And so it begins.
Coming off of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend Americans find themselves on the verge of losing more freedoms as federal and state governments start screaming “the sky is falling” over the new CoVid-19 variant Omicron.
The hysteria began on Friday when the Dow Jones index lost 2.5% or close to a 1,000 points over the new plague. That was followed up by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issuing executive orders that banned elective surgery in state hospitals because of a suspected surge.
To be honest Gov. Hochul’s vaxx mandate for state health workers has decimated staffing levels to the point where they can’t get enough nurses for these routine procedures. It has nothing to do with the new variant.
Mind you, no Omicron cases have been found in the US as of Monday.
Yet the Biden administration has banned all travel from eight African countries, which now anyway is not racist unlike when former President Donald Trump halted travel from China early on in the pandemic.
What are the worries with the Omicron variant?
Well according to a South African doctor who has treated patients with the variant, “Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee told reporters.
She said, in total, about two dozen of her patients have tested positive for Covid-19 with symptoms of the new variant. They were mostly healthy men who turned up “feeling so tired”. About half of them were unvaccinated.
So to recap, we have a new CoVid-19 variant that is milder than the Delta variant and its principle diagnosis is fatigue.
That did not stop White House medical czar Dr. Anthony Fauci from the airways over the weekend to propagate additional misinformation concerning the Omicron variant.
“Right now, what we have is we have the window into the mutations that are in this new variant. And they are troublesome in the fact that there are about 32 or more variants in that very important spike protein of the virus, which is the business end of the virus,” Fauci said.
“And that it might evade immune protection that you would get, for example, from the monoclonal antibody or from the convalescent serum after a person’s been infected and possibly even against some of the vaccine-induced antibodies,” he said.
“So it’s not necessarily that that’s going to happen, but it’s a strong indication that we really need to be prepared for that,” he added.
What a wonderful word salad Fauci produces, however it actually means nothing. Once again he doesn’t know, but will use the opportunity to fear monger once again.
I believe I do have the Omicron variant. How do I know?
Because I am extremely tired of all this BS. That’s how I know.
