It's new and so it is being watched.
You can't predict how it is going to perform based on the new sequence alone.

Fifth paragraph: There is a lot of speculation, but very few clear answers.

That's exactly where we are at with this.

Last paragraph:

So for now we are left with a variant that raises significant concerns despite huge holes in our knowledge, and is one that needs to be watched closely and asks deep questions about what to do and when. The lesson of the pandemic is you can't always wait until you have all the answers.

Also correct. Due to exponential growth, if this looks like it is moving up in competition, then overreacting to it is the correct choice. Waiting to be sure means you lose and it will be vastly harder to get rid of.

The Omicron is an anagram for Moronic. The elites are laughing at you! :D
Do you think the Greeks were in on the grift? Or was the naming convention change all just a ruse so the WHO could eventually own the libs with that sick burn?

.

The Covid-19 variant that emerged in South Africa was named after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet.

The naming system, announced by the World Health Organization in May, makes public communication about variants easier and less confusing, the agency and experts said.

For example, the variant that emerged in India is not popularly known as B.1.617.2. Rather, it is known as Delta, the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet.

There are now seven “variants of interest” or “variants of concern” and they each have a Greek letter, according to a W.H.O. tracking page.

Some other variants with Greek letters do not reach those classification levels, and the W.H.O. also skipped two letters just before Omicron — “Nu” and “Xi” — leading to speculation about whether “Xi” was avoided in deference to the Chinese president, Xi Jinping.


For a deeper dive on the Greek alphabet naming convention up until recently:

I love this theory.

The Delta is an anagram for "Dealt". The Casino staff is laughing at you!
Good one. lol
If there is an analogy/metaphor for the rich, that would be that they are the casino owners and we all know that "the house always wins".
Pfizer made $37 billion so far and no doubt they are laughing "all the way to the bank", along with Bill "this is the best investment I ever made" Gates. :)

And, he who "smelt it, dealt it" which means those people who fart alot caused the delta variant, and who farts a lot? Vegetarians. All that plant matter ferments something awful. And... who's more like to be vegetarians? Liberals.
So there you go. We've closed the loop. It's all a liberal plot - they're responsible for the pandemic, so they can take away our freedom and make us watch CRT lectures.

I feel like as we’ve been reminded recently, we shouldn’t laugh. Because that might be elitist.

We were only 11 of 24 letters in when Lamda was announced. Sometimes patterns are really difficult for non-elites.

I would have thought even the Trumpiest dipshit would understand by now that the names are less about anagrams and more about the letters in the Greek alphabet since they stopped calling variants by the places of origin last year, but here we are.

You’d think that crowd would be in full freak out because the elites skipped over Xi.

That would be what we call a coincidence.

Also if you want to see how logic works.
Witches burn
wood also burns
Wood floats
so do ducks
So if a woman weighs as much as a duck, she is a witch.

As someone wise in the ways of science, let me assure you that Omicron/Moronic is a huge nothing burger.

So, it’s fear mongering or real treat, since UK already took an action?
Nothing wrong with being careful until we know for sure.

I suspect that Nu was skipped because it sounds a lot like Ni and you don't want doctors going around saying "Ni" to sick people. I already quit selling Shrubbery partly because of something similar.
Of course for years we had the Evian/Naive issue...I mean, who's gonna pay for water when you get it for free from the bubbler? (Aka drinking fountain for you north American types)

Two Omicron cases confirmed in Ottawa
When the first case of covid was confirmed in Canada blackfaces liberals keep saying; the risk- to Canadians-remains- low, very slowly just like that. Nice-and-slow. That's the way you do it see? Nice-and-slow; like that Flintstones episode.
Doug the thug said two weeks to flatten the curve.

The real pandemic had arrived. Last year was the appetizer and the antichrist will introduce himself as a solution.

I talked to God and he said I will be 👌-many here are fucked.

And if you change the name to number analogues, you get 15, 13, 9, 3, 18, 15, 14. Added up they make 87 and 8+7 = 15 which is the letter O. Orgasm starts with O so quite obviously the lizard people are trying to stop us from having sex.

Omicron may not...
That's exactly where we are right now. We don't know exactly how these mutations will impact transmissibility or risk. There are some signs from SA with spiking case numbers but it doesn't seem like they've done enough testing to determine if the uptick is specifically O cases.

It's a small sample size but one country (Israel?) had 15 or so cases in vaccinated people, none of which developed serious symptoms.

They also skipped over Nu. (Lots of early reports on Omicron call it Nu because that is what was next.)
I can only assume they skipped Nu because they didn't want a "WHO's on First?" series of joke puns about the "New-Nu virus".
"Xi" probably because of the name confusion with the politician.
