Newsmax Gets Doctor To Tell Viewers Not To Worry About New Variant

( As the Democrats freak out about the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, scientists and doctors are coming out and revealing the true science behind this new strain – and it’s good news.

Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, recently appeared on Newsmax and explained how there is “absolutely no reason to panic” about the new variant. It wasn’t just talk, either – Dr. Jha cited data that shows how the latest strain may be more infectious but is actually significantly less deadly and a much more mild strain.

Speaking to Eric Bolling last Thursday, Dr. Jha said, “taking a deep breath is good.”

Jha did warn, however, that he remains worried for the next four to six weeks, suggesting that the virus could still infect up to one-third of all Americans – which is around 100 million people. While most people are likely to weather the new variant perfectly fine, the fact that it is so infectious and will infect so many people means that a substantial number of people will sadly either succumb to the virus or face very serious symptoms.

The doctor also echoed former President Donald Trump’s words about the vaccine, explaining that those who have taken the shot or had the booster, or have recently recovered from COVID, will likely have a “relatively mild disease.” His main concern, he said, are Americans with co-morbidities and in the “high-risk” category.

He also spread some positive news about the remainder of the festive season. When asked whether it was safe for families to gather over Christmas and the new year, he said that he is having a family gathering and said there’s no reason others can’t do the same.
