COVID News Roundup


The World Health Organization reports that the Omicron variant is outpacing Delta in its rapid spread, having already been detected in 63 countries and at least 30 US states.

However, most people who have contracted it have had mild or no symptoms. And so far, only one death has been attributed to it, in Great Britain, even though it accounts for 40% of the cases there. Up until yesterday, there had been no recorded deaths anywhere in the world from it.

While health officials still urge caution, this seems to back up the South African doctor who suggested that Omicron might prove to be a good thing on balance, a mild, fast-spreading version of COVID that gives people natural immunity without causing much harm, sort of like a natural vaccine.

And whether it’s because of vaccines, Omicron or just being fed up with all the hysteria, even Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a liberal Democrat, has had enough and said, “The emergency is over.”

Polis said everyone’s now had plenty of time and opportunities to get vaccinated, and if they don’t and get sick, “it’s almost entirely their own darn fault,” but it’s their choice and “I respect that.” As for mask mandates, he added that it’s not the job of public health officials to tell people what to wear any more than they have the power to order people to wear a coat in winter, and “If they get frostbite, it's their own darn fault.”

Sounds as if he might have stumbled onto the cure for being a liberal Democrat!
