The fact that this whole thing is even "news" shows how bananas everybody has gotten since Covid.
To paraphrase @ExGingi - covid is crack for "news" outlets, and when they need a fix they've graduated to heroin.

If the tests are picking up Omicron, then you'd think they'd pick such a thing up as well.

Yes, the key word being "if". I'm suggesting that the test is not picking it up - if it were then we'd have seen a lot more than just the few dozen confirmed cases, don't you think?

We don’t confirm that many cases. Omicron is 13% of sequenced cases in NYC area as of last week, and 3% in some other states, averaging 9% or higher. It’s certainly more than just a few.

This one is heroin laced with a deadly dose of fentanyl.

The news about the virus is bananas, the response is a banana smoothie laced with hallucinogens

Fake news to the max can be uppers or downers

I had just had “it” (and it was bad! Fever did not go down for 24 hr even after taking a whole bunch of fever reducers I actually called hatzolah but the lmk they did not have an available chovesh so I was welcome to call mada!only in Israel!)
The only way it came up was on a blood test (my cpr was 32) but the doctor did give antibiotics which definitely helped me!
Off topic, but why would you call ichud and not mada to start with?

It seems like there's a stomach virus going around.

My son told me that a large percentage of the boys in his yeshiva weren't feeling well and went home. He came home two nights ago and went to the doctor yesterday, but then decided to go back to Yeshiva, as he was simply too bored at home (DW is away and I'm busy at work).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

pretty sure this was around when i was in yeshiva as well. The thought of 2nd adar makes these bucherim queasy
Hits particularly hard after Chanukah is over and Purim fun is far in the distance. Shovevim (Tat!!) retzifos program posters being hanged already doesn't help either. Take the Bocherim to a mid winter shabbaton.

Seems like I got hit by it... So far tested negative for strep on the rapid. Got hit by this worse than I got hit by Covid, but hope that it goes away faster, and doesn't leave any symptoms behind...
