Hopefully it's just a mild dose and there's no issues with lung capacity etc in the aftermath.
Still don't get the hysteria.
It's here. We are living with it.
My extremely unfit brother-in-law is fully vaccinated and tested positive. Felt like he had a cold for a couple of days and is fine now. As intended, vaccination significantly lessens the effect of the virus on the person who contracts it.A fit healthy double vaxxed athlete. It will be an amazing case study to see how what impact this has on Meatball on Balta.
I'm not bagging PRE hysteria, more the media etc.Not really hysteria but is of interest as an indication it may become a common occurrence next season so in an AFL context every positive case will be news.
So how will the AFL deal with it, can't see them deferring a game like they did with the VIC v NSW Shield match recently when only one player tested positive but if the player tests positive on the morning of the game what then?, no time for the rest of the squad to get tested.
I hope the AFL doesn't bring in training restrictions again, that would suck!
PS. There will be hysteria on here when Dusty & Shai test positive on the same day before GF Day
The AFL is developing a policy to minimise the disruptions caused by COVID-19 cases and to protect against teams being shut down or losing multiple players during the season, with modification of training processes being considered.
a bit of interesting info here about long COVID and the chances of experiencing the symptoms if you're vaccinated or not.Still don’t know much about long COVID folks. Based on overseas experiences it can be pretty random. Organ damage, etc. Sure the players are fine just pointing out that the virus is something to be avoided, not lived with.
My extremely fit friends in Italy got it last year (pre-vaccines) and are still suffering a year later. My double-vaccinated friends in Melbourne got it (from their unvaccinated kid) - they had 7-10 days of feeling awful but getting back to full health now. The guy up the road got it and died a few weeks later. He was unvaccinated.My extremely unfit brother-in-law is fully vaccinated and tested positive. Felt like he had a cold for a couple of days and is fine now. As intended, vaccination significantly lessens the effect of the virus on the person who contracts it.
