Anyone fancy a sportsman's bet with me that Omicron will be the variant that turns this 2 year pandemic to an endemic?

Hate to be a gloomster but according to the iSage scientists: 1. there is no reason to assume that new variant will follow Omicron; 2. the four benign coronavirus' that lead to the common cold tok hundreds of years to evolve.

Having said that, I do hope we will be in endemic post-Omicron, and that will be in early 2022.

Endemic implies the virus is prevalent in some parts of the world and not in others. If vaccination efficacy is very high, we developed countries might well be safe (in the short term). What's critical is to start allowing lesser developed countries to produce the vaccine license free.

Too early to tell, but apparently the common cold may also help protect against COVID. I hope so because my nose is like a tap right now, I bloody hate colds.

Let's hope something like that does emerge to totally subdue COVID. Good luck with the cold you have.

Yes it was from memory and tailored to suit our predicament. . I remember a lot of it....still listen to it now from time to time.....one of my all time favourite albums. pretty much unheard of here in Canada.

Anyway we shall see if ol' covid sucumbs to the same fate as the Martians.... my feeling is it will... but we will always have non threatening Martians hanging around.... with a decidedly less exalted Ulllaaaa. if you know what I mean!
