The omicron variant has several mutations that scientists say are worrisome, including ones known to help the virus evade the immune system. More data is needed — but here's what we know so far.

Ohio’s abortion trigger law could outlaw in vitro fertilization: Today in Ohio

Editor Chris Quinn hosts Today in Ohio, cleveland.com's daily half-hour news podcast, today with city hall reporter Courtney Astolfi, editorial board member Lisa Garvin and content director Laura Johnston. Read more >>

They've been saying this about the mutations. Figures! Lets lock people up again during the mutations..at least the drug companies are coming up with the oral form. Oh no, now they'll call for mail-in ballots for the midterms. How convenient. China made a good one eh? OmicronVariant has caused particularly sharp rise in cases in Pretoria, where it went from being essentially undetectable several weeks ago to now dominating outbreak in a major city. Cases also cropped up in Botswana, Belgium, Hong Kong & Israel ...

We need to increase hospital capacity and learn to live with covid. Like we do with cancer, car accidents and heart disease. We can’t lock down every few months. Wow! I’m worried now, we should definitely continue mail-in voting through the mid-terms. Otherwise we’re all gonna die, right? The name Omicron definitely sounds like a virus that could end humanity. Or maybe an AI that creates the Matrix. COVID19 covidvariant Omicron

Ummm wtf Is pandemic life just going to be perpetual? 😞 ALL OF A SUDDEN 'NEW SUPER VARIANT' Now came from S Africa. We need more Mandates world wide. No push for vax and natural remedies or natural remedies stay active LIFE STYLE CHANGES to enhance your natural IMMUNE SYSTEM. JUST FEAR, Now Blame AFRICA who had lower covid issues.

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesWill it be called buck and quarter store now? They should just rebrand to $2 tree and just be over it. Good for the next 35 years then. Really! Be better! The CEO makes $11 million a year!!!!!!!! Report on that! Or that their profits are well into the billions! Shame on you feeding the story the 'poor cooperations' are suffering.

We’re gonna need like 3 more vaxxes. Big Pharma:”cha-ching!!!” 💰💰💰💵💵 What difference does it make? Allopathic medicine couldn’t care less about environmental illness and the chickens are coming home to roost. So screw em! If they don’t care why should I? I’m vaccinated but I don’t think that matters. I’ve accepted that were all gonna die from these virus mutations

The antivax/propandemic crowd are the pathetic rodents who are at fault for these mutations. Don't bother replying to my tweet if you're an anti-vax, anti-mask, or pro-pandemic, Your opinion doesn't matter, it really doesn't. Full of speculation and bs! “We don’t know yet, we need more data but here’s what we believe…”. Belief isn’t science! What kind of speculative bs is this, NPR? For profit media sells news through fear, NPR receives funding from the govt and donations so why the need for FUD?

Silver lining: 'Omicron' sounds way scarier than COVID-19, IMO. Like an apocalyptic Transformer. Maybe it'll encourage ppl to get vaxxed 😏 For those of us who are 3 doses in and already practicing sensible mitigation strategies, this changes nothing. Just do what you do. Let the experts obsess over new variants.

It’s hard not to wonder if this is somehow Mother Earth’s attempt to get rid of an invasive, destructive species.

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesIt's not progress. It's a one-time victory. Our justice system will likely commit another outrage before the year's out. From every hilltop None of this matters, theyll all have shattered dreams in a few years

I feared this would happen. Stay Safe Everyone! God Help Us! Engage the fear machine Zzzzzzzz good luck And if we would all vaccinate, it would be a moot point. *sigh*
