As expected the Christmas disrupted the testing. So I am quite curious to see where this will lead now that Christmas is over.

While the last record from last year was just 8400


There are new records in Massachusetts, Australia, Denmark, Greece, Cyprus, Liberia, ... etc.


Plus the fact is that there is clear spike in Argentina. What basically means that the whole South America will in the near future see it's Omicron wave.

Over here they are expecting massive staff fallout in basically all industries due to omicron.

As for quarantine, the duration depends on the virus variant. If you are fully vaccinated and show no symptoms, you only have to quarantine for beta, gamma and omicron. The duration is either 10 days without a test or 5 days with a negative pcr test or 7 days with a negative antigen test.

Masks are a non-issue because they are compulsory nationwide anyway (actually all over the continent, as far as I know).

Which leads m to my initial reaction to the rules you posted:

HOW COME YOU GUYS STILL DON'T HAVE A NATIONAL MASK MANDATE???

This is going to be fun.
Today we are clearly going over a million in a day globally.

Here we are
World: +1 070 000
Plus there will be a few more hundred thousands before the end of the day.
Btw. this could be the worst day on the record for the US.

With adding of some numbers the previous US record has fallen already on 24th.
However now there is a tie with new record and there are still some states to count. So the record will fall again today.


Edit: 10 seconds later: new record it is

I never thought that I will say something like this but lately I got hooked up on Indian right wing news (on English). I mean it is interesting since you get out of the bubble of first world media. Plus I must say I like how straight forward this is in a number of global issues as the channel.


Therefore this makes a decent closing thought of 2021.

Red states: The federal government doesn't have the consitutional authority to place vaccine mandates on private business!

Also red states: Biden isn't doing anything to help with our surging covid numbers!
I was using that article to illustrate why there is no national mask mandate but yeah...this too.

Today the incoming numbers are visibly worse than yesterday. What means that this wasn't anomaly but just "the newest normal".

Worldwide cases are spiking due to new year celebrations worldwide! Although in my country, it is still low... "Theoretically" (its not like this country do much COVID tests anyway...).

After 2 years of dodging Rona, I contracted Omicron, it has been mild so far i still have a nagging cough. I was one week away from my booster time frame but I consider myself boosted now. I wont be getting any more vaccines or boosters at this time.
