Omicron Diary: Day 705

Good morning you awesome survivors of both, the Russian invasion and the Omicron wave.

We made it so far, didn’t we? But be careful in case you’re in HK or plan to go there:

I’m dumbfounded. How come a hard lockdown looms in HK while in SA …

The latest data from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases shows that there were no COVID-19-related deaths in South Africa in the past 24 hours. There were 183 deaths recorded in the past 24 hours, the NICD said, but these were part of an ongoing national health department audit.

And also nice …

Tourism Minister, Lindiwe Sisulu, says her department is talking with the Department of Health to relax the 24-hour COVID-19 PCR test for tourists. Sisulu was speaking at the Global Brand Campaign Tourism Conference in Johannesburg, aimed at helping the sector recover from the pandemic.
She says South Africa is looking at alternatives to the PCR test.

Strange world, no? I heard theories already about Africans being more robust because they are living with so many other viruses and diseases. Dunno if that’s true. But fact is we had zero Covid-related deathes in the last 24+ hours.

But even if the number wasn’t 0, the statistics lately show clearly we don’t have a pandemic. Not even an epidemic. As you could also see from the lack of Covid-diaries since day 698, so kinda 8 days without any Covid-related news. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Until today. ๐Ÿ™‚

I now predict papa smurf will call an end to the national disaster status at the next soviet. Still, it’s not now. We must wear our masks when among other people, even outsides, and of course when we enter public buildings. But, hey, we’re doing so since almost 2 years now, so it’s become routine and nothing to be upset about.

Or are you totally opposed to mask-wearing and hate every second with that thing clogging up your snotty nose? As me how I know. Just the other day I had a giant Atchoo! in the middle of the grocery mart. With my mask on! It was awkward. ๐Ÿ˜

#But hold on guys, it’ll be over soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰
