    Isn't the big question about new variants? Are China transparently publishing their data on sequencing they are doing?

    Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, pointed out there were likely billions of omicron infections worldwide this year, but no new Covid variant has emerged, only subvariants of omicron.

    “That’s why I would put the risk as quite low that there is a dangerous new variant in China,” he said. He noted that “some very special characteristics” would be needed for a new variant to emerge and replace omicron.

    The variant was first detected in South Africa more than a year ago. Omicron is far more transmissible, but causes less severe disease, than when Covid first emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019.

    Well China does have "very special characteristics" for viruses, apparently, which is why we got here in the first place! Starting with lack of hand soap and handwashing habits.

    Those two words should never ever be used in the same sentence, which should answer your question.

    Hopefully HK is sharing so travel hassles are kept to a minimum for the cities residents
