I think you may have misinterpreted the data.
It's early days, but despite the fact this variant is massively outperforming the other variants for transmission. It is resulted in hospital admissions more similar to the caserates of the early variants.
This could suggest it is milder.
The graph is clearly showing that it is most likely to follow the path of the first variants and not the dreaded Delta in terms of hospitalizations.
In terms of spread, it's likely more potent than Delta.
Also, the Dr Coetzee, who discovered it, has stressed that it has milder symptoms despite the faster spread.
The more variants there are the weaker they become, isn’t that the norm with viruses?
Yep , so science tells us .
What science doesn't tell us is why am I liable in the UK to a £200 fine if I go into Tesco's without a mask but it's fine for me to not be wearing one sitting in Wimpy ( other burger chains are available ) where I can catch Covid just as easily .
Every adult in the UK will be offered a 3rd jab by the end of January with 13 confirmed Omicron cases in England , they've rolled this out well quick .
How can we take stats seriously when they're from largely unvaccinated countries though? Of the over-12s we have 81% double jabbed, and 31% triple jabbed, if that doesn't afford us significant protection then we may as well give up.
*Just been to Tesco and all the staff are wearing masks again, and about 3/4 of the customers.
Also, just seen the boss of Morrisson's on the news, he says they won't enforce the law, they won't stop people not wearing masks from entering their stores and they won't refuse to serve them, as it's "the police's job". I wonder if his staff apprehend shoplifters, or prevent gangs of schoolkids from entering, or people smoking? I wouldn't ask a shop worker on minimum wage to physically challenge rule breakers, but they can refuse to serve such people.
You’ve got to take your mask off to eat and blow a candle out though..
sorry if this messes up my post as I wanted to put both quotes in
my problem is if it’s more resistant to vaccines but just as deadly as prior strains to delta then we’re still ****ed . Remember original covid and alpha fired us into lockdown 2 and 3
I was kind of hoping this strain would be milder than the original covid
Some positive news or just another opinion on how the variant reacts to the vaccine without any real proof ?
This has been the case in Scotland the whole time the face coverings but what interests me more is that wimpy is still a thing wtf
[offtopic]I was thinking the same. There used to be a Wimpy on Piccadilly in Manchester 30 years ago, and in the town centre at Gloucester about the same time, but I haven't seen one for donkey's years![/offtopic]
Sure it's been 20 years since I saw one
[offtopic]Just looked it up, they do still exist, they have 64 branches in England. The nearest to me is in Birkenhead though, which must be 25 miles away at least.[/offtopic]
Oh dear , just the yank burger chains for you guys !
There's one in P'boro , bit more expensive than most places but fills you up more .
There used to be a spaceship one on the A1 near Huntingdon many moons ago .
The chain was founded in Bloomington, Indiana by Edward Gold in 1934 as Wimpy Grills, with the chain in the United States hitting its peak with 26 locations in 1947. In 1954, Gold signed a license with J. Lyons and Co. for them to operate Wimpy Bar across the United Kingdom, with further international agreements a few years later through its subsidiary company, Wimpy International.

Still one in Kilmarnock too, 50 miles away from me. Wtf I was sure they went under
Greece has made vaccines mandatory for over 60s, Germany having a vote on mandatory vaccines...I still believe that forcing people to have it is totally wrong.

So do I, and I'm triple jabbed.
We have vaccines though, and there is no chance the virus will evade the vaccine in stopping severe illness... and so less strain on the health service.
The vaccine exists primarily to stop people getting sick, and dying in hospital from the virus. It isn't an issue if people get breakthrough cases but still easily manage it.
Is Burger King still a thing in the UK?
