Thanks, all! It's official, I'm the proud (?) owner of the novel coronavirus. It was a rough feverish weekend, but the fever has broken, now I'm to isolate at home for five days.

It seems as if we all were meant to get the virus eventually.
Wish you a continued speedy and full recovery.

That’s what they were telling us from the very beginning, with a virus this infectious it is inevitable that everyone will get it. Thee we goal was to slow it down to avoid overwhelming health care providers and delay infections until after vaccination kicks in.

There were estimates at the start of the pandemic that suggested reaching between 5 and 22 mio fatalities in total.

Here in DK, fatalities have gone up after the total reopening, though 30-50% are not directly related. There's been almost no debate about it. Numbers are going down now, but it still takes time.

An official report here in DK criticizes the health system here being too reluctant in giving the 4th shot, resulting in too many fatalities among the elderly in recent months.
