Cases going up. Some timely advice from medical experts:

Anyone who gets COVID-19 can become seriously ill or have long-term effects (long COVID). The COVID-19 vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and others.

Research has shown the vaccines help:

reduce your risk of getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19

reduce your risk of catching or spreading COVID-19

protect against COVID-19 variants

Might as well keep wearing the mask another month for coronavirus and/or hay fever.

Yes. The experts say:

Make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. The appropriate use, storage and cleaning or disposal of masks are essential to make them as effective as possible.

I must confess, since I'm "over it" I have not checked in recently with the experts to see what the current advice on covid is.

Over the weeks, from just reading here you'd think the experts have changed their opinions. Todays little research project has been very enlightening and highlights that the same c19 advice as before generally stands (see my comments below) and that many commenters here are pushing a dangerous, false narrative for whatever reason.

Anyone who gets COVID-19 can become seriously ill or have long-term effects (long COVID).

Not anyone, only a few with underlying conditions and elderlies. Basically immunodeficient persons. That’s true since Omicron.

Everyone got it around me with nobody becoming severely ill even the diabetics. It has been with Omicron, not Alpha or Delta. The one who suffered for a few days had Alpha or Delta.

It's been true the whole time.

So 12 people in a city of 15 million are seriously ill with (likely not "of") covid. Be easy to provide details (age/underlying conditions) to help those who still living in fear and walking around outside masked to the eyeballs some context.

young healthy people without any preexisting condition can still be seriously sick or die because of covid,

statistically negligeble
