“The US needs a comprehensive, digital, real-time, integrated data infrastructure for public health.

These shortcomings are threatening lives and societal function.” [https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/newonline]

“Pollyanna” like reassurances by Mayor London Breed that the impact of the highly infectious omicron variant has been “minimal” are refuted by the fact that over 300 San Francisco employees are now quarantined due to COVID exposure including 167 police officers, 135 Fire Department personnel and 85 municipal transportation employees.

Kostrikis and his team detected 25 cases of infection due to this ominous COVID — 19 variant in which omicron genetic signatures are detected within the delta genome. Statistical analysis shows Deltacron incidence was higher in patients who required hospitalization.
