By the way, around 700,000 malaria deaths last year, an easily preventable and treatable disease. Almost all were in Africa so 'no one cares'.

Thank the DDT ban for that more than anything.

I tested positive today for the first time since the pandemic started.

I am unvaxxed. I have "knock on wood" a very strong immune system. I am 41 years old and can count on 1 hand the amount of times I have been required to go to a doctor and the only time I have been hospitalized was to have my gall bladder removed.

Tuesday evening I had pretty bad body aches. I felt like I did the day after a football game in high school. Every muscle was sore, particularly my back. I had no fever, multiple temperature checks had me at 97.4-98.1 degrees. No cough. No breathing problems. However, I could not stay warm. I drank tons of gatorade, and rested in bed.

Today, I feel way better. I go take a test figuring, for the sake of others I need to see if I have it, and I do.

Honestly, today I feel almost back to 100%.

Hoping that that is as bad as it gets for me.

I'm far from an anti-vaxer or believe in any weird rituals, but I do feel the human body is designed to fight off and overcome some pretty bad things on its own. I have NEVER in my life used hand sanitizer and would like to believe that has helped strengthen my immune system. As weird as it may sound, I want my body to encounter small viruses, bacteria's, etc so when it encounters something, it knows how to fight it and knows what to do.

Maybe Im wrong, but thats just my opinion.

I am guessing you had your Gallbladder removed a long time ago. I had mine removed about a year and a half ago and it was just an in and out procedure. The whole process took about 4 hours and I was home again. Didn't even require going to a hospital.

Good luck with your recovery. And let's hope your immediate family stay OK.
You don't mention change in taste/smell, so probably omicron?
This variant really might be our salvation.

My gallbladder was about 10 years ago. It was supposed to be in and out. Turns out it was full of stones and starting to gangrene. Ended up being a 2 night stay and going home with a JP Drain tube in my side. Not fun stuff.

No loss of taste or smell at all. No symptoms other than 2 days of body aches, especially in back, minor headache, couldnt get warm, but with no fever.

So far I feel pretty lucky.

OOOps!
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky clarified that the number of children hospitalized with COVID-19 is nowhere close to the statistic put forth by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Friday, while noting that Americans can still work to reduce hospitalization by getting vaccinated.
The numbers claimed by Sonia was 100,000. Actual figure is 3,500. No comment was given by Chump Change.

I see in NY that they're prioritizing certain forms of treatment based on race. I wonder, do they have someone that's an expert at judging people's race by their skin color or do they do it by genetic testing?

Since it's behind a paywall, I can't read the rest of the article. But I'm gonna go with underserved communities of color.
