Yet another study has concluded that Omicron is a much milder form of COVID than previous variants, including Delta. Many are now saying it has taken on cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose and headaches.
The Daily Mail reports that a study of 160,000 Omicron cases by researchers from South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) concluded that those who catch the virus are 80% less likely to be hospitalized than previous variants. NICD also found that they were 70% less likely to be admitted to ICU or to require ventilation.
The Omicron variant emerged in South Africa and despite repeatedly telling the world that it was much weaker, the West’s political and medical elite are screaming the sky is falling in and demanding a return to lockdowns.
This is not surprising, because once the COVID pandemic became politicized in early 2020, medical facts became largely irrelevant.
The Daily Mail also noted that the number of Omicron cases in South Africa has fallen for the fourth day in a row, suggesting this COVID wave is winding down quicker than previous variants.
