I just cancelled my holiday plans and will be sheltering-in-place. #Omicron is exploding in #NYC.— Kristin Urquiza #MarkedByCOVID (@kdurquiza) December 19, 2021
While I am grateful my 3 vaccines protect me from death; they do not protect me from #LongCovid

I tested positive for COVID this morning. I have had three Moderna vaccines. I don’t leave my house without a KN95 mask. I don’t eat in restaurants. My family has been extremely cautious since March 12, 2020.— Darien Wilson #COVIDisAirborne (@DarienSWilson) December 21, 2021
We got COVID for Christmas because of poor public health policy.? pic.twitter.com/2qVKSJwa4d
If you have ever had the common cold, you have been infected with a coronavirus, which probably caused a global pandemic several centuries ago. The 1889-1890 Russian Flu pandemic might have been caused by the last cold virus that jumped from an animal host to humans. That’s the way these things usually go as respiratory viruses evolve after millions of infections to become less lethal and more transmissible.
Note: H1N1 which caused the Spanish Flu still circulates as a flu virus.
