I had five relatives and neighbors get COVID, for their second time, 2 weeks ago!

All are well now except my daughter has lost taste& smell, for now.


The Reported US cases continue to drop nicely, especially compared to 2021 when they were exploding.

2022 deaths are still climbing a bit but have slowed from previous weeks and are far below 2021 levels.

I'm guessing that increase is from longer term patients finally falling to the virus (and the various comorbidities).


I am still testing positive for hypochondria every time I sneeze or cough! LOL!


Good health to all!

Scientists find antibodies that make 'boosters' unnecessary...


In a major breakthrough in the battle with the COVID-19 pandemic, Tel Aviv University researchers have isolated two antibodies that neutralize all known strains of COVID-19 – including Omicron – with up to 95% efficiency and will strengthen the immune systems of people at risk.

Targeted treatment with antibodies and their delivery to the body in high concentrations may serve as an effective substitute for vaccines, especially for at-risk populations and those with weakened immune systems, according to the researchers. By using antibody treatment, there is a possibility that the need to provide repeated booster shots to the entire population every time a new variant emerges will be eliminated.

The study was published in the journal Communications Biology under the title “Conformational flexibility in neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 by naturally elicited anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.”

I do not know why I never got covid. Have doen 6 Caribbean cruises since Fenruary 2020 when Covid had already arrived. Have done weekly visits to dine in land restaurants, 1 or 2 visits every week to stores, many visits to cancer clinic to escort my wife (she was diagnosed 5 years ago) , 5 visits to Gym every week, and miscellaneous visits to pharmacies, eye doctor, ear doctor, 2 visits every year to Quest lab for routine blood work, etc etc. etc.


Point is unlike Biden, I am not hiding in basement. I am leading normal life activities. I got tested for covid at CVS before all last 5 cruises. It was a requirement. Also have done home tests for covid. Never tested positive. So what is protecting me? Natural immunity having spent 20 years of my life in virus infested India or is it the 4 jabs of covid vaccines?

So what is protecting me?


Lots of variables in this for sure.

O negative blood is said by some to have protection benefits.

Avoiding stress with it's Cortisol stimulation. Sunshine & Vitamin D, Zink is supposedly good.

Diet and overall vitality.

On my 53rd year of happy marriage, sometimes it's just the luck of the draw.
