How are you today?
As daily confirmed cases of COVID have started to resurge since the beginning of November, a new variant of COVID, what the WHO is calling the Omicron variant, has emerged in many countries of southern Africa. Nine cases have already been detected in the UK, three in England, and six in Scotland.
This variant is the most heavily mutated strain so far, so scientists are not sure sure about how it will fare against the vaccines on the market, which were based on the original strain of coronavirus.
In light of the news about this new strain, are you concerned? Will you be taking any extra precautions or changing any of your Christmas plans?
Don't hesitate to share here!
No, apparently this is not a variant that does harm beyond a headache and no threat to life, even WHO state no extreme measures or lockdown is needed!

@Courtney_J When a virus spreads it mutates, so I will be carrying on as normal....... a major study into masks used by children has uncovered some alarming facts..Face masks and other social distancing measures may in fact impede on children's development, a new study executed by Brown University has found
The probe analyzed the cognitive development of the youngsters through infancy, childhood and adolescence
In the study, researchers first analyzed 1,070 assessments administered on 605 kids prior to March 2020, when COVID lockdowns and masking began
A further 154 assessments from 118 kids administered between March 2020 and June 2021, during the height of the pandemic, were then carried out
Thirty-nine children born in 2018 and 2019 were analyzed over the course of the pandemic, into 2021.
The report found that there was a 23 per cent drop in scores measuring kids' intelligence quotients since the start of the pandemic
The study also found similar dips in the same span in regards to developing children's ability to communicate, both verbally and through subtle facial cues , Social distancing measures including face masks are suspected of causing young children's development to have dropped by up to 23 per cent during the COVID pandemic, according to a new study.
Brown University scientists Sean CL Deoni, Jennifer Beauchemin, Alexandra Volpe, and Viren D’Sa, penned the review, in conjunction with the global consulting firm Resonance, collecting data from 1,600 children - and their caregivers - who have been enrolled in the study between the ages of 0 and 5 on a rolling basis.
The probe analyzed the cognitive development of the youngsters through infancy, childhood and adolescence, and looked at how average development scores in three key areas had been affected during the COVID era - with shocking results.
The report found that there was a 23 per cent drop in scores measuring kids' intelligence quotients since the start of the pandemic. Results showed the early learning composite mean result dropped by a whopping 23 per cent, from a high of just under 100 in 2019, to 77 in 2021

On 15 November Boris Johnson gave a press conference urging everyone to get their booster shots. This has caused much confusion in the minds of the thus far ‘fully vaccinated’. Are they indeed about to find themselves thrown back to the lowly ranks of ‘partially vaccinated’ or even, shock horror, ‘unvaccinated’ and therefore lose all their associated ‘freedoms’?
During the press conference, Johnson states the following:
‘Let me explain why that booster is absolutely crucial. Because over time the protection from two jabs starts to wane, but that third jab boosts protection back up to over 90% against systematic infection.’
Does it? How on earth can we know that? And how long does this 3rd shot protection last? Will people need a fourth shot even sooner due to some attrition effect? What are the cumulative risks of toxicity from the shots? What are the immune risks from consecutive 6 monthly assaults that have not been tested longitudinally in this sequence?
This bizarre game of vaccine whack-a-mole has a lot of previously ‘good citizens’ tentatively starting to question the mainstream narrative of covid management. It is very easy to see how this ‘strategy’ benefits the drug companies. It is less obvious to understand how well it will benefit those lining up for additional injections. The people in question have already had two shots of a novel ‘vaccine’ that has not proved entirely effective. The solution: a third shot of exactly the same vaccine — or in many cases, a ‘mix n match’ approach. Should you have received the AstraZeneca, which does not come with ‘booster recommendation’, you may be diverted onto a Pfizer booster. This of course prompts further questions: would such a first shot of Pfizer (following two AZ), which was designed as a two-shot course (which is now seemingly inadequate in those that have received it) require a second booster? Confused? Well, that’s just the powers that be: heaven help the patient.

Not worried about the Omicron variant. I've had both vaccines and my booster now, so feel more at ease knowing the booster is done.
I will follow the scientific advice as usual, continue to follow all rules, wear my mask on public transport as requested etc.

Unlike many other
Has anyone else suffered from a new variant?
We hear about different variants being out, but luckily I have not had covid since the pandemic.
