Omicron is not already in Kuwait? Kind of amazing.

Not very many flights arriving from Europe at the moment. Kuwait restricted their airport capacity a while ago. Nothing in Kuwait so far.

Also ALL arriving passengers are in 10 day quarantine until they get a negative PCR result in Kuwait.

Compulsory app where someone calls you every day of the quarantine where you have to upload a selfie and you better hope your GPS location matches your home location or it's a massive fine.

I'm still reeling from the new self-quarantine guideline from the CDC for asymptomatic cases: 5 days and no need to test again before re-entering society. Looks like they are more worried about the economy than about the pandemic.

On a lighter note, I saw this gem of a comment at Slate.com: "The CDC says it's not omicron unless it comes from the Omicrônne region of France, otherwise it's just sparkling covid."

My daughter’s hospital is at capacity and the ER average wait is 48 hours. The hospital staff are being told to come in sick if able and take all available precautions. So yeah, it’s go time for emergency responders at the moment. Nurses are way overbooked.

This has been predicted. With any luck we’ll pass through it quickly.

My wife tested positive so that's cool. She's been lethargic and headachey the past week or so, nothing bad. Im asymptomatic thus far, fingers crossed.

In the past 2 years we could have built hospitals for beds, graduated covid-specific nurses, worked out home-testing, and a bunch of other good shit but we didn't. For-profit healthcare system on verge of collapse and we've only had 50M COVID cases so far out of 330M population. I've got a bad feeling about this.

Yeah, and my Ma is pressuring me to drive my family to Virginia and get together with my sisters' families. About 20 people. I sometimes think I'm the only person still taking this seriously.

In the early days, the Army Corps of Engineers set up a field hospital near here in expectation of overwhelming need. They ended up not using it (thank goodness) and had to take it down as winter approached because the hospital was not designed to hold up under snow.
I can’t but help imagine how that would have went if there were loads of patients there.

My contractor was supposed to finish up the carpentry work and painting in my kitchen today. Instead we are waiting for his Covid test results.

I know - first world problems. And of course, I am concerned for him and his family. But this "3-week project" has stretched into a 10-week+ project, in part due to a two week Covid delay in the middle that bumped the project timeline into the holidays, which created addition delays. Add to that a few supply line issues causing delays in getting a couple of key bits, and it looks like the kitchen will be functional, but not completely finished until February, or possibly even this Spring.

I know I am whining, but it is easier to focus on being annoyed at delays, than to worry that we all might have been exposed yesterday and may already be sick and not know it.

Twice as many masked people at the gym last night, so about 10% instead of 5%. Two of them (a couple) were even double-masking. On the other hand, there were also a couple of unmasked old guys who were coughing a lot. I might need to stop going to the gym for a while.
