Default Omicron be even LESS deadly than seasonal flu? believe may kill 100 TIMES fewer peopl

Could Omicron be even LESS deadly than seasonal flu? Scientists believe ultra-infectious strain may kill 100 TIMES fewer people than Delta (and mortality rates were ALREADY similar to influenza before the variant emerged)
Researchers expect the ultra-infectious variant to kill between 97 and 99 per cent fewer people than Delta

Omicron could be even less deadly than flu, scientists believe in a boost to hopes that the worst of the pandemic is over.

Some experts have always maintained that the coronavirus would eventually morph into a seasonal cold-like virus as the world develops immunity through vaccines and natural infection. But the emergence of the highly-mutated Omicron variant appears to have sped the process up.

MailOnline analysis shows Covid killed one in 33 people who tested positive at the peak of the devastating second wave last January, compared to just one in 670 now. But experts believe the figure could be even lower because of Omicron. ...

It would be great if the numbers of people dying from COVID dropped, but the current average is over 1,600 deaths a day in the US. Thatís a lot worse than the flu.

yes we know this. it's being reported. Delta variants are killing Floridians and even the gov is concerned (or feigns it). The hope is that the virus won't further evolve into who knows which type (killer or non) in the season of the unvaxed.
