Well, actually...


wait a minute. this post makes it sound like the omicron variant is not going to result in the total collapse of civilization. it doesn't even suggest that this is the one that rips through all the vaccines and kills you dead the moment you step outside your bedroom. this isn't in line with my miserable attitude! those scientists must be lying!!

this reminds me of how the H1N1 strain in 2009 started out being an oh no pandemic and then mutated enough to be mild but virulent. now it's just another seasonal flu variant you get a shot for sometimes

hopefully this is the start of SARS-CoV-2 being just another thing you get a shot for every fall

The thing that's going to make everyone go literally insane following this poo poo is that almost *none* of the twitter scientists that everyone has been following since Delta blew up really talk about efficacy vs infection vs efficacy vs severe disease/death. The first thing you can eyeball a bit on early data (and that will change as more data comes in), but severity for unvaxxed vs fully vaxxed vs boosted/etc is something that's gonna take longer. The thing all these people are talking about is efficacy vs infection.

The former we don't have solid numbers on yet, the latter we have almost nothing on because you have to wait to see.

I actually doubt that it's milder- but I also doubt it's any worse for severity. Incidentally full vaxx didn't really do a good job of preventing infection by Delta- it's just that it prevented severe disease extremely well still but people don't really talk about it.

Like this is bad and I'm worried about it because why wouldn't you worry at least a bit about it, but man the posting has been extremely bad.

carry on then
