Oh no!

I hope she's one of the lucky 99.9% of healthy people who will recover

I’m just glad it wasn’t Naomi Osaka. Would never hear the end of that one.

luckily Naomi Watanabe will just quietly recover and go back to work in a few days.

How come no photo with this post?

If you really need to see pictures of Naomi Watanabe then do a Google search on her name and select "Images", you'll find hundreds, if not thousands of them.

Mild fever means what ? She had nothing more than a fever.

She was vaccinated 6 months ago. It does mean

Vaccinated or not, she could have had the same symptoms

It could have been worst if not vaccinated

The vaccine is still effective after six months as she only has a mild fever. No need for a booster

Who cares? Like she is the only one getting Covid??

No need for a booster

The people that matter - medical professionals - are advising otherwise.

The smart among us will take our advice from them, not unqualified internet "experts", and we will get the booster.

I would hardly call her the ideal image of a healthy person.

As long as she doesn't occupy space in the hospital; get well soon

It's not the % of people who recover - it's the people who fill up the hospitals that's the issue

She is in the US where the mortality from Covid is currently 1.6% so she has a reasonable chance of survival. The rates of long covid are much higher and lets hope she can avoid that too.

The Hospital system is under strain in the US from surging cases so that can complicate things, but being famous should help her get priority service.
