Don’t panic and freak out. Remember; evidence over hysteria. The guy was fully vaccinated and recovering from mild symptoms. We know how to slow down the spread of COVID so just have to remember that

U.S. health officials on Wednesday reported the country’s first case of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, in a person in California.

The Covid-19 case was identified by the California and San Francisco health departments in a person who had traveled to South Africa and returned on Nov. 22, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a release.

Sorry I don’t follow the news but how effective are the vaccines against omicron? Any ideas?

We won't know for a few more weeks, it's inconclusive, but every time a mutation occurs there is a chance it changes enough to be unrecognizable to our body, so we'll have to see.

Purr more, hiss less.

Great I live in SF:messga:  But honestly this is expected, COVID will never fully go away, but it's a good sign that the vaccine seems to be making the symptoms mild. Im hoping people don't go into mass hysteria over this. Realistically we can't expect no one to ever get covid, but as long as the death and hospitalization rate is low, I think we don't need to freak out

Don’t be afraid. Covid is here to stay, and with each passing day, it’s no longer becoming a novel virus. Everyone will get Covid once or multiple times in their lives, antivirals are here, just make sure you’re vaccinated beforehand, your T and B cells will do the rest.

I just read (from a virologist) that Omicron might be heavily mutated but not as infectious as Delta. Also, said virologist stated that booster vaccinations might protect people from Omicron.

So go get your boosters :grr:

Ew, David!

Oh wow I’m in the Bay Area down south in San Jose. Hopefully I should be fine since I just got my booster but it’s pretty scary knowing it’s in the area spreading:messga:

And so it begins… This is so selfish of me, but this may very possibly signal the cancellation of the Chromatica Bar Tour. I know it might already be cancelled even if there wasn’t Omicron, but I have never seen Gaga live and I would love nothing more than to go to her concert.
