Stop the Panic: The Latest Xi Variant Isn't Making People Sicker

On Friday, the stock market crashed by 900 points as politicians in cities across the globe started to panic over the latest variant of Wuhan coronavirus. 

But based on what we know so far, the latest version of the disease isn't making people sicker. South African Doctor Angelique Coetzee, who is on the team that discovered the variant, has repeatedly said symptoms are "very, very mild."

"What we are seeing clinically in South Africa, and remember that I'm at the epicenter, that's where I'm practicing, is extremely mild," Coetzee said during an interview with the BBC. "We haven't admitted anyone. I spoke to other colleagues of mine: The same picture." 

"What we have to worry about now is that when older, unvaccinated people are infected with the new variant, and if they are not vaccinated, we are going to see many people with a severe disease," she told the Telegram. 

Information from Israeli health officials also shows this to be true

Prof. Dror Mevorach, head of the coronavirus department at Hadassah University Hospital Ein Karem, said the preliminary reports on the clinical condition of people infected with the new variant are encouraging. “If it continues this way, this might be a relatively mild illness compared to the delta variant, and paradoxically, if it takes over, it will lead to lower infection rates,” and it will be easier to deal with globally.

“It’s still early to say, but not everything that looks bad is really bad. At this point it’s important to collect information, not speculations,” he added.
