Brazil And Sweden Finds Omicron Variant Which Is Now In 19 Countries Outside Of Africa. 32 Countries In Africa Might Have The Omicron Now!
: Brazil and Sweden reported cases of the Omicron variant in the last 24 countries bring the tally of countries outside of the African continent with identified cases of the new variant to 19 countries.
These countries include Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Outside of the African continent, another 7 countries have suspected cases of the variant and are pending genomic sequencing results.
In the African continent, cases have been identified in South Africa, Botswana, Nigeria, Namibia, Zambia, Angola, Cameroon and Malawi with another 24 out of the 54 countries in the African continent having suspected cases.
Experts are predicting that within a week, the whole African continent is expected to have the Omicron variant and within 4 to 6 weeks, heavy surges are expected in the whole African continent with the Omicron being the predominant variant as in the case of South Africa that is now witnessing a exponential surge and almost 78 percent of the genomic sequencings of new cases are turning up the Omicron variant indicating that the new variant has displaced the Delta variant.
Omicron Cases Now Multiplying In Countries That First Detected The Variant
Alarmingly, countries that first detected a single or couple cases of the Omicron variant are now seeing more cases emerge, possibility indicating that the new variant is indeed more transmissible and spreading fasts.
The United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada are among some countries witnessing more Omicron cases emerge. The UK now has 22 conformed cases with a few hundred pending genomic sequencing results.
At the rate things are going, the United Kingdom hopefully could see the Omicron variant displacing the Delta variant in about 5 to 6 weeks’ time and also the whole of Europe could be infected with the new variant. Thailand Medical News will be providing constant Omicron Updates
especially with regards to the situation in Europe and the United States.
WHO, Biden Administration, America and British Mainstream Media Spreading Fake News About Mild Symptoms Of New Variant And Inoculations!
Interestingly and strangely, the WHO, the Biden Administration, various American and British mainstream media are spreading unproven statements that the new Omicron variant only causes mild symptoms.
Even the South African doctor who first identified the variant and is only a researcher who is not involved in clinical practice at any hospitals strangely when on mainstream media to say that the variant was only causing mild symptoms when in reality according to data from the South African Ministry Of Health, as of the last few hours, 78 percent of all genomic sequencing is showing the new Omicron variant and about a 40 percent of those are all hospitalized with most in critical care. The same of the first few cases that were identified in Hong Kong, Israel and UK.
Interestingly after Thailand Medical News brought this issue the day before, yesterday Dr Anthony Fauci went live on media to state that its too early to say as to whether the new variant causes mild symptoms and a lot of emerging data is not clear!
Also, many idiots are still proposing inoculations and boosters despite the fact we have no validated data to date as to whether or not these inoculations really work against the new variant.
Yesterday the Moderna’s CEO issued a statement saying that the current COVID-19 shots will probably not work on the new variant. https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/breaking-moderna-s-chief-admits-that-current-vaccines-might-be-ineffective-against-omicron-and-foresees-a-worrying-pandemic-state
To make matters worse, most of the cases being reported involve individuals who have been travelling and double inoculations to meet travel criteria in most countries.
Also, alarmingly, some experts are speculating that the phenomena of ADE (Antibody Dependent Enhancement) is more apparent in infections with the new variant and also another worrying phenomenon involving viral priming by earlier exposure to the spike proteins of the other SARS-CoV-2 lineages might aggravate the situation. Scientists in Massachusetts are currently studying this in detail and a study to confirm as to whether these occurrences are like to happen should be read the coming week.
There is a concerted effort by groups with vested interest to downplay the seriousness of the new Omicron variant and also its origins and Thailand Medical News will be providing an exclusive expose of this.
