Omicron is unavoidable and will force herd immunity on society regardless of restrictions or lockdowns.

This is not an easy message to convey, even to those who have have already accepted that zero-covid was toast. Essentially everyone will eventually get infected by SARS-CoV-2 in the near future, and likely more than once in their lifetime.

One can don an FFP2, FFP3, N95 mask, or a hazmat suit, or whatnot, but at this stage, all this may achieve is to delay the time until some of us will get infected, and thereby marginally prolong the pandemic.

There is no Public Health justification to mandate these “leaky vaccines” for Omicron a “generally mild” viral strain that is similar to the Common Cold.

While the vaccine may be better than catching Delta without treatment it is a challenging question if we compare it to Omicron which appears to have 35 times less hospitalisations.
