Seeing how fst BA4 and BA5 are spreading they should be done with by Fall and not to be negative a new variant or two will have come along.

Surprise when hundreds of thousands of people get together Covid-19 spreads :roll:

"U.K. Covid-19 cases are on the rise again, according to new data, which points to an increase in infections following the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
A total of 1,739,700 people tested positive for the virus in the week to June 18, estimates from the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed Friday."

Not really and I know you are being sarcastic but this thing is not over, best thing is to try keep some distance from others.

Omicron BA5 is no joke.


"The omicron subvariant now dominating the U.S. is ‘the worst version of the virus that we’ve seen’"

Here comes another subvariant of Omicron, the Centaurus.

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/meet ... 16816.html

"A new Omicron subvariant on the radar of the World Health Organization—one some experts say could be the most immune-evasive yet—has been identified in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Fortune on Thursday.

There have been two cases of BA.2.75, dubbed “Centaurus,” detected in the U.S., with the first being identified on June 14, a spokesperson for the CDC said."

This Omicron BA.5 is not to be taken lightly, unlike previous Omicron variants that we more upper respiratory infections this one is more liek the Delta variant, affecting the lower lungs.

"Relatively new subvariant BA.5 takes some of Omicron’s worst traits—transmissibility and immune evasion—to a new level.

But it also combines them with a penchant for affecting the lungs reminiscent of the Delta variant that hit the U.S last summer and fall, according to two recent studies.

In the case of Delta, COVID tended to accumulate in and affect the lungs, potentially resulting in more severe disease. Until recently, a silver lining of Omicron has been its tendency to instead accumulate in the upper respiratory tract, causing symptoms more similar to a cold or the flu.

BA.5 is different, according to a study published June 10 on medRxiv—a Yale- and British Medical Journal-affiliated website that publishes studies not yet certified by peer review. Recent reports show BA.5 shifting back to the lower respiratory tract—at least in animal models—"with a potential increase in disease severity and infection within lung tissue,” researchers from Australia’s Kirby Institute wrote. They referenced another May preprint study that found BA.5 and close relative BA.4 replicate more efficiently in the alveoli of human lungs than so-called “stealth Omicron” BA.2.

“BA.5 not only gives the virus greater antibody-evasion potential, but concurrently has changed [where it tends to accumulate], along with an increased transmission potential in the community,” the Kirby Institute authors write."

My city has been closed for more than two months because of COVID-19. Many young men and women who didn't know each other were locked in a room without notices. Guess what happened, two months later, they fell in love.
However, you are an energetic boy, forced to stay at home, no girls, what should you do? ha-ha.

The pandemic has brought people closer and a lot of couples have broken up because of being together 24-7.
