    Good thing the pandemic is over, according to some learned twats on Geoexpat.

    If the initial fears of this being sufficiently different to the original covid-19 virus to render vaccines significantly less effective come true then it is going to provoke a big policy re-think in developed nations.
    Of course it can't be contained, moronic to even suggest it might have been.

    Have you literally learned nothing in these 2 years?

    Classic endemic viral evolution, welcome to the latest incarnation of the annual flu.

    Now shut up and get back to work.

    Damn, I lose, I had voted Monday. Well there are now some quarantine hotel rooms available for the Christmas rush...now it's just a question of when the UK ban comes when 2 or 3 more of the new omicron variant are detected there- just in time for Lunar New Year returnees...

    the only sure thing is that the “experts“ will continue to be given full rein over every aspect of people's lives, issuing contradicting directives with straight faces, while life as we once knew is dangled further and further away

    It's an uncharacteristically moderate response to only put the countries in Group A rather than to outright ban. Progress of sorts.

    You could substitute HIV patient for cancer patient, organ transplantee, or anyone taking immunosuppressive drugs. It's the reduced ability to kill off the virus or to suppress it to stop it mutating.

    That's very high. I don't follow Hong Kong anymore, but I believe our 7 day rate is well, well below 1, if not below 0.1

    And sure we should take serious precautions about new strains.
    Vaccinations modify behaviour and behaviour is the biggest determinant of virus spread.

    Ha ha, it's only fair that those HK twats get a taste of their own medicine, after it's been massively preventing people from other countries from visiting HK.

    That's what you get for reporting every infection caught in quarantine as if it would matter.
