Not that one in particular, but I've been getting similar Covid public service announcements via SMS.
As surely as Corona continues to spread around the world I am afraid that the economic impact as demonstrated by riots in Tunisia today will also become an increasing phenomenon. Thousands of young Tunisians have rioted demanding jobs and help. No money, no food. Things are likely to get a whole lot worse before they get better.
Stay healthy and only panic a tiny bit.
Yes I found that one really interesting to read, thought I had shared it here too, but obviously I am suffering from old timer's disease
And this is about me
while still in egypt, i was infected with covid 19, but never knew exactly when it was.
We did rapid test antibody immediately when our driver shown red eyes and fever.
The results, my wife and daughters are negative both IgM and IgG while myself had IgG positive and IgM negative then I asked for PCR test, the result is negative. Then another rapid test, lgG still positive.
That's mean I was infected at least two weeks before, No traces of virus genetic anymore, and my body has develop the long term Immunity.
I never feel anything wrong, in fact my VO2max in the last two months steadily 46-47 which is excellent for my ages, the O2 saturation was typically 97-99, no fever.
On January 9' we had another PCR test for travel and another PCR test on 19, both negative
Interesting enough, I saw a sign at Central park this afternoon saying masks like #6 aren't allowed/accapetable.
But, taken in isolation, that is potentially misleading. The Moderna vaccine seems to be just as effective against the South African variant, but the concern is that it may not last as long. It is possible that an additional (third) booster shot may be required - particularly for older people. However, even that is slightly speculative at this stage.Laboratory tests show Moderna’s Covid-19 jab still works against the variant named 501. V2, which emerged in South Africa, and B.1.1.7, which was first discovered in the UK, the company said.
But it warned that the neutralising antibody response to 501. V2 was sixfold lower than to the original variant, raising concerns that immunity to it may wane significantly, particularly in older people.
I can wait, for a double or triple booster shot, that is. Its possible that, like the flue vaccination, it will be advisable to get an annual Covid-19 booster. That's an extremely small inconvenience, as far as I am concerned.
