People's experiences with Covid, specific variants, and Long Covid.
What we learned from our family's outbreak about preventing COVID's spread 24 dec 2021 NPR https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/12/24/1066828725/our-whole-family-got-breakthrough-covid-at-thanksgiving-this-is-what-we-learned "Just reminding everyone that severe COVID symptoms often start nearly 7 to 10 days after symptom onset. Many patients we admitted with hypoxia noted that their cold symptoms started to go away around days 4 to 6. It's a bit premature to say you have a mild case upon diagnosis."

Omicron, days 5/6, no better. Me: razor blade sore throat, fatigue, body aches, chills, night sweats. Wife: fever >102° off & on last 15 hrs, excruciating bone & joint pain, fatigue, sore throat. We are middle aged & healthy. Omicron is NOT "mild". I fear for the vulnerable.
