Getting through it will boost your immunity better than a booster jab, so its quite unlikely you'll catch it again anytime soon. You might catch it again sometime in your life, that's just the reality. However it's likely going to be milder and your body will fight it off quicker next time. You'll be fine. :)

I wish that was true. My opposite neighbour and his wife have both had COVID twice now over the space of a year, the second time was much worse and the wife was in hospital for a few days. Thankfully both have made a complete recovery but are much more cautious now.
I’ve plenty links to the clubs playing and backroom staff as many on here know thank you very much. Fair enough, I admire your optimism. But you’re absolute ostriches if you think this squad, even with 2 or 3 new, “cut price” players with potential get us anywhere close

I’m 6 months out from my first (of two) Pfizer and still unable to work.  I’ve had tachycardia, aura migraine, pins and needles in arms legs and face, blurred vision, mental health issues, muscle weakness, I’ve gone from cycling 100km plus no bother to struggling to walk my kids to school 250m away, geographic tongue, muscle pain and a few more. It’s basically long covid, but as a result of the vaccine. I don’t think it’s that common, but there is a significant number of people that I’ve found online that have been having a similar reaction.  My doctors have dismissed me all year, until the last month or so where they’ve finally started listening.  I’m very surprised given the number of people I’ve seen that have had similar reactions that there has been no official amendment to side effect data to include these issues.
That's terrible mate and I'm sorry you've had to go through this. I'm very much Pro Vax however people who genuinely can't get the vaccine should not be forced to. I don't mean every nutjob who claims Jesus thinks it's satanic, I mean people like you and those who are immunocompromised. I hope your symptoms clear up and your doctor's take you more seriously.

I think robs health is a cause for his venting on here.
Goes a bit far sometimes but likes a good rant.

Venting on here means my missus doesn't have to listen to me ;)

Mine and everyone elses health (Govt ministers and anti vaxxers excepted). It's just awful that kids from poorer families can be missing out on hot meals due to this whole thing. Then their is the pressure on the NHS and the staff and its costing lives. We had my youngests mate round last night, poor kid is dealing with his parents breaking up and now his uncle, who is more like a Dad, is terminal with cancer, late diagnosis due to covid. I don't know the ins and outs, but thats the second person I know of who got diagnosed late due to this, the other ones is now dead.

About?
Solskjaer.  ;D

One thing I hate is how numbers are passed on to the public without the ability to compare. That isolates local effects, and maybe that's what people want. 40,000 new cases in England tell a story if you are in England and follow these numbers, but it does not put the entire picture in context. To me, the entire world-wide picture is more relevant. Why not give the number per million, so that one can compare country to country? Than it would be easier to see "hot spots", poor social policies, etc. And even the number of total cases per million means jack squat. It depends how testing is implemented. The most relevant number (IMHO) is deaths per 1M. Take Peru, for example. 91st in cases per 1M, 1st by far in deaths per 1M - 5,976. Then Bulgaria - 53rd in cases per million, 2nd in deaths per million with (3,953). Third in deaths per 1M is Bosnia (3,757), but it's only 73rd in cases per 1M. Etc, etc. Why would anyone even look at the cases per 1M unless testing is done the same way? The UK is 30th in deaths per 1M. It's not too dire in comparison to the world, or even Europe, but not too good when you consider only West European countries; only Italy posts worse numbers. And Sweden, whose policies were denounced by all West European countries, are ranked 55th in deaths per 1M with only a handful of European countries doing better. The US is 20th, ranking amongst the Eastern European countries and some South American ones. That's dire for an "advanced" economic power.

I agree mortality per million is the only comparable metric. But then you mention Sweden and it's been discussed to death here, but their population density is radically different.
I suspect their per capita income is much better too with more health service available.
"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent. "All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.

Anti-Vaxx mobs.
It's funny how these clowns refuse to wear a mask when asked to in a pandemic, but are quite happy to mask up while throwing bricks at police.

We are talking about entitled, immature, selfish people who are stamping their feet and saying "we'll do what we want, not what you ask."

I'm convinced that you get these types to do something just by telling them they can't do it.

Tell them they can't have the vaccine and they'll be on the streets screaming to have it as their right.
Tell them not to wear masks and they'll wear one just to spite you. Ask them to wear a mask to help protect vulnerable others and they go apeshit, but they'll then be happy to mask up fully while they riot on the streets.

I agree mortality per million is the only comparable metric. But then you mention Sweden and it's been discussed to death here, but their population density is radically different.
I suspect their per capita income is much better too with more health service available.
The population density has a secondary effect. One can compare metropolis areas like NY and LA, and indeed there are differences with more uniformly spread population, but they are not the driving factor.

I'd argue that scaling with per capita income compares social systems, but does not offer insight on the actions taken to slow or stop the spread of Covid. Yeah, the US would probably be the shittiest country, if the oil-rich Arab states don't skew the picture. But that's a different topic.

Regarding best policies, my personal opinion is that there is no clear answer. What if countries for which "Covid does not exist" reach heard immunity soon while others keep prolonging that with control measures, and as a result have Covid "controlled" for a decade? The cumulative deaths per capita might sway one way or the other. And yes, I know that there is a debate whether or not heard immunity is attainable. Anyway, there are so many arguments and opinions based on so little data that no other science field would consider credible enough justification... If the answer was obvious, all countries will take the same actions.

Thinking is overrated.
The mind is a tool, it's not meant to be used that much.
Rest, love, observe. Laugh.

For someone that overthinks a lot to my detriment I need to stick to that at times.

At this stage very few countries are still trying to control Covid in the sense of aiming for suppression or "Zero Covid" its more a case now of bringing in controls when the situation with the health service threatens to become untenable, Covid will be an endemic disease for the forseeable future.

Fat c*nt doesn't give a fuck, utter vile piece of shit. This was last Thursday on a train that serves the train station near where I live.
