    Did Omicron arrive in China’s capital Beijing by mail from Canada?

    City’s first case of the Covid-19 variant received a letter from Toronto which had traces of the virus, health authorities say

    The single Omicron case detected in Beijing was traced back to an international document from Canada, and it was found to have similar strains from those in North America and Singapore. The Omicron variant was detected on the outer package, internal surface and papers of the mail, Beijing health authorities revealed on Monday.

    The patient who was found with Omicron on Saturday had received an international mail on January 11 which was sent from Canada on January 7, transferred via the US and China's Hong Kong region to Beijing.

    A previous article mentioned that the virus loses 90% infectiousness if airborne

    So if the virus survived the trip from Canada to China... someone in China decided NOT to disinfect the package and hold his face without washing his/her hands :whistle:

    I can't blame the person as China has been back to normal for the longest time

    I wonder how many people are "in the household"

    Indians have stronger family ties than us. Even in Singapore, first thing an Indian will do once he settles down is bring his wife and children, then his parents and siblings :ROFLMAO:
    (I stopped at wife and child)

    ***
    I guess IT people earns more compared to nurses :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    I finally got my Pfizer booster shot today. I fell in line for 6 hours and I was about to go home but settle to wait in the long queue.

    Already registered my 6-year old for Covid vaccination as Makati City already opened the registration a few days ago. Though based on other parents' accounts, San Juan started their registration back in Dec 2021 pa. I just hope my son won't make such a big fuss during the vaccination schedule as he is used to drive through vaccination since the pandemic started.
