Have you had COVID yet?

Updated: Mar 21

(Updated 7th March 2022)


COVID is ripping through New Zealand as I write. It seems that every second person, vaxxed and non-vaxxed is infected with the rest about to be. Everyone in our household has had it and now, either fully recovered, or close to it (confirmed by +ve RAT test).


 

Important:


The following is not medical advice, I'm merely sharing with others what I do personally to keep one step ahead of the bugs!


 

RAT
Positive RAT test: two solid lines

So, what did we experience?


  • The youngest of our household appeared to have the mildest symptoms, whereas the oldest; myself, with a proviso, had the worst symptoms (refer to my comments about caffeine withdrawal below).

  • Symptoms began as an upper respiratory tract infection: stuffy nose, sore throat, tired and aching joints and muscles.

  • After about two days it had progressed to the lower respiratory tract, deep cough, headache, very sore throat, aching body and fatigue: Classic influenza symptoms.

  • Symptoms began to decline 4-5 days after the first symptoms and back into action by the 5th to 7th day with some residual fatigue and a cough.

I took the opportunity of being ill, not working or exercising, to detox from caffeine which I was seriously locked into. I'd been meaning to kick it in the head and this was the opportunity. But, boy, did I suffer: migraines galore and extreme fatigue and weakness! It was pretty close to my limits with COVID on top of it but I'm through to the other side. Whoopee! I'm going to write this up later. I'm convinced I'm one of those people who should never go anywhere near caffeine. My mother was one of these people who never had a caffeine drink. Perhaps there is a family sensitivity that I inherited from her? I should have listened to her.


What we did in response:



A few observations


  • For most people I have talked to who have had COVID, I think it is fair to say, for most people symptoms are similar to a mild or moderate flu; for many their symptoms are so mild they wonder if they have had it, for others, like myself, it was more obvious and put me in bed for a few days.

  • Nobody has told me they think the infection warranted closing down the country, spending billions and restricting individual freedoms in response.

  • Vaccinated people are catching COVID, and I don't see any evidence that they are in any way suffering fewer symptoms than the unvaccinated. This further confirms the opinion that the vaccines are a waste of money while causing immense harm that dwarfs any harms from the bug itself.

  • One of the keys to dealing with COVID is to keep the viral load as low as possible and isolated to the upper respiratory tract: Mask wearing encourages deep mouth-breathing which is exactly what is not wanted.


Protecting our health system


We are told now that the pandemic response is all about preventing our failing health system from collapsing. The first point to make is New Zealand now has two health systems: the Public Health System which is underfunded and understaffed: Then there is the Private Health System which is funded by insurance premiums by those who can afford it. The politicians and the bureaucrats who are making decisions about health policy, including funding are unlikely to be the ones who are reliant on the Public Health System for their healthcare.


The Government had two years to prepare for this by investing in the public health system, but they did not: Instead, they continued to underfund it and fire any health professional who failed to comply with their mandates.


When we got COVID:


None of us rushed off to the hospital, doctor, or the testing centre, where we might end up infecting weak and vulnerable people: This was the time to stay at home and rest. It was the time to cast aside the hype and relax: After all, it is a mild flu for most people. We followed the guidelines in this article and looked after ourselves for several days.


If you think you have COVID and have any doubts about what is happening, including your safety, ring your doctor and heed their advice.



What about Natural Immunity?


We can assume that most New Zealanders will soon have natural immunity. The quicker this happens the sooner we can forget this virus and get back to normal life. We will have achieved herd immunity, something the vaccine has failed to give us. While herd immunity is being achieved we need to protect the vulnerable, while encouraging the young and the healthy to get the infection naturally. In so doing, we eventually provide protection to the vulnerable who can then resume life as normal without fear of infection.


Natural immunity, unlike the ineffective vaccine, means we have immunity to the COVID variant that infected us, plus resistance to any variants that may come along, and this immunity will last for many years. We will not transmit the virus to others: Instead, we protect the people around us.



The End is Nigh!


Therefore, people who have had the infection do not need to wear masks anymore, or socially distance themselves from other people. Actually, all of the mandates should be scrapped right now, including mask-wearing, while encouraging the vulnerable to continue to isolate and wear masks (M95+ ones), while we quickly achieve herd immunity.


I'll finish on this positive note; after all, this is such a simple solution for how we escape the prison our leaders have created for us. If anyone can pick holes in this most simple of plans, please do so by posting in the comments below this article, thank you!


Let's do this together!

Just curious why you didn't take zinc with your quercetin? Glad to hear you got through it ok. Looks to me omicron doesn't warrant ANY special precautions or at least, no different to what we would have done for the flu. This is all clearly shown in the data and the studies, but oddly there are a lot of people that aren't seeing this or are just not shouting it from the rooftops. If the govt cared about NZ then all mandates would have been dropped in the age of omicron. This is just confirmation to me that there is an agenda at play that does not have the best interests of NZ in mind.

It is a shocking consideration that in the common comparisons between Covid and the seasonal flu, for IFR etc, of course a massive part of the difference will be explained by "doing nothing" for Covid. How many people would die of the seasonal flu if we did nothing? We are not told with the seasonal flu, "nothing works, be terrified, if you end up struggling to breathe, call an ambulance and we'll get you put on a ventilator". If we were told this, how many more people might die, it might be worse than Covid!


Never before has there been such a manifestation of Big Pharma conspiracy to conduct all out assault on everything they can't patent; they can't get…

Philip, I have a confession: I took the opportunity to detox from caffeine which I was seriously locked into. I've been meaning to kick it in the head and this was the opportunity. But, boy, did I suffer: migraines galore and extreme fatigue and weakness! It was pretty close to my limits with COVID on top but I'm through to the other side. Whoopee! I'm going to write this up later. I'm convinced I'm one of those people who should never go anywhere near caffeine. My mother was one of these people who knew never to go near a caffeine drink. I should have listened to her.😯


And I should add, I had been working 7 days a week often…

I'm in the 5th day, Gary, and as an 84-yr-old with CLL, I can assure you, the productive coughing and debilitating fatigue are most unpleasant. I'm on everything you mentioned plus I have the luxury of daily I/VC. The rest is in the hands of the Director of this cosmic tragicomedy.

Your unofficial proof of recovery from natural infection I suggest to those who are about to do your rapid antigen test, have your camera and a copy of today's newspaper ready. That way you can take your selfie while holding up the positive test strip and the copy of the newspaper, showing today's date. This is evidence of your (eventual) recovery from natural infection. Use it respectfully and unofficially, to break down fear, and to facilitate (legal of course...) mask free gatherings and visits. Proof of strength of natural immunity:
