Could Omicron be even LESS deadly than seasonal flu <0.1% mortality rate?

Could Omicron be even LESS deadly than seasonal flu? Scientists believe ultra-infectious strain may kill 100 TIMES fewer people than Delta (and mortality rates were ALREADY similar to influenza before the variant emerged)

  • Researchers expect the ultra-infectious variant to kill between 97 and 99 per cent fewer people than Delta 
  • UK advisers estimate the infection-fatality rate (IFR) it stood at 0.25 per cent before Omicron emerged
  • Others suggested it could be 0.1 per cent — similar to flu— compared to 1 per cent before the vaccine rollout
  • But experts queried 99 per cent estimate, insisting it does not look plausible and there too much uncertainty

    • Measles is one of the most contagious diseases according to the CDC, with a mortality rate of 1.45% significantly higher than COVID before Omicron at 1%. Yet we have not seen a press outcry and behavioral science teams deployed to instill fear in the general public. 

      Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.
