Is swearing in social media posts a symptom of long COVID?

Is this what 'over' looks like?

 

 

That looks serious. You better continue to double-mask.

Long Covid is not real. It’s hypochondria.

The pandemic is over. COVID-19 is now more or less an endemic

...Pandemics are known to cause widespread disruption, illness and hardship. An endemic means a disease is spreading in a community at the normal or expected level. A pandemic begins to shift to an endemic once the disease becomes more stable and manageable. It doesn’t mean the virus goes away and that there won’t be occasional outbreaks. It’s just less intrusive in daily life...the virus will still be circulating, so infections are still possible and will surge from time to time. As with the more common influenza endemic, these ups and downs are common. But they don’t need to significantly change how we live...

https://www.adventhe... and manageable.

Are you confusing deaths with covid for deaths from covid?

Nope.  Are you still under the assumption that COVID doesn't kill?

I don’t know where you are getting your deaths from covid stats; BC stopped releasing them more than a year ago and now only reports deaths with covid.

 

As far as covid causing death, the experience among my family, friends, and co-workers is like the flu.

I know of several folks who are dealing with the after-effects of their covid infection, several months or a year later.  

 

Remember when HIV was a giant conspiracy?

not really, I was pretty young back then, but that also leaves me void of any responsibility of what happened back then. more free perspective

It is a reminder that you never know what the disease of tomorrow is and what its incubation period is. I know it caught at least two of my relatives off guard in its early days, before much if any treatment, as with many others

I assume you’ve all watched “It's a Sin” on amazon prime

It’s been two months since Moore and three other people were indicted over what prosecutors say was a fraudulent scheme to hand out falsified vaccine cards in exchange for patients making a donation to an unnamed “health freedom organization.” The specific charges against Moore are quite lurid: He’s accused not just of providing fake vaccination cards to patients, but of squirting vaccine doses down the drain and, in the case of children, giving them saline shots instead of a vaccination, presumably so they wouldn’t know they hadn’t been vaccinated and couldn’t tell others.
 
*snip*

“Dr. Moore,” reads one article, to which a site run by Moore’s supporters prominently links, “was trying to liberate the medical profession from government tyranny and CDC-inflicted genocide by vaccine, much like Oskar Schindler tried to liberate Jews from Hitler’s wrath and the gas chambers of the concentration camps.”

I've been sick once in the last three years.  I'm doing something right.  

Losing a week of work while sick would be a nightmare upon my return so... yeh, I'll continue with my 23 hours a day in my cell with one hour out for exercise...  :whyme:

Hang in there, Sebberry. Hopefully this thing will wear itself out and become far less of an issue.

Honestly it hasn't been much of a change, I'm hardly missing anything.  If I avoid eating from the cheese platter on a counter people are talking across at a party, it's probably for the better anyway.  I've enjoyed not getting colds for the last few years.

Dead skunks in Metro Van had contracted bird flu. From the province:

Testing has confirmed eight skunks found dead in late February in Richmond and Vancouver are positive for avian influenza.

The skunks were found in residential areas in both cities and were taken to B.C.’s Animal Health Centre due to concerns they may have been deliberately poisoned. Testing revealed the skunks were infected with the same strain of H5N1 avian influenza that caused the deaths of wildlife and domestic poultry in the province since the April 2022 outbreak began. The skunks may have contracted influenza by scavenging infected wild birds.

While influenza in skunks is considered to be a low risk to human health, there are always risks when people and pets come into contact with sick or dead wild animals, including skunks and birds. People who encounter a dead skunk in Richmond or Vancouver should leave the animal where it is and contact the B.C. Wildlife Health Program at 250 751-7246.

Since April 2022, wildlife infected by avian influenza in B.C. have included more than 20 species of wild birds, as well as two skunks and one fox found in rural areas of the province.

The cases of H5N1 avian influenza in B.C. are part of a larger national and international outbreak.
