The world of medicine is a compassionate world where the naive and unaware are still saved regardless of their self-inflicted stupidity.

How can medicine be any less than totally compassionate to properly work for everyone?
Of xourse you are correct on this one.
One-in-five people are successfully doing that to healthily stay undamaged by covid.

Darwin will cull out many of the covidiots

The unvaxed should not be admitted to hospitals, our health dollars should not be spent on those who will not even attempt to help themselves. I say send rhem home with a few tylenols and Darwinian selection will do the rest.

WHO calls on countries to bring back mask rules as Covid ‘runs free’.

Fresh surges of Covid infections show the pandemic is nowhere near over, the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) chief has said, warning that the virus is running free.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he was worried that case numbers were shooting up, putting more strain on health systems and workers.

The number of Covid cases reported to the WHO increased 30 per cent in the past two weeks, driven by sub-variants of the Omicron strain and the lifting of control measures.

“New waves of the virus demonstrate again that Covid-19 is nowhere near over. As the virus pushes at us, we must push back,” he insisted.

He told a news conference that as transmission increases, governments must also deploy tried-and-tested measures like mask-wearing and improving ventilation....

Mystery illness prompts probe after three die from ‘strange bleeding disease’.

A team of doctors and health experts have been dispatched to investigate a mysterious disease that has infected more than a dozen people and claimed the lives of three in Tanzania, according to the government.

Symptoms of the illness include fever, headaches, fatigue and nosebleeds, the government’s chief medical officer Aifello Sichalwe said in a statement on Wednesday,

So far, 13 cases have been reported in the southeastern region of Lindi, including the three people who died.

Sichalwe said the patients had tested negative for Ebola and Marburg, as well as Covid-19....

Why-o-why can't people wear masks?

Simples!


Or we continue to suffer:

One in 18 has Covid in the UK
wrote:
... Nearly 3.5 million people, or one in 18, has the virus - that's up from 2.7m, or one in 25, the week before.

The rise is being driven by fast-spreading sub-variants of Omicron, called BA.4 and BA.5.

People are still able to catch the infection even if they have had Covid before...

... Hospital admissions of people in England with Covid are also rising...

... Vaccines are still doing a good job of helping protect people from getting very sick with the virus.

Dr Mary Ramsay, UKHSA director of clinical programmes, said: "We urge all those who are eligible for the spring booster to take up the offer as soon as possible. "Anyone who has not yet had their first or second dose should also get up-to-date with their jabs to give themselves the best possible protection."...

Covid booster: Will be offered to all over 50s this autumn
wrote:
... everyone aged 50 and over will be offered a Covid booster vaccine this autumn to top up their immunity and cut their risk of becoming severely ill.

Younger people at high risk from Covid, as well as health and social care staff, will also get the booster...

... it is expected we will be more social this winter than in previous years so the virus will have more chance to spread...

... "Vaccines were our way out of this pandemic, and now they will make sure Covid can never haunt us in the same way again."

The flu vaccine in England will also be offered to all adults aged 50 and over, the usual high risk groups and now to school children up to Year 9 in secondary school.

The Covid restrictions have meant we have barely had a flu season since the pandemic started. However, the concern is this year could be the first time we face substantial waves of both viruses at the same time...

I dunno either... the overdramatizing of wearing a $1 tiny piece of cloth made no sense to me. Fine and dandy if people don't want another injection, but claiming a mask was "traumatic," especially to children with zero evidence, was... well, typical sadly. Adult projection of what they imagined children to be feeling, without the inconvenience of actually having to ask them. Never saw a child have an issue with it; most of them thought it was fun as they had interesting masks (ie dinosaurs, dogs, superheroes.)

I never stopped with wearing one indoors as, well, COVID-19 never went away. It may be milder on average, but there are many more cases. It's more for the benefit of others, not as much myself, as there's plenty of evidence that they protect others more than the wearer. (See the old but accurate analogy of the peeing disease and wearing pants.)

WHO declares Monkeypox outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern.

The World Health Organisation has declared the Monkeypox outbreak as a ‘public health emergency of international concern’.

The maximum emergency alert came after the WHO committee gathered for a second emergency meeting, following a global surge of more 16,000 cases in 75 countries. There have also been five deaths linked to the outbreak, including three in Nigeria and two in the Central African Republic....

Yes...

Interestingly, that's very similar to the rate for here in the UK.


So is it that 1-in-5 of the population are more aware so as to be able to dodge covid?

Or is it that those 1-in-5 people are just generally more healthy in how they work and live?...


Somewhat an interesting mix!

Disclaimer: my workplace has not had regular testing since April of 2021 or so. I have not felt symptoms and so have not tested. I am broadcasting a 10g signal, though. I have been working on improving my health for 7 years. Less than a month ago I reached 10100 some odd feet in elevation and soon I plan to go another 500-2000 feet higher. I think we have a mix.

P.S.-anyone I regular interact with here wishing to see pictures or videos from that adventure, PM me.

BTW, on that adventure I reached the halfway point to the mountain peak. At that point is a camp. The caretakers there had COVFEFE19. Therefore, I kept my distance from the main cabin.
