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.

Boris Warned to Ditch Mask Rules or Face Rebellion

Everything must go.

Published

on

Boris Johnson is being warned that he must ditch all rules on face masks or risk an even bigger Tory rebellion.

Mandatory mask rules for indoor venues likes shops and cinemas were re-introduced off the back of warnings of Omicron causing 6,000 deaths a day.

That didn’t happen. It nowhere near happened. Because the bedwetting alarmists advising our government are always wrong.

MIT-Educated Doctor Ordered to Undergo Psych Evaluation After Prescribing Ivermectin

Medical license suspended for posting COVID “misinformation.”

An MIT-educated doctor who prescribed COVID patients Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine had her medical license suspended and was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Maine’s Board of Licensure in Medicine voted to pull Dr Meryl Nass’ medical license for 30 days after accusing her of circulating “misinformation” about COVID-19.

Health officials asserted that Nass “constitutes an immediate jeopardy to the health and physical safety of the public who might receive her medical services” as a result of her procuring anti-viral drugs to treat COVID.

The medical board voted to suspend Nass after receiving just two complaints that she was posting false information on her blog and on Twitter.

A doctor informed the Maine board of how he was contacted by the son of a patient who claimed his father was “borderline delirious” and “not doing well” after being prescribed Ivermectin by Nass.

Nass also self-reported to the medical board when she admitted obtaining Hydroxychloroquine by falsely claiming her COVID patient was suffering from Lyme disease.

“This was the only way to get a potentially life-saving drug for my patient,” said Ness.

In her blog posts, Ness has questioned the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 vaccines, asserting that they are associated with reproductive harm.

Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine have proven controversial because they are not officially authorized by the FDA to treat COVID, but some doctors and prominent public figures have asserted that they work well against the virus.

The media has also engaged in misinformation surrounding Ivermectin, with the Associated Press having to apologize for falsely claiming that 70 per cent of calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were about people ingesting ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

CNN refused to apologize to Joe Rogan after falsely claiming the podcast host took “horse dewormer,” despite Rogan having been given Ivermectin, a drug routinely used to treat humans, by a licensed doctor.

“They shouldn’t have said it was horse dewormer,” acknowledged CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta during an appearance on Rogan’s show.

Last week, Rogan accused CNN of doctoring a video of himself from last year in which the host announced that he had COVID.

9-Year-Old Disabled Boy Forced to Take Exam Outside in Freezing Weather Because He Didn’t Wear a Mask

Austrian student punished despite having an exemption.

A 9-year-old disabled boy in Austria was forced to take an exam outside in freezing cold weather as punishment for not wearing a mask.

An investigation is now underway as to ascertain why the student in Voitsberg was treated in such a manner despite having a valid mask exemption.

A photo shows the boy, Jason, sat outside up against the window of the classroom in temperatures of -1 Celsius.

The boy’s parents have hired a lawyer and are now considering moving their son to a different school.

Markus Leinfellner of the Freedom Party of Austria described the incident as an “odd class scandal” after he brought the case to the attention of the Austrian Ministry of Education.

Children are routinely forced to sit outside in freezing cold weather as a result of inhumane COVID-19 rules.

We previously highlighted a case at Waynewood Elementary School close to Alexandria where kids were photographed sitting outside in snow in what officials called a “mask and snack break.”

Last month, kindergarten students in Portland, Oregon were forced to sit outside eating lunch on buckets in the near-freezing cold while socially distanced from their classmates.

Last year, Forbes deleted an article written by an education expert who asserted that forcing schoolchildren to wear face masks was causing psychological trauma.

“Children in masks are also likely to miss out on critical language development, another fundamental area of growth in early years where children from low-income backgrounds already have disproportionate disadvantages,” wrote Zak Ringelstein, who has a a PhD in education from Columbia University.

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 and mask rules.
