Report: Omicron Could End Up Being Less Deadly Than Seasonal Flu

Justification for maintaining restrictions disappearing.

Citing experts at the University of Washington, the MailOnline reports that Omicron’s estimated fatality rate could make it less deadly than the seasonal flu.

“No, don’t say that!” the technocrats cry in unison.

“Some experts have always maintained that the coronavirus would eventually morph into a seasonal cold-like virus as the world develops immunity through vaccines and natural infection,” reports the news outlet. “But the emergence of the highly-mutated Omicron variant appears to have sped the process up.”

Researchers at Washington University now modeling Omicron’s impact say they expect it to kill 99 per cent fewer people than Delta.

This means the variant’s infection-fatality rate (IFR) stands at around 0.07 per cent, meaning only one in 1,430 people will die after becoming ill with Omicron.

In comparison, flu’s IFR sits between 0.01 and 0.05 per cent.

One former government advisor suggested that Omicron’s mildness renders draconian lockdown restrictions absurd.

“We should be asking whether we are justified in having any measures we would not bring for a bad flu season,” said Professor Robert Dingwall.

“If we would not have brought in the measures in November 2019, why are we doing it now? What’s the specific justification for doing it?” he asked.

“If the severity of Covid infection is falling away to the point that it is comparable with flu then we really shouldn’t have exceptional levels of intervention.”

As Will Jones writes today, despite record numbers of cases in the UK over the Christmas period, COVID ICU occupancy is less than a quarter of its peak last January.

“Whether due to greater population immunity, a milder strain, or better treatments, this is obviously very welcome,” writes Jones.

“It is also confirmation that the pandemic is well and truly over – we are basically now expending vast resources tracking the spread of a cold – and it is time for the Government to acknowledge this fact, lift all restrictions, end all emergency powers, and bring the state of emergency to an end.”

Omicron’s total failure to cause anywhere near the devastation predicted by SAGE government advisors once again proves that their alarmist nonsense should no longer be respected.

The likes of Professor Neil Ferguson said that without further restrictions, Omicron would claim 3-5,000 lives a day at its peak.

In reality, the current 7 day average for total COVID-19 deaths in the UK (almost all of which aren’t even Omicron due to its mildness) stands at 160.

They got it spectacularly wrong yet again.

Doctor Criticized Over Tweets Showing His Baby Wearing Face Mask, Filtration Device on Pram

“We will definitely be getting our baby VAXED TO THE MAX ASAP.”

A pediatrician has attracted controversy for Twitter posts in which he reveals how he makes his baby wear face masks and uses an air filter contraption attached to a pram to ‘protect’ against COVID-19.

Dr. Greg Kelly, who has over 22,000 followers and includes his pronouns in his bio, is an ICU specialist based in Australia who is still arguing for vehement COVID restrictions to remain in place despite the fact that the pandemic appears to be coming to an end.

In one tweet, Kelly posted an image of his small baby wearing a face mask complaining that it is not working out well because the infant keeps pulling it off and sucking on it from the inside.

In another post, the doctor brags about covering the entirety of the baby’s pram with a sophisticated air filtration device.

“Thread on 2 months of use of a discreet home made portable HEPA filter aka “Pram-PAPR” using unmodified off-the-shelf equipment to put a layer of #COVID19 protection around our 6 month old baby,” tweeted Kelly.

In another tweet in the same thread, Kelly says that once COVID vaccines are approved for babies, “We will definitely be getting our baby VAXED TO THE MAX ASAP.”

As we have previously highlighted, COVID lockdowns and the wearing of face masks have both caused serious development disorders in children and babies.

Speech therapists have warned that both factors have caused a massive spike in children suffering from speech and cognitive problems.

Parents are describing their children’s speech problems as “COVID delayed,” with face coverings the primary cause of their speaking skills being seriously impaired.

A study by researchers at Brown University found that mean IQ scores of young children born during the pandemic have tumbled by as much as 22 points while verbal, motor and cognitive performance have all suffered as a result of lockdown.

A separate study by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists found that “repeated lockdowns had left young children without the chance to play and learn how to communicate, setting back their development.”

As we highlighted earlier this week, another study set to be published by the Times newspaper found that thanks to social isolation caused by lockdown, many children entering elementary school are unable to say their own name.

Respondents to Kelly’s tweets expressed a mixture of bafflement and revulsion.

“Lock these freaks up,” said one.

“I don’t think that parents in tropical countries go this far to protect their children from malaria,” added another.

“I read this entire thread desperately hoping it might be a deep cut exercise in trolling (especially the fallout shelter bassinet, good grief) because I’m not yet ready to grapple with how mentally ill and publicly deranged parts of the medical establishment have become,” remarked another.

“Child abuse,” summarized another.

Quadruple Vaccinated Anthony Fauci Tests Positive For COVID

Is experiencing “mild symptoms.”

Published

Quadruple-vaccinated Dr. Anthony Fauci has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing “mild symptoms,” it has been revealed.

The Biden administration’s chief medical advisor tested positive on a rapid antigen test according to a statement released by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

“He is fully vaccinated and has been boosted twice,” said the NIAID, meaning that Fauci has taken four shots of the “safe and effective” vaccine.

“He is currently experiencing mild symptoms. Dr. Fauci will isolate and continue to work from his home,” the statement added. “He has not recently been in close contact with President Biden or other senior government officials. Dr. Fauci will follow the COVID-19 guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and medical advice from his physician and return to the NIH when he tests negative.”

Although he has repeatedly insisted that Americans should continue to wear masks, last month Fauci attended a crowded pre-party for the White House Correspondent’s Dinner and took maskless selfies with Don Lemon.

The photos underscored Fauci’s hypocrisy because he said he wouldn’t attend the event itself due to COVID.

During an interview last month, Fauci admitted he had “flip flopped” on COVID policy by constantly changing his mind, but that this was a good thing.

Back in April, Fauci acknowledged that the “pandemic phase” of COVID was over, but that hasn’t stopped him from hinting that restrictions could return at some point later this year.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Fauci let the truth about lockdowns slip – that they are theatre designed to scare people into getting vaccinated.

“You use lockdowns to get people vaccinated so that when you open up, you won’t have a surge of infections,” he said.
