    There is probably an alternate universe where vacuum rhymes with orange.

    It's funny because in that alternate universe, "vacuum" is the word they use for "vaccine".

    Had an actress friend of mine just come down with COVID-19. She was in a high risk group after having some health issues related to medications she was taking. We were in MASTERCLASS (the show) together, and I also accompanied a show she directed.

    She had been VERY careful about guarding her health during the pandemic. Very. But somehow she contracted it anyway, ended up in the hospital, and put her on hospice care, meaning they didn't expect her to live. She's home now, but I'm not sure how she's doing NOW.

    Her friend passed along the information on the 23rd:

    Hello theatre and other friends.

    I just wanted to update everyone about ***** ***********. I just talked to John ******, and he has given me a fairly complete rundown.

    So - what I didn’t feel was my place to say earlier, but have now been given the go ahead, is that ***** contracted Covid. I have NO IDEA HOW, because I know she was trying to be very careful. She was in the hospital for a week, and they brought her home on Friday the 13th. Her condition had basically been going up and down, and she was put on hospice care on Tuesday. John has been with staying with her the entire time. She has been receiving treatments which seem to be helping, but as I said, it seems to be going one step forward, two steps back, etc. He DID say that her oxygen levels in the last couple of days were in the 90s, which is GREAT and he did just give me the impression right now that she seems to be better today. She even asked for food, which is news that has made me feel better than I’ve felt all week.

    I continue to have hope and once again ask the prayer warriors and energy healers to send whatever type of energy you believe in. John asked if you would please refrain from texting him. He has been taking care of her 24/7 like the hero that he is, but he gets overwhelmed. He asked me to be the ... community liaison? ... as it were, and because I love *****, I said “Of Course!”.

    He says that ***** is starting to look at her phone a little, so if you want to continue leaving loving messages, photos or good times, etc, on her page - something that won’t set her phone off - that would be great. If you want to message me, that’s fine - go ahead and blow up my phone - I’ll tell you all the information I have been given permission to share (which is basically what I’ve told you right now).

    And, as all of you, I continue to hope and believe that our dear ***** will get better. And as for all of you ... Everyone stay safe. Everyone stay healthy. XOXO

    Tnx. Its not that I really know those people, they are acquaintances at best and people from tv at worst but its not that its the atmosphere of fear, that englufs me like a thick winter fog...The fog of distrusting people and keeping away...Like everyone I see carries a question mark above his head...

    The advice I heard, early on, from Anthony Fauci and others still holds true today.

    Assume everyone you encounter is infected, unless you know otherwise. Assume you yourself are infected, and just not showing symptoms yet. Wear a mask in public, socially distance, wash your hands, be careful touching public things other people touch like door handles and credit card readers. The virus is everywhere. It's not magical, it can't jump through barriers or get you in your sleep -- but out in public, yes, take reasonable precautions.

    Avoid spreading the strange nonsense that COVID is being exaggerated, is a creation of "enemies", that masks are unimportant and true patriotism is shown by spurning masks (I'll bet Jefferson and Franklin would have worn masks, as they were friends of science and enlightenment). Our healthcare system and its workers are under siege. Real Americans, real patriots do their best to help their fellow citizens and their country. Some need to sit down, get their priorities straight, and think.

    Sounds like the red menace of the 1960s to me; be terribly afraid. That way your government can keep you under control. Your comments might even be from the script of "The Blob". A perfect metaphor for our times, though originally made about the 'red' menace of the 1950s during the Cold War.

    Stop being fearful and control your own health with sensible eating, exercise and lifestyle choices.

    Amazing! Maybe vitamins--lots of vitamins--prevents both COVID and the "hysteria" that is seizing the world's epidemiologists. There must be something in the water in Australia.......

    You can get your own copy of "The Blob" through Amazon. It might be insightful but, on the other hand, maybe not.

    I've not seen one single hysterical epidemiologist - only the political variety (for obvious reasons of command and control).

    And I certainly hope this is going to stop old people from dying; that's just not on!! A former French President died yesterday from Covid-19. At the age of 94. I don't call that civilized.

    I guess I'm missing something. What is this connection you see between A MASK MANDATE and the government "controlling" you? Wouldn't "the government" want to keep businesses open and people circulating and spending money? How is shutting down the economy for public health reasons of benefit to the government?

    You make it sound so simple. 'Splain it to me.

    It's no good; you need your fear and hysteria to justify the government's right to keep you under house arrest. They do this instead of the more effective contact tracing. Just keep everybody at home - never mind the suicides and other mental health issues. Old people are dying!! What's the world coming to?
