Do we have any infectious disease experts on the board? 

I think we are headed into a recession, probably mild one. International commerce is significantly affected by this. 

Following up again. The answer remains the same. It’s going to suck.  If I told you in Feb 2020 that Covid would be responsible for 777,000 deaths with 48 million cases in the United States would you have believed me?

Nope.  Now in late March, early April....

No. 

We will probably get above 1 million before the end of winter. 

Who knows what Omicron is going to do . 

I am going to  go live in a cave in the central Idaho mountains now. This sucks

These are the sort of "experts" over at the FDA? I'm glad they quit. Give me a break with this talking point:

Quote

First, such a campaign diverts focus away from the goal of persuading the unvaccinated to get their shots (and persuading parents to get their eligible children shots).

Boosters are not the reason unvaccinated people aren't getting the vaccine. The vaccines have been out forever now. It's not like there's a domestic shortage either.

Question for the Doctors or PA's that frequent this thread: 

I am due for a booster , should I wait to see what the deal is with Omicron variant or just do it? 

 

Not a doctor or PA or nurse, but a biotech investor and all around observer of social data.  Do it unless you also have convalescent immunity from the past few months..  That 3rd dose pushes your antibody titers multiples higher than early on after the 2nd dose.   I know it's early, but there's no evidence that protection from serious disease will not still be present (from Omiron) plus Delta is still around theses parts for awhile.

Lol.  The vague "they".  It's the first cue someone doesn't know shit.

Maybe Bob knows the identity of the true Covid mastermind, who just happens to prefer to be identified with gender-neutral pronouns. Did you even consider that, you monsters?!

Bruh. That's exactly what I was saying. :shrug:
