Once again, we see that the left is fearmongering and pushing hysteria, as now we’ve learned that the omicron variant is 91 percent weaker than Delta. Almost no one is going to die from omicron. And yet, the Democrats are pushing fear and hysteria as if omicron is as virulent as some Hollywood disaster movie virus.
Per The Blaze:
The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is far milder than Delta, according to a new study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The eye-opening data revealed that those infected with the Omicron variant are 91% less likely to die than those who are infected than the Delta strain.
The clinical study was conducted by Kaiser Permanente Southern California health care system – which operates 138 medical offices and 13 medical centers, plus has an affiliation with 37 community hospitals in Southern California. The study analyzed 52,297 Omicron cases and 16,982 Delta cases in Southern California between Nov. 30, 2021, and Jan. 1, 2022.
The study found that those infected with the Omicron variant were 53% less likely to have symptomatic hospitalization, had 74% less chance of being administered to the intensive care unit, and had a 91% lower risk of death compared to individuals with the Delta variant. Only one person of the more than 52,000 people with Omicron died, versus 14 deaths in the 16,982 with Delta. In addition, there were zero patients with Omicron who required mechanical ventilation, according to the research.
“Hospital admissions occurred among 235 (0.5%) and 222 (1.3%) of cases with Omicron and Delta variant infections, respectively,” the study said.
Despite these FACTS, Democrats all across the nation are re-instituting absurd and useless mask mandates, requiring vaccines, and again perpetrating shutdowns on the nation.
Indeed, the regular, seasonal flu may just be more powerful now than omicron! Yet, the Democrats are acting as if omicron is as fearful as the fictional strain in a Resident Evil disaster film.
