Dr Angelique Coetzee explains Omicron variant symptoms, S.African doctor says patients have “very mild” symptoms, Travel bans appear to be huge over reactions
“The vaccine doesn’t do anything to help you. It doesn’t. We think it caused the Delta variant. The nurses, among ourselves, we all talk. It got worse after the vaccine. It was hardcore. It was bad. A lot of people died. And I’m talking – we were losing 20-year-olds. The first Covid wave took the lives of older people with a lot of illnesses. The delta wave was mostly obese people, I will say that, but we lost people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s – you name it.”...Nurse Helen Smith
“I’m not afraid of blowing the whistle “because my faith lies in God and not man … You know, like what kind of person would I be if I knew all of this — this is evil at the highest level. You have the FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration], you have the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] CDC, that are both supposed to be protecting us, but they are under the government, and everything that we’ve done so far is unscientific.”..Jodi O’Malley registered nurse
“Because COVID vaccines use experimental technology that may pose serious side effects such as blood clots, Yeadon said, “we should absolutely not be offering them to young, healthy people who are not at risk from the virus.””..Dr. Mike Yeadon, former vice president of Pfizer

“S.African doctor says patients with Omicron variant have “very mild” symptoms
A South African doctor who was one of the first to suspect a different coronavirus strain among patients said on Sunday that symptoms of the Omicron variant were so far mild and could be treated at home.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, a private practitioner and chair of South African Medical Association, told Reuters that on Nov. 18 she noticed seven patients at her clinic who had symptoms different from the dominant Delta variant, albeit “very mild”.
Now designated Omicron by the World Health Organization, the variant was detected and announced by South Africa’s National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) on Nov. 25 from samples taken from a laboratory from Nov. 14 to Nov. 16.
Coetzee said a patient on Nov. 18 reported at her clinic being “extremely fatigued” for two days with body aches and headache.
“Her experience so far has been that the variant is affecting people who are 40 or younger. Almost half of the patients with Omicron symptoms that she treated were not vaccinated.
“The most predominant clinical complaint is severe fatigue for one or two days. With them, the headache and the body aches and pain.”
The news of the new variant emerging from South Africa prompted a swift reaction from several countries, including Britain, which on Friday imposed a travel ban on several southern African countries with immediate effect, a decision South Africa has strongly contested.”
Travel bans appear to be huge over reactions.
