As an alarming new Covid variant spread to Europe on Friday, scientists warned that it would inevitably reach Britain, while ministers faced calls to urgently speed up the vaccination programme.
inevitably? what do you mean? all we have to do is do deep genomic sequencing on everyone, worldwide, everywhere, always, and then close all borders, totally, and stop all people moving, absolutely, and halt the movement of all goods, permanently, every time the virus appears. what do you mean INEVITAVBLY? where are all the technocrats to solve this problem?!?
B.1.1.529, or Omicron
B one one what now? why the silly high numbers? omicron? is that a transformers villain? there has only been 4 variants of covid. i read it on ABC news so i know it's true.
Belgium reported a case in a traveller who had been in Egypt and Turkey rather than southern Africa, suggesting community transmission, while cases were also detected in Israel and Hong Kong. Experts predict it is only a matter of time before it reaches Britain.
what do you mean its spread already even after early detection? it's quite simple: we must ban all travel forever and keep people in their homes. that way covid will get bored and disappear. just like the black death disappeared immediately after medieval padua quarantined. look at the case studies people! i read lots of history so i know!
The EU agreed there was a need to suspend flights from countries in southern Africa following restrictions announced by countries including the UK, Japan, Germany, Italy and Spain. The US and Canada also brought in travel curbs on Friday night.
brave, valiant EU. taking strong and decisive action. there's been one case detected in belgium already (meaning there's many more), as well as cases in turkey and hong kong, major destinations of flights for EU nations, but THAT'LL show those southern africans what's what! omicron will definitely, absolutely, never leave south africa. it's a done deal. we've banned travel! no more tourists gawping at the fauna in botswana!
