Omicron Is As Deadly As The Seasonal Flu!

The omicron strain is less deadly than the rest of the mutations, so that we can compare it to the seasonal flu!

“Omicron could be even less deadly than flu; scientists believe in a boost to hopes that the worst of the pandemic is over,” the Daily Mail reported. “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. But the emergence of the highly-mutated Omicron variant appears to have sped the process up.”

“Covid killed one in 33 people who tested positive at the peak of the devastating second wave last January, compared to just one in 670 now,” the Daily Mail reported. “But experts believe the figure could be even lower because of Omicron.”

“The case fatality rate — the proportion of confirmed infections that end in death — for seasonal influenza is 0.1, the equivalent of one in 1,000,” the Mail continued.

In America, the coronavirus fatality rate drops precipitously by age groups for elderly to young. The C-19 connected death rates for the most youthful population are lower than daily activities like going to school and swimming.

“No accurate infection-fatality rate (IFR), which is always just a fraction of the CFR because it reflects deaths among everyone who catches the virus, has yet been published for Delta,” the Mail notes.

“But U.K. Government advisers estimated the overall figure stood at around 0.25 percent before Omicron burst onto the scene, down from highs of around 1.5 percent,” the article added.

“If Omicron is 99 percent less lethal than Delta, it suggests the current IFR could be as low as 0.0025 percent, the equivalent of one in 40,000, although experts say this is unlikely,” the Mail added. “Instead, the Washington modeling estimates the figure actually sits in the region of 0.07 percent, meaning approximately one in 1,430 people who get infected will succumb to the illness.”

“Leading researchers estimate flu’s IFR to sit between 0.01 and 0.05 percent but argue comparing rates for the two illnesses is complicated,” the Mail reported.

The WaPo reported that we face a tsunami of Omicron cases, but the hospitalizations are slightly up, and the death rate has plateaued.

They also added that South Africa also said skyrocketing cases. Omicron is fizzling out in South Africa without a surge in death rates.

‘’ But it should be noted that South Africa has a “fully vaccinated” rate of just 27%, which is very low compared to the United States (62%) and the United Kingdom (71%). This suggests that the Omicron variant is “generally mild” for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated, as the South African doctor who discovered the first Omicron patient noted, while prior infection from Omicron appears to provide some natural immunity to other variants, such as Delta.’’ According to Trending Politics.

“But there’s something else different this time around, at least in the U.K.: the statistical relationship between Covid-19 cases and deaths appears to have broken down with Omicron,” Stat notes.

“Looking at daily death rates in the U.K. from May 15 — essentially from the point at which the Delta wave began — to Sept. 15, there is a highly statistically significant relationship between daily new cases and deaths,” Stat continues. “In short, case rates accurately predict death rates.”

We can see that there is a decline in Delta cases and an increase of Omicron until middle December.

“But beginning the analysis on Sept. 15, coinciding with flattening of the Delta curve and the onset of Omicron, shows no statistical relationship between Covid-19 case rates and deaths,” the article adds.
