The pandemic of the unvaccinated is here – Atlantic
Most reported U.S. Omicron cases have hit the fully vaccinated – CDC – Reuters
SARS-COV-2 B.1.1.529 (Omicron) Variant – United States, December 1-8, 2021 – CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)
“Among these cases of COVID-19 attributed to the Omicron variant, 34 (79%) occurred in persons who completed the primary series of an FDA-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine ≥14 days before symptom onset or receipt of a positive SARS-CoV-2 test result, including 14 who had received an additional or booster dose…”
Omicron wave driven by ‘young, healthy vaccinated’ population – The Telegraph
“The Omicron epidemic is being driven by young, vaccinated people, according to mounting data from countries as diverse as the UK, Denmark, and South Africa”
“Data from Denmark, a world leaders in genetic sequencing, shows that, of 3,437 omicron cases detected, just over 70% have been among those younger than 40, according to the breakdown from the Statens Serum Institut published on Monday.
Some 75% of these cases were in fully vaccinated individuals, the institute added, confirming that even the double jabbed can carry the virus.”
Cornell shuts down its Ithaca campus after significant signs of omicron variant found – NPR
“Virtually every case of the Omicron variant to date has been found in fully vaccinated students, a portion of whom had also received a booster shot. We have not seen evidence of significant disease in our students to date,” he added.”
Georgetown, NYU, and other campuses are cancelling all in person events on campus.
Mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 evolution revealing vaccine-resistant mutations in Europe and America – The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters
“By tracking the evolutionary trajectories of vaccine-resistant mutations in more than 2.2 million SARS-CoV-2 genomes, we reveal that the occurrence and frequency of vaccine-resistant mutations correlate strongly with the vaccination rates in Europe and America.”
Predominance of antibody-resistant SARS-CoV-2 variants in vaccine breakthrough cases from the San Francisco Bay Area, California – Medrxiv
“we analyzed SARS-CoV-2 whole-genome sequences and viral loads from 1,373 persons with COVID-19 from the San Francisco Bay Area from February 1 to June 30, 2021, of which 125 (9.1%) were vaccine breakthrough infections. Fully vaccinated were more likely than unvaccinated persons to be infected by variants carrying mutations associated with decreased antibody neutralization (L452R, L452Q, E484K, and/or F490S) (78% versus 48%, p = 1.96e-08)…”
They were looking at people that were infected, but the mutated strains were more common among the vaccinated, whereas the unvaccinated seemed to not carry those mutated viruses.
The picture below shows the differences in the muatations.
The mystery of where Omicron came from – and why it matters – NPR
What he is saying is that Omicron has not evolved from the original variant – there has been a jump from a year ago to this brand new Omicron variant. There is no step by step mutation.
They have no genetic information from animals to suggest that the virus went into an animal reservoir and then back to humans.
Basically, the Omicron variant came out of no where. And it could have been leaked from a lab, on purpose. This is shown on the GSAID genetic analysis of the virus and its variants, as well:
