Please Read all of this because the Script is flipped near the End before the Chart. Going from a Being Concerned for the Omicron Variant to possibly being SUPER CONCERNED about maybe the Deadliest thus far!
NEWS straight out of South Africa is here. But one interesting NOTE is that THERE IS NO KNOWN CASES OF SEVERE COVID OR DEATH from this New Variant. And there are No Cases of anyone with this Variant losing their sense of SMELL or TASTE! I find this very interesting because the lack of SMELL and taste seems to me to most definitely be a more serious Variant. But this one doesn’t do that. And no cases of Severe Covid Like hospitalizations and death surprises me. Doesn’t it surprise you too? So, just maybe, Maybe this Variant is not going to be the Big One everyone is worried about. And they are slamming Birders shut very quickly from certain Countries. But dang, it’s got to be super Transmissible because out if one plane load of people, that plane had 50% onboard with Omicron.
But then I found other News about Omicron that shows it might be the Deadliest! Yet!
Hospitalizations across the country have increased 63 percent since the beginning of November, according to data from the country’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases. In Gauteng, a province that includes the nation’s largest city, Johannesburg, hospitalizations are up nearly 400 percent since the beginning of the month, from 120 for the week ending Nov. 6 to 580 for the week ending Saturday. And you can give into the Official just below-from Africa-
