    Default How may of you know someone with Covid at the moment?

    How may of you know someone with Covid at the moment? I'm just getting over it as is my wife. A friend came to visit and brought it from Southern California. Super contagious.

    My next door neighbor, as of about five days ago. Probably his wife. They are also in their mid-sixties, and fully shot.

    I should add that everyone in my family had mild cases, even my elderly mother in law. In other words, the vaccines and boosters worked

    Quite a few. Five currently, about a dozen in the past few weeks. I was with my son on Friday, Sat and Sun. He tested positive Wednesday. I’m still negative, though, so maybe he got it from his roommate Sunday night. She came up positive on Tuesday.

    SWMBO knows far more with Covid than I do - at the school where she works, between COVID, the flu, strep, and some seasonal bug going around, they have had absentee rates of 50%.

    Every now and then someone at my office suspect they have Covid. I currently don't know anyone that I know has Covid. A lingering effect of the pandemic is that we still can work well from home. If we've a cold, suspected Covid or whatever, we usually continue to work from home as long as we can think coherently. Testing for Covid is only done if you're admitted to hospital and in nursery homes so we rarely know if what we had was Covid. A side effect of our quite effective social distancing for two years is that we've become unused to the common cold viruses around us. Many of us get the worst cold we've had for a long time, proper man colds.

    Brother in law and his wife are down with it, she's ok, mildly "off" but he's really sick, she had the full three shot process, he had just the first one.
    He says, "get all the shots, dont miss any, you dont want this".
    Ironic as my wife runs a vaccination clinic.

    I've had all three, and went and got my winter flu shot a couple of days ago.

    Right now about 6. In the last month or so, probably 12 more. I have a friend right now who went to Italy on holiday, he and his wife tested positive. He is sick, she less so. Had to scramble to find a hotel that would let them quarantine there. Can't leave until tests not positive, government is involved. Sent a picture today from out the hotel window, over looking Lake Como. Can't test again for 8 days.

    Seems anecdotally to be greatlyon the rise. I had 3 shots and had 2 bad days with fever, chills, cough, headache, body aches, now almost a week later feel much improved just coughing some and some sinus issues. I would not want to have had it unvaxxed. Thank you scientists and medical people!

    Until February this year, nobody. Then two nephews started their first year at uni, both had it within weeks. Since then, omicron has been a revolving door at work etc, with at least one person a week known to me catching it. My boss has it right now, our son just got over it last week.
    Total reported cases in NZ is just over a million, the learned epidemiologists think the actual number is between two and four million. Haven't had it myself yet as far as I know, but guess it's just a matter of time.

    Four co-workers. One now out of it after ten days or so and three more just came down with it. Mild ( flu-like) cases, all.
    Two had had it twice, now.

    We travel for our jobs.

    Friends - 1. Acquaintances - 2 more. People in my wider orbit - maybe 7-8 more.

    My sweetie knows a lot more, as she is a chaplain in a major hospital.

    Overall, cases in Oregon are on the rise. Chaplain sweetie says COVID patients are swelling rapidly there.

    The only one I know who recently tested positive for Covid is my surgeon who is going to remove my gall bladder. He had to cancel the first scheduled operation due to it. Personally, I think it's pretty scary when a doctor gets it. He works in a facility that allows no one to enter unmasked and he wears an N95 always at work. If he can get Covid then anyone can.

    Jeff, does your gall bladder surgeon live in the hospital, or has he been out and about?

    It’s interesting the reporting that colds and flu are now active again with increased severity, when, during the height of the early lockdown season people were reporting a surprising lessening of the usual winter contagious diseases.

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    It's odd that we didn't know anyone who had it for the first almost two years of the pandemic and then, bam, a bunch of people in the family got it

    Several - but then, I would, right?

    FYI, for our 'denialist' friends - for those folks vaxxed and boosted, they may not even know they're infected - but are still contagious. And those with sx's often only have 'a really nasty head cold'. If you/your friends aren't testing - 'cuz 'it's not real/overblown/whatever' - you/yours will be clueless.

    Bobcat - the latest variant (Omicron, several sub-types) are much more contagious than the original versions.

    I know one person, I know them very well. Me! I just got back to work today after a 5 day mandatory quarantine period. I am vaccinated and boosted, so all I got was a low grade fever, a slight cough, and a sense of malaise. At least NJ covered my pay for those 5 days.

    That's kind what I figured.

    It's odd, but I was exposed to some people around Xmas, no reason to think they're were contagious and no reason to think they were not. My wife a week or so later felt tired and dizzy. At the time, you could not get a home test and going to doctor to get a test seemed to a good way to get Covid. So we wonder if we had it and didn't know it
