Omicron news

Way too soon for conclusions, but reports are there are early signs Omicron might even cause milder illness than Delta or the original Wuhan virus. It is possible, perhaps not likely, but possible, that this is actually a step towards the end of the pandemic.... what probably happened with the Russian Flu coronavirus in the late 19th century was that it mutated. Not into a less transmissible form, but into a cold virus, from a lethal respiratory pandemic agent. Omicron is probably not that, but it's possible. Someday they may refer to "the various coronaviruses that cause the common cold, including the mutated form of COVID-19."
