What is the gain of doing things that don't help?
Makes themselves feel good

Things that have been done that have helped are vaccines, masks, social distance and others.
Until we stop making this political, we are doomed to fail.
That's why the places that have these mandates, no one is dying?

It seems you are confused. Those injecting them themselves with bleach are not dying.  ::)

This seems like the worst combination, basically brand new Pro version of Covid, plus entering winter season, plus Covid fatigue.
Plus a twindemic of COVID + Yeshiva Virus!


Gotta get rid of those chemtrails if weíre going to get ahead of this.

He has a point. Considering Trumpís 1/25 ban lasted almost an entire year as COVID waves came and went globally, this one might be a while.

A little. Is this a shortened version of COVID inexplicably peaking after 2-3 months, but shorter because Omicron? Or is this a reaction to strict restrictions put in place?

Anecdotally, it seems that the people I know getting reinfected now are getting it much worse than the first time (first time very mild and this time 7-10 days fever etc), and worse than those vaccinated getting it for the first time. (I don't know of any unvaccinated and never infected that have gotten it recently)

Do you know anyone who lives in a densely frum community who is unvaccinated and never had COVID? :P

Exactly. But my main point is that the reinfections seem worse than the breakthroughs

Yes. (Mutiple people, who never had any symptoms, and have taken numerous antobody tests)

It was said tongue in cheek, but itís pretty impressive considering the lax attitude thatís prevalent.

Then again, we know people who had covid and didn't develop antibodies. So...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Then again someone so thoroughly exposed might have a degree of natural immunity perhaps due to prior coronavirus family infection. My nephew was in a yeshiva where his chavrusa as well as pretty much the entire place had symptomatic covid. He was as exposed as can be but was negative and never showed antibodies. Doesnít mean heíll never catch it but it appears he is not as susceptible as the general population.

Not sure the immune system works that way but I guess itís possible.
