Bugger. 18 yr old still at home has covid... again. And this time she feels really shit. Crying type feeling shit. I'm very surprised she has it again after getting it Dec 30 the first time.
Both times from the same nightclub I think.

Some might say "whateva, I do what I want...." but getting covid from a nightclub once is bad enough. Shouldn't that be a clue that going to nightclubs is a shit idea at the moment? Just saying...

Sorta agree, and yet, imagine spending your whole vce stuck in Melbourne's long periods of lockdown, missing the French trip, your year 12 formal and valedictory dinner, getting out to bands, parties and clubs. She was one of the first to go and get jabbed, and that is part of the problem maybe, she got AZ.
I'm very pro masks and vax but I'm all for her getting out amongst it now.

For anyone interested in what the numbers of late look like as squiggly lines...

Say what you want about the accuracy of the data, but it's what we've got.

That really sucks. Also not a good advertisement for herd immunity. Might have been delta the first time and now omicron or maybe she never got over omicron.

Also, this is an interesting one. Tracks deaths above expected averages vs reported Covid deaths.
I only just found this and haven't looked at it in any detail at all...

This is a pretty telling graphic as well (same site):

I'm actually wondering if it was omi the fist time, as it was pretty mild, and unlucky enough to pick up delta this time

Vaxxed and had it recently; you’d have to consider yourself incredibly unlucky to get it again so soon and to be fairly sick from it.

I’m pretty much on the same page as you. If my kids were that age I’d be supportive of them getting out there.

Dont have kids personally, but I'd hate for my 18yo who has zero common sense or regard for others to be bringing covid into my house every couple months because "YOLO". You'd have to hope you can work from home or have good sick leave policies for every time they exposed you

I can tell you don't have kids. Covid at 18 would just be the next one out of a very long line of diseases they would have bought home.

My 4yo had Covid and zero symptoms. Probably because he has had every other corona, rhino and influenza virus known to man already. They could probably use his blood to cure AIDS and ebola to boot.

haha yeah. quite aware that kids are a huge vector of everything disease-y. I mean some stuff you cant help, like what they pick up at school, daycare etc. Was more referring to a scenario where the kid has finished school, still living at home, wants to let loose and YOLO's covid back to the family home over and over. Would shit me.

It would only be another point of exposure amongst a bunch of others; work, kids sport, my sport, mtb social rides, shopping for groceries, kids at school, public transport etc etc.

It’s not really YOLO if they follow guidelines - was intrigued by press conference the other day where the QLD medical officer admitted they were aiming for a 50% infection rate of Covid and happy with what infections there had been - WTF happened to if just one life can be saved lol
