Maybe one of the reeelapse MD’s can weigh in on this.
This is the first I'm hearing of this.
I can't say as though I'm surprised.

Very safe.

Past 24 hours I’ve learned at least a dozen people within the friends/family circle testing positive, almost all are fully vaxed. I’m quite ready for the world to be oven’d.

A Florida sized 14 billion ton glacier is supposed to break off and float into the ocean in the next 5-10 years anyways so there will be that to worry about instead.

There was some article about if you are unlucky enough to get a break through case after vaccines and boosters you would basically have a “super immunity” at that point but really seems like a war of attrition, even if it’s much less lethal it’s far more contagious so more sick people will mean more deaths. It’s almost as contagious as measles now.

Wastewater capture viral counts here are double what they were at the end of 2020. It took me several passes to explain to people at our company that lower morbidity rates can result in similar or even higher morbidity figures if the delta in spread is greater than the delta in disease severity. That was something of an "oh shit" realization. Even I got lulled by the whole "it's not as severe" canard, which just means the salami slicer is just cutting thinner.

Testing negative right now but I feel like someone threw me out a window (aches, headache, 99.9f). I am so careful even some of the other RNs make fun of me for it. I’m supposed to train 3 RNs today so that sucks that they can’t start work until I’m well because no one else can do my job. I would do the iPad on a stick thing out of desperation but there isn’t anyone who could set it up for me :(

Feel better and take care of yourself, my dude

My wife's been laid up for going on three days now with similar symptoms: fever, body aches, headache, fatigue. We thought she was improving yesterday but last night the aches came back with a vengeance. Shit sucks—and the soonest we can get tested is next Friday about 50 miles from here. Cool!

Are there employers who require a positive test in order to grant sick levee? Or, like COVID leave?
If not, just assume you have it at this point.

I had the crud for a week, and then got a bad cough/fever. Oxygen once dipped to 95%, but had been staying steady st 98%.
ER sent me home with prednazone. 2 Negative tests.
A week later, cough is almost gone, but lung capacity is still only about 66% of normal...fucking sucks.

all four of us got negative, some multiple times on the rapid antigen tests that the school district gave out but my wife was sick as a dog and got positive on the real test from the doctors office. cool that kids are using these to decide if they can go to school or not!

We've been at a weird level of Covid positivism for a while now, where if the mechanisms of power decide that the pandemic response is or should be over, then it's necessarily true that the pandemic itself must be wrapping up. Of course, that's insane bullshit.

I think a not-insubstantial portion of pandemic response fatigue comes from data presentation, particularly when it comes to reporting deaths. The trend is to map deaths on a daily/7-day average, as is done with cases. That's not particularly useful information, though: case positivity with a sub-100% case fatality rate is necessarily a potentially transient state—you either recover or you don't—while death is a textbook example of permanence. Reporting a death rate belies that even in the slide from peak to trough, there's still not-insubstantial amounts of death.

tl;dr death figures should always be presented cumulatively, almost never as a daily or lagging-average—and that should be the central figure on the dashboard of the American How Fucked Are We Meter (answer: pretty fucked!)

Why are right wingers screaming about getting kids back into school when for decades they screamed about getting kids out of public schools because they are commie illuminati indoctrination centers?

If the only reason to keep kids in public schools is because it's the only form of affordable childcare that would be even more of an argument why we should be paying people NOT to work during a pandemic but I'm just a PC fag who hates the free market.
