If I gave him only two at the end of a bottle, or one rolled away from the others, he would eagerly search for missing vitamins. When he had four, he stopped searching.

“It’s not a question of whether, but when”: Infectious disease experts warn of Omicron surge CTV (Ann L)

From the IM Doc, please remember that there is only a small sample…and remember that the vax rate in his county is very high:

27 [new] COVID cases-in addition to our 21 cases yesterday-

A total of 48 people…42 were vaccinated-11 of them were boosted. 6 Not vaccinated…

In terms of mildness-7 of these patients met the criteria for monoclonal antibodies because their symptoms were severe…

I held my breath for being gentle. This will be the third wave we have experienced-last year’s OCT-this year’s JUN-OCT, and now. All 3 methods start with these large numbers of younger, healthier people who usually gather in the family, and then it takes weeks to get started and really settle down. Hospitalizations and critical illnesses are weeks behind the initial surge. This seems to be the exact same pattern. These patients used to be large family clusters. Many people travel the world by plane during their holidays. The big difference now-more people who are vaccinated are sick. Again-this is not mild. These people are suffering from severe flu-like illness-currently only one person is excluded from this group-so we won’t admit much.

GM added:

I don’t know what happened at this time.

You can see the video of Pretoria here:

One of the doctors said they did not see many real patients with severe illness.

But at the same time, he accepted many interviews with tents and oxygen cylinders in the background, which is very inconsistent with the system without too much pressure. Otherwise, why would they have so many tents…
