I don't think different symptoms equal different strains. People's bodies just respond differently as the symptoms in your family shows.

I have a friend whose family all have it and they all show different levels of symptoms. Unfortunately, one family member passed away from it. Meanwhile a daughter in the same family had minor, cold like symptoms. I don't think that is different strains. It is different impact to each person. That is the insidious nature of this virus and is why we can't minimize the threat it poses.

Also I think it is a disservice to others for someone to say they had no symptoms. Good for you asking about more details.

I heard a Bengals coach on the radio last night. He had it and at first said he had no symptoms. Then he was asked more about it and he listed runny nose, temporary loss of smell, headache. Good job to the radio person for asking more and shame on that coach for minimizing. We are all still learning about this. We need people to be transparent and not act like this is nothing. The US is fast approaching 300,000 dead. No one should ignore that and act like this is nothing.

That is part of our new "Cloak and Dagger" normal.

The first doses of the vaccine are being administered as we speak at UofL Hospital.

Listening to the Today Show this morning, the anticipation is once these extra companies get authorization, the feeling is the vaccine will be readily available like a flu shot (eg. at pharmacies) by the end of February.

Yep. Moderna is just days away from approval as well.

I know the numbers are bad now, but I am remaining optimistic that once this first round is complete, the death numbers should start to quickly dissipate.

Did the surge from Thanksgiving come or not in Kentucky?   I'm not following it really closely but it seems that it did not.

Remember early in the COVID crisis when people scoffed at the death total predictions from COVID? Today the US is at about 417,000 deaths. That is in 10 months with shutdowns, masking, etc.  It is hard to imagine what the death totals would be without the various restrictions. For perspective, the US lost 405,000 in WW2 over four years.

I would love to know (and never will) the true number of people infected.  We test like crazy at the hospital where I work and I am amazed at the number of asymptomatic positive patients. I also know so many friends and family who were never tested but had mild to moderate symptoms.  I am so very glad that the vaccine is here.

I agree, between everyone already infected and the vaccine life should be pretty normal by summer.

I think we are closer to herd immunity than many think.

I think we would find differently if we took away the masks and went back to business as usual.
