    Good for you! But no, Sthlm. Seems you cant really book in advance like before, what/when you get and where is a lottery. Drop-in seems like the way to go, me and a friend might try a joint adventure to do that.

    Hello Lall.

    I'm not dead. I'm not a COVID sceptic (and don't believe I was in the past, but /shrug). I'm Vaxxed and Boosted, was amongst the first in my area to be so on both counts. Haven't had COVID yet far as I know.

    I don't post here anymore because I honestly didn't feel welcome or wanted here in this community anymore. No big deal, it happens.

    I check in from time to time (more rarely now-a-days, obv.), but I don't think I have much to say anyone here would want to read anymore.

    Hope everyone is well, safe and healthy, surviving and thriving as much as you can.

    Best wishes to all.

    -Al
    I know you aren't a skeptic I was just trying to get you to post

    I'm hardly welcome either mate - the overton window of this sub trends ever more commie-ward as everyone right of Corbyn fucks off to discord.

    Glad you are well.

    Meanwhile Omicron is really kicking off - not just the numbers, every day I get new notifications of people I know who have it or who have kids who have it, etc.

    Purely anecdotally I reckon it's hit about 70% of my circle - most people I work with have had it, most of my friends have had it, my sister got it a couple of weeks ago.

    The London wave looks to be fizzling out but as I've said before the major issue now is incidental covid, where people are coming into hospital with whatever and on arrival are found to have covid. They still need to be kept separate because while Omicron is, mercifully, far less deadly, it's also much more infectious and still no joke to those with weakened immune systems, which does tend to be a fair number of people in a hospital.

    Slovenia is currently at around 100k active infections.That means 5% of the population has gotten infected in the last 2 weeks. Thankfully for now no real increase in hospitalizations.

    While not as deadly Omicron still is no joke as whole wave. From the data in Finland we lost around 300 people to the first wave, approx 700 to delta and we are now nearly up to 1000 for omicron wave. So Omicron being less lethal per case is being greatly offset by it's faster spreading. And this is with a population that had approx 80% double-vaccinated rate (mostly pfizer) when the wave hit and now we are up to ~40% triple vaccination rate.

    Been kicking off since december 27. We had a small dip but new record now. ICU numbers are down tho.

    And that's why we're all collectively holding our breath.. what does it mean, milder but more infectious? Also, afaik nobody knows for sure what the incidence of long covid is from Omicron. You do not need severe disease progression for long covid to become your companion.

    The issue is that it is indeed "milder", but milder than Delta, which is not saying a lot. It can still be serious if not vaccinated and with comorbidities.

    The second issue is that because it's more infectious then it has a larger pool to mutate in. The more a virus is transmitted, the higher the chances new and "fun" mutations start to occur. Seeing that SARS-COV2 was indeed mutating less than the flu virus in the beginning (which is again not saying much seeing we're getting flu shots every damn year exactly because that shit has ADHD within its codons) - we don't want this, not one bit. That is why distancing should still be a thing but people are going "muh freedum" yet again so personally I'm in the "fuck it, not going to bother my brain with this crap". I'm not holding my breath, I'm at the exact point in time that the guys in Don't Look Up sit around a table and muse about having had it all. I can't be bothered to argue pro vaccine, anti collective retardation and other crap. It is what it is and it's going to continue until either we adapt (it's possible) or we get wiped out in the dumbest way possible (with vaccines available and measures that could be taken to limit the spread).

    Having to cull conspiracy theories inceptions in my close friends and relatives and work in a hospital day in-day out is fucking exhausting and nobody really cares about us. If people did care they'd wear a fucking mask and would stop listening to retarded government ads saying "it's mild" or "it's all going to be fine". Because as it stands it sure as fuck isn't FINE. We don't have available beds and we're one of the bigger hospitals around here and these dumb fucks barely reached 40% vaccination rate.

    I have quite bad symptoms 1 month after catching Omicron. I can't go for a mid length walk without paying for it with an hour or more of shaking exhaustion, weakness and nausea.

    It's been worse than the actual Omicron itself...

    Today felt sick, had a mild fever of 38*C. Got tested =-> positive in <1 minute (it's a 15 minute fast test).

    FML.

    Probably fucking Omicron.

    Thank you

    I'm still smelling stuff and I just feel extremely tired so it isn't that bad and the fever is mild (38), but it isn't broken by neither Paracetamol nor Ibuprofen so far. Opened the windows and I'm down to 37.8, so that's nice. Will probs just watch some TV series and sleep it off.

    That really sucks. I wish people would take this more seriously for this reason amongst others.

    Not sure if it helps, but I knew someone with long covid from the first wave (and for the sceptics: healthy, not obese, no comorbidities). She got revalidation therapy and eventually did get back to her old self. What I heard from her was: exercise, but not as you would before. I.e.: it's not about 'building up strength' and 'challenging yourself', it's about very gentle exercise. So if you can find it, perhaps therapy like that could help you too. Hope you'll feel yourself again soon.

    Ibuprofen is not an antipyretic, comrade.

    Bonkers levels in Texas, 50k+ cases a day. Fatalities still low. Not lowest it's ever been but for 10x the case count and no change in fatalities that's a good sign.
