That’s because we don’t have hard data, all we have is guesswork, and someone has to do the guesswork. Does the virus hibernate in summer or is it something else? Or a combination of hot weather and kids not in school around Europe? Fuck knows.

Those countries have high vaccination rates. Big clue!

MSM seem to be pushing it's nearly all over.

I fear there's a long way to go yet even in the UK nevermind the rest of the world before we get anywhere near a new normal.

Genuine question if you get tested positive for the virus today how long have you likely of had it for in your system, also someone told me 2 days before you test positive and up to 5 days after you are at the most risk of spreading this virus true or false

The time from exposure to symptom onset (known as the incubation period) is thought to be two to 14 days, though symptoms typically appear within four or five days after exposure.

We know that a person with COVID-19 may be contagious 48 hours before starting to experience symptoms.

Yes, but that’s a constant. Cases were rising, then started rapidly falling whereas the vaccine levels only marginally changed over that timeframe. This would seem to suggest there are factors other than vaccine levels in play.

One factor is that the infections are self-limiting. In England, when it spiked we had infection rates that were exceeding vaccination and imo the combination of schools closing and very high antibody rates has taken the growth rate of the vrius below 1
