Half of Europe to be infected with Omicron within weeks says WHO – BBC News


The World Health Organization has warned that half of Europe will have been infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 within six to eight weeks.

The projection was based on the seven million new cases reported across Europe in the first week of 2022.

Recent studies suggest that Omicron is less likely to make people seriously ill than previous Covid variants, but it is still highly contagious and can infect people even if they are fully vaccinated.

    Naomi is very jolly hockey sticks and midnight feasts in the dorm with Bunty and Fi. Just like the BBC used to be in the good old days.

    If the same number of governments and people reacted as hesitantly as they have in real life, but in the Pandemic game, I would have had much better scores.

    All these warnings and yet still nothing being done. Hospitals getting overwhelmed, same as last year, and yet still no restrictions or lockdown. Just waiting for more people to die!

    It's one if the reason cannabis should be legalised, there been an experiment to show the it acts as a barrier why is cannabis so illegal in the UK it has so many benefits but the UK turns a blind eye to it, why as that because most of our leaders have their hands in stuff like the pharmaceutical companies

    “Two doses of the vaccine offers very limited protection, if any. 3 doses with a booster offer reasonable protection against hospitalization and deaths. Less protection against infection.” – Head of Pfizer

    Was Omicron released intentionally as a cure for previous versions?

    This fear mongering continues as long as there is profit to make.

    Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel;

    I recommend checking the meaning of pharmacy from the Greek FARMAKEIA – literally the operation of medicine during the time of ancient Egypt or Assyria, Biblical translation as the full meaning of this term

    Time to end all this 👍They talking about school online, but it doesn't make any sense at all 😂 Poor countries in Asia and Africa they have no access to online school, vaccination rate very low 🙈 Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria etc. populations should be reduced by now.
