The omicron things is quickly getting out of hand and we are already at risk of going above the worst day in new cases on the global level (that is +905 000 new confirmed cases).
What leaves little doubt that in incoming days the record will fall.

Is omicron more letal? Spreads more (I think so?)? Has more post-sympthons?

Anyway, I also never saw any second study about the mortality after 6 months or an year after people being hospitalized after the member "Si la Rum" (something like that, I know its wrong). The last study did imply that the actual death numbers are 2x more because a lot of people who got hospitalized by COVID died on a 6 month later window from many different causes which COVID did enhances, such as diabetes.

That is still kinda unclear.
However it seems that it is less lethal but much much more contagious. What in the end could lead into increase of deaths. Especially if hospitals get overrun with sick people, what is likely in many places.

I saw these kinds of studies but I don't know the details.



Anyway, yesterday was a tie for the worst day on record globally. Only seven cases less then the record of 904 000+.

With the way how the things are going today I don't see how the record can remain standing.
As a matter of fact "million detected cases" in a day is on the table. We are already at 814 000 are there are still plenty of places to report data from.


Record days in: NY, NJ, Maryland and Ohio
As well as: UK, France, Spain, Italy Australia, Canada .... etc.

Therefore If Omicron isn't significantly milder variant in the term of disease I am afraid this will all end up in history books. The hospitals simply can't keep up with this rate of infections if the disease is serious.

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.
