Lenovo follows Amazon, Meta, Twitter and shows a T-Mobile agent on the way back to the trade show. All four said they would not attend privately due to concerns about a new type of COVID-19 omicron. And while all of them are technically important names, they are not as hardware-conscious as Lenovo is, nor have they had as much display as they did years ago.
In the meantime, the Consumer Technology Association, an organization that co-ordinates CES each year, is still planning to move forward with the event. “Based on CES ‘health strategies – the need for vaccination, face-to-face and access to the COVID-19 test – combined with population reduction and population reduction strategies, we are confident that attendees and exhibitors can have a long-term but important and useful event in Las Vegas, as well as valuable information on our digital discovery, “the agency said .
There is much that scientists do not know about the omicron, but early sources suggest that it is a highly contagious coronavirus. Federal health officials said Monday the changes were calculated of all new cases nationwide last week on December 18. It accounted for 12.6 percent of all COVID-19 cases in the US seven days earlier. In some parts of the country, including the New York and Pacific Northwest regions, the share of these species was very large. Scientists have also discovered many non-mRNA vaccines, including Sinovac and Sinophram, do not provide minimal protection against those side effects. It is understandable that many companies want to play safely, and it is safe to say that Lenovo will probably not be the last to be released in CES 2022.
