I hope all of my readers are remaining healthy and safe, regardless of where you live.
I thankfully continue to remain COVID-free. I am grateful for that because, to be honest, even among those I know who have “mild” symptoms, there can still be certain symptoms that linger for quite a few weeks after they first test positive. For example, I know of people who, even though they have mostly recovered from the virus, still have lingering coughs that they are so incredibly tired of. Even “mild” COVID is no fun, albeit it is nothing compared to landing in the hospital with the virus.
Where I live, cases continue to decrease, and the number per cases per 100,000 people is at its lowest level since right before the holidays. Such numbers (as well as numbers when it comes to the percentage of people testing positive) is still relatively high compared…

Germany’s expert vaccine commission, the Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO), came out on Thursday in favor of fourth COVID-19 vaccine doses — or second booster shots — for people belonging to particularly at-risk groups.

¿Vivir? Caray, qué pregunta. Vivir consiste, parece, en detener la marcha cotidiana, voltear a los lados y sonreír a la gente que se encuentra cerca y lejos, aliviar el hambre de los miserables e impedir que alguien muera por enfermedad o tristeza. ¿Vivir? En eso estamos, aunque a veces olvidemos quiénes somos y cuáles son nuestras encomiendas. ¿Vivir?
