Dow scores biggest point gain in over a year as early indications suggest Omicron is less severe than Delta

The dow soared to it’s biggest point gain in over a year Monday as Omicron fears took a break.

Appearing on CNN, Fauci acknowledged on the Omicron variant “Thus far, it does not look like there’s a great degree of severity to it.

“But we have really got to be careful before we make any determinations that it is less severe or it really doesn’t cause any severe illness, comparable to delta,” he added.

Dr. Angelique Coetzee said “The mildness of the symptoms that we are seeing apparently there’s no reason for panicking as we don’t see severely ill patients.”
