This came to me in a group text. This person is an athletic male about 58 years old, an avid cyclist in seemingly good health. I know him but not well. I would describe him as a friend of my friends. In a subsequent text he said that he did not get a booster shot adding a sad face smiley: :-(. I inferred from that that he is otherwise vaccinated.


By the way I've been really sick for the last five days and yesterday my Covid test results came back positive. It's intense how deeply it works its way into your lungs. I just carried a couple duffel bags today and I was keeled over gasping for air. I went to the emergency room but they said the doctor does not prescribe anything. There's nothing they can do. I have a call with my primary primary care physician in Ashland tomorrow. Vail is a zoo with people from all over the world here these two holiday weeks. Hope you all are healthy and had a nice Christmas. Happy new year.🎄

    I've read that the go-to treatment for COVID-19, monoclonal antibodies, has no effect on Omicron. I'm sure that's why the doc said they have no treatment and sent your friend's friend home.

    I got my booster in late September, but I've read that the protection it gives wears off considerably after 10 weeks.

    OTOH I've read the Omicron is usually mild, like a cold.

    Anyhow, this is sn issue for me because I'll be servicing 3 Whole Foods on Thursday. I guess I'll just be as careful as I can.

    I suspect that Sheri and I caught Omicron sometime over the past week. Sheri complained of sinus/throat discomfort a few days ago, and then a couple of days ago I started feeling it. We're both better now.

    I'm reading more and more reports that for most people, Omicron feels like a mild cold or causes no symptoms at all. I just read in the Long Beach Post last night that 46 LB City Fire Department employees have contracted Omicron, but none of them had to be admitted to the hospital and all of them are either asymptomatic or have what feels like a mild cold.

    As Covid evolves it will be more transmissible but less lethal. At some point humans and covid-19 will be able to coexist. It would be an evolutionary dead end for Covid if it killed off all its hosts.
