Thanks @snaps the very reason I created this thread:
The virologist said that the omicron strain is of artificial origin
RAS virologist Chumakov said that the omicron-strain of coronavirus could be created artificially
MOSCOW, December 15 - RIA Novosti. The Omicron strain of the coronavirus could have been artificially created to end the pandemic. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences , head of the cell proliferation laboratory at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences Pyotr Chumakov announced this on the air of Radio Russia .
According to the scientist, the omicron collected all the mutations of the previous variants of SARS-CoV-2, but added a “insert of three amino acids”, the appearance of which is impossible in a natural way: the result was a “super-weakened strain”, which, however, spreads with much greater faster than delta and can bypass vaccines. Nevertheless, the omicron does not cause serious consequences for today.

Moderna assessed the likelihood of infection with “omicron” and “delta” at once
“It can infect quite a lot of people who have already been vaccinated. But their disease is mild. Among the unvaccinated, there are no very severe cases either. That is, it seems that this is a strain that spreads very quickly and is easily tolerated. This is very good,” - Chumakov considers.
The new SARS-CoV-2 strain was first identified in Botswana and South Africa on the twentieth of November. It contains dozens of mutations in the S-protein, which the pathogen needs to infect cells. Presumably, this variant originally developed in the body of an immunocompromised person - probably infected with HIV.
The World Health Organization has designated B.1.1.529 as “of concern” and named it “omicron” after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. Experts believe that even those who have been ill and vaccinated can become infected, and symptoms range from fatigue to headaches and body aches. At the same time, as noted by the director of the Gamaleya Center Alexander Gintsburg , the vaccinated patients have a mild disease.

Gunzburg answered the question whether Sputnik V protects against the omicron strain
The delta strain B.1.617.2, first discovered in India last year, is now dominant in many states , but scientists admit that it will be replaced by the omicron. According to the latest data, there are cases of infection with it in at least 70 countries.
Has the Menace has been out flanked?
They have been incredibly spooked and moved fast to boost the consolidation of power and try leverage it using the rinse & repeat script, and it’s not working, you can see a universal increduality in the reaction online. Everything has been too much too fast, 3 shots in less than 9 months, with no pay off, such a compelling sell you have to keep locking people down, attacking their way of life and their children to sell it.
Ok, Did the Russian release it or what?
Who moves and what next?
