    It's kind of like when you have a really effective cleaning product, but folks don't get the caustic smell so they don't think it works.

    People are weird, man.

    I'm pretty sure I had Covid once or twice last year and I'm still (Aladdin) sane. Or perhaps my natural madness makes me immune.

    yeah, it's hard for me to tell when I'm supposed to be crazy. It's like if you smoke pot a lot, sometimes you wonder if you're high or not.

    I wouldn't know about pot, never smoked it. I hear it makes you giggly though. I posted this at 4.20, lol

    The situation in India is getting worse by the day. We have yet another mutation that is deadlier AND more infectious than all previous ones. As we have pointed out many times on this thread, that is not how a normal virus is supposed to behave and I fear this may become a permanent feature of our lives. We may get yet another deadlier and more infectious variant every couple of months.

    I have a friend in Delhi, who tells me people are dying all over the place, most families have someone who is seriously ill or has already died. Hospitals haven't been accepting patients for days now and people are just dying in cars or on the pavement outside hospitals. Real number of deaths are supposedly 30 times higher than the official numbers.

    Here in central Europe, restrictions are being eased and there is a gradual reopening taking place, but right now, it seems premature.

    Also, I have vaccine regret...

    If I'd waited just a few more days, I could have gotten the Pfizer Vaccine, which is the one with the most impressive technology behind it and offers the best protection against all variants, including the recent mutations.

    Still, I'm hoping that the fact I already had antibodies from my previous infection and basically now have a booster shot with the sinopharm vaccine, will keep me safe.

    I hope the vaccine does provide you protection, Chris. You are affirming my personal intent which is to remain careful even after vaccination. I don't really expect things to 'go back to normal' since this is part of a new normal.

    Yeah, it seems CV will stay with us forever, like Influenza. Maybe it will become seasonal and we will need twice-yearly inoculations. Kinda sucks, but at least we have something to fight it with.

    I also received my immunity passport in the post a few months back, based on my recovery from Covid, but it expires soon. Should get a new one after my first inoculation with the Sinopharm Vaccine. Problem is, since I got the Chinese Vaccine, my immunity card won't be accepted in the EU, so I won't be able to travel, only to a few countries, like Slovenia and Serbia.

    The good thing is, that here in Hungary, an immunity passport opens things up considerably. I can now sit inside a restraurant or cafe, go to a cinema, a thermal bath, concert, hoteé or pretty much do anything I like. The worrying implication is that those without one are essentially treated like second-class citizens, they are still forbidden from doing all of the above.
