Well, yeah. We all took our masks off and can’t figure out why everyone is out sick. How dumb are we?— Elli 🍁Make a Difference! VOTE! ❤️ (@ElliAdventurer) September 24, 2022
I have been collecting a few interesting Covid tweets over the last few weeks:
It's such a ridiculous statement. Ie "we support your choice to mask". What's next? "We support your choice to wash your hands" posted in restaurant and public washroom doors? 🤷♀️. Or is washing hands now just for people who are scared? 🤦♀️— Elise Davis (she/her) 🇨🇦 (@Elise_ekd) September 25, 2022
I don't want to "get back to normal". I want lots of things to change. In fact, I can't imagine living through the worst public health crisis in a century and eagerly awaiting the chance to demonstrate that we've learned nothing.— T. Ryan Gregory (@TRyanGregory) September 18, 2022
Millions in people passed away, tons of people are still dealing with health issues due to the pandemic, many more are still getting sick and it’s the me me me mentality with no respect, love or compassion for others that is so bothersome.— CaptainCoby (@Captaincoby00) September 22, 2022
Covid didn’t go away. Conservative Premiers just got rid of the data.— Tim (@TimEastCoast) September 12, 2022
I don’t understand how 3,000 COVID deaths per week is consistent with being at the end of the pandemic. Seems like we’re adjusting to dying with the virus. We’ve become death blind. https://t.co/PzvgRDxG59— Jonathan Reiner (@JReinerMD) September 17, 2022
The not so hidden cost of infection based immunity.https://t.co/HYdIje32WI— Lamont Cranston (@LamontCrans) September 17, 2022
So far, based on QC data, it does NOT look like incidental deaths are the problem with Canadian death data. Undetected and unreported COVID deaths are the problem.— Tara Moriarty (@MoriartyLab) September 17, 2022
We still have half our COVID deaths to go unless we hustle to protect/save those lives.— Tara Moriarty (@MoriartyLab) September 17, 2022
It's like the problem with seemingly unexpected high mortality in Atlantic Canada during Omicron. There are more left to die from COVID in Atlantic provinces and Canada than in many places.
Long Covid appears to be one of the worst things that can happen, and nobody knows yet why some get it and others do not. Repeated infections appear to be problematic:
Guys Covid is the number three cause of death right now, behind heart attack and cancer. The big difference is if you're next to someone who has a heart attack or cancer they can't pass them on to you.— James S.A. Corey (@JamesSACorey) September 20, 2022
I had the opportunity to reconnect last evening with a colleague who now runs a long covid clinic. He is busy. He told horror stories. Avoid infection if you can.— David Fisman (@DFisman) September 14, 2022
My DMs here and on Facebook are starting to fill with stories of recovery from #LongCovid. Got several in last days from people battling 2+years who are turning the corner. And getting more and more stories of different treatments working for different symptoms. HANG ON!— Nick Güthe (@NickGuthe) September 24, 2022
So a few things are seeing good results. Colchicine. Ketamine. And Stellate Ganglion Block. All of them have been helpful with sleep issues. Colchicine for several other symptoms including POTS.— Nick Güthe (@NickGuthe) September 24, 2022
if you think that everyone with long covid is getting more respect & better treatment than pre-pandemic chronically ill people, ask yourself why you think that.— Brianne (sick person) (@bennessb) September 24, 2022
our healthcare system is in active collapse. the only place LC is well managed is in the imagination of propagandists.
No, it's not "just a cold."— Pam Downe (@PamDowne) September 23, 2022
“The risk of cardiovascular disease ... increased after one infection, but doubled in people who had two infections, and tripled in those who had been infected thrice.”

My once healthy and happy flight attendant friend has just resigned from her job that she loved so dearly. Why? Because she now suffers from Long COVID.— Jess 🌺 (@MeetJess) September 24, 2022
She is the 5th one on her team to resign.
Tell me again how mass infecting the population is working out.
Or it might happen like this: an elderly friend of the family celebrated his birthday this summer, got Covid developed some kind of pneumonia, then shortly after developed severe dementia and most days no longer recognizes his wife. All in 2 months.— Stephanie Westlund, PhD (@Stepnstop) September 23, 2022
Or it might happen like this. Daughter and son-in-law get Covid mid-July. Daughter recovers. Son-in-law diagnosed with leukemia. Spends 5.5 weeks in hospital. Now on consolidation round of chemo as out-patient after a 2 week break.— 💧Robyn D💉x4 Insufficiently Feminine (@KoparaFallsKid) September 24, 2022
The symptoms that were particularly affecting his capacity and competence:— tern (@1goodtern) September 2, 2022
Inability to concentrate.
And as the cases work their way through the legal system, the anti-vaxxers are finding out that yes indeed, a government CAN protect the health of everyone by telling people what to do.
He hid it from his employer and denied the severity of the problem while hoping that he would get better.— tern (@1goodtern) September 2, 2022
He didn't get better, just worse.
