New variant

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59424269

The new variant, which has been designated a new variant under investigation by the UKHSA, is heavily mutated and the confirmed cases are mostly concentrated in one province in South Africa.
Scientists say the variant has 50 mutations overall and more than 30 on the spike protein, which is the target of most vaccines and the key the virus uses to unlock the doorway into our body's cells.
Experts in South Africa have said the variant is "very different" to others that have circulated, with concerns that it could be more transmissible but also able to get around parts of the immune system.

Just a little concerning

Only problem is that omicron is a Greek letter not a made up word

I read one optimistic outcome, where Omicron is more transmissible but less dangerous than Delta, and ends up becoming the dominant strain but without making nearly as many people seriously ill

It sounds like typical overhype by the media. There’s no evidence it’s more deadly and SA’s hospital admission and death rate haven’t increased.
