Mods - think it might be time for a thread split. Either a new Omicron thread, or yet another Biden/Trump thread.
I have a crazy idea. Let's see if we can all self moderate going forward in this thread.  :)

With this variant now spreading is the hype warranted or still the sky is falling?

It really depends if it causes severe symptoms and/or death (with/without vaccine). We'll find out within the next few weeks.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/new-omicron-fears-as-variant-puts-huge-numbers-of-kids-under-5-years-old-in-hospital-in-south-africa/ar-AARqytv?ocid=msedgdhp

This (particularly the statistic on child hospitalization) is worrysome. What does 3x more transmissible mean? Isnít Delta 5-6x transmissible compared to Alpha? So this is 3x as transmissible as what?

Considering how dominant Omricon has become in SA, itís certainly possible it could become as dominant as Delta has globally.

Hospitalizations lag, this optimism sounds premature. It could very well be true but it seems too soon to call.

Only by a few weeks. They should have preliminary data.

Omricon has only been dominant in SA sampling for 3-4 weeks, so it might still be early.

SA infections tend to be younger than US due to demographic differences, so that's a factor as well.

I'mma admit I didn't read the whole thing, not even close, and certainly didn't read all the linked threads and articles. But seems like quite a thorough rundown on what we know about Kulula* at this point for those who are interested in spending their day on that.

*No, I will not let this go. Why do you ask?

It's a South African low-cost airline.
