    No I have been around quite a few people that tested positive for it but have managed to avoid it (im double jabbed as well) but my son got notably ill he has a persistent cough (more annoying that debilitating TBH) and is quite tired all the time .... he seems to be coming out of it already though but for 6 of the 10 days he has had it he was pretty grotty

    A friend visited the US recently. He had a proof of vaccination issued here (he received two doses of Pfizer, possibly even a booster shot). He entered the country and moved all over the mainland US without issues, and then he landed on Hawaii. There, his certificate was not valid because it was not issued by a US institution and he was given the choice of being quarantined or returning to where he came from. A quick test would have sufficed and there was a facility to do it there, but he was not given the option. In the end, he boarded the next plane back to LA, took the test there, got back onto the next flight to Hawaii, receiving the test results as the plane was getting ready to take off, and returned there. Completely bonkers!

    meanwhile here the fastest i've ever seen a test result was about 3 days if you're lucky, often it's 5 days average or longer. Add to this, false negatives and false positives. It's kinda hilarious when you get the call stating the result, and even if you get a negative result, getting told to "remain quarantined for 14 more days within your home or in the hotel" is absolute bullshit still.

    Talk about absolutely trying to bankrupt people left and right at every turn.

    Add to this, the shear number of people that didn't get the "approved" vaccination because it was delivered to them in one location as standard, and it's rejected in others. I know of a few people that were told it was ok, only to arrive at their destination and get basically forced to return at their own expense immediately because it still wasn't good enough.

    Frankly the fact that they want such high levels and yet still aren't shutting down cruise ships, copious numbers of public events, 50,000 people at a stadium, really? Etc and so forth. "we require you to provide QR codes showing your vaccination status to even enter a restaurant, but you don't have to worry about a damn thing at the sporting event where you're stuff liked sardines into the seatings"

    A covid outbreak occurs at a seniors home, kills a few elderly people that were having a hard time even walking much less remember who they are and what their family names were, and it incites an entire province getting sent to lockdown...

    Things have gone well passed stupid.
