According to the WHO, “for Omicron, we have not had any deaths reported, but it is still early in the clinical course of disease and this may change.”
Of course they’re going to say that because totalitarian governments around the world want to use Omicron to lockdown their people and allow the pharmaceutical companies to make billions more in booster vaccines.
The Epoch Times reached out to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for comment and it sent them a report on the Omicron in the US from December 1 through December 8 that shows there were no deaths documented from Omicron.
According to a weekly epidemiological update for December 7 by the WHO, all 212 cases of Omicron that have been documented through 18 European Union (EU) countries were either mild or asymptomatic. So then why is the US government trying to gaslight us into thinking it’s going to be a catastrophe? The moron governor (not elected) of New York has already called for a state emergency even though not a single New Yorker caught Omicron.
“While South Africa saw an 82 percent increase in hospital admissions due to COVID-19 (from 502 to 912) during the week 28 November–4 December 2021, it is not yet known the proportion of these with the Omicron variant,” the report indicated.
Omicron has made it to our shores, first found in California and then Colorado, New York, Utah, Maryland and other states.
San Francisco was where the first American patient was identified to have caught the Omicron variant. The patient tested positive for COVID-19 on November 29 after coming home from a trip to South Africa.
The California Department of Public Health told the LA Times that the variant was found in wastewater as early as November 25. I wonder how they figure that out? Are they always testing wastewater for new viruses?
Omicron made international headlines on Black Friday, November 26, once it was detected in South Africa. First named B.1.1.529, the WHO eventually named it Omicron after labeling it a “variant of concern.”
Then two days later, a technical brief went out saying that there were over 30 mutations, which meant the variant could become a “very high” risk.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, who is the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association and one of the first doctors to treat patients with Omicron, has maintained from the beginning that Omicron is a mild variant.

South African Doctor:
"Looking at the the mildness of the symptoms, there is no reason for panicking, as we don't see severely ill patients"

“Let me be clear: nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants the extreme action the UK government has taken in response to it,” she wrote in The Daily Mail.
By “extreme action,” Dr. Coetzee meant “heavy travel restrictions on flights from across southern Africa, as well as imposing tighter rules at home on mask-wearing, fines and extended quarantines.”
“No one here in South Africa is known to have been hospitalized with the Omicron variant, nor is anyone here believed to have fallen seriously ill with it.”
