    And they wouldn't be wrong. Only 13% of their population got a booster and most of the vaccinated having trouble now got it very early (around February) and are 60+

    nope, that's not what I said. the vast majority of those hospitalized for COVID are unvaxxed.
    I was talking about boosters. Why do people take offense at the vaxinated not wanting boosters????

    Not sure who made this. It stands put to me that neither WHO nor the CDC has strongly emphasized air quality and engineering controls in an airborne pandemic.

    Given how many people work indoors, indoor air quality deserves the same public health emphasis that food and water received in the early 20th century, tbh.

    Today in Science.org: "scientists see a really really tough winter"

    How good Omicron is at immune escape is also becoming clearer. Preliminary data from South Africa showed its rise coincided with an unexpected surge in reinfections. This past week, laboratory assays by several groups have shown antibodies, whether elicited by vaccines or a previous infection, are significantly less effective at neutralizing Omicron than other variants. And based on the first cases, scientists in the United Kingdom have estimated that protection from symptomatic illness is much lower in people who have received two doses of the AstraZeneca or messenger RNA vaccines. The good news is that boosters appear to bring protection against disease back to about 75%, and probably even higher against hospitalization. “I think it all boils down in the end to protection from severe disease,” Krammer says.
    Harvard University epidemiologist William Hanage says the question of severity is still impossible to answer. Recent genomic comparisons suggest Omicron only began to spread in mid-October—earlier work had estimated late September—so the variant hasn’t infected enough people to conclude much of anything, he says. By chance, many of the early cases in South Africa happened to be in younger people, who are less likely to develop severe disease. And even if the variant turns out to be inherently milder, the volume of cases will likely overwhelm health systems. “A colleague put it really well in one of our little depressing Slack channels,” Hanage says: “There’s not much that can spread this fast and be benign to a society that’s already got full hospitals without it.”

    For now, most European countries are hoping that providing existing boosters widely, in tandem with added control measures such as a ban on large gatherings, mask mandates, better ventilation, and working from home, will help lower the wave of Omicron infections and prevent hospitals from buckling.

    Wasn't made in the US based on the spelling of "defense" as "defence".

    I haven't been hiding, I went to work as scheduled five days. Also went out as needed to shop. I did mask up at home and when out in public, and I sorta-sequestered for a week in a separate bedroom/bathroom.

    Every 36 hours post known exposure to two infected co-workers, I home tested.

    A week has passed, all my tests were negative and I'm symptom free. Same with my sweetie. Home sequestration over.
