According to Dallas County health officials, the emergence of the less-lethal but more-contagious subvariants of the original Omicron iteration has caused disruptions in businesses, schools, and healthcare settings.
As reported in The Dallas Express, the CDC is preparing to overhaul its protocols after inefficiencies in its aggregation of COVID-19 data and public messaging elicited criticism.
