Report: Omicron Could End Up Being Less Deadly Than Seasonal Flu:
Justification for maintaining restrictions disappearing.
Citing experts at the University of Washington, the MailOnline reports that Omicron’s estimated fatality rate could make it less deadly than the seasonal flu.
“No, don’t say that!” the technocrats cry in unison.
“Some experts have always maintained that the coronavirus would eventually morph into a seasonal cold-like virus as the world develops immunity through vaccines and natural infection,” reports the news outlet. “But the emergence of the highly-mutated Omicron variant appears to have sped the process up.”
Researchers at Washington University now modeling Omicron’s impact say they expect it to kill 99 per cent fewer people than Delta.
This means the variant’s infection-fatality rate (IFR) stands at around 0.07 per cent, meaning only one in 1,430 people will die after becoming ill with Omicron.
In comparison, flu’s IFR sits between 0.01 and 0.05 per cent.
One former government advisor suggested that Omicron’s mildness renders draconian lockdown restrictions absurd. --->READ MORE HERE

This Is Why Biden Is Wrong to Say We’re in a ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated’:
Joe Biden has been relying on fear to boost vaccination rates. He’s been saying for months now that this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” However, the CDC hasn’t been very honest about breakthrough infections and has even been accused of covering up the real numbers.
Last fall, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) lamented that we weren’t getting honest data from the CDC and that numbers from more honest and transparent countries showed significant rates of breakthrough infections.
“Now, President Biden – and this has been parroted by media and news media – said that what we are currently experiencing is a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’. They don’t really give us any data to back that up. They just proclaim, pronounce that 99 percent of people with Covid now are unvaccinated. But they don’t give us the data,” Johnson explained in October. “Well, we have data from England, and here’s the data. So, of the 600,000 cases in England, 43% were the unvaxxed, 27% were with the fully vaxxed, another 30% were with partially vaxxed, or just undetermined.”
So it wasn’t a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” then, and it certainly isn’t now with the omicron surge. --->READ MORE HERE
