I live in Southern California and it seems like everyone over here is over COVID. No one masks. Some people get boosters.
I feel like I’m an anomaly when it comes to COVID.
I realize that all the vaccines were developed quickly and anyone that takes them are being a guinea pig to a certain extent.
I also believe you don’t want to get COVID. You pretty much want to avoid it all costs.
It seems most people fall into either two camps:
1) Get vaccinated and get boosters and move on.
2) Don’t get vaccinated and move on.
But both camps doesn’t really wear mask. I mean, I see a few people wearing masks, but most people don’t around here.
In my opinion, masks are really the only option at this point. And not surgical masks. N95 masks.
I’ve taken one shot of J&J and thankfully, I don’t think I ever got COVID (I got a cold like sickness in March 2020 but it was really mild). I’m very on top of wearing my N95 mask though. And I’ve always been wearing N95 since early 2020.
I always wear my N95 in the grocery store, when I go inside a coffee shop. I never eat inside restaurants. Only outside. I don’t even go inside people’s homes without a mask on.
Three Alarming Things I Came Across
SARS2 is worse to the immune system than SARS 1
After mild sars2, plasmacytoid dendritic cells do not reconstitute, even after 7 months.
In SARS 1 they come back in 7 weeks

1/🧵 Our cell’s genes are rewired in MILD COVID 🧬
Stunning data in @Nature
White Cells (monocytes) switch gene expression from an established innate immune profile to a pro-clotting signature in COVID.
