It is incomplete, just something reported early on.  There are more adverse reactions not considered serious as well.  I presume more data will be forthcoming as they are forced to release more of the documentation.  Honestly, all this should already be public information.  The companies are shielded from liability.  The price of that should be 100% transparency.

But then they'd lose the moral high ground they are claiming in trying to force every person on the face of the planet to be "fully vaccinated" -- a definition that's changing on a regular basis. Some countries now don't consider anyone to be fully vaccinated unless they've had a recent booster shot. The UK is now pushing for (or requiring -- don't remember which) booster shots every THREE MONTHS.

No, they aren't.  You might want to reread that article.

Oregon is looking at a "permanent" (which they also call "indefinite") mask mandate.

I'd be interested in hearing what our members in Western OR are seeing. There is very little compliance in places in Eastern OR that I frequent. Certainly not a single retail establishment, including stores from major chains, which usually fold to this stuff, has signs out, let alone employees telling people to wear masks. Mostly I go to Ontario, OR, which is likely the largest and (because of the pot shops) the most liberal Eastern OR city (unless the Bend area is considered Eastern OR).

A new paper with an interesting supposition: The Omicron mutation may have happened in someone who had both SARS covid and HCOV - a common cold - at the same time. It picked up genetic material from the cold virus, allowing it to propagate better, albeit it with milder cold-like symptoms.

The story seems to further suggest it might have happened in an individual who was HIV positive, as South Africa has the largest number of HIV positive people in the world.

The UK is looking to implement new restrictions due to Omicron.

I may have missed it, but every reputable article I have read on Omicron has emphasized how mild it is. It appears to be less worrisome than any flu, or even colds, yet many countries are treating it like the Alpha version. Most people in the world are going to end up getting covid. Of all the mutations out there, this seems to be a mild one that also (according to a couple of papers I read) will also give you effective natural antibodies to fight more dangerous mutations.

On post-covid Parosmia:

https://www.foxnews.com/health/long-covid-cases-bad-smells-tastes

The mention of the one girl and the shower was interesting to me, as shower water smells weird to me too. I didn't know more people had that symptom. In my case, it smells kinda H2S-like or Sulphur-like. Also though I can smell bacon again, it smells slightly different, as if there is a chemical-like back odor to it. Which goes for a few of both my phantom smells and "different" smells for stuff I smelled normally before. Everything that still doesn't smell right to me has some chemical secondary odor ranging from very slight to moderate.

Missed this article until just this morning. Four months out and I still have smell distortion. Mine is mostly a chemical smell now. Initially I was experiencing sewer gas smells also. Like a trap under a sink was dry.

Walking into a new room and especially pump hand soaps trigger my anosmia. The chemical smell is even detectible on my hands for awhile after washing. Walking into a new space will usually trigger a faint reaction. Food rarely triggers unusual odors when it's in front of me. Cooking going on while I'm in another room will trigger it though. I still don't have 100% normality in taste, pretty close though, I can enjoy food again.

There are a handful of other long covid symptoms I'm experiencing as well. Generally they manifest themselves if I push too hard on the physical exercise.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

That chemical smell that so many of us end up with is very interesting to me. I guess I would have thought distortions would be more "natural" smells.

You mention hand soaps, does it do it with other soaps like Lava?  Just wondering if it is the added perfumes and stuff put in hand soaps that trigger it.

Only pump hand soaps. Dish soap or bar soap I haven't noticed anything. Though I do use unscented Dove with no perfumes so I cannot speak to all bar soaps.

I have heard the supposition that some of the smell distortion comes from certain detectors coming back online before others. This causes you to smell only the component of the full smell which is supported by those detectors. This isolation of certain single component smells you have learned to associate with chemicals instead of natural things which tend to be a combination of chemicals.

Didn't the judge make them release 500 pages a month?  It will still take that long for all of it to be released, but now they can piecemeal it out.

The FDA should release all of the data at once.  They are free from prosecution and even if the data shows the vaccines are dangerous, the FDA can blame Trump since he was the president at the time.

If the government wants to hold back the design for their death ray for 75 years, I get classified stuff. Holding back ANYTHING about stuff they are telling people to put in their bodies is criminal. That should all be available to everyone, immediately.
