  1. So, we’ve gone over 1,000.

    There appears to be an idea that Omicron is ‘mild’ and therefore less of a cause for concern.

    Even if folk don’t get as unwell with it as they would with the other variants – still – if someone tests positive they should self-isolate.
    Those in contact with them should self-isolate.
    If they are at home, the people they work with will have more work to do.
    There’s a knock-on effect in many, many ways.

    It isn’t ‘mild’ in its effects on society.

    Why do I even feel the need to draw this to people’s attention?

    The figures tell me why.
