President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the new omicron variant of COVID-19 | USA Today

The omicron variant first discovered in South Africa last week is likely to quickly spread around the globe, possibly with "severe consequences," the World Health Organization warned Monday.

"There could be future surges of COVID-19, which could have severe consequences depending on a number of factors including where surges may take place," the WHO said in a technical brief. "The overall global risk related to the (omicron variant) is assessed as very high."

The WHO said there is currently no information to suggest symptoms associated with omicron differ from those associated with other variants. No deaths linked to the omicron variant have been reported, WHO added.

The U.S. will need about two more weeks to learn more definitive information about the omicron variant's transmissibility and severity, Dr. Anthony Fauci told President Joe Biden on Sunday, the White House said in a statement. The variant already has been identified in countries across the world, including France, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong.

  1. And while he brags about his vigilance with no travel orders and lies about testing and vaccination requirements at airports, he lets thousands of undocumented immigrants enter over the southern borders without any COID restrictions any transports them throughout the country.

    1. Because he’s just a puppet of the system. He has actual dementia, the man can barely put together a sentence when reading off a teleprompter.

    2. The Democrats need them pouring over the border, they need the midterm votes, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democrats where handing out stacks of empty ballots and stamps as they cross…..

    3. Along with free airline tickets to the red states and free housing in districts the democrats fall short in every year…. Its called the Democrat way of gerrymandering….

  2. We’re so scared. Thank goodness that you’ve given us an update way to bounce around and not letting us know what’s really going on in our country. Let’s go Brandon

  3. Although “dislikes” are turned off (we know what you’re doing YT), the comment section still tells the story. FJB and FYT

  4. “Three billion human lives ended on December 29, 2021. The survivors of the Omicron wave called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare: the war against the Machines.“

  5. “It’s called the omnicron.” I thought it was omicron. Took him all of 25 seconds to f*ck up. That might be a record for ol’ Joe!

  6. “Omnicron.” He said it again at one minute in. And he slurred something about slowing the speed right before that. Holy sh*t, this guy is out of it. And he’s getting worse, which was, of course, to be expected.

    1. I know right?
      I saw the same thing, this guy’s soooo brain-numb…… His whole administration is CRINGING as he’s walking out to make any kind of speech.

  7. Hahaha, they removed the dislikes. Now we can simply see how many views + comments a video gets and how many upvotes it has. Let’s go, Brandon!
