The Left is turning to the CDC to continue the pandemic. As the Omicron variant is significantly reduced, the Left is being cornered to keep the mandates.
According to a recent paper, the omicron wave that has whiplashed the world with surging cases has peaked after approximately four weeks in a large South African hospital in the City of Tshwane, where the global outbreak first started.
The rapid rise and decline of admissions and decreased severity of COVID-19 disease, a comparison of now 466 patients to 3976 patients in previous waves.
Omicron has shown to be a lower mortality rate compared to previous variant waves.
The previous ‘holiday surge’ for multiple countries has seen a significant hospitalization decline as well, with the CDC confirming a massive reduction from 73 perfect COVID-19 infections as of Christmas Day to 59 percent of COVID-19 infections currently.
The CDC has also decided to cut isolation periods from 10 days to five due to the severity of catching the omicron variant is.
A recent research paper, which is not yet peer-reviewed, noted that the mortality rate among hospitalizations with the omicron variant was approximately 4.7 times lower than the earlier period, along with the discharge rate among hospitalized patients with omicron was twice as fast than patients without the omicron variant. At the peak of the surge, the hospital was half as full with infected COVID-19 patients as the 19-month period before the omicron outbreak.
The research showed that on the COVID-19 wards, only 45% of patients needed oxygen supplementation, compared to prior, which was more than a 50% difference.
The research suggests that the omicron wave may also peak in a similar pattern in other provinces but may differ greatly, where “levels of hybrid immunity” and the mix of natural immunity from prior infection and vaccination are different.
The research shows that individuals with natural immunity and “hybrid immunity” have a significantly lower notice to the omicron waves and peak patterns presented in South Africa.
With CDC and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky noting to reporting on Friday that she’s “cautiously optimistic” of the “ice-pick” shape of South African omicron curve that declined rapidly.
While she stated the cautious optimism, over the Omicron wave, in the U.S., Walensky continually to defect the fact that the majority of COVID deaths and hospitalizations were due to other comorbidities and not because of COVID alone.
Speaking with Bret Baier, Baier asked, “Do you know how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are from COVID or how many are with COVID, but they had other comorbidities? Do you have that breakdown?
“Yes, of course, with omicron, we’re following that very carefully,” Walensky responded. “Our death registry, of course, takes a few weeks… to collect. And, of course, omicron has just been with us for a few weeks. But those data will be forthcoming.”
Her answer only frustrated the Biden White House critics who have been asking about that distinction about COVID-related deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
The pressing matter comes in with the hesitancy to release this information and the accurate hospitalization information with the Omicron wave being reduced in all areas from London to Japan, South Africa, and the United States.
With the pediatric COVID hospitalization numbers off dramatically, the Omicron holiday wave over, and the severity of the pandemic being similar to the common flu, both the CDC and the Democratic states are struggling to rationalize their reasoning to keep mandates, vaccination requirements, and authoritarian governing going.
