Former President Donald Trump dropped the hammer on President Joe Biden calling for Biden to resign due to his handling of the virus. Trump said:
“Biden said that he was going to beat the virus, but instead, the virus has beaten him, and badly. Far more people died this year than last, despite tremendous help from vaccines and therapeutics developed under Trump.
“He said anybody with his results should leave office. Well Joe, what are you waiting for.” Trump also remarked on David perdue running for Governor of Georgia. Trump said:
“Wow, it looks like highly respected Senator David Perdue will be running against RINO Brian Kemp for Governor of Georgia.
“David was a great Senator, and he truly loves his State and his Country. This will be very interesting, and I can’t imagine that Brian Kemp can do well at the ballot box.
“He cost us two Senate seats and a Presidential victory in the Great State of Georgia.”
Of omicron’s many mutations, about 30 of them are on a part of the virus called the spike protein. That concerns scientists because it could affect how transmissible the variant is.
Sharon Peacock, who has led genetic sequencing of COVID-19 in Britain at the University of Cambridge, said the data so far suggest the new variant has mutations “consistent with enhanced transmissibility,” but said that “the significance of many of the mutations is still not known.”
But scientists who’ve gotten a close look also note omicron lacks some of the mutations that delta has that make it highly contagious. There’s a chance the delta variant, the dominant strain in the U.S. right now, is still more transmissible than omicron, so omicron may never take off.
“That’s really the big question. You know, when it gets into a population that has Delta, is it going to out-compete or not out-compete?” Robert Garry, a virologist at Tulane University, told CNN.
