Approaching 800,000 dead in the US

Pretty fucking lethal stupid
Dipshit, the communist Chinese knew what they had when they pulled RaTG13 from a bat’s ass. It was already nasty before evolving in human hosts. Homo sapiens made the mistake of being elderly and overweight. That it can be deliberately seeded depends on the knowledge of the natural reservoir. CIA (JoeXi and Fau Chi’s handlers), MI6, and other intelligence agencies linked to the military are not going to get amnesia about this possibility.

That’s some impressive gibberish there

Several researchers worldwide are suggesting that Omicron may be a positive development. Dr. Ole F. Olesen at the European Vaccine Institute thinks it is. “It can be good news,” Olesen said in response to the early data coming out of South Africa. “If it is significantly milder than the Delta-variant, it can be an advantage that the different strains outcompete each other and that Omicron becomes the dominant variant.”

According to mainstream epidemiology, mild mutants are believed to be the mechanism by which pandemics end. It is a well-known mystery that dangerous viruses suddenly disappear for no apparent reason. For instance, the Spanish flu infected a third of the world’s population between 1918 and 1920 and killed an estimated 50 million people. Then it just stopped.

The Spanish flu virus still circulates today but is much milder. The leading theory to explain this curious pattern is that the virus mutated into an innocuous variant. People who carry a virus asymptomatically tend to spread it more quickly, making it more virulent. Therefore, many scientists believe that a mild variant spread like wildfire and created a wall of herd immunity that reduced and eliminated deadlier variants.

End In Sight?​

Given how rapidly Omicron is spreading and displacing other variants, it could potentially spell the beginning of the end of the pandemic. It is still too early to draw any conclusions. More information is needed, but Dr. Arnoldo Frigessi, professor of biostatistics at the University of Oslo, estimates that Omicron could be the dominant variant between six and ten weeks after the first recorded case. If so, the deadliest leg of the pandemic may be over by the spring of 2022."

That is highly speculative. It stopped primarily because people in populations developed some level of immunity (or died) and primary reason it could be not as deadly today is because we have influenza vaccination and broad spectrum antibiotics to deal with secondary respiratory infections that were the big killer in early 20th century.

And all reports are that Omicron is about like a cold, so why all the fear? Let’s get herd immunity and be done with it.

There is not a single report like that, stop posting pure horseshit.
