had a lot of covid positive colleagues around me this week. One even in my carpool.
Now my eyes are burning and I've a strange feeling in throat and nose today.... yay 😠
The best thing about this all:
Next tuesday I've my bachelor thesis' presentation and discussion .. which is the last step to finish my studies... I hope I'll be able to do this and not being bound to the bed with high fever
The antigen-test was negative this morning though. Keep fingers crossed.

Know anyone who is still masking or working to avoid covid to some degree? Maybe they feel more isolated or limited socially, and having more social options that match their precautions would help.
There's a free "Covid Conscious" friends and dating match system beginning. Open to all walks of life.
It's launching in Oregon, while also offering to help anyone who wants to start their own local group anywhere else.
A community building niche for people who struggle to find others will do a lot of people some good, please spread the word.
Young guy in teal framed sunglasses explains on TikTok why #Covid is a really really bad virus
Short, entertaining and factual 😊
My wife and I had #COVID in the last week of July/beginning of August. She’s just got a faint positive, which I had thought was pretty hard so close to another infection. Just shows you, eh? There’s a lot of this shit about, so be careful out there.

“Did you hear that #COVID is ramping up again?”, they asked. “Did you get your second booster dose?” 😷🤒
Yes, I get the vaccine whenever it is available/advisable. As someone with autoimmune disease, I take no chances.
Ok, question to folks that already had #COVID19: did you notice any changes in your dreams at night?
Since my infection my dreams have become very life-like, very intense. I tend to dream 2-3 unrelated story segments each night. I mostly remember what I dreamed after waking up. They are usually no nightmares, but neither „happy dreams“. More like a continuation of the real world…
This happened maybe 3-4 times a year before the infection.
Weder im Bus in #Nürnberg noch im ICE nach #München trägt irgendwer #Maske. Gestern schrieb ich noch mit meinem #Covid-krankem Projektkollegen, der sich als einzige Infektionsquelle seine Zugfahrten der letzten Woche vorstellen kann.
Um halb acht am Bahnsteig sah ich Leute in hässlichen Disney-Trachten, ein Becks ICE (yuck) in der Hand, augenrollend an mir und meiner #FFP2 vorbeigehen. Mag für die sicher ein Downer sein, aber vielleicht sollte man auch mal die Sinnhaftigkeit hinterfragen, zum Auftakt der Erkältungszeit auf ein Sauffest zu fahren. So ein Glück für Söders Landtagswahl, dass man den Impact der #Wiesn nicht mehr misst.
Und dann stelle ich fest, dass mein während des langen Urlaubs außergewöhnlich buschig gewachsener Bart die Schließdichte der Maske sabotiert. Werde ich kräftig stutzen oder entfernen müssen. Zeigt mir aber auch, dass die Maskenpflicht nutzlos ist, wenn jeder Hipster sie mit diesem einfachen Trick auf ein Deko-Objekt reduzieren kann (Frauen natürlich wieder im Nachteil).

Absolutely pathetic! All of them. "Deputy Opposition Leader Sussan Ley described the inquiry as a "COVID cop-out" and called for the government to "turn this limp inquiry into a decent royal commission so that people can get the answers to the questions that they deserve post-COVID-19". The only question I want answered is why they don't give a shit about anyone NOW and what went on in the top secret national cabinet meetings at the end of 2021! #covid
“The metropolitan government is urging residents to wear masks when going to crowded places or having conversations, to frequently wash and disinfect their hands, and to ventilate rooms well.
“There is a possibility that the epidemic will spread further in the future,” a Tokyo government official said.”
Even if that gets him votes in the primary, it's going to sink him like a boat anchor in the general.
You know what is happening? Nurses at all levels are taking their holidays now - they've had 4 years of this shit, have kids
kids are sick, and the unions are shit on point of care protections
I'd expect another huge surge of nurses and doctors leaving
Welcome to a new reality
Have you noticed personality changes in anyone post-#covid?
So my friend who had the blood transfusion for severe #Covid (and is medically fragile)…they can’t keep his O2 levels up even on the highest high flow. That means BiPap, which is step 3 (of 7) of this protocol: https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2021-08-26/pandemic-covid-19-stages-vaccination-intensive-care-respiratory-therapist
Stage 4’s where the roto beds start. :(
It’s not looking good. :(
I think after 5 days I'm about done with this round of #Covid -- fever seems to be gone, energy level coming back, and that horrible covid headache is gone.
I guess the vaccines and boosters really do make a difference, but it sure will be frustrating if yearly covid is going to be as real as yearly influenza and they don't get the boosters ready for each year's new dominant strain a little sooner.
So day 3 of #covid taking #Paxlovid for #COVID19 and I realize there's different color foils on the back. The dusky bronze for the morning dose, grey for evening. I realized suddenly I never saw this. My splitting headache at the time made me keep the lights low and I was too fogged to notice.
Did it matter!?
Oh, I really hope not! #aDayInTheLife

I am having a hard time getting my head around the fact that my sibling (who I have not seen since January 2020 because she also has been isolating and flying isn't safe for her) is about fly to FLORIDA with a friend to go to Disney. I'm the super-high risk one in the family, but she is also now high risk. She has been so careful and now apparently she has to do THIS for her mental health. Make it make sense.

Don’t listen to your governor or surgeon general. Mask up and get boosted, PLEASE!!
I complain at stores when I am mistreated and praise when my expectations are far exceeded. Today I took my transgender daughter and myself to a #CVS pharmacy for the new #COVID #vaccination. I felt a bit of angst about how their employees or other customers might react to my daughter. But the clinician and checkout person were both unfailingly courteous and patient with my daughter. Of course that is how it should always be, but that doesn't mean it will be. Tomorrow, I will call the customer relations number at CVS to compliment their employees. Here is the beginning of the CVS Human Rights Policy, which employees of this particular CVS store lived up to today:
"At CVS Health we are fundamentally committed to respecting and supporting internationally recognized human rights. We understand that human rights are fundamental rights and freedoms that all people are entitled to, without regard to race, color, religion, language, pregnancy, ancestry, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, mental or physical disability, genetic information, or marital or veteran status."

with 1 in 5 doctors basically out of practice, and that from a time when clinical masking was mandatory, imagine the shit show now with no masks

I am trying to predict the next 6 months of positive #covid-19 cases given two years of history in #Python. I have used Prophet with some success but the library is not updated and the maintainers admit there are better libraries out there. I tried StatsForecast with little success as it seems to want multiple years of data that does not exist. I have also tried NeuralForecast but I don't know what I am doing and its prediction was way off. So if anyone knows what they are doing or have any suggestion on a great library to use for predicting data, your help would be much appreciated.
It is in no way new; but it remains striking to me how dedicated right-wing outlets in the United States are to hurting their own supporters along with hurting everyone else.

Updated Fall 2023 Vaccine Chart by Katelyn Jetelina from Your Local Epidemiologist newsletter fame. https://yourlocalepidemiologist.substack.com/p/updated-2023-fall-vaccine-chart
I’ve had results back from my 24 hour heart monitor and apparently I had 144 sinus tachycardia and something called AV 2 heart block type 2
I think it might be #Covid related or possibly chemo damaged my heart. Does anyone else with #LongCovid have this?
If Hutchinson's account is true, think of how many thousands died, and how many millions more resisted wearing masks, based not upon science, but upon the impulsive vanity of one man who didn't want his orange makeup to smudge.
Monitoring indoor air for CO2 is tedious; I quickly stopped using my CO2 monitor altogether because I'd check every 10 minutes. BUT this recycled-plastic bird device from birdie.com notifies you only at two intervals: 1) it tips sideways when it's time to change its batteries, and 2) it tips down when indoor CO2 levels drift above the 1,000 parts-per-million threshold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56LE9SRpu-M Read more on the Canarie monitor at Gizmodo https://gizmodo.com/canairi-air-quality-sensor-has-plastic-fainting-canary-1848848147 . #COVID #COVID19 #indoorair
Leg Muscles and Glutes are sore today.
My resting heart rate has been going up over the last several days.
Then I noticed I was a bit woozy and had a slight tension headache.
Checked my temperature this am and was ~99.0 which is high for me but within healthy range.
Checked again and now I have temp of 100.8
Last week I was on a crowded ferry in very close proximity to folks with limited ventilation.
Im not saying this is #covid but its reason enough for me to be masking around others.
> The governor's presidential campaign has played up his handling of the #pandemic.
I learned today if I had waited 2 weeks later for my open heart surgery they probably would not have done it because so many caregivers are out with #covid now. Huh.

LOL at the irony of Dominic Cardy starting an evidence-based party. As NB’s education minister, he blocked me for offering to organize parent volunteers to build CR boxes for schools for free. He actually claimed that CR boxes spread virus around, and that NB classrooms were found to be fine. You’d have to be willfully ignorant to not notice the huge spike in Covid cases that occurs about a week after NB schools resume classes, unmasked. #COVID #corsirosenthalbox https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/new-federal-centrist-party-canada-1.6972891
Just found this while adding links to my new site.
On the CDC page "Excess Deaths Associated with COVID-19":
"NOTICE: THIS WEBSITE WILL BE ARCHIVED AS OF SEPTEMBER 27, 2023."
My 1st thought was "well that was ill-timed" thinking it's been up for some months.
But then I checked the Wayback Machine & found that it wasn't there 2 days ago on Sept 19.
Interesting move seeing as Biden just validated that we're now in a wave by announcing the return of free home #Covid tests.
On est en plein dans un pic de contamination covid assez énervé: «Le nombre de passages aux urgences hospitalières a progressé de 57 % durant la première semaine de septembre.»
- La vaccination réduit les risques, mais chaque réinfection abime le système immunitaire et augmente les risques de covid long
- Tout le monde ne peut pas se faire vacciner, et beaucoup de personnes handis paient le prix de l’isolement ou du risque élevé pour leur santé.
- Il y a des cas asymptomatiques, on peut donc contaminer si on n’a pas de symptômes.
- Le covid est aéroporté, c’est-à-dire qu’il est transporté dans l’air qu’on respire, et qu’il remplit une pièce fermée et reste en suspension, tel de la fumée de cigarette.
Un des gestes les plus simple est de faire un rappel de vaccin. Des vaccins prévus pour faire face aux nouveaux variants seront disponibles en pharmacie à partir du 2 octobre en France. Mais ce n’est pas suffisant.
Il est aussi important de privilégier l’extérieur ou les terrasses pour les sorties, d’aérer nos espaces de vie et de rencontre, etc.
Enfin, probablement le geste le plus efficace, est de porter un masque, dans les lieux publics clos en particuliers (transports en commun, supermarchés, boutiques, administrations, etc.). Le masque chirurgical est une bonne solution si vous n’avez pas mieux, mais portez de préférence un masque FFP2 qui est beaucoup plus efficace, et de façon plus prononcée pour se protéger soi-même.

Day 9 of #covid
Previous symptoms have disappeared again yesterday but I have relapsed in fatigue.
Sudden drop in blood pressure when I stand, climb up and down my stairs.
Metallic impression at the back of my throat and nose, and bruise-like sensation behind my eyes.
It was difficult to concentrate at work so I worked only a half day.
Hospitals everywhere could once again mandate masks tomorrow, and they should.
In the U.S. alone, about 50 million children go to public school every day, where covid protections are a distant memory.
Schools are superspreaders. Facts.
Who, though, is still pushing for mask mandates in schools?
Unless we collectively focus on that problem, we'll never make a dent in the pandemic.
Walk out, sick out, strike, shut it down.
#PlagueHouse Day 5: Matt tested negative two days in a row, so back to work he goes tomorrow. I haven’t retested, because tomorrow is day 5 for me, and we’re supposed to isolate for five days minimum, so I’ll check in the AM.
Head is still full of tinnitus, and I’m still generally fatigued as fuck. I could sit up longer today, but standing is limited to less than 5 minutes.
It’s good the Mr. bounced back so quick, because I’m pretty fucking useless as things stand.
@leadegroot that is very strange, as far as I can see any adult can get a booster if it’s been at least 6 months since last vaccine/infection 😕 This is current as of yesterday ~ https://www.health.gov.au/our-work/covid-19-vaccines/getting-your-vaccination/booster-doses
If you are near Stanford Blood Center and are A+ (or compatible), a dear friend of @unixmercenary and mine is in a nearby hospital with Covid that's gone far enough south to need blood transfusion. :(
If you can donate, please consider doing so (or boosting). They are also looking for Type O.
Tell me again why we are letting Covid run rampant through schools?
''The findings comparing the propensity matched cohorts showed that prior COVID-19 infection was associated with a significant increased risk for RSV infection during both 2022 and 2021 RSV peak seasons. This finding is consistent with our hypothesis that COVID-19 is an important contributing factor for the 2022 surge of severe pediatric RSV diseases,''
