Doctor With “BAD NEWS” For CNN! Omicron Causes Mild Symptoms! NO PANIC

CNN invited Dr. Salim Abdool Karim, a South African doctor, to share his experience of treating Omicron-positive patients. He discussed the latest details of the new variant that the government uses to justify its rigorous restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns.

According to the doctor, the Omicron mutation causes mild symptoms, but there may be severe cases later.

The CNN host, Brianna Keilar, opened the interview by asking about Omicron’s transmission.

“Is this more transmissible, and are you seeing it evade vaccines?” Keilar asked.

“Yes,” Dr. Karim replied. “When we look at the virus itself, it has several mutations that should confer on it the ability to transmit faster, but of course, we need to know whether it’s doing so. So now, when we look at the epidemiological data, we’ve compared the three previous waves and the rate at which they increase in the first seven days after the wave threshold. And what we have found is that the Omicron variant is doubling faster than any of the three previous waves.”

The problem with the lockdowns and the vaccine passports is manifold. The high transmissibility gives mild symptoms, which means that we may experience a high number of new C-19 cases than the previous variants.
With this, we could possibly increase the Natural immunity, which is demonstrated in the states that already have passed the third wave from the Delta variant.

Next, the vaccines can’t stop the spread. We can conclude that the vaccine mandates and passports are nonsense.

“And we are hearing, as we, of course, have concerns about transmissibility, we want to know about how severe it is, and there are some South African scientists who say breathing doesn’t seem to really be an issue for patients infected. Is that what you’re seeing? Can you explain this?” Keilar asked.

“So, we have two sources of data,” he replied. “The first is anecdotal data from our doctors at the front line. I’ve been speaking to the chair of our medical association, she collects this data from all the doctors, and essentially what they are saying to us at this stage is that the cases are generally mild, seems to be slightly more people in the younger age groups, but the presentation is essentially similar to the way patients presented in the previous waves.”

“Now, one has to be very careful in over-interpreting that, because it’s still very early days, in that severe cases usually take longer, they occur in weeks 2, 3 and 4, so it may be that severe cases will follow later, but certainly at this stage, with the data we’re seeing in terms of these reports, there are no red flags,” he added.

Dr. Karim discussed the reports about kids being impacted that alarmed the parents. You have to know that the same data circulated by the MSM for the Delta variant, which was false.

“The second is data we get from our admissions database,” he said. “Now there’s a bit of a lag, so it’s running a few days behind, and what we saw early on is we saw an increase in the number of hospitalizations in children below the age of 5. That initial increase in children who are younger is now being offset in that it might have been just an early aberration. It’s now easing off, and probably the proportions that are being admitted have been now correcting themselves.”

“It’s also quite possible because schools were open and preschools were open that we may have seen those cases emerging. But even the children who were admitted were mostly mild conditions. So not — we haven’t been seeing many severe cases. But again, I want to just caution, we’ve only known about this for a week, so it’s still early days,” he said.

“So mostly mild cases. Have there been any severe cases in kids? What can you tell us about that?” the host asked.

“Yes, we have seen several severe cases in children. We would be expecting to see that. The ICUs have reported admissions of children as well and adults, so we are seeing severe cases, but it’s very different from the previous waves in that in the previous waves, there was this deluge, and we became overwhelmed with just a lot of patients arriving early on. Even though this virus is transmitting faster, we aren’t seeing that same early pressure. Part of it is probably due to vaccines, and some of it may be due to the actual clinical features of the virus itself. So I think it’s a mixed bag.”

The best final point was that Omicron’s symptoms are mild, and the doctor added that the natural infection doesn’t prevent reinfection.

“What might be a concern is relating to whether vaccine also holds against it, and they’re what we have seen in the latest information that’s become available from our national institute of communicable diseases is that we are seeing an increase in reinfection, so there is an early analysis from one of our centers… that looked at the ratio of reinfections to new infections and what we’re seeing with omicron is an increase in reinfections.,” he said.

“The ratio is 2.4, higher than what we saw in our previous waves,” he added. “Now, we expect some increase because we’ve had more past infections now, but this increase is way out of range, so that means it looks like past natural infection does not seem to be protecting to any significant extent from Omicron infection. On the vaccine front, we really don’t have data yet. That’s still to come. We are seeing breakthrough infections in vaccinated individuals, but so far, they’ve been mild. But I don’t want to make too much of that, still too few cases to make any comment.”

We don’t have data that supports the claim that natural immunity isn’t mitigating symptom severity from Omicron. However, it doesn’t stop reinfection.

We know that the first Omicron cases were fully vaccinated.

There isn’t space for panic and hysteria! But, this is CNN, so they ring the alarm about everything, trying to help the Biden Admin justify their massive lockdowns, vaccinations, and Covid-19 passports.
