gbg,

That article was from SEVEN MONTHS ago, when the virus had only been in the US for FOUR MONTHS. There's no way in 3 months of spread that they could determine if ANYONE, much less what percentage of people would actually have long term problems from the virus. You're just grasping at straws.

As for those that "have minor symptoms, later on much more damage is found", again, enough time hasn't even elapsed to determine that. And if you notice, you hear very little now about long-Covid, because its such a small percentage of cases.

The thing is, for every ONE PERSON that's written about in these articles, there's 100,000 people out there that had mild or no symptoms and DONT have long term issues.
Ok, this is the latest on Long Term Symptoms and its still 1/3 of covid19 cases all ages!!!

About 33% of COVID-19 patients who were never sick enough to require hospitalization continue to complain months later of symptoms like fatigue, loss of smell or taste and "brain fog," University of Washington (UW) researchers found.

"We were surprised to have one-third of people with mild illness still experiencing symptoms," said lead researcher Jennifer Logue. She's a research scientist with the UW department of medicine's division of allergy and infectious diseases, in Seattle. "If you contract coronavirus, there's a good chance you could experience a lingering effect."

I mildly surprised to find that Tulane fans -- who have been abused for decades -- don't just believe anything someone tells them.

per the researcher.."if you contract C19 there is a good chance U could have lingering effects"
per me..."then again, there is a good chance you won't"..ever since a hospital in Florida reported two men killed by bullets to the head, as C19 vicitms, I believe very little of whatever is reported, by whomever....memo to Jennifer Logue, if you are truly a "researcher" ya better be surprised of what U find, if you're not, then U ain't doin' much researchin'

Except the only one of those symptoms that you can CLEARLY attribute to Covid would be the loss of smell or taste. Right now "fatigue" and "brain fog" could just as easily be a symptom of having been locked down for the past year. Eventually you just don't feel like doing anything. And this study WAS done in Washington state, which has been more locked down than places like Florida or Texas. Hard to make a case based on study done in a single city, with such a small sample (177), when so many other factors could play a part.

Even the Big Ten had issues with its athletes having the covid related heart issues, why they postponed their season. Ton of covid issues that are proven as it attacks all the systems in the human body not just the lungs like most viruses, brain issues, research that it could speed up altheimer in adults. Studies are far reaching on the effects to the total human body. the thickening of the blood and clotting that occurs in no other virus has caused heart attacks and stroke from the clots.

Only Utah and Georgia have administered the COVID vaccine to a smaller percentage of their population than Texas. Two states.

Even so, Texas is abandoning any mask-wearing requirement. I hope my GoTula.net friends will remain vigilant and continue to mask up for a few more weeks (at least until they have received both shots). Please don't risk your lives so as to bolster the political careers of your governor and senators. Please. It's not worth it to the people you love.

That's it. That's my post. Peace out.

It all seems fool hearty and an attempt to score cheap political points at the expense of at risk folks. Here’s an idea: Start opening things up, but slowly ease the reduced capacity and mask mandate for another month or two. Everyone is so close to the finish line, just stagger the openings and capacity to hedge your bets. WaPo has 43% of the prioritized at risk population has been vaccinated. In one to two months that number will likely be double. I’m not asking for shelter in place or closing businesses, just stagger the openings and capacity.

Tulane baseball allowed attendance increase starting this weekend. 18% capacity. Anyone know if we sell these out?

Not worth the hassle. You have to buy 4 or 2 tickets at full price (no discount for loyal multi year season ticket holders and donors) then try to sell the extras to others if you’re going solo like I do. It’s too easy to stay home and watch on + for $5.99 a month. Basketball and Football tickets were free but they going to gouge baseball fans. No thanks.
I’m going tonight to Hammond because it $9 and I can buy one ticket.
