Wow! Refuah Sheleima!

Should have moved to Lakewood for the few weeks to avoid the wave hitting CLE that already passed Lakewood:P

I'm sure I don't have to tell you to get your whole family tested. Maybe you will be able to still go to Israel under the current rules.

I’m in Lakewood and thought for sure that I already got covid… until I actually got it last week.. it’s no fun… I still have low fever and terrible sinus pain. I went to a pa tonight and was told I have bronchitis… he prescribed me antibiotics and steroids. Hopefully that should do it.

R"S.

Which vaccine did you get? How many doses? When last did you test your antibodies?

IINM 2 doses Moderna in March/April, not boosted (he asked about booster efficacy data recently) and tested for antibodies 4 times with killer antibodies (2500+ Labcorp) two months ago: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=125811.msg2513988;topicseen#msg2513988

BTW, the link that I posted a few days ago https://erictopol.substack.com/p/where-do-we-stand-with-omicron suggests that the booster was effective in boosting immunity to delta back up to 95%, but only boosted immunity to omicron to 50%.  So even those who've had 3 shots are getting covid at a high rate now, thankfully usually a mild case.

True, but still at lower rates than without the booster. Timing of booster (vs. Omicron prevalence/wave in that particular locale) is significant, since the booster's effect might be relatively short lived.

Yes, of course, לכתחילה it's best to get the booster, but בדיעבד it might not have helped anyway.

I know someone who takes vitamin D every day and this might have helped him survive...

Probably true beyond COVID as well. Vitamin D is important for the immune system and many people have low levels, especially people who don’t get enough exposure to sunshine.

It's hard to know. I take Vitamin D every day for the past 5 years and my experience with COVID was more severe than most others in my age/health bracket.

3000 iu daily, but more importantly my vitamin D levels have remained within the healthy range.

Where is that bumbling government thread? @CountValentine, we would have been better served had we not turned this political and threw out all the bureaucrats.

Any resources on how long the contagious period is for people with Omicron?
