The European Union’s counterpart to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in an update Thursday that no deaths have been reported anywhere in the world linked to the omicron variant.
“All cases for which there is available information on severity were either asymptomatic or mild,” said the report from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
The ECDC reported 1,780 confirmed cases of the omicron variant in 57 countries worldwide.
Former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield on Thursday told “Fox & Friends” that omicron could become the dominant variant within weeks.
But he confirmed that while omicron and other new variants appear to be more contagious than previous ones, they also produces milder symptoms.
See Redfield’s remarks:
On Thursday, nevertheless, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new COVID-19 restrictions to “buy time” as the omicron variant emerges, including implementation of vaccine passes.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
