Does anyone else here think that Omicron sound like a cheap watch sold at a Walgreens?
Or a cheap nickel finish for you sidearm.
Just another made up boogie man they are trying to convince you is hiding under your bed.
Greek alphabet was so beautiful… until Covid came.
Why they didn’t use Russian… or Chinese… or any other but not one of the best alphabet in the World.
Omicron… Can’t offend the Chinese.
unless we pronounce it “Omi-Kron” - 奧密克戎
A video blogger said the real meaning behind the word is what other word one can spell from those letters - moronic.
Omicron? AAH, isn’t it that new nasal spray used at first sign of a cold made in CHINA?
Watch out before you know it there will be dozens of strains, ie the flu! Then you will need a new shot every few months or your lips, head or other semi-important body part might fall off! The good news is the side effects can on!y cause headlessness, brainlessness, death or a becoming democrat, so watch out for those side effects.
Corona virus → Corn Saviour
You’re gonna make one mad.
I still think the extrasolar visitor left the seed design of COVID-19 as a way to add genetic material to humankind (our biosphere) in preparation for visitation from an off-planet contingent. (Or, maybe humans who left the planet ages ago, before an extinction-level event. They, having decided “we” are about as ready as we’ll be to be offered a hand-up into the local galactic community.)
Two things I see about that chart: one, that means we are more than half way through the non-sense; two, that we are lucky the Greeks invented that alphabet or these scientists would not have been able to name these variants…
I decided to call it the Moronicron variant.
To be replaced by MEV: the midterm election variant.
Good one, I will use it.
YAAHH, Hmmm!!! Wasn’t that seed design of COVID-19 genetic material in a “BAT” discovered by “CHINA”???
Oh, that’s just the story of the hyper-wealthy recognizing too much population is the equivalent of defecating where you sleep. So, just like people in Europe have taken to annual hog hunts, inviting harvesting “hunters” to thin the herd. Just like Americans have found work in the Southeast harvesting hog, boa, gators, and lizards…
Someone has taken Ian Flemming’s stock script for James Bond’s evil empires. The plotline is writ large as a nation-state and not some large multi-national conglomerate.

As far as the new South African variant goes "It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. As long as we have ever had the flu we have had a new variant every year that the previous flu shot would not prevent. So we continue to be a year behind in every case. Nothing new. The Covid is just the same thing and will continue to mutate to other non-preventable strains year after year. We need to get used to it and not panic. Life goes on.
