Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One question is answered: how contagious is Omnicron?

Dr. Tedros: "Omicron is spreading at a rate we have not seen with any previous variant."

Omicron is rising rapidly in the US--3% of cases nationally, 13% in NY and NJ

Currently, the US is seeing around 120,000 new COVID cases per day, a 49 percent increase over two weeks ago. The country is averaging 66,500 hospitalizations a day, which is a 22 percent increase. For now, nearly all of the cases and hospitalizations are due to delta, but that will likely change quickly with omicron.

We should have a good idea of its virulence in about 10 to 14 days.
