The omicron variant of COVID-19 has been detected in water samples from nearly every wastewater treatment plant in Houston, highlighting its quick spread.

All but four of Harris County’s 39 wastewater treatment plants reported samples that tested positive for the omicron variant in the latest data from Dec. 13, up from only seven at the end of November. The largest plant servicing the Texas city saw its viral load increase by 164% in the two weeks between data sets.

The article goes on to state the following:

Following the rise in infections, a Houston man was the first to die from the omicron variant, and Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo moved the area’s threat level to level two.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines, “Approximately 40% of persons infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, shed virus RNA in their stool, therefore, community-level trends in SARS-CoV-2 infections, both symptomatic and asymptomatic, can be tracked through wastewater testing.”

Hidalgo tweeted Monday, “NEW: I’m raising our COVID19 Threat Level to Level 2: Orange, because of rapid increases in cases & positivity rate. Due to explosive growth of Omicron, everyone eligible should get their booster, mask & get tested before gatherings. Unvaccinated ppl should minimize all contacts.”

  1. how about rethinking the waste water treatment 🤔. maybe more hypochlorite in the waste and checking water samples more often OR is this a purposeful move to keep it circulating

  2. These people will stop at nothing to scare you over a flu virus. How did it get in the water? None has been detected with it but perhaps one or 2 people.
    Maybe all coming from the border?
    That is why it’s a treatment plant.

  3. We’re probably all infected like the characters are from TWD. I put nothing past the evil government. They care more about instilling fear, power and control and of course all of the money they can get( or take).

  4. How much delta varient shows up and how do they detect the difference? This is a democrat led city. Dont believe everything they say. Just like the seven or so democratic politicians that ginr the exact same statement about having mild cases because they have been vacinated.

  5. Houston does have a large HIV positive community. But despite that, considering Omicron is so wide spread now, did he die with COVID? Or die from COVID. Plus i don’t trust anything coming from the mouth of Lina Hidalgo. She is a Colombian snake!

  6. An idea for all restaurants, bars, gyms or any place of business or worship in any and all demorat run cities….just close for good and move to republican (not rino) run city

  7. Again, what difference does it make. The people that have the vaccines are the ones catching it and spreading it. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing what a clustercab

  8. First off they have stated many times that they can’t test for separate variants. But suddenly they tested for omicron. I worked in a wastewater plant and where exactly did they get their tests from because normally you take samples after you have added all of the chemicals to clean the water just to keep the operators from catching anything so im not buying this shit . Se coldly since when does a judge decide anything except in his or her court.

  9. All these tests cant tell difference between cold. Flu or cov ! They Are ALL CORONA Viruses.

    Has anyone ever thought how they can up with a test for Omacron so fast ? Makes you think . All scare tactics .

    Very simple vit C .D-3. Zinc . If you feel sick I still use the Flu Meds !

  10. Funny every time things calm down just a little that another variant just amazingly pops up just in time to stir the scare pot a little more. Is the government using airplanes to spread this stuff or what?? Don’t believe what you hear on news. Biden told the nation that NYC hospitals are overwhelmed already. A Dr that works there was on a program saying he doesn’t know what Biden is talking about, Biden is flat out lying. Still. Don’t believe a word he says

  11. I’m just going to say I know an RN who took one of the swabs and ran it under water and it came up positive and this was months ago. I think all water supply has corona viruses in it or the tests are seriously flawed.

  12. So what are they saying? Are they spreading the virus through the water? Wow, wouldn’t that be something…like a Sci-fi movie. Don’t drink the water.

  13. Well with the unknown how it started fire of the refinery in Bay Town and this in Houston What’s next ? Texas is going to be the Target of this evil communist regime Because we are trying to save our innocent Texans . Check and see what Democrat it Fauci was in the area.
    Fauci helped make the covid virus. All viruses are man made and put into the public to accomplish the death of humans
    And he is in control and he created the new virus . And you people do what your murderer says
