First Omicron Variant Case Detected In U.S.; Case Is Mild, Officials Say | The Daily Wire


That’s the most common word I hear about this variant. Well, that and “LOCKDOWN!!!11!!!”

Maybe we should pay attention to the first word before grasping at the second.

Dr. Anthony Fauci told reporters at the White House Wednesday that the Omicron variant has been found in a person in California. The person had recently returned from South Africa, according to the Associated Press. “We knew it was just a matter of time before the first case of omicron would be detected in the United States,” said Fauci.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the person is exhibiting only mild symptoms.

In response to the development, California Governor Gavin Newsom emphasized there was “no reason to panic,” but insisted that Americans should get vaccinated and stay indoors.

Translation: don’t panic…err…panic a little!

The first advice was better. Don’t panic about this variant. In fact, stop panicking period.
