Re: New mutation/covid variant

Good article from The Atlantic (which has had good coverage of the pandemic in general, especially articles by Ed Yong) about the new SARS-CoV-2 variants: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/a...riants/617694/

Both the article and the website in general was interesting. I don't think I've read from a news source quite like that one before. Most ive read seem to have sensational titles and only discuss science sparingly (maybe I've been visiting the wrong sites). Any other interesting news websites/channels?

There are a number of sites. One that comes to mind, which is geared towards people in the medical/health/research fields, is STAT News.

Their featured COVID story at the moment actually has to do with how the pandemic is affecting people with OCD-related germ phobias, but as you can see from the linked page, they cover many aspects of science, technology, and policy.

They also have articles and videos on the emerging variants. Here's a short video, for example: https://www.statnews.com/2021/01/14/...virus-mutates/ The video underscores the point that widespread infections provide more opportunities for the virus to mutate.

I'll try to post some more good info sources later.

Re: New mutation/covid variant

Well, the first appointments for vaccines have become available for selected individuals in my organization. I am towards the end of the priority list, but it's feeling a little more like it might actually happen sometime in the next month or so (fingers crossed).

Both are still sick, but are able to eat and drink which is a good thing.
And a couple of days later my bonus daughter who has had the vaccine
and tested negative also has symptoms of the covid virus. They say bad
news comes in threes, eh?

Yippee!!! That's good news.


Lunacie, are your family members and associated roommates still managing with mild symptoms? Hope they will recover quickly and fully.

I was surprised that my bonus daughter has covid symptoms after getting the
vaccine last week. She reminded me that it takes 2 rounds of vaccine to gain
immunity. The sinus symptoms seem to be the worst for her. She works in a
retirement home and her first sign was when changing a dressing and the
other nurse was gagging from the smell, but she didn't smell anything.

My granddaughter has been very, very sick. Fever, body aches, moving into
tummy ache, nausea and diarrhea. Sunday night she called with the worst
migraine she could remember. Time for another care package with Excedrin,
Benedryl and 7Up. I cautioned her that if she kept throwing up with diarrhea,
and not keeping any liquids down, she'd need to get an IV infusion so she
didn't end up with kidney failure like I just over a year ago.

So far none of the 3 has needed the ER or hospital. Fingers crossed. Thanks.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that your granddaughter's having a rough go of it.
Like you suggested, if they get through it without needing to go to the hospital, that's good news (relatively speaking).

Re: New mutation/covid variant

Lunacie, your family will be in my thoughts. I do hope for a quick and speedy recovery.



Tyg...I hope to hear more about your experience with the shot.
