Yeah I haven’t been sick since March... when I was super sick for a week after a 2 day site visit walking all areas of a Toronto area hospital, who had their first covid case there 2 days earlier.

I typically get anywhere from 2-4 colds a year, with at least 1 cold lingering for 1-2 months. My last cold was in December of 2019. This is amazing.

A few times I felt like I was coming down with something. I figured it was because I wasn't getting enough sleep. So I get go to bed early and slept in a bit and low and behold, I would wake up feeling okay!

My daughter did get a cold a little over a month ago. She did have to be tested, was negative, and took a couple more days to get over it before returning to school.

So sickness does happen still, but nowhere near as much as before! I enjoy this staying home and away from people thing, myself!

That is great news, especially with the vaccine forthcoming.

For those of us in the US it's exciting to think that in 9 days the capitol is going to be flooded with experienced administrators who believe in science.

I suspect the vaccine rollout is going to leap ahead in Feb, and with immunity from infection lasting 8 months I hope we're going to start really kicking Covid in the teeth by summer all across North America.

Interesting, should vaccinations then be prioritized for people who have never been infected?

It might make sense. There are 112 000 covid cases in Alberta. So you know who they are, and bump those people to the back of the line. Though the majority are in younger age groups anyway, so are already in phase 3.

I would agree with this but how could it ever be rolled out practically? Maybe with the targeted groups we are vaccinating now it is realistic but once we get out into the general population it would be too unwieldly to check records first before vaccinating.

Would it? It sounds like there might be a booking system, so it would be pretty easy to have a database flag when you book to check if you had a positive test or not. Obviously just stick to Alberta tests, to keep it simple.

Yes, if we had a booking system it would work. I'm thinking back to the H1N1 vaccination when it was just a huge line up, no pre-booking. That would not be workable.

Ya, I sure hope they aren't doing that. But I think I heard it mentioned at the last briefing they have a booking system setup now.

Super anecdotal, but I have a friend in Florida who got it last spring. He is ahem.. a Trumper and proudly doesn't follow any precautions.

Hasn't got it again, but I keep watching him as my benchmark.

the "good" news is that there are likely many many more unproven cases of Covid that occurred and so we could arguably be incrementally closer to herd immunity than the official numbers may indicate.

Not to debate in the good news thread, but I doubt that's the case. Simply put, say I get it but show no symptoms, and pass it along to my elder parents. There's a likely chance that someone I passed it to would show many symptoms, especially we know how it affects the elder much worse. Point being, while we don't know who shows symptoms and who doesn't, I doubt there are tons of us not showing symptoms - those around us especially in the older bracket wouldn't be able to escape showing signs.
