  1. And so Norway’s body count is again climbing thanks to what appears to be Norway’s new “herd immunity” approach to Delta COVID. (Sweden’s Tegnell make any consultation visits here, recently, by any chance?)

    And so, thanks to red state governor Erna’s refusal to mandate everyone facemasking, I’ve got it. I seem to be weathering the initial symptoms, but I need to know what comes next to see if I am in trouble, since I feel weak and tired and feverish, although I am taking Paracet, as recommended. And, of course, my *digital*/electronic thermometer has broken down (and how I wish I had kept my old glass&mercury one!)

    (I don’t have a car, and testers were supposed to be at my door an hour ago to test to confirm if I do have it, but now they’re overloaded with appointments, so ….)

    I have heard that with COVID you can feel better and then it lashes back at you.

    So I – and presumably other victims – NEED to know the *progression* of the disease.

    First, the runny nose and (violent, for those vaccinated) sneezing, then what? And then what? And then what? When should it be considered serious?

    It would be helpful if health administrators tried harder to see this from the victims’ perspective and address information needs accordingly.

    And at this rate, we’re looking at another of Erna’s economically (and socially) devastating total lockdowns.

    I’ve often wondered if Dr. Fauci’s initial opposition to facemasking was really to drive up the bodycount to kill off elderly Trump voters and get the blame for America’s high death toll (rightly) pinned on 2-digit-IQ Trump. Has Erna’s IQ ever been tested?

  2. Washington Post, September 1, “World: Massive randomized study is proof that surgical masks limit coronavirus spread, authors say”

  3. The testing team was finally able to get here – they have LOTS of appointments – and are already on their way to someone else.

    Wonderful people/ladies, but they shouldn’t be overwhelmed like this.

    Mandatory facemasking for everyone.
