effects a subtle but distinct difference FWIW but...

Come on you think every COVID death was an actual COIVD death, forget the likely possibility hospitals played up their deaths for federal funding, just by faulty testing and/or misdiagnosis, etc. You know the same thing people are saying about possible vaccine-related deaths and injuries we are hearing about.

It's an inexact science, ESPECIALLY WITH CORONA VIRUSES

but here is Fauci's thoughts to make you feel all better

This is what happen then the common cold been a from the corona family is renamed the moronic African variant.

Plain and simple, people are now becoming afraid of the common cold.

This is what happen then the common beer been from the Corona, is renamed Modelo variant.

Plain and simple, people are now becoming afraid of the common imported beer.

We need more domestic vacc- beers.
