    This is truly excellent news. It is a shame it doesn't mention if this reduction is due to vaccinations or Omicron being inherently less serious. If its the latter, then it should be the beginning of the end of the pandemic

    Another dumb comment, as usual you have to be spoonfed to understand covid

    The trend was clear months ago to those who can think for themselves and don’t live in perpetual fear of the unknown.

    It's a bit of both. Posted an article a week or so ago. Vaccinated people experience no or mild symptoms with few exceptions, unvaccinated are still seeing serious outcomes however they aren't seeing people showing up at ERs who can't breath properly, as well as fewer intubations and ICU admissions needed compared to the wave this time last year.

    What you write is misleading the 91% (varies between studies and groups naturally) is essentially true whether you're vaccinated or not.

    Of course vaccines make severity of infection less, but the relationship between the reduction of severity in vaccinated is approximately the same as the reduction in severity amongst unvaccinated. (at least in line with the margin for error we see in measuring severity based on a whole host of other variables - age, comorbidities, geography, immunity history etc)

    So no, it's not
    a bit of both
    , omi is less severe in relation to delta because it has reduced potential for causing problematic symptoms whether you're vaccinated or not.

    Japan said Friday it will shorten the quarantine period for travelers arriving in the country to 10 days from the current 14, effective Saturday.
