Half of Europe to be infected with Omicron within weeks says WHO – BBC News

The World Health Organization has warned that half of Europe will have been infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 within six to eight weeks.

The projection was based on the seven million new cases reported across Europe in the first week of 2022.

Recent studies suggest that Omicron is less likely to make people seriously ill than previous Covid variants, but it is still highly contagious and can infect people even if they are fully vaccinated.

    jack jones says:

    we should do some thing, lock those behind this fraud up for life.

    Benjamin Behan says:

    Within the next few weeks to 2 months. That doesn’t seem so bad

    Douglas K says:

    It’s not bad as long as you survive during that time.

    Flailmail says:

    @Douglas K easy way to survive: dont go out

    Dale de Vernon says:

    A number of medical practitioners across the world have been speaking about this variant, taking COVID into the endemic phase, it’s quite puzzling so many other medical practitioners are pushing back against it.

    Belladonnas Art of Healing says:

    @Eyes Odd Boris said 90% were not boosted, so the had the other 2 vaccines….its all a joke can’t believe all these lies….common sense tells you…its all a lie.

    @Impromptu Interviews Dont worry nobody’s going to miss you in those restaurants see ya

    Walt Jabsco says:

    @Impromptu Interviews Ah you soppy drama queen. Quite with your BS fairy tails.

    Johnathan Doe says:

    I’ve been in a Covid isolation ward, the only people who are dying from omicron are basically on their way out anyway. I saw nurses forcing an oxygen mask back on an 84 year old guy who kept trying to take it off over and over, then they had to restrain him to get the blood samples they wanted.

    What’s the point? Make him comfortable at home with pain relief and let him go peacefully.

    Johnathan Doe says:

    @M because they’re taking frail people who are 80+ into hospital, usually when they’re senile, have no quality of life left anyway, and stand little chance of survival. An utter waste of resources

    Tony Small says:

    I’m waiting for the new variant. Omicron is so last year.

    Smetkowski says:

    Have you not heard about Deltacron?

    Get The Kool says:

    Oh boy. They are just calling this new fear pusher thing “flurona”. Well, they have to justify the back of the commond cold, doesn´t they? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    AndyRob says:

    Watch. In ten years time these government officials will be trying to hide or rewrite their involvement in this as they try to hide their overreaction and their own ability to be manipulated by groups like WHO and Fauci. Just like they almost all collectively got whip lash as they backflipped on the ‘natural anything else is a conspiracy oh sorry I meant escaped from the lab all the time’ theory change earlier this year.

    Jamal says:

    True, we need a new one

    Aena 5 says:

    What a never ending clusterfuck this is.

    AnimaMea 1111 says:

    Well said

    Karim Temri says:

    Omicron will be some sort of world scale vaccination. You will see…

    Glen Brown says:

    @Karim Temri, I’m curious. Can you elaborate your prediction?

    You can thank all of the brainless, disgisting pensioners for helping the spread.

    Tomgirl says:

    They have to keep saying it’s more transmissible but they just can’t say that it’s less severe!!!! (I only watched the first minute though, mainstream leaves a nasty taste in my mouth) 🤣🤣

    Tomgirl says:

    Beep beep boop boop!!! Had covid much better than the vaccine.

    AndyRob says:

    @Joss Armitage the only bot is you. Tired old cliches. Any opinion you don’t like is a bot afraid of your shadow. WHO’s own statistics show that after 22 months 97% of the globes 7.9 billion HAVENT had Covid. Yet watch MSM you’d think it was the bubonic plague. The sheep keep believing these stories without looking behind the exaggerations.

    galenvanbrok says:

    They are narrowly holding the narrative together now. CNN are now just coming ou with it now but the BBC is still holding the line. So sad.

    Tomgirl says:

    @galenvanbrok yeah the BBC that’s lied for forever on having detective license vans!!!

    Toothache Forever says:

    @Joss Armitage My initial dose of the astrazenica vaccine – fever and fatigue that lasted 3 days was 10x worse than Omicron. Omicron was one of the mildest illnesses I’ve ever had, easier than many colds.

    Dan Channer says:

    As usual, the WHO is 5-6 weeks behind the curve.

    Geegee Poo says:

    That’s not the meaning of Endemic! Endemic means identified infection circulating in a country.

    Olga S-Cruz says:

    Endemic can be used to mean something that has now become part of the environment. Endemic species to an area are species that originate in that area. When a disease becomes endemic (like Zika became in Brazil), it means it’s now part of the viruses that will not be wiped out, but continue to circulate in that area.

    Stu Crossland says:

    GB news are putting out some good content in the evening.Neil Oliver in particular.

    You for real? Why are you listening to a TV presenter’s view?

    Omar Amoodi says:

    Hav’nt the WHO got more important things to be concerned with, like all the cholera Malaria outbreaks throughout the world’s refugee camps, & children starving . What sort of WHO is this that priorities an endemic when there’s far more serious illnesses/problems to deal with. And why are we worried about something that might happen, it’s more than likely that whatever exaggerated claims they claim won’t be true.

    Robert Jones says:

    The virus must have caused the 12 years of underfunding that the NHS has experienced

    Mister Mason says:

    I just got done having the new variant. All I can say is it moved fast. Specially if you have Crohn’s disease to.

    jack jones says:

    @Mister Mason last time i was 9 years ago i lost my taste and smell and did not feel like eating. its never nice to be ill. did you test yourself with the test that knows you are ill when you are not ill? when i was last ill years ago no test was available to see what i had so i just rested for 3 or 4 days. hang on?? well the pcr test was invented in 1983 wasnt it?? so why didnt we test back then? i seem to remember people always getting ill in the winter, dont you remember that? where did the flu go?

    Frg C says:

    @mister mason how are you feeling now? I’ve also got Chrons. Recently my whole family went down with Omicron and it was mild-moderate for all of them even those with health complications. For some reason I didn’t get it. Maybe I already have antibodies? Anyway hope it didn’t cause you to flare.

    Mister Mason says:

    @Frg C Feeling fine and already back to work. The only effect it had on my Crohn’s was I had diarrhea for a whole day. Lost 9 pounds overall lol. So covid is a good weight loss program. I just don’t recommend it 😂

    Mister Mason says:

    @Phil Lawrence Blood test. I took 4 overall and all came back Omicron except 1 which showed Delta and omicron.

    Mister Mason says:

    @jack jones idk I’m not a doctor.

    Matt Walker says:

    because of the recent booster bonanza there has been a rise in hospitalisations and if booster rates continues at this unnecessary speed we expect them to just keep rising rapidly

    galenvanbrok says:

    They sht themselvez when omicron arrived. Their whole masks. lockdown and vax narrative fell apart overnight. Omicron is unstoppable but incredibly mild and vaccine immune. Pfizer have thousand of gallons of vaccine that will be worthless in a few weeks. The boosters were an attempt to use up their soon worthless inventory.

    Mark Wakefield says:

    The WHO have really been very slow in acknowledging this to the point that it illustrates more about the WHO than COVID-19.

    The Great Ah Gou says:

    WHO is China’s lackey, they fucked up at the very beginning of the pandemic when Taiwan warned about human-human transmission. It’s a political organization that only has “health” in the name.

    ___________ says:

    Does anyone remember in March 2020 when people were begging the WHO to declare a pandemic just so that it would be made official? The WHO is grossly incompetent and criminally negligent. Remember when they were saying no human transmission when other people were saying to mask up?

    Snüp-Dio DubbleGee says:

    @The Great Ah Gou Theyve literally co opted the world….these arent our allies.

    jack jones says:

    the who are a fraud and the pandemic is a fraud too. lies. where did the flu go?

    Israel Elohim says:

    Those who follow the way of fear, will find the very thing that they fear overcoming them.

    TheRubberStudiosASMR says:

    We have nothing to fear but fear itself

    Israel Elohim says:

    @Macavity did you know that loathing is a disease ? Agape to you. Hope you recover.

    Macavity says:

    @Israel Elohim A) Quite obviously it isn’t. B) Not being able to express yourself in rational terms, like you, isn’t either. It’s just embarrassing for you. You should stop.

    Israel Elohim says:

    @Macavity once again Agape to you. Have a great day.

    Macavity says:

    @Israel Elohim Still embarrassing for you

    Peter Sullivan says:

    If the same number of governments and people reacted as hesitantly as they have in real life, but in the Pandemic game, I would have had much better scores.

    The Dutton Wanch says:

    This is even more true especially for me, the council are forcing me to let workmen into my house and install new gas heating even though i told them i don’t use gas nor never used it before, i am happy with my electric heating. But the council say because I’m a council Tennant i have to let in any workmen for any upgrade.

    Mia 🥂T[A]P Me!! to Have [𝐒]𝐄𝐗 With 𝐌𝐞 says:

    More highly transmittable but much less powerful compared to delta and previous variant, thanks for the intellectual honesty 🙂

    YeeManLearning says:

    Do you still trust the WHO when we’re trapped for nearly 2yrs of the lockdown because the chairman of the WHO’s first warning of Covid-19 were delayed? Did anyone of the WHO take the responsibility? What’s the reputation of an organisation and the responsibilities of the WHO?
