I'm so worried about Omicron!

@Kestra15 very nicely summarised how things will likely develop. For a virus the best thing is to become less dangerous but more easily spreadable as it is "in its best interest" not to debilitate or kill its host. The most problematic viruses are those that are the least adapted to humans, and when SARS-CoV-2 made the jump from some wild animal in China to the first humans, the human immune system had no idea what to do with it, so it could be easily overwhelmed, thus leading to very severe cases and death.

 

The more humans got infected (the current official count is around 317 million cases), the more variants of the virus could pop up, each of them better at spreading and less aggressive as this helps it to spread even further. The more severe an illness gets, the more likely people are strictly isolated, which is a cul-de-sac for the virus as it is more likely to die out that way. So it is an evolutionary advantage for it to become less severe as then people are more likely to run around with it and pass it on, which is the only "raison d'être" of a virus.

 

As for how pandemics can turn out, you only need to look at the "Spanish" flu, which after about two years suddenly disappeared, too. It started out very deadly, but in time the human body geared up its immune system and the pandemic fizzled away.  Nowadays there are more options to help people like the vaccine(s) and various meds that get developed. Plus the intensive care has developed quite a bit

My little sister got symptoms on Monday and tested positive at home. I heard that she's already better, fortunately, after being sick for just one day. She lives with my mom who's over 60 so I'm still quite worried about them both!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that all of you will be protected as well as you can by the vaccine!

I became a part of the statistics where I live--thank hell I'm already recovered now. Just waiting six more days in isolation...

I'll keep my fingers crossed that this was the last you saw of this drat virus for a long time!

I think the other half of my concern is what could come after one successfully beats a bout of covid. There's still so much unknown, and then there's the info about micro clots, people getting diagnosed with diabetes after, long-covid, lung scarring, neuro issues, liver or kidney problems, and so many other scary things. It's really interesting, yet it's terrifying.


Also, since covid is viral, will it/can it stay in our systems, and pop out later, like how chicken pox can lead to having shingles?

This is in fact a problem, but unfortunately we will only know about this in a few years. The problem with such "sleeper viruses" is that there is no evolutionary pressure for them to lose such long-term features as by that time they already completed their mission while the person was infectious during the beginning of the illness.

 

We can just hope that science will come up with anti-viral meds that can prime the immune system to purge the body of such hidden viruses, too.

So I had a bit of a meltdown today, a mixture of my normal 'social anxiety' issues and all this covid stuff.... For awhile now I've been grocery shopping with my case manager, I can't do it alone but doing it with her is the best way to get what we need while not unnecessarily exposing mom to all these people. But today my mom and I went grocery shopping... I understand the whole feeling of 'it's been so long, something has to give, we can't just stay inside forever' and such, I do understand those feelings, but my goodness it's so freaking stressful. Mom and I both wore masks of course, and we've both had our vaccines and booster, but it is so *stressful* to walk around a store and see just how many people aren't wearing masks (or are 'wearing' them totally wrong, like barely covering their mouth and not their nose at all....). And 'social distancing' is pretty much gone at this point, most people have no problem crowding into aisles and squeezing past you and such. 

 

I just worry so much about the risk of my mom getting covid. Her health is so fragile as it is and it's just so much worse for her when she gets any sort of flu/etc, I can't imagine if she got this. (And yeah it's kinda a crap thing to realize but I've definitely realized that all my worry and precautions and such are because of my mom, I don't really feel a huge need to keep myself safe for me, I do it for her.)

 

A tad over 800 cases reported in Yuma County in the past two days (325 yesterday). It's just getting worse and worse, to the point where I'm now getting calls from my doctor and case manager to make sure I know it's gotten worse and I need to be careful.

When I left work this afternoon, there were at least four other staff members in the main shelter building and not a mask in sight (in a country where it's mandated by law that we're masked, and a business that tries to enforce it but the supervisor had left for his half day). Sigh.

I also want to send hugs and positive thoughts to everyone in need. Thanks for crossing your fingers for me and my family! My sister recovered quickly, apparently she suffered more from her quarantine than the virus. My mom is still sick and I can't help being so worried about her even though she said that it hasn't been worse than a "moderate flu" and that she's feeling better already. But still, how can I know really. 😿 She caught the virus only right after getting her third dose of the vaccine, I hope it would still help a bit and make her recover faster. And my sister of course had to cancel her third vaccination now that she got sick before it.

@Varislapsi I hope your mother is okay! Both my parents and I are vaxxed and boosted but I would still worry about them if they caught it. Fortunately people around me are still really good about masking and distancing.

 

@HeatherMarie have you seen the pictures coming out of Trump's rally over the weekend? I dare you to spot anyone with masks. I hear it had over 10,000 attendees. I don't know how many came from out of state, but I have the feeling Arizona's going to see a big rise in cases from that event.

Well....I haven't been on the forum for a while. I managed to get my first vaccine on March 15, 2021 and my second on April 15, 2021. My Dad got his in February and a week after my first one in March. With my anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD and agoraphobia I pretty much have done the standard deal of only leaving the property one day a week to get medications, grocery shopping done and pick up my son for the weekend. So far so good. Did fine with the vaccines that were Moderna. No major side effects which was a miracle because I am usually the one who is allergic to damn near everything. Got my son vaccinated when they opened it up for the kids to do that and he got both doses. Well......I picked him up on Thursday, January 13th and he was fine. Two days later on Saturday, he starts showing mild cold symptoms. I had him until Monday evening and the cough had gotten worse and his appetite was down. Which, Kian and food....he is not one to say no. So, his Dad gets here and I tell him he's had this cold and it sounds worse at night and so on and they needed to get him to the doctor to be checked out. That night I started getting sick and by the time I woke up on Tuesday I was down with a fever, sore throat, nausea and cough and body aches so bad it felt like my bones were breaking. I text his Dad, Stepmom and Aunt that all live in the same house and told them they needed to get Kian into a doctor. His Dad fires back this BS text with just a bunch of medical talk and stuff on Wednesday and I was just thinking..."whatever, I don't need the science lesson." (He's got a Bachelor's in Social Work and says he has a Master's in it but he washed out of Social Work and got the Master's in Business....he thinks he knows everything even above the doctors and his sister that I text has an LPN license.) They DIDN'T take Kian to the doctor!!!! He is a special needs child with bad lungs and they didn't take him in. To say that I am angry would be an understatement considering every time his Dad gets a tummyache he's in the ER or something for it, but he can't take his own son to the doctor. Well, Thursday I had already gone through two fevers and was spiking the third and wasn't getting any better so I went into the ER and they violated my nose (Covid test) and did a chest x-ray and said everything looked good my oxygen levels were okay and I was wheezing a little but not bad. The doctor did a 40mg dose of prednisone there and another 4 days worth to the pharmacy. So, I was sent home at about 2:30am on Friday morning from the ER and felt better within about 6 to 8 hours from the prednisone. The doctor had said if I am positive for Covid they will call me and if I don't have it I won't hear anything. About 4:30pm rolls around and I am thinking "whew....in the clear.....just my usual once a year bronchitis type infection." And the phone rings...."You tested positive for Covid." I let my ex, his wife and sister know and his sister did a test on Kian at home that was inconclusive and they didn't make it to test him Saturday (they sleep all freaking day). So they were supposed to take Kian in today because I get a text from his Dad yesterday and he's bellyaching to me about being so sick and he's taking Kian in. I am FURIOUS!!!! ALL of this could have been avoided had they listened to me and taken Kian in to the doctor when I told them. The only reason his Dad is taking him in now is because he got sick too. I actually still have a nasty cough which I control by staying down and keeping pretty quiet. Sometimes the phlegm I cough up has blood in it from coughing so hard and trying to dislodge it. I do get winded pretty easily but I am an asthmatic. I also tire out pretty easy but I don't feel nearly as bad as I did. Now I am just worried about my son and how he is doing because I won't be able to see him this weekend either. My Dad is so far doing fine but I have been masking up when I go out of my room into the kitchen and he stays in his part of the house. So, hopefully Dad won't get sick. My Dad is beyond furious at my ex and so is my Mom. I was supposed to get my booster today but the ER doctor said it would be best to wait until I was well so I get the most benefit from it. It was a rough summer with a couple losses of family. I know I had mentioned we have a family member that had worked on the Moderna vaccine and had worked in the infectious and deadly disease field for several decades. He passed away unexpectedly due to a heart attack on June 24th. With that....sending all of you Love, Light & Healing and the strength to keep on moving through this insanity. ❤️ Sorry for the personal drama.

* hugs * Nothing wrong with sharing. It sucks you and he have had to go through all that. Hope you both feel better soon.

 

Case numbers here have dropped slightly but only because testing numbers have been lower. Positivity rate is still 25 - 28%. Hospitilizations are still high, mostly from the vast numbers of the unvaccinated.

In Germany, the Covid-19 numbers are going through the ceiling. By now the map is not red anymore, but mostly purple and even black:

I hope you're ok !

 

I've also managed to avoid it, but my partner with whom I live is positive to Omicron and was very sick, so we stayed at home (and worked from home) last week, and I didn't try to protect myself since I thought I was going to get it anyways and I didn't want them to like, wear masks inside or things like that in that state. They're doing way better now, still tested positive yesterday, but the thing is: I've been tested negative up until now, I'm waiting for another result today, but I have no symptoms and I'm a bit confused. I don't know what's happening, but in any case I'm very glad to be vaccinated !

@calona

The vaccination can help you not to get infected. After all, it helps the immune system to produce a good number of T-cells and antibodies that are supposed to kill off the virus or at least keep it in check.

Or you might even be a person who is "genetically immune" (such people are currently searched for by researchers, by the way: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-02978-6)

Or you were just lucky ^^

I hope you will stay healthy and your partner will fully recover ASAP, too!

 

By the way, here is another article on "discordant couples" where one partner might have a genetic immunity to Covid-19: https://www.statnews.com/2021/08/23/lucky-few-seem-resistant-to-covid19-scientists-want-to-know-why-2/

 

Yuck - we now have a 7-day incidence over 1000 here. At least the number of people in ICUs stays pretty much the same, even though the number of hospitalised patients rises slowly, too.

So... I know this is double posting but I'm a bit... Lost? My friend and I tested positive yesterday, but we've received 0 info about how long to isolate and everything. Her dad was tested and told to come out of isolation on the 31st but he received his test results a couple of days before us (on the 21st) I believe. I'm a bit lost on how to proceed. How long am I to isolate? Do I need to take another test? I just don't know.

The quarantine rules vary a bit from country to country. In Germany, you are expected to isolate yourself for 7 or 10 days when you were tested positive. 7 days if you have no symptoms and get PCR-tested at the 7th day and it comes up negative, 10 days otherwise without any final test.  German rules:  https://www.infektionsschutz.de/coronavirus/fragen-und-antworten/quarantaene-und-isolierung/

 

Here are the CDC quarantine rules for the USA: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html

 

These are the NHS quarantine rules for the UK: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/

 

Get better soon!

Thank you everyone!!! This stuff is just nuts. I too, had managed to avoid it until now. I think one of the major problems is that there are too many people that refuse to get vaccinated and the virus itself is mutating so rapidly. I know in my neck of the woods in the US we have so many people that believe Trump and his crap that they refuse to listen to the actual scientists and people who are actually dealing with this bug. And they act like wearing a mask is going to kill them. It's selfishness and stupidity rolled into one. I actually asked a friend of mine why she was so hell bent on refusing to get the vaccine. Keep in mind she is a hardcore Trump supporter and she said she won't get the vaccine because the government is pushing it so hard. Ummmm....we're in a pandemic, one that is killing hundreds of thousands of people....and you're calling everyone that gets vaccinated stupid. I don't quite understand how people who get vaccinated are stupid because we care enough about the people around us to try and protect ourselves. Too many people believe this is a government conspiracy. I was hoping that it would be like the Swine Flu and we'd be able to get a handle on it and it would just disappear. I don't think this is ever going away now because there are just far too many buying into the conspiracies. And it is sad. The problem here in Oregon is they kept shutting down for a couple weeks and then re-opening. And it is like, no....you need to shut down completely for a few months and go from there because you are not giving things enough time to start working. I truly believe I got it from my son who likely got it from school. His Dad told me he got negative results but this was like 6 hours after testing and he told me test results wouldn't be back for 24-48 hours so he's lying. Which I know why he's lying and it's not going to work. I still haven't heard on Kian's results and I would imagine the timeline fits for him to have been exposed and 2 days after he started showing symptoms I started showing symptoms. I wish they'd go back to distance learning or make it to where you have to be vaccinated to attend in person. My son's school started in person sessions even before the teachers had their second doses of the vaccines!!!! I just don't understand their logic on how they are doing this because doesn't it make more sense to shut everything down for a couple months and then see where it's at instead of the back and forth of opening and closing every few weeks. So far they haven't done a break in school this school year but look at the numbers now since the holiday break. I just don't know. I am frustrated. I do feel better than I did but I am frustrated. Love & Light you guys.

In the German parliament (Bundestag), today is the first major debate about the question whether there should be a mandatory Covid vaccination and if yes, under which conditions. Of course it is a hot topic and there is no result expected today.

Chancellor Olaf Schulz already announced that any vote about this topic would be a question of conscience and the members of parliament wouldn't be forced to adhere to any party line.

Hi everyone!

Covid found me and it's a new Omicron. Few days before understand what's going wrong I felt little tired. 23th was my first day with temperature, and it rises till 39.2. That day I get PCR which was positive. 24-25th my temperature was between 38 and 39.6 (it was highest at evening 25th)
Today I feel tired, but can walk around my flat (yay! 3 days in bed when u living alone is really hard) and finally do my job remotely.

I vaccinated twice by AstraZeneca (second dose was 30.06) and last week I thought to have a boosted this Friday, but Corona has different plans about me.
My doctor said I have easy version of ill
Hope in post-covid period I will not have so much problem like my friends (one girl lost almost all her hair)

And now I must stay home as long as I can 😧

Get better soon! Unfortunately it appears as if the protection after two AZ doses wanes faster than with the mRNA vaccines or heterologous schemes. You should probably get an mRNA booster as soon as possible after your infection as the protection after recovery from an Omicron infection appears to be only so-so, too.

 

My home town follows the trend of other areas with high Omicron incidences - more people get into the normal wards in the hospitals, while the number of people in ICUs mostly stays the same or even falls at the moment.

Well....Kian tested positive. He's doing okay except for the fact he is bored out of his mind and wants to be in school (he's one of those few kids that loves school....LOL.) I am feeling okay for the most part. The major thing is I get this phlegm stuck in my throat and have a hell of a time trying to dislodge it. The cough sounds bad but I actually sound way worse than I feel. I did start having my skin feel sore to the touch yesterday. It kind of feels like I am bruised from the inside out, if that makes sense. Since I had gone to the ER and they tested me and I had a positive result I got a text from the hospital about a research study which I elected to take part in. I figure if tracking my symptoms and telling them what is going on over the next year helps them figure more out about this bug and how it works, the better. I do feel kind of like I have lead weight sitting on my chest, just a heavy feeling. And I do tire out pretty fast. I really think the only reason I am not sitting in a hospital bed is because I got vaccinated. I was supposed to get my booster on Monday but the ER doctor said to wait until I am better and not sick to get the booster. I couldn't sleep last night and it seems like the asthma portion of the program does act up more at night. Anyway, Love & Light everyone ❤️

It's good to hear that Kian is mainly bored by now.

 

As for your cough - I sent you a PM. By the way, it's cool that you joined this study - the additional boon is that you are more closely monitored than people outside of any studies, so you will get to know much earlier if anything else would be amiss (which I totally don't hope - but it's definitely better to be safe than sorry!).
