From Jupes in a previous thread, with thanks.
The ‘38th’ figure is where Covid was placed on the ABS list of 2020 causes of death.
Thirty. Eight. No, seriously. It’s official.
Well, as official as a number from the ABC can be. Anyway all part of our current forms of insanity. As others have pointed out, Omicron is an anagram for moronic. I can only hope when we get to Omega it will really be the final end to it all, as in the Alpha and the Omega. Omega is last!
Not to mention this: South African doctor says patients with Omicron variant have “very mild” symptoms.
A South African doctor who was one of the first to suspect a different coronavirus strain among patients said on Sunday that symptoms of the Omicron variant were so far mild and could be treated at home….
“The most predominant clinical complaint is severe fatigue for one or two days. With them, the headache and the body aches and pain.”
The news of the new variant emerging from South Africa prompted a swift reaction from several countries, including Britain, which on Friday imposed a travel ban on several southern African countries with immediate effect, a decision South Africa has strongly contested.
Bizarre and the reaction is deeply shameful.
