In lieu of lacking news I’ll keep my entry into the diary brief today:
“It is the nature of viruses to evolve and mutate so it’s to be expected that we will continue to see new variants emerge as the pandemic goes on. Our continued genomic surveillance allows us to detect them and assess whether they are significant”
No, really? As everybody knows it’s also in the nature of viruses to become weaker and less consequential with each new mutation. So we can assume with 99% probability that Omicron BA.2 will be even harmlesserer (I know that’s not a word, shut up!) than BA.1.
I’ve even heard scientists saying that Covid-19 did never, at no point, fulfilled the requirements to be acknowledged an endemic, even less a pandemic. Don’t ask me for the exact quote now, I’m sure I lost it somewhere.
You guys behave and love each other and don’t do stupid shit, ok?
