omicron: South African medical association says Omicron variant causes ‘mild disease’ – Times of India

JOHANNESBURG: The new Omicron variant of the coronavirus results in mild disease, without prominent syndromes, Angelique Coetzee, the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association, told Sputnik on Saturday.

The World Health Organization (WHO) identified on Friday the new South African strain as one of concern, as it is reported to carry a high number of mutations — 32 — which possibly makes it more transmissible and dangerous. The WHO has dubbed it Omicron, the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet.

“It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected some are currently being treated at home,” Coetzee said
The official noted that hospitals have not been overburdened by Omicron patients and that the new strain is not been detected in vaccinated persons. At the same time, the situation might be different for the unvaccinated.
“We will only know this after two weeks. Yes, it is transmissible, but for now, as medical practitioners, we do not know why so much hype is being driven as we are still looking into it. We will only know after two to three weeks as there are some patients admitted and these are young people aged 40 and younger,” Coetzee added.

The chairwoman also criticized the decision by some countries to ban flights from South Africa is premature as there is not enough information on how dangerous it is.
Following the reports about the new variant, the United States, the European Union, Canada, Israel, Australia and other countries have restricted travel from several southern African nations over the health concerns.

    All the MSM and Globalist Nefarious masterminds have done and are continuing to try doing is work everyone up into a frenzy and panic so they have, all scared freighted foolish sheeple to manipulate some more! This is over the top evil stupidity! We started out with a scam so that is a first problem! Then the next was not allowing herd immunity to run its course as always throughout history this was no different a situation!
    The virus when it runs its course doesn’t work to destroy the host but to continue infecting, so it stays mild and alters itself through mutations but that is a naturally occurring fact of life and to lock down shut off and hide everyone from everyone else is insanity and prolongs the process! Flu Season is Flu Season always was and always will be in this world; then the vaccines alter this process to create a weakness in the autoimmune system of the vaccinated to then create specific spike proteins that become a problem to the person with the now compromised defenses that allow the new variant to bypass the body’s defenses to wreak more havoc as a cytokine storm occurs a response far beyond what is normally necessary to ward off infection than it normally would have blocked the virus well enough with normal care! The person becomes overwhelmed but then the treatments that are commonly available were banned as well and only these toxic vaccines were being injected to make matters worse!
    They are creating the pandemic and engineering it as they go on here; this is all criminal and has to be stopped before the human race is so fouled up that millions and billions will be dropping dead! WHAT HEALTH CONCERN??? Normally people can think for themselves and if they don’t want to go out much because they are weak during flu season they stay home or take precautions and if one gets sick you take care of it and nip it! This is all more of the same evil at work lying and manipulating going on! The bloody bastards like Fauci, Gates, Soros and so on are running the narrative for the world to live by; this is absurd and heinous evil at work! MSM is a POS controlled by Big Pharma and the Globalists like a Soros, Schwab, Rothschild and so on!

    Herd Immunity Could Have Been Achieved In 6not66 Weeks!
    “Lockdowns are not saving lives, they’re costing lives. Every respiratory disease … virus epidemic … everyone one of them, ends with herd immunity. There is no other way for an epidemic to end. So it’s not an invention — a strategy — it’s just the way nature regulates respiratory disease epidemics.”
    Look people, I truly hope most if not all of you are really so called “Woke” as in Waking up to the “Truth” that you and I have all been lied to and played by the corrupted evil ways of the world system, which is all about “Big Money and Total Control” of we the little people who sit under the Tyrants of the world! They’re all in Cahoots, and you know by now about “New World Order” which has been a plan for many decades when nefarious power mongers like the Rothschild’s spawned Big Pharma with others like the Rockefeller’s, to subdue and totally control the masses and even to eventually do some depopulation of the human race!
    God bless you and keep discerning the Truth from all of the Lies!
    Brother in Christ Jesus,
