To borrow an infamous phrase: I don’t know how to put this in a half-acceptable way. New Omicron variants are actively killing vaccinated and recently boosted 60-70 year-olds with very average comorbidites, as we speak. It’s a bog-standard medical reality in our hospitals.

The latest Omicron variant (BA.2.12.1) is the most infectious yet, & it’s snagging tons of people who have avoided Covid for > 2 years. It’s hitting close to home for me, so tonight’s 🧵is about that…with a few poll questions to see how your thinking lines up with mine. (1/23)

BREAKING: A new peer-reviewed study shows that immunity against Omicron “fades rapidly” after a second and third injection of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID vaccine. The science has supported our position on vaccines from the beginning.

Breaking! Omicron implicated as the cause of fulminant paediatric hepatitis. “High population burden of Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) is associated with the emergence of severe hepatitis of unknown etiology in children”. By @nishiura et al

Se aclara el panorama, si no estaba claro ya. "Conclusiones: la exposición previa a la variante Omicron puede estar asociada con un mayor riesgo de hepatitis grave entre los niños, lo que indica una necesidad crítica de realizar estudios de cofactores."

When the day comes that we decide to do something about it, there will be no excuse for not having done it earlier. We know what to do now, have done since omicron arrived, yet we are letting it run free more than almost anywhere in the world. It is so unnecessary. #COVID19Aus

Things people have been upset with me for during the pandemic: 1. Saying covid is airborne 2. Saying children transmit and acquire sars-2 infection 3. Saying that omicron would stress our health system even if per infection it was less virulent and than delta

I often wonder if any of the “kids will be fine” “Omicron is mild” crowd pause to think about the consequences if they are wrong. If those of us who do not share that view are wrong, the consequence is cleaner air & airborne mitigations for a period of time. The other option 😬

Sudáfrica está viendo aumentar los casos de coronavirus provocados por las subvariantes de ómicron BA.4 y BA.5. El impacto en hospitalizaciones ya es observable, aunque afortunadamente no en fallecidos.

My talking points for this wk: 1. Not a good sign I have talking points 2. New BA.2.12 looking like another omicron wave? 3. What's the plan? Modeling? 4. Breakthrough ER Visit/Hosp booster 1? 5. Push harder on booster 2 now? 6. Plan for fall a new national vaccine strategy?

The transmissibility of BA2.12.1 is extremely high (well beyond Omicron BA.1 and BA.2) and we are seeing so many vaccinated + boosted people whose risk-avoidance practices have not changed, but they are getting infected/sick. Please gear up, not let down

The tragic irony is that the notion that Omicron is less serious is true only if you are vaccinated. If it stops people getting vaccinated (and vaccination take up is now stalling for young and old alike) then it makes Omicron more serious.

For the 1st time in 2 years I called off work because of #LongCovid symptoms 😔. After 4 consecutive 20,000 step days my legs are literally on fire with nerve pain & weakness. Omicron in January did this. Multiple infections can exacerbate long covid. You don't want this virus.😷

Canada is the only country that is engaged in this stupidity! Has it made ANY difference to the spread of Omicron or any version of the COVID-19 virus? NO How idiotic is it to continue on with this charade!!!

Mike Hosking on the COVID fear campaign: “The whole game was up come booster time…Omicron for most was a cold…in the dark old days they overplayed their hand. Too much fear and spin has led to today: a sceptical public, not quite seeing the snake oil in the same light.”
