This has to be one of the strangest disease ever. It seems as though there is no rhyme or reason for getting a common symptom, a rare symptom, or you might not get any symptoms at all.

Seasonality?? Cases on the rise again across the US and Northern hemisphere European countries

Everything else has been nonexistent. Contact tracing. Quarantining while positive. Nobody does that anymore. Not to mention distancing and masks. Everything is worse except for the vaccine. It’s failing. At least in the hot and cold when we are forced in doors we should take every precaution

To me, it simply reflects COVID-19 more than ever before is still reputed to be a mild and brief illness for most people in good health. When I go out to shows, bars and stores only a very few people wear masks. While many are, I doubt enough older people are taking the virus seriously enough.

The covid vaccine requirement for workers should be overturned. If I'm right, Stillwater Hospital still requires everybody entering to have a mask on and get temp taken. That should be enough precautions to take.

That is sure no way to treat a R.N. with 25 years on the job. Does the hospital require workers to get a flu shot every year?

It's just as much about healthcare workers not spreading it, if not more. It's why this mandate is completely separate from the other one. You really want an unvaccinated nurse working on a cancer floor or ICU? Vaccine mandates are insanely common for healthcare workers and it's for this reason. I'm not a fan of the OSHA mandate, but this is different. They are working with and around extremely vulnerable people.

I still think that blood type still has something to do with it. It's just too coincidental that all the O types I know or have met, have only had mild cases or no symptoms at all even when being exposed to someone really sick.

Stillwater Hospital was said to have lost 40 nurses burnt out from last winter's onslaught of covid patients. Why support circumstances that lead to a further shortage of nurses? Do masks that medical workers have to wear work or not?

You realize some of those healthcare workers who quit from burnout were burnt out because their patients, patients' families, and apparently a good chunk of their colleagues, wouldn't take the simple step of getting vaccinated to reduce serious consequences and reduce spread? From a lot of their perspectives, it's nonstop death and horror, which makes it even more frustrating when people won't do the little things, like getting vaccinated.

@steross may have taken a break from this thread, but I believe he's said similar things and can correct me if I've said anything wrong, since this is exactly what he does.

And now enter the new African variant which could be vaccine resistant.
Nu and omicron, but I saw a vaccine researcher say that since Delta has dropped to near nothing in South Africa, and since they are only 24% vaccinated, that it was too soon to determine how virulent or severe Nu is and how much affect the vaccines will have on it. Omicron is newer so even less info he said.
