The funny thing about COVID is that it’s very unpredictable. Of all of us, who’d get it first? You’d think me, right? I work outside the home, I go to restaurants with friends, etc. But no, it was the reclusive N who got it. At least it seems so since he had symptoms (very mild) quite a bit earlier. Then, of course, he gave it to me, and I had bad symptoms. Klara, though, never got it. We all got tested, and she was negative. Obviously, we didn’t isolate her, or anything. I’m thinking she probably had it before but since such little kids don’t manifest or transmit, nobody knew.
I attribute the fact that N got no symptoms to speak of and I got it much worse solely to weight. There should have been a weight-loss program for the past 18 months. That would have been the best way of fighting COVID. Maybe even pay people to lose weight. Instead, we did everything to make people fatter. And still many people don’t know there’s a connection between obesity and bad COVID outcomes.
