I hope you and the family get well soon, bud.

Ya get well, the strange thing is as bad as we felt our appetite never waned at all. Not normal for flu like symptoms.

In the days since WHCD weekend, reporters and staffers from CNN, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Politico, and other participating news orgs have tested positive for Covid. More in the @ReliableSources newsletter. https://t.co/Fg9FPbasc0— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) May 4, 2022

I don't like posting things like this but the response to Covid this year seems to be "Let's hide under a pile of coats and hope it goes away".

herman:
I don't think there is even hiding, unless we're talking about hiding the research results.

No big orgs in the public sphere really willing to recognize the scope of the damage COVID does to a body, even without initial symptoms, and subsequently a healthcare infrastructure. Long COVID is lifechanging stuff, and not for the better. Most countries still seem to be in hand sanitizer and plexiglass mode.


Assessing COVID Risk – Part 1 – Getting Infected

Since we are in the "assess your own risk" phase of this pandemic, it would be helpful if public health officials would give a master class on assessing risk. Looks like academics and engineers need to do it instead.
