4. COVID: Vaccines should work against Omicron variant, WHO says
This is big. Much of the panic we saw recently was that Omicron may render vaccines useless. Not the case, apparently. The travel ban should be lifted and NY's governor should allow for elective surgeries again. https://t.co/Fy1IbFh2qk— Joe Concha (@JoeConchaTV) December 8, 2021
Existing vaccines should still protect people who contract the Omicron variant from severe COVID cases, a World Health Organization (WHO) official says. It comes as the first lab tests of the new variant in South Africa suggest it can partially evade the Pfizer jab. Researchers say there was a “very large drop” in how well the vaccine’s antibodies neutralized the new strain.
But the WHO’s Dr. Mike Ryan said there was no sign Omicron would be better at evading vaccines than other variants. He said initial data suggested Omicron did not make people sicker than the Delta and other strains. “If anything, the direction is towards less severity,” he said.
5. Pele: Football legend back in hospital for treatment on colon tumor

Brazil legend Pele is in hospital for treatment for a colon tumor. The three-time World Cup winner had surgery to remove a colon tumor in September, with the hospital saying at the time that he would also need to have chemotherapy. Sao Paulo’s Hospital said the 81-year-old was in stable condition and would be discharged in the next few days.
The hospital also said Pele was now “continuing” his treatment. Pele said on Twitter last month that he was “fine” and “feeling better every day” following his release from hospital in September. He had been having treatment at the hospital since August 31 after the tumor was detected in routine tests.
