COVID-19 Omicron Variant is Not Less Severe

(Disclaimer: The World Health Organization <WHO> has officially named the new coronavirus as SARS-CoV-2 <severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus #2> and the disease it causes as COVID-19 <coronavirus infectious disease of 2019>.  Because the majority of people, including much of the press, commonly refer to the virus as “COVID-19” or “COVID,” to avoid confusion, I use COVID-19 as the name of the virus.)

The omicron COVID-19 variant should be respected as much as any other form of the virus. U.S. deaths are higher than from the delta variant at its peak.

I’ve heard it suggested that letting yourself get infected with the omicron variant is a way to become immune to COVID-19.

RColumbia virologist Dr. Vincent Racaniello discusses the “mildness” of the    omicron  variant with Dr. Daniel Griffin, a New York physician in Columbia’ s Department of Infectious Diseases. Listen to minute 15:00-16:10 of Dr. Racaniello’s TWiV (This Week in Virology) podcast #859, which is also Dr. Griffin’s clinical update #99.
