While I realize that anecdote is not evidence, I just spoke this week to a healthy, physically fit, mid- 20s Sqn member who was just back at work after contracting the Brazilian variant COVID 19. While he was not hospitalized, he related that when he was actively ill, it was the worst three days of his life- he did not care if he lived or died.First of all, really good post.
I'm in the same age group as you - I think a lot of us are aware that the risks to ourselves are quite small, even if we contract the virus. That said, I am aware of the greater risk associated with passing it on to older / higher-risk loved ones.
While the article states that the associated disease is no more severe, the fact that the virus is more easily transmissible and is found in a greater number of younger people is concerning.
if I can avoid catching this- I will.
