The South African doctor who first alerted authorities to the presence of the COVID-19 omicron variant reported that it presents “unusual but mild” symptoms.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, a board member of the South African Medical Association, first noticed otherwise healthy patients demonstrating unusual symptoms on Nov. 18.
“Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before,” Coetzee told The Telegraph.
In general, from a typical virus evolution perspective, we should see viruses get more infective, but less lethal. Delta did that.
Of course, all the fear-mongering only looks at infections. But deaths should go down, all other things being equal.
Alexandros Marinos is not so happy with the Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz exclusions:
Let me get this straight: this guy Scott tries to be hyper-scientific in how he evaluates dozens of IVM studies. He is allegedly very stringent about it, and the smallest errors are used as an excuse to discard dozens of studies. He’s still left with 11.
And then he reaches for a completely novel hypothesis, with basically no data, requiring a crazy-ass explanation, and he gives it a 50% chance ?
I’m, sorry. Occam’s Razor.
I want the shit this Scott guy is smoking.
I agree with Alexandros, but I can’t believe how much time he has wasted / spent on it.
