I'd bet you a bottle of Black Nikka, China is top of the pops, considering the low vaccination rates and the sudden opening up!!! All in all, Japan has done and is doing alright.

The vaccines are working exactly as advertised.!. Each new variant of Covid has been deadlier than the previous strains . But for the vaccines saving lives , the number of deaths would surpass delta .!. There’s nothing “mild” about omicron .!. It’s scientific proof the vaccines are working.!.

But for Covid, 147 otherwise perfectly healthy people wouldn’t be dead had they been vaccinated with the scientifically proven safe and effective vaccines

Why do you assume they were "perfectly healthy" and why do you assume they were unvaccinated?

There’s nothing “mild” about omicron .!

Omicron IS milder; more people died because many more got infected. Your comment is like saying "water is deadlier than cyanide, there is nothing mild about water!" just because more people died from drowning than from cyanide poisoning.

Omicron IS milder

Not so fast Raw Beer. Word around the campfire is that immunity from past infections AND vaccines are making Omicrom APPEAR milder.

I'd thought you knew that.

Moreover the data show clearly that the case fatality rate has never been as low as it is now. So stop your fanatic nonsense.
