Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that a new round of lockdowns are possible to be implemented to fight the Omicron variant (sub-variant).
However, Fauci confessed that its mortality rate is even lower than the original strain.

The subvariant BA.2 has caused a tremendous growth in cases across Europe, but just like the original Omicron variant, it hasn’t led to some significant rise in hospitalizations and deaths.
“If, in fact, we do see a turnaround and a resurgence, we have to be able to pivot and go back to any degree of mitigation that is commensurate with what the situation is,” Fauci said.
“We can’t just say, ‘We’re done. We’re going to move on.’ We’ve got to be able to be flexible because we’re dealing with a dynamic situation.’”
He also reserved the option to impose restrictions, even though the BA.2 mortality rate is much lower than the original Omicron strain.
“We can’t just say we’re done, now we’re going to move on. We’ve got to be able to be flexible because we’re dealing with a dynamic situation.”

“The overall mortality is actually down,” said Fauci. “It’s a very interesting situation where the cases are going up, but it does not, at this point in time, appear to be any degree of severity.”
The Omicron variant was seized upon by technocrats to postpone the easing of pandemic restrictions and to layer more on top.
