I've been doing regular home LFTs, and thankfully negative every time. In typical fashion, I only read the instructions on how to do the tests and see the result, and because they were negative failed to read the next page that said I should report the result anyway.

I called the drug store and asked for a fast-reaction test kit and was turned down flat. I could make an appointment to be tested, and the pharmacist would do it there, but I could not have a kit to do it myself. With a sore throat, stinging ears and groggy head, I did not want to leave the house, I said. "Call the COVID Centre at the hospital if you have symptoms," said the telephone voice.

So I called the COVID Centre at the hospital and got voicemail. "This office is closed until Monday." Don't leave a message, f*** off and go away.

I laid low for three days, drank a great deal of water, and prayed. The grogginess went away, the ears stopped stinging, and the throat ceased to be sore. Dodged that bullet.

But what the hell? Surely the whole point of test kits is to find out if you have the bug before you get near any innocent by-standers?

I'm waiting to simply go to the grocery store (I need baking powder) until my COVID test results come back (should be in by today). Since next door has it, I got the test. And will be very careful about face-to-face with anyone. I don't know what variety of the virus she has, but she's had a "cold" for a couple of weeks, and just got tested this week. Community Spread is knocking on the door.

Going into the future our strategy is to give everyone multiple advanced home testing kits and if positive get a prescription from the doctor within days for the antiviral (now red) pill which is very effective. Getting there will be tough but it should work in Theory.

I know that, but I'd be interested to hear whether there's a surge in reporting-back from the home lateral flow kits, over and above that ten percent-ish that I mentioned. The headline infection number we're regaled with every day doesn't distinguish between variants.

Whilst I'm no conspiracy theorist, I can't help thinking that the government (with the best of intentions) would rather like us to see the blacker side of things, as that would make us more careful (which would be the best thing, after getting vaccinated).

As an aside (and as I'm a Liverpool fan), three Liverpool players tested positive yesterday so weren't playing last night. It turns out that all three had been double-vaccinated and boostered, and were showing no symptoms. A tiny example only, but a good yarn to put about.

Yes, Steve.
That was roughly what I was trying to explain to Donuel.

But I don't think it's the 'home tests' (LFTs) that are driving the current figures. Being home tests they don't feed into the stats for the expansion of Omicron (or 'Omni-cron' per some pundits) because they only give positive/negative. It is only the laboratory tested samples that can be separated into showing which variant is the problem.

Up to now the government here has been giving out lateral flow test kits like sweeties. Something has changed: we are suddenly being urged to test ourselves several times a week and every time we go out to do a bit of social mixing. The upshot of this advice is we can't get our hands on test kits now, temporarily I hope, for love nor money. I'm concluding from that that millions of people have grabbed the kits and are now testing themselves, unlike before when people just like me got themselves a couple of boxes of kits and hardly ever used them (the evidence for that is that up to two or three months ago the government were getting the "mandatory" reporting-back of tests from just one kit in ten that had been given out).

So more kits, more testing, quite likely more reporting-back...and an apparent surge in positives. Anyone see why I inserted "apparent" in that sentence? I think we should hold back on the panic stations until we see over the next few weeks whether there's a concomitant rise in hospitalisations and deaths...

Obviously, all that's from a UK perspective.

These posts are evidence of a pandemic fatigue that comes from being told to go back in our cave. Everyone feels it but the stress expresses itself differently in various personalities be it distraction or lashing out. Its a myopic disorder that can and will heal when more degrees of freedom someday return. As you expect some personalities were already damaged before the pandemic and will not change.
All pandemics are different, when you see one pandemic you've seen one pandemic.
I do not know if this fifth wave will be the worst of all or not but accepting change as a good thing does provide new or different opportunities.

My next door neighbor was complaining about a cold last week when we spoke over the back fence. Last night she texted to say she got three tests (Flu, something else, and COVID) and the COVID came back positive. So I'm being cautious and getting a test this morning. I've been around people since I spoke to her with the cold, so need to do my own little contact tracing routine.

This kind of thing should stop people in their tracks. Cancel appointments, don't go shopping, or anything indoors or around people, until the test results are back. I asked for the more sensitive PCR test that takes a day or two for results.

The neighbor is a non-vaccinated Trump supporter. We NEVER talk politics in order to keep the goodwill of the neighborhood up and running (I'm surrounded by Trump supporters - though the folks across the street, they were Biden voters.) After I get what I expect to be negative results I'll drop off stuff on her front porch until she can come out again.

Any reference for that statement?

In the last few days UK has reached a new high for the number of new cases identified. - correct
"All time high for covid cases" - pure assumption based on a lack of knowledge!
As UK is regularly increasing the number of tests administered (especially because of Omicron) it would be surprising if the number of positive tests was not increasing.

Even a US Supream Court judge is falling for the misinformation from pro lifers claiming the vaccines contain fetal tissue. an example of pro life LIES

The judge believes that a religious exception is therefore needed.

The truth is every drug you have ever taken has been TESTED on HEV 293 cells from 50 years ago to determine safety but they contain no HEK cells. Human Embryo Kidney cells.

Here is an example of drugs that were subject to HEK cell safety tests

anosmic - that's a problem, I imagine? How does food taste?

With practice your sense of smell can be very precise. Years ago I worked for the Forest Service as a fire fighter, and got pretty good at distinguishing what was burning (wood, leaves, grass, duff, etc.) and that extends to household items over the years. I find myself identifying grassfires and such in the area when the wind is blowing just right.

Olifaction is indeed a critical and relatively undiscovered field. I have met olfactory specialists who know very little.
I suffer from a highly acute sense of smell. Its well into the canine sensory spectrum. A forest or body of water can be overwhelming. The reaction can range from ambrosia to gagging. A well developed sense of smell includes 3D location and 5 part per billion awareness.
I have often said I have dog's sense of the world as well as having 8 canine teeth instead of which 4 were removed. Also my nasal air passage is the size of quarters as a result of deviated septum surgury which chiseled out the bone while I was awake to control blood loss. The feeling of acute smell sensitivity is that certain aromas feel like colors as well as smell.

at the same time that Amsterdam was coping with two passenger plane arrivals from South Africa,
a corporate party took place.
All one hundred twenty employees had been fully vaccinated beforehand,
and had in addition tested negative on COVID screening tests just before the party.

As per ANP and the NL Times,
since those Friday (last friday, still in November 2021)
arrivals of a total of 624 passengers on two planes
in Amsterdam from South Africa
(one from Johannesburg, one from Cape Town),
repeated screening and testing this past week
have returned enough negative results that
some quarantined passengers have been released to continue going home.

The quarantine hotel (a Ramada Inn) near the Amsterdam airport
had 44 passengers, all of whom had been screened on arrival
and whose tests had showed positive,
isolated there over the weekend.

On Wednesday test results came back negative for roughly twenty
of the quarantine-hotel passengers, and they were released.
The reports released to the news media
maintain standards of privacy and confidentiality such that
no Omicron figures are given regarding those passengers
whose Wednesday test results were positive
and who remain in quarantine near the airport.

There were about twenty passengers
who were Amsterdam/Dutch locals and were permitted, upon arrival,
to go home in order to quarantine there,
instead of in the Ramada Inn.
