Sam, I am going to cue you in on something you probably already know. Someone that knows a subject backwards and forwards, and is reasonably intelligent, can explain their position in concise, accurate prose that is easy to understand.

You can extrapolate that to explain the cryptic responses.


Could be the explanation Red,  and could be why he insist that you do understand when you explain that you don't.

Learned ages ago….

….in what we’re actually some real, very life affecting circumstances, as opposed to the nattering that goes on here, that you never dignify a situation that is precipitated by someone asking a question to which they already know the answer.

If people cant ask you to explain what your talking about, because they honestly don't know then why converse with you at all.  Later.

The most-reported symptoms of COVID-19 are now a headache, sore throat, and runny nose, according to the research team behind a U.K. symptom tracking app, and medical experts here in Canada say various factors could be causing the illness to feel more like a common cold.

Re: Sam, again, "read the whole article"!

Quote, "Several Canadian experts who spoke to CBC News say vaccination programs prioritizing older adults, and a greater awareness of the range of symptoms, could both be playing a role in the shift ..." 

Quote, "... noted that rising reports of mild symptoms on the U.K. app could also be tied to another factor: ever-greater awareness of the illness and the range of symptoms it causes."  "Is it truly that these are things that are related to some difference in the disease?" 

   The Delta variant sure killed plenty of people in India.  Don't get your hopes up too much.

Re: Sam, already ....

Sam, new cases in the UK have already jumped 5-fold in just a few weeks, hospitalizations have doubled.  Delta is 60% more infectious than Alpha which was already 50% more infectious than the wild type.  Alpha was already 30-70% more deadly than wild-type. 

Meanwhile, two doses of Pfizer are 88% effective vs 95% against Alpha,  33% vs 52% for only one dose. 

  No Sam, it's not good news.

a bad hangover

Just a fearmonger Rick.  If your vax protects the vulnerable this thing is over.

"Prof Tim Spector, who runs the Zoe Covid Symptom study, says catching the Delta variant can feel "more like a bad cold" for younger people.

The fear is that those with mild symptoms may mistake their covid for a cold or a bad hangover and not think to take a test or self-isolate."
