just asked a colleague un ZA what's happening there. he said no real change to life, no increase in restrictions or extra push to vaccinate. Apart from giving it a name that sounds like an evil corporation in a futuristic movie no one seems very concerned.

New variants should be expected as completely normal, it's what life has done, and will continue to do, for millions of years. Mutation doesn't automatically mean worse, just different. From my limited reading, the thing with this new one is that it has quite a few more individual mutations than previous variants, so the great unknown is just how much effect the collection of mutations has.

We have to learn to live with it, in all its forms, because it's not going away any time soon, like many other things. Vaccination is not a magic bullet, it's a means of impact mitigation.

Trivia of the day.

My daughter is a classical Greek scholar and informs me that there are two o's in the classical Greek language. Omicron means small/short o (o micron) and Omega means large/long o (o mega).

That is all...move on now.
How did a go into comic books spawn a classical scholar?
