Details are here:

 

COVID-19: Case demographics - Vaccination Details

 

 

Wow. The non-vaxxed numbers (as a percentage) who are hospitalised are ten times the vaxxed numbers.

 

 

Of course what's not being shown in these 5G/Bill Gates/government manipulated figures are the 38,794 people and one cat [*] who have died after receiving the vaccine. Stay strong, anti-vaxxers!

 

 

[*] You know the figures are legitimate if they're this precise.

ONGOING: How about posting here if you've just caught Covid, together with your vax state and age?

 

 

 

 

 

 

And symptoms if any.

What is with the availability of testing? Checked the healthpoint website and it only lists 2 available testing services for the area, both medical centres. As a family member had symptoms today, a phonecall to the centre they were registered to came back with the reply there was no testing available. Further hard questioning revealed the next available slot was Friday. The urban population of the area would be 16,000 and much more rural.

Brilliant. My son has a runny nose, and a cough. Off for a test tomorrow. I am immunocompromised right now and he will need to isolate for 10 days during which my Wife and I are going to need to cover being home when neither of us can easily be away from work right now.

 

It's not the end of the world, but a positive result tomorrow is going to make life in our household pretty tough for the coming fortnight.

Kids seem to get through it a lot easier but of course they eventually infect the rest of the family. My granddaughters friend got it and improved within a week but now the parents and other sibling have it.

Hope you have contingency plans in place to get through this if the worst happens. Family camping at home holiday for all perhaps and ditch the work. Even the PM got to have a break when needing to isolate.

Hope it’s nothing.

We've had this sort of thing a few times (except the immunocompromised part). Normally it's just a cold.

 

Fingers crossed for you and the family.

@networkn good luck, maybe nothing.

 

Daughter's school sent out an email Sunday night saying they had a positive case around the grounds twice last week. They would email close contacts individually. We didn't get any notification and daughter is fine.

Interesting the differing reactions - friends school in Normandale had a +ve case in the grounds last week and is now closed for 10 days.

Actually, I can explain that. It's about how classrooms are set up, play times are limited or not, and what structure the school has around spacing.

 

Our daughters school can isolate a few kids, because of the way the classes are done, and that play times classrooms are only allowed in their own bubbles and only outside etc.

 

Schools that operate differently will not be able to control or contract trace effectively and this means needing a wider net of isolation.

I was proud of my son, who has had SO many covid tests (and does find them actively unpleasant for a day or two afterward, bleeding noses etc) since the start of that because of Mum being a doctor, who pulled a face but then smiled and said, sure, need to do it for my school and classmates and friends, so that if I am positive we can help people understand the source and who needs to isolate.

 

I'll be having one today and my wife as well, because I had a sore throat in the hospital and a slight slight cough and pretty much for the same reason. If it's positive, things will be hairy!

Ok, a few hours later and it is now kicking me harder than the second did.

 

I am almost completely useless at work and should probably just go home and try to get some sleep

 

 

 

 

Home at lunch time, had some food and then went to sleep

 

Woke up feeling wonderful but they slowly decreased the longer I was awake.

 

Night sleep was way better than the night before and I woke up to about 90%, so went to work.

Keep in mind that the symptoms you have is the vaccination busy doing it's job of training your immune system. I found rest, paracetamol and plenty of hydration was the best. Kia kaha

As well as the lockdown preventing us from attending my mother’s funeral last year, and limiting numbers to 10. The red setting has limited the numbers able to attend her memorial service this month. Postponement (again) not an option.

 

And now Six60 have postponed their Auckland concert to until November. The disappointment is the original concert date was on my wife’s milestone birthday and I had secured some really good tickets to mark the occasion.
