This article contains dangerous, ridiculous misinformation about virus genetics (no, Omicron is NOT a recombination event with a rhinovirus! No, it won't recombine with viruses from other wildly different families).

This is false information about COVID-19 and the article should be taken down IMMEDIATELY.
