    So it is confirmed that all 4 cases of the new variant in Botswana were in fully vaccinated people. So blows a whole in the unvaccinated driving variants and further demonstrates that vaccine passports and mandates are meaningless

    A WHO source confirmed the letters Nu and Xi of the Greek alphabet had been deliberately avoided. Nu had been skipped to avoid confusion with the word "new" and Xi had been skipped to "avoid stigmatizing a region", they said.

    @MaajidNawaz
    And those 4 people caught it from who? It just manifested in them?

    But yeah, the vaccines are less effective against this variant.

    All the major variants so far including this Omicon variant have come from near-3rd world countries (South America, India, South Africa) with poor vaccine rates. It's telling the WHO has whined about other countries closing their borders to air travel from South Africa claiming "racism."

    Well that didn't take long!
    Ontario detects Canada's first two known cases of Omicron COVID-19 variant


    Sun., November 28, 2021, 5:16 p.m.
    TORONTO ó Ontario has detected Canada's first two known cases of Omicron, a new COVID-19 variant of concern.

    Health Minister Christine Elliott says both cases were found in the Ottawa area in people who had recently returned from Nigeria.

    She and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kieran Moore say Ottawa Public Health is conducting "case and contact management" and the patients are self-isolating.

    The federal government recently banned visitors from seven countries in southern Africa.

    Nigeria is not among them.

    Elliott and Moore's statement urges the federal government to take stronger action at the border, suggesting that everyone be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, not just before leaving for Canada.

    The pair say Ontario is testing all eligible positive COVID-19 samples to determine their variant.

    This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 28, 2021.

    Any time they say there's a new variant detected somewhere, it's already everywhere.

    I've seen many headlines over the months about new variants--all of them were supposed to be more transmissible and more deadly than the original strain. Only Delta has proven to be something substantial. Hoping that this one is just more of the same.

    Still going to spend Christmas with family as I did Thanksgiving. I'm sure we'll see some kind of negative press on how the holidays were responsible for the spread of this.

    We get a weekly Covid update from our Board of Ed which covers about 12 schools, 8 of which are elementary. About a month ago there were a couple weeks with only 1 case. Last week (Sat, 11-20 thru Wed 11-24) there were 15. Week before that was 24 (full week). Strangely enough, my daughter's middle school hasn't been on the list over those 2 weeks.

    Overall, though, not good. And this is before the big holidays.

    I am expecting a huge spike as the holiday gatherings will take a toll unlike last year when everyone stayed home. No ones doing that this year vaccinated or non vaccinated.

    Everyone is either vaccinated at this point or chooses not to be, so I'm over it. My wife and I just got our boosters this weekend and signed the kids up for theirs next week. If you're vaccinated you're unlikely to have a super spreader event like we had before. Even if you catch it you're unlikely to be hospitalized. I'm basically at the point that if you chose not to get vaccinated and you get seriously sick, well...that was your choice. That includes people in my own family.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I have been staying away from here because my viewpoint doesn't mesh. I am in the middle. I am vaxxed, getting my booster but I also think that vaccine at this point only allows the side effects to be minimized. Again the doom and gloom is coming. Its always going to be there. Said it months ago that we are not getting rid of this. Its going to be like the flu from 1918 which is what we get our flu shots for. Simply going to be a part of our lives every day, every year and every decade until we pass the mortal coil.

    Its amazing with what is being said about this mutation named after a Lundlum Novel. The Omnicrom Variation shoudl start Matt Damon. Anyway if you listen to anything that is being said the word "MAY" is being used. The end of the world is not hear yet but people are thinking we need to hunker down, use mask mandates, vaccine mandates, etc because we all know how well its working or has worked. The vaccine we piinned our entire hopes on lasted not even a year. Yes its better than not being vaxxed simply due to the side effects. The same experts are saying to do the same things. What we have done for 2 years and people are going "yep because they know better"

    Hey its cool if you want to sit at home on the holidays withi masks on. Maybe simply just cancel them. Its cool. You can remove yourself from society if that makes you feel safe. However just know that you will be doing that likely for the rest of your lives. This isn't going away. its a virus and some viruses simply stay here.

    You keep saying your views are different than everyone else here but then say stuff we agree with like 95% of the time.

    Iíve received all of my shots including booster and thatís what I believe. In fact was it ever stated that the vaccine did anything other than what you wroteóin most cases it prevents hospitalization and or death? IDKÖI think there is too much misinformation.
