Biden declares message of doom over new Omicron variant

President Joe Biden shared a message of doom and dismay on Thursday to Americans as he shared about the spread of the Omicron variant in the U.S.

“For unvaccinated: We are looking at a winter of severe illness and death, if you’re unvaccinated,” Biden said. “For themselves, their family, and the hospital they’ll soon overwhelm.”

“Omicron is here. It’s gonna start to spread much more rapidly at the beginning of the year, and the only real protection is to get your shot,” he added.

A Change of Plans

Biden was expected to speak about supply chain issues facing America. Instead, he unleashed a gloom and doom message about Omicron.

His only answer? “If you’re vaccinated, and you have your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death. Period,” he said.

Which Is It?

In the same speech, Biden also said the data was still coming in on the effectiveness of booster shots against Omicron. The statements sound like clear contradictions rather than medical advice.

A recent report from the CDC noted, “Only 21% Of Omicron Cases Occurred In Unvaccinated People.”

This means nearly 80% of Omicron cases are among the vaccinated. Vaccination seems to not be enough, but researchers are also noting Omicron is not as severe as some other variants.

The medical advice seemed to be all over the place in Biden’s speech, something noted elsewhere as well. It may be interesting to also note that at least so far California, one of the most restrictive and highly vaccinated states, remains the top state for infections.
