    I only hope I haven’t infected my parents. I made a test yesterday in the morning because I had a tiny bit of a runny nose, not feeling ill at all. It was negative.
    Then I met them for maybe an hour or so, because they insisted on recording a short song for a birthday, which I accompanied at the piano.
    Later, I acquired fever, and a test at night was positive.

    I mean, I kept my distance and went out to the back porch as soon as the recording was done, but I didn’t wear a mask because I didn’t really think that could be Covid. I still don’t have a clue where I could have been contaminated, the period of incubation must have been either less than 1.5 days or more than 9 days. Unless one of the kids were positive and went undetected.

    Get well soon. And hope your parents will be just fine, preferably not catching it at all. But if it is any comfort, covid was my *70th* birthday present, and although I could certainly have done without it, it has not been serious. I'm vaccinated^3, not fit, bit no "co-morbidities."

    And, of course, hope it will be no worse for you: 4-5 flu-like days

    It's not a pandemic anymore. It's endemic. Expect it to go round and round making infecting people. The silver lining that over time, fewer people will get very sick and die. The unfortunate thing is that the virus will cull those most susceptible and/or the stubborn. I got my three shots. Tested positive twice, but no or barely any symptoms.

    @purr1n "Expect it to go round and round making infecting people."

    And don't expect it to be a one off occurrence. Quite likely because, variants, but also because... just as vaccine expectations have been downgraded, last I read was that prior-infection immunity fades out too.

    Lets just hope that vaccines+prior+whatever keep it mild. This week for me was no worse than an average flu: fingers crossed for next time!

    Thanks for all the kind words. The fever is down from 40°C yesterday to ~38°C today, so I’m feeling much better. Listening to music again! :)

    It seems the choir on Thursday evening was where I got it. 10 others are ill, too, not all of them positive in tests yet, but most.
    Which leaves hope that I might not have been contagious on Saturday morning. I’m vaccinated 3x, my parents 4x … Let’s see. No symptoms or positive tests in the family yet, either.

    The Omicron BA4 and BA5 have more breakthrough cases and vaccines seem to do nothing. Booster supposed to be out by the fall. Be well!
