The South African doctor who alerted his country and the world to the existence of the Omicron mutation of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus has made it clear that the mutation doesn’t seem to spread as quickly as the Delta “variant,” and it’s not particularly deadly.
There has, as of yet, been no uptick in hospitalizations in South Africa as those who have caught the Omicron variant experience only mild to moderate symptoms.
However, the facts haven’t gotten in the way of official fearmongering amongst those who want to use the emergence of new variants to push their own agenda.
Frank Ulrich Montgomery, head of the World Medical Association, is telling anyone who will listen that the CCP Virus could one day mutate into a strain as contagious as the Delta variant and as deadly as Ebola.
Not surprisingly, his “solution” to the problem is to create a dystopian world that would make the lockdowns of 2020 look like a walk in the park.
He is urging his home country Germany to shut down Christmas markets throughout the nation and ban fireworks, festivities, and “private gluttony.”
The meaning of the latter phrase isn’t clear, but it appears to be a reference to Christmas dinners and feasting with family members and friends.
Naturally, Montgomery is also pushing vaccines as the answer to the problem, stating without apology that it could be necessary to vaccinate the world for years to come.
It’s not implausible that a pandemic far deadlier than the current one could emerge in the coming years.
Medical professionals have long speculated that a truly deadly pandemic could emerge at some point in the future.
Experts blame the disappearance of natural habitats for closer human-animal interaction which could afford dangerous pathogens the opportunity to jump from animal hosts to humans.
Once a disease makes the leap, it can mutate as different people catch the sickness, and there is no telling if the mutations will be more or less deadly than the original disease.
The fact that the world has become increasingly interconnected makes it easy for a disease in one part of the world to spread to other countries before other nations realize what is happening and take measures to close their borders.
As the world saw with the spread of the CCP Virus, a contagious disease will spread even amidst lockdowns and other preventative measures.
While governments can stop the spread of diseases to a certain extent, they can’t fully eliminate a pandemic once it gets rolling.
Even so, deadly pathogens aren’t the only danger facing mankind.
As the CCP Virus pandemic has clearly shown, ordinary people have much to fear from politicians and bureaucrats eager to use the fear of a deadly disease to eliminate basic rights and freedoms.
Some nations and even states have taken to using drones to spy on citizens and enforce social distancing, others have forced citizens to stay within a certain distance from their homes, while still others have opened “quarantine camps” for infected citizens.
In the United States, President Biden’s jab mandates have forced tens of millions of people to choose between getting a questionable shot or losing their jobs.
There is much that isn’t known about the Omicron variation of the CCP Virus, but it does appear its mutations have destabilized it and made it less transmissible than the Delta variant.
Comparing it with Ebola, a disease with a death rate of up to 90%, seems both premature and foolhardy at this point.
However, common sense and a lack of information haven’t stopped medical experts from whipping up fear over the newfound variant and pushing for new restrictions on businesses and individuals who are still recovering from the devastating 2020 lockdowns.
It remains to be seen if politicians will go along with the hysteria and use the new variant as an excuse for stripping away citizen rights; unfortunately, the current administration has already shown that it cares little about its citizens’ rights, and it’s not implausible that the Omicron variant could be used an excuse for speeding even further down the path to totalitarianism.
