Let’s read the entire HCPH press release, then I’ll share my reaction:
Harris County Reports First COVID-19 Omicron Variant-Related Death
Unvaccinated man with underlying health conditions had tested positive for the Omicron variant
Houston –Harris County Public Health (HCPH) is reporting the first COVID-19 Omicron-variant associated death in the County.
The death reported this afternoon was of a man between the ages of 50-60 years old who was
unvaccinated and had been infected with COVID-19 previously. The individual was at higher risk of
severe complications from COVID-19 due to his unvaccinated status and had underlying health
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the patient’s family, and we extend our deepest sympathies,” said
Barbie Robinson, HCPH Executive Director. “This is a reminder of the severity of COVID-19 and its
variants. We urge all residents who qualify to get vaccinated and get their booster shot if they have not
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have reported that the Omicron variant is
widespread. There is still a lot of unknown information about the Omicron variant, though this case has
been confirmed through additional testing that may not reflect the total number of cases in our
Variants are mutations or changes to the genes of the original virus and there are currently several
notable COVID-19 variants in the U.S. The Omicron variant was first identified in South Africa in
November 2021 and currently is a concern for public health.
HCPH recommends all individuals five years and older get vaccinated as soon as possible. To be
protected against all current COVID-19 variants, including Omicron, individuals must be fully
vaccinated and get a booster shot when they are eligible. Being vaccinated provides the best protection
from developing complications or death resulting from COVID-19.

First off, HCPH states the man was unvaccinated but did he receive any doses of the COVID-19 jab? The CDC still considers you unvaccinated if you’ve only had one dose for the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 jabs. The agency says you’re not fully vaccinated until two weeks past your second dose.
What about HCPH’s definition of vaccinated and unvaccinated? Does HCPH consider you unvaccinated if you haven’t received a booster? Even though HCPH says the deceased individual is unvaccinated, we don’t know if he received any COVID-19 injections.
Next, how severe were the man’s underlying conditions, and how did his co-morbidities factor into his death? Was this another case of dying with and not of COVID-19?
Lastly, how does the HCPH know that this man had the omicron variant? Is there a PCR test that specifically identifies omicron? I thought COVID tests weren’t able to differentiate between SARS-CoV2 and influenza. All of a sudden, tests can pick out a specific variant?
This press release tells us nothing!
HCPH’s report about the first omicron-variant COVID-19 death is a fearmongering propaganda campaign. It reads more like a Big Pharma-funded vaccine advertisement. The ambiguous press release tells us nothing about the real cause of death.
I hope Americans don’t fall for the same ole’ trick.
