Morons! Having Initial Mild Symptoms From A Viral Infection Does Not Mean Things Are Good! Omicron Spreading Rapidly Across The Globe. UK The Next Hotspot!
It amazing that in in this modern age with technological and scientific advancements, we have certain so-called ‘experts’ coming out with public claims about the new SARS-CoV-2 variant called Omicron that we still do not have much data about as of yet. We have morons saying that things are looking positive as initial data from South Africa shows that the new variant with more than 32 concerning spike mutations shows that most infected are only exhibiting mild symptoms and there is no need for supplemental oxygen among those hospitalized. There was no detailed analysis of the hospitalizations and most of the experts from South Africa who made the comments about hospitalization data were not even involved on the ground level in these hospitals!
Most of these hospitalizations were classified as incidental and not related to COVID-19! Most were young individuals who had gastrointestinal issues, heart issues, neurological issues etc (…..sounds familiar?) …no idiot bothered to investigate whether it was the Omicron variant causing those conditions.
Then there was the statement made by a goon that said no one had died from the Omicron so far and that was regurgitated by the numerous non-credible mainstream media and also by other so called ‘experts.’
Now on the 27th of November 8 persons were reported by South African health authorities to have died from COVID-19 disease and there were 3,220 new COVID-19 cases. On the 28th
of November, only 6 persons died from COVID-19 and there were only 2 858 new infections. On the 29th
of November the number who died from COVID-19 jumped to 25 and from then on, we had like 21, 28, 44, 25 and 21 COVID-19 deaths as the days passed. https://sacoronavirus.co.za/covid-19-daily-cases/
It was reported that almost 74 percent of sequencings showed the presence of the Omicron variant and in fact by the 2nd of December, it was said that the Omicron variant had already displaced the Delta variant in South Africa with the case-loads rising exponentially. https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/safrica-festival-halted-after-36-test-positive-covid-site-2021-12-01/
Now if there were still that many people dying daily and with Omicron being the predominant variant, can we truly believe that no one died from the Omicron variant! I would have assumed that at least half of these COVID-19 deaths were linked to the Omicron variant!
What’s worse, the data on excess deaths in South Africa would really provide some insightful perspectives. https://www.samrc.ac.za/reports/report-weekly-deaths-south-africa
The high amount of excess deaths compared to COVID-19 deaths were somewhat confusing. Further detailed investigations revealed that deaths due to sepsis, heart failures, kidney failures and general organ failure shows a strange correlation here to COVID-19.
Off course we need further investigations by the real experts out there to tell us what is really going on.
Now for more interesting news, it is emerging that viral clearance in most of those infected with the new Omicron variant in
South Africa is taking a longer period with hints that there is stronger viral persistent.
Now coming back to whatever we have learnt over the last 2 years with regards to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, mild or even asymptomatic symptoms does not mean that things are good or safe.
We have seen that in so called individuals deemed as recovered after initially having only mild symptoms, a percentage still develop acute kidney injury and will even require dialysis, some develop myocarditis and other heart issues and might even die from subsequent heart failures even though they are young and healthy, many develop various neurological issues and still a large group develops a variety of gastrointestinal issues and some even die from sepsis. I have not even touched on how the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus causes immunodeficiency and makes many susceptible to secondary infections, some fatal. We have not even touched on cancers yet and other long COVID-19 issues.
The Omicron variant could be more adapt at dismantling all our immune responses while it replicates faster and have enhanced modes of viral persistence. This is definitely not going to be good news for anyone.
With various Delta subvariants emerging, many concerning and while Omicron spreads, we could be in a situation of more co-infections involving more than two variants and the outcomes of such a scenario can be frightening.
To simply assume that Omicron is only a mild disease and to make premature statements that it does not caused any deaths so far is really shocking, especially coming from so called experts.
What is their possible motives and agenda and who is controlling them is really interesting.
Omicron Now In Almost 52 Countries Around The World With Nepal, Namibia, Croatia and Argentina Being The latest Countries Around The World To Detect The Variant
Thailand Medical News will no longer focus on coverages indicating where the Omicron variant has been detected because as far as we are concerned, in a few weeks’ time, it will be everywhere globally and would become one of the predominant circulating variants competing with the various Delta sub-variants and also newer emerging variants.
In the United Kingdom and also in the United States, the Omicron variant is spreading through community transmissions and in not more than 6 weeks’ time according to certain modelling platforms, Omicron would also become one of the predominant variants in circulation in these two countries.
UK Will Be The New Omicron Hotspot In Coming Days!
Professor Dr Tim Spector, a leading British epidemiologist who is with the King's College London told Thailand Medical News
, “In about 10 days’ time the UK could have more cases of Omicron than some countries it had put on the travel red list.”
He further added, “The official estimates are about 350-odd Omicron cases, and because the current testing is missing a lot of those, it’s probably at least 1,000 to 2,000 I would guess at the moment. And we are expecting this to be doubling about every two days at the moment, so if you do your maths-say, assumed it’s 1,000 at the moment, and you think it’s going to be doubling every two days, you can see that those numbers are going to be pretty (high) certainly in about 10 days’ time. By that time, we’ll probably have more cases than they will in some of those African countries!”
He added, “About half of all cases at the moment of Delta are being “missed” because they are not presenting with “classic” COVID symptoms of fever, new and persistent cough and a loss or change of smell or taste. Omicron is probably more, much more similar to the mild variants we’re seeing in people who have been vaccinated with Delta than anything else. And so it is going to be producing cold-like symptoms that people won’t recognize as COVID if they just believe the official government advice. But the long-term issues are really going to be scary!”
Dr Jeffrey Barrett, director of the COVID-19 genomics initiative at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, agreed this morning with those suggesting that Omicron would take over from Delta in the UK as the dominant variant of coronavirus “within a matter of weeks”.
He said, “I think we can now say that this variant is spreading faster in the UK than the Delta variant at the same time, and that’s something that I think was unclear until very recently. I am pretty confident that it’s going to take over probably in a matter of days.”
When asked about the implications of that, he said: “Well, we don’t know and that’s the really critical question, of course, is how many of those cases of which there will likely be a large number will lead to severe disease?
