WHO declares new variant of concern named Omicron

11

The World Health Organization has declared the new coronavirus variant identified in South Africa as a variant of concern and named it omicron.

WHO’s technical working group met on Friday to assess the new B.1.1.529 variant and decide whether it should be deemed a variant of concern or a variant of interest. Variant of concern is the more serious of the two designations. The delta variant that is dominating infections in Canada and around the world is a variant of concern.

WHO defines a variant of interest as one that shows genetic changes that in theory could give it the potential to affect transmissibility, severity of disease, or how well vaccines or treatments work on the virus and could cause significant community transmission in “multiple countries … to suggest an emerging risk to global public health.”

It becomes a variant of concern when there’s evidence that increased transmission or increased severity of disease may be happening, or that public health measures, vaccination or treatments may have decreased effectiveness against it.

Canadian health experts on Friday cautioned against alarm and said it would take time to assess the potential impact of the variant and that there’s no evidence that existing COVID-19 vaccines wouldn’t continue to be effective.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious diseases specialist in Toronto, urged Canadians to get vaccinated if they haven’t already.

In addition, he said the discovery of a new variant shows the importance of ensuring everyone in the world has access to the vaccine, because variants originate among unvaccinated people.

  1. All these new variants are coming from the fully vaccinated people, stop wit the needles but guess what it’s their agenda

  2. … Also, has anybody else noticed that Omicron is an anagram of the word MORONIC!

    COME ON NOW FOLKS, THE GLOBAL ELITES, POLITICIANS, THE AGENDA PUSHING MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT, AND NOT FORGETTING THE – PAID UP – MAIN STREAM MEDIA (PFIZER, ETC …) ARE ALL LAUGHING AT US.

    EVEN I HAD TO HAVE A WRY LAUGH WHEN I REALISED THIS SICK JOKE!

    • Ha Ha Ha Ha that’s funny!
      No, I hadn’t noticed that until you brought it to our attention.
      It’s an ironic and apt name for this farcical variation.
      Yes it is a SICK joke but Humiliation is part of what the elites like to do.

      • Yep! they see us all as morons who can’t see what they’re up too – I saw through it from day one … TAL!

  3. Yes now everybody will have to be vaccinated for this new virus. The old vaccines won’t work they will say. More money for big pharma and more people go die from all the jabs.

    • IVERMECTIN, India are now using this FDA approved drug (under approved medical prescription), and surprise, surprise their Covid-19 figures are falling fast. However, the big pharmaceuticals, main stream media, the elites and the politicians will continue to discredit this amazing drug.

      If you don’t believe me, look at how they all tried to discredit Joe Rogan when Ivermectin saved his life after he contracted the virus – watch his revealing testimony (14:45 minutes long) on YouTube under the title of: Joe’s Covid Experience, CNN’s Ivermectin claims …

      WATCH IT BEFORE ITS TAKEN DOWN BY THE ‘THOUGHT POLICE’ – THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE FOLKS!
