So now my grandson and his unvaccinated father have both tested positive. Isolating at his fathers home (2 other adults and three other children. All positive) and Logan will miss the first few days of school next week. I wonder if the father will still think it is fake after this?

Blimey that household has got almost as many positive CV cases as the whole of New Zealand!

Spoke to Logan tonight and he seems pretty good so hopefully it is as bad as he will get. Laughing and being a dork on the phone with his mum so can't be all that unwell.

Is it just me or is this missing a piece of information?

How many of these people would have been admitted to hospital if they had NOT caught Covid? i.e. Covid was a contributing factor to cause a hospitalisation.

Statistics.

The difference is that if there was no covid some of them would have been admitted, however there wouldn't have been a surge in hospitalisations without covid. What caused the surge in hospitalisations if it wasn't covid, and why did it tie up exactly with the surge in cases from omicron ? If hospitalisations had not risen then your point would be completely correct.

For now! NZ will have a COVID wave at some point - there is no way around it

You'll probably need to bring a fresh pcr test when arriving. Likewise if one needs to visit a nursing home and at hospitals.

May I ask what koncert? (I'll try to make some wheelspin outside, then ;)

Kind regards,

Sweating it out as we're scheduled to see the Rocket Man himself on Sunday (rescheduled from 2020) though announced earlier this week he tested positive and canceled two shows this week. Our show and one before are not yet canceled, so hopefully he was positive last week and out of quarantine soon! 🤞

Well in case you have not heard yet, there is now a variant from Omicron. It is more contagious than Omicron, but less severe in symptoms. Apparently, RAT tests cannot pick it up. It is spreading across Europe and is now in Australia. How it got here? No idea.

My daughter, who works in a Covid clinic just told us that there is also another variant coming out of China by the looks of things. No other details and I can't find anything online so not sure where Alicia got the info from.

This is going to go on for a long time.

Omicron BA2 has been around for a while (late December) and is thought to be slightly more contagious that BA1. Lateral flow tests will detect both strains, but because it doesn't have the S gene deletion it is harder to distinguish from delta on the PCR test compared to BA1. It will however still give a +ve PCR. It is not considered more virulent from data from Denmark where it is considerably more prevalent (40% of cases). Because of the rapid spread of BA1 in the UK it is very unlikely that BA2 will be a problem.

There will be new variants on a daily basis, but it will take some monster mutation to overwhelm omicron.

Danny’s girlfriend tested positive this Thursday. Her whole family have now tested positive. They have all been fully vaccinated since her parents have both had cancer.

Her driving test was scheduled for Monday - and even though when driving instructors cancel you get a new appointment - she’s now lost her slot and money since they won’t rearrange. You’ve gotta love the establishment and it’s foibles.

Surely in these circumstances, the money is either refundable or there for when she can rebook?

I'b be asking some questions.

You would think so @ramjet but sadly that’s not how it works - the whole driving test fiasco in the uk over covid has been a joke. I’m sure @mayevora would elaborate.

Barry she shouldn’t lose her Test fee. Even if she telephoned the Test Centre 1 hour before her Practicle Test was due to happen to inform them of positive Covid Test she will get a refund. (Pre Covid it was 6 days notice not to lose your test fee) Remember the supervising Examiners would rather get a late cancellation than risk catching it and them then going off sick effecting 100’s of subsequent tests. I’ve had a few and they get refunded.

What they won’t do is give her another short notice test time/date. Standard waiting lists Nationally right now extend towards the end of May at most test centres. There is a great App called Testi (£10 from memory) that will notify her of any short cancellations that become available and there will be loads. If she can’t get another test date within 2 weeks of downloading the App I’d be surprised.

Ahh thanks - but they use “driving test now” and that allows auto booking so it does all the rescheduling for you. Think it’s £15. Someone somewhere is making a fortune out of these apps.

she cancelled due to sickness on the portal - so sounds like she needs to contact them and explain the covid issue.

She caught it before the second vaccination so it was too late for the vaccine to help. Even though omicron has a slightly shorter incubation than delta, she probably caught it on Wednesday / Thursday last week

Snap!

Our daughter tested positive this morning but this one lives 250miles away in S. Wales so little chance of passing it on to us😉

Your point re schools rings true here though. She has 2 sons at school and is a self employed child minder so it was probably only a matter of time before the inevitable🤔
