Nothing much to write…
I’m seeing a lot of articles repeating that symptoms of the omicron variant have been mostly mild; all of them adding the caveat that it’s too soon to tell for sure.
I tested positive on Monday past, and it’s now Friday… the only symptom remaining a bit of phlegm. I don’t even have a sore throat… just a bit of mucus. And the tiredness, but then I’m a lazy fuck so it’s hard to tell how much of it is actual tiredness and how much is just lazy me keen to lay down and do nothing.
Ironically I’m doing a bit of work after hours… I don’t have a choice though… it’s a financial system and I happen to be the best positioned developer to fix certain kinds of problems, which can be costly to my employer. I know… that’s vague… but these are not details I can disclose.
The point is, I’m fine. I’ve a feeling this omicron variant of covid is not too big a deal, and if it does take over as the main variant, maybe this virus is going to mutate into something even less harmful over time. Maybe the worst is behind us and this pandemic is on the way out. Reports also seem to indicate that this variant spreads faster than previous ones, but then, that could just be a perception. Given that the symptoms are mostly mild, it’s possible that people don’t test for covid, thinking as I did that it was just a cold. This would logically lead to cases being underreported and the prevalence of the disease appearing to increase unusually hastily (when we finally do test and pay attention to the numbers).
