Who could've predicted that wealthy countries hoarding the vaccines and not ensuring the entire world could get access could mean that mutations could arise that would make said vaccines worthless?

Totally irrational behaviour. Nationalist solutions aren't solutions to these global catastrophes.

What a shock that the WHO seems to have skipped a letter of Greek alphabet and gone to Omnicrom. Cant have the worst strain having the same name as their paymaster even if he is the main person to blame for millions of deaths so far.

I like that Omicron sounds like Macron

makes it that bit harder for the campaigner to get re-elected if the strain blows up

imagine if just before the election next year a ‘new’ strain was ‘discovered’ and named the Albanese, but luckily here is this (prepared earlier) vaccine we’ve called the Scomo 😒

Stopping incoming overseas travellers is critical right now so time can bought to determine the characteristics of this new virus. There is definite concerns that all the current vaccines are now null and void and new suite of vaccines will need to be implemented should this variant prove to have immune escape. It definitely just as or even more contagious than the delta variant however there is not enough evidence as yet on how damaging or deadly this variant can be. Looks like we are holding our breaths again in case we have to start over with restrictions since 2020.

Interesting to hear that the new variant was spawned by patient that had HIV in their system. Probably a nightmare scenario if SARS & HIV were able to form an airborne hybrid virus.

I live in SA I’d liken it more to Joseph Stalin. I can’t even go clubbing here and we’ve barely touched 100 cases since mid July when we locked down over 2 cases. I can’t eat and drink in a mall when covid ridden places like NSW and VIC can do as they please. bye felecia
I came back home to SA after being separated from my family for 4 months. It's just so great to be home with my family after so long. Thank you so much to the 80% fully vaccinated and the near 90% first dosed.
It's also reassuring that some minimal steps have been taken to protect the idiot fringe from themselves.
You should be thankful that the authoritiies care more about your safety and the safety of your loved ones than you do.

Do you believe viruses are alive, chief?

If so, why don't you look into the Science for yourself?
"Alive" is a good enough shorthand when talking about viruses in here, with your friends, in the news.

You can worry about the exact terminology when you become a virologist talking to other virologists.

OK?

If you want to discuss the philosophy of what is and is not "alive", that's something people will probably oblige you with, too.

It's good to reminisce on those halcyon days when the vaccines were authorised for emergency use because they supposedly gave 95% protection from infection. All that talk of herd immunity and R0 brings a tear to my eye.
Why won't you get vaxxed though? Well, at least everything you've posted suggests you're afraid of vaccines.
