Fauci Announces Nation’s First Case of Omicron Covid Variant — A Fully Vaccinated Traveler from California

The ‘Omicron’ Covid variant has been detected in a fully vaccinated individual in California who just returned from traveling in South Africa, the CDC announced Wednesday.

“The individual is self quarantining and all close contacts have been contacted and all close contacts, thus far, have tested negative,” Fauci announced at a White House press briefing. “We feel good that this patient not only had mild symptoms, but actually the symptoms appear to be improving.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom said there is no reason to panic and urged people to get vaccinated and wear a mask indoors.

Earlier this week Joe Biden used the media-induced panic over the new Omicron variant to push vaccines and booster shots as Big Pharma conveniently has booster shots waiting in the wings.

The Omicron-infected individuals identified in Africa and Australia are also fully vaccinated.

According to numerous reports, patients infected with the Omicron variant are showing very mild symptoms.

On Monday, the Assistant Minister of Health and Wellness testified during a parliament hearing that not one of the Omicron variant cases identified needs oxygen support and hospitalization.

According to Assistant Minister Sethomo Lelatisitswe, Botswana has still 15 ‘Omicron’ variant cases, 3 of the patients showed mild symptoms while the rest did not. Of those 15 cases, 11 were vaccinated, while those 4 unvaccinated did not show symptoms at all, Lelatisitswe said.
