Important thread from @Craig_A_Spencer on the impact of the #omicron surge on ERs in NYC. And NYC is not alone. Emergency departments are stretched thin across the country. Google search for "emergency room near me" is at a five year all time high. https://t.co/p1CJjGCWF5

BREAKING In response to the #Omicron variant, US is restricting travel from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi. Not sure if i believe that this will do anything to slow spread. And likely undermines incredible data sharing effort
