2) How risky is the new #OmicronVariant? It has potentially 500% competitive advantage compared to the old Wuhan strain. That is staggering. Let’s hope the early data is wrong. But I worry it’s not given WHO concern about it 👇
aí na moral vai tomar no cu certo

10) Update—new name for B11529 — #OmicronVarariant.
Heads up. Follow the science and the experts. 👇👇👇
Covid turning into Transformers robots
Pues no es Nu sino Ómicron
conveniently right before Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial
When I see these new variants surface, it continues to underscore the importance of Vaccination!

Preventing new variants, and digging out of this pandemic will require us to ensure the world is vaccinated.

This requires global equity as it relates to vaccines. #OmicronVariant
Opa saiu a denominação oficial da @WHO da variante #B11529 do SARS-COV-2...agora é omicron !!! 😷💉 @MiguelNicolelis @mellziland @schrarstzhaupt

With mitigation, it has an R value of around 2. pic.twitter.com/PcXNte9GrP

But does it cause more severe illness and death? Isn’t that the more important question?
It has a name #Omicron Please get your jab if eligible. If waiting for your #BoosterShot (and not eligible) call your Tory MPP and ask when? Also call your MP and ask why our shots go to waste rather than shipping them to those countries that need them?
In reply to @DrEricDing
Ok 😳 Stay safe and mask up. It’s probably already on our continent. Just time before it shows up in a test result.
In reply to @DrEricDing
Thank you. Here’s what we need to know: 1) is it more dangerous for those who are vaccinated than Delta? 2) is it less detectable by rapid antigen tests (we know it’s less detectable early on by PCR) Those are burning questions. Please keep us posted.

That’s what happens when capitalism is more important than people. We could have lifted the patent to make sure the whole world is vaccinated but no, profit first before anything. Capitalism kills.

Will Omicron be the first VOHC (Variant of High Consequence?)
Ah crap. “Omicron Variant” is such a boss-level name. Gamers unite! ✊
In reply to @DrEricDing
Delta was an effective name, but this is the first thing since "Cluster 5" that feels appropriately ominous.
"Omicron". Schaut so aus, als ob wir uns diesen Namen merken müssen.
While the @WHO designates #B11259 an official “variant of concern” and names it #Omicron , there is a Dutch #persconferentie on the continuing controlled mass infection policy of #SARSCoV2. Not a single mention of #omnicron as the country faces imminent hospital collapse.

OMARION VARIANT?!?? Lil Fizz save us
Baka lang siguro gusto ng ating gobyerno na higpitan ang pag pasok ng mga international travellers sa bansa.
Ich sage es euch, bei diesen ganzen Entwicklungen und der Art und Weise wie wir die letzten 2 Jahre uns Verhalten haben, kommen wir nie wieder da raus. Hangeln uns von Winter zu Winter und das hält einen stetigen Stressfaktor auf einer ganzen Gesellschaft.

Se sabe poco, pero ya fue designada por la OMS como variante de preocupación #Omicron (muy rápido) twitter.com/DrEricDing/sta…
In reply to @DrEricDing
Did they rename it because Nu means Now in a few languages and using it in sentences is therefore ambiguous?
Amid all this bad news, I suppose we should be grateful that they decided not to call it the "Nu" variant, which would have been endlessly confusing.
WHO skips nu (too much like "new"?) as well as xi (the name of the Chinese leader!), so we are now at omicron. Honestly, as it's the first day after Thanksgiving, they should have called it pi.

Well, at least I can joke about it.
Every year will be 2020.
Hard to find many positives about Covid, but it has done wonders for my knowledge of the Greek alphabet.
Name change, same danger! NU to #OMICRON

Covid 19 and its variants are still killing.
In reply to @MrFarmahini
Looks like it won’t be called Nu. Will be called the Omicron variant. Please tell your friends and family so they are aware of what is coming. We can’t be caught with our pants down again.
Listo.. tienen nombre.
#OMICRON o #B11529 ya es variante de preocupación.
La pandemia no ha terminado. No ha ni comenzado a terminar.
Los fallecidos continúan aumentando en #Chile

Esto NO ha pasado.

#covid19ireland, Given our delicate ICU capacity and time of the year, we must take this new virus very seriously. It will take 100 days for an effective vaccine !!
Reports ex #sa suggest its prevalent amongst young people !! @astaines @rtenews @MiTE_IT @IrishTimes @BelTel @BBC
Welp. I really should get that booster shot
In reply to @NickKnudsenUS
Well I’m going straight to Futurama… Here’s a good thread on #Omicron twitter.com/drericding/sta… pic.twitter.com/TJe2oDKWnW
Do you think we would have been in this mess if we had all gotten the vaccine?

These rapid mutations. Can it be mutating itself to "death"?
Now here's a codename I can agree with. #Delta just sounds like a shitty airline, but #Omicron, that's proper doomsday weapon territory.
So, they’re calling it omicron. Who nu?
Y’all better be careful you risking a cease and desist from The Divine Nine
La nueva variante se llama Omicron Ο 👇🏽
Omicron Persei 8 variant just hit
WHO has settled on a name for the SA variant: #Omicron (not “Nu.”) Harkening the image an imposing transformer villain, scientists are gathering as much info as they can.

So much to learn. So yes, it’s wise to not freak out. But the pandemic isn’t over. Be safe. #WearAMask
We are coming dangerously close to omega and will be running out of Greek letters soon. Unless of course omicron is so bad that we don't have to worry about that...
#Omicron Unless we’re all vaccinated, all over the world, we will still be at risk.

I wonder why the skipped the „XI“ variant 🙄 😂😂😂😂 OMICRON Prime Transformers #OmicronVariant #NuVariant #B11529 B.1.1.529 pic.twitter.com/wNmmEbpWoR
This is terrible. Stay home these holidays. It's not worth it to risk the loved ones you care about. Get vaccinated. Keep your distance. Keep your masks on.

Dazu die internationale Einstufung, die jetzt erfolgt ist. #Omicron

Is this OMG bad or OMFG bad?
Nu al zin in de 'Omega Variant'.
Se cancela “Nu”, al parecer ya estaba tomada.

Botswana B11529 has been official designated Omicron Variant by WHO now. #OmicronVariant. High risk of reinfection. High priority.
Omicron 変異株かあー😩😭
#Omicron is coming
Peut-être 500% plus contagieux que Delta (😱😱😱). Ventilez, ventilez, ventilez (et vaccinez-vous).
I wonder how many of us it will kill.
In reply to @DrEricDing
Why not, Oh my God!!
It's not the #Nuvariant it's #Omicron and it's officially a worry. Will Morrison wait a few days before taking action? #auspol #covid19aus #OmicronVariant
Regardless of how you feel about COVID, the spread is already huge for this variant. That is a lot of area already covered
