Omicron versus Delta - Finally data

15-20% less likely to need hospital care with omicron v delta
if you’ve had covid before, 50-60% less likely
BUT risk of hospitalisation same for delta & omicron if you’ve had just 2 vaccine doses.

Detailed study just released from Imperial College London here is attached.

Friends in LocalCircles may see how this applies to India as far as hospital preparedness goes and share the same with Govt more

Unlike Delta which had symptoms such as the virus strain's affect on the oflactory sense, and breathing, omicron's symptomatic signals till now, have been absent. Consequently, people are responding in a gung ho fashion, intermingling and socialising, since humans behaviorally react immediately in response to how they feel. The mind thinks thereafter. After seeing so many restrictions mood is buoyant. The socio-psychographics too reflect this trend. This could be good for we need positivity too. Positivity that gives us a theraputic upliftment. Presciptive science will follow the descriptive parameters once this gets more clear. more  
Appreciate Nikita for this information more

Are you even competent to question her competence? She has shared data from Imperial College London, one of the worlds finest medical research centers. Have you even heard of it? more  
Omicron Variant Omicron exhibits multiple mutations in the receptor-binding domain (RBD) and the N-terminal domain (NTD) that are associated with more efficient cell entry, immune evasion, and increased infectivity. Although information is still emerging, it now appears certain that Omicron may be 2 to 3 times more transmissible than Delta, and vaccination effectiveness against Omicron is also likely diminished. Still, 2 doses of the BNT162b2 (Pfizer-BioNTech) vaccine provides 70% protection against severe complications from COVID-19 requiring hospitalization but only 33% protection against SARS-CoV-2 laboratory-confirmed symptomatic infection (based on data from a non–peer-reviewed report of 581 symptomatic Omicron cases, 56 439 Delta cases, and 130 867 test-negative controls).5 Giving a booster increases the protection against symptomatic infection with Omicron to about 75%. Another non–peer-reviewed report based on 30 individuals who had previous SARS-CoV-2 infection suggests that prior infection-induced immunity offers no protection, but people who previously had COVID-19 and received at least a dose of an mRNA vaccine are also protected against Omicron.6 Data are more limited in terms of severity of illness but there is currently no clear evidence that Omicron causes more severe disease, with some reports from South Africa suggesting illness may be milder than that associated with the Delta variant.7 However, reports of decreased disease severity may be confounded by the younger age of early case patients as well as the lag between cases and an increase in hospitalization and deaths. A recent report from Denmark involving 785 cases with the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant suggests that Omicron may not be a less severe infection than that caused by Delta.8 Another concern is that most of the monoclonal antibodies currently authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration (with the possible exception of sotrovimab) have little or no in vitro activity against Omicron.9 Variant-specific data on the effectiveness of antiviral treatments including remdesivir, molnupiravir, and nirmatrelvir are not yet available, but because more  
Using Greek words like alpha delta theta Gama omega etc are fooling people. This is not a pandemic only propagangist mindset. I feel 😔 fir all the 🌍 more
