... but it looks like we might as well just ditch all of our precautions and go back to normal life.
As far as I can tell, the Omnicorn variant is unfazed by masks and is blowing right through any amount of vaccinations. It's crazy contagious and
everyone looks to be getting the same severity of symptoms CORRECTION: They are not getting the same severity of symptoms. Dig this thread. Key tweet:
The normal X-rays and the near normal ones belong to younger patients and vaccinated patients of all ages. There are vanishingly few pediatric cases with pneumonias.
The horrible pneumonias are seen in the unvaccinated, the immunosuppressed, and some elderly patients.
That suggests the jig is up and it's time to get back to normal lives. Get the vaccine unless you've had the WuFlu already. Other than that, it's still time to get back to our normal lives.
On the plus side, Omnicorn also seems to give much stronger immunity than the vaccines. That's a good thing.
I don't know, maybe the folks who are seriously at risk with comorbidities ought to just hide under their beds for a few weeks while it all blows over. I'm not snarking there, it really looks like the best plan to me. The unvaccinated can cope.
|Of course, we could always go the other way and use attack dogs and police batons on people who want to get back to their normal lives. That might work, too.|
