I read a online this morning that the spikes in Covid-19 infections, especially the delta variant, in unvaccinated and even in vaccinated people has caused some health experts to say it's time to go back to masks.
The day before yesterday, I played chess in a public library with a black pastor friend, who and his wife had Covid-19 in January of this year, 2021. He had the rougher case and was hospitalized and then recovered and seemed okay to me. They both then received the 2 Pfizer vaccinations. He worries about the delta variant. As do I.
After the last game yesterday, he said I need to start wearing a mask. The library recommends but does not require masks. The library staff wear masks. I said I wasn't going to wear a mask in the library. We sit here off to ourselves. I don't wear masks except in crowded places, like grocery stores. I had the Pfizer shots, I take nutritional supplements that make me unfriendly to Covid-19. He had Covid-19 and has antibodies. He had the Pfizer shots. He isn't at much risk.
Later, I asked God to tell me if I had messed up. The pastor is the only person I play chess with regularly, and we play often. He is a big part of my social life. I don't feel well after wearing a mask for a while, perhaps too much carbon dioxide? I don't know if masks protect me much from catching Covid-19, but I think masks help me not give it to other people. I know being vaccinated is no guarantee against catching Covid-19.
I heard "love" in a dream last night? I heard "wholesome" in another dream. Was that God's answer? Was what follows also God's answer?
I belong to a duplicate bridge club that requires all its members to be fully vaccinated and show proof of it before being allowed to play at the clubhouse. Masks are not required. Very few players wear masks. Members are told not to come if they have sniffles, cough, sore throat, fever, etc. If they come with such, they are told to leave. They and unvaccinated members can play in online club games.
A member I sometimes play with has a teenage granddaughter, who lives in his home. She recently caught Covid-19 at summer camp. Two camp counselors, 18-19 years old, unknowingly had Covid-19 and spread it to the campers. The camp was closed by its owners for the entire season. The granddaughter has a rapid heartbeat condition and was given antibody treatment.
Her grandfather had had both Moderna shots and self-quarantined. He told me this morning that he tested negative, but will continue to self-quarantine to insure he does not infect other people. He will not attend church in person, but virtually. He begged off playing with me at the clubhouse this afternoon, but we might play in an online club game about the same time.
Was that God's answer to whether I should wear a mask when I play chess with my pastor friend?
I asked my bridge friend if he knew if the camp required its staff to be vaccinated? He said he didn't know. I said I think a business can require its employees to be vaccinated, if they wish to come to work in person, as opposed to virtually. He said he wasn't sure a business can require that. I said I think any business can require it, but it will take a long string of judges to decide it. Meanwhile, the camp closed for the entire summer season because it did not require its staff to be vaccinated. That that kinda crazy, and kinda funny, if you like gallows humor. He agreed.
I said I had read online this morning a FOX News story that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to answer a reporter's question of how many breakthrough infections (vaccinated people) there were in White House staff, and Psaki said staff are not required to be vaccinated.
I said President Biden is pushing hard for everyone to be vaccinated, but he cannot require vaccination to be on his White House staff? That's bizarre, crazy. My friend agreed.
I said the reporter cited "transparency" to Psaki, trying to get her to tell how many vaccinated White House staff had caught Covid-19, and Psaki didn't budge.
That's infuriating. It's B.S. Psaki and President Biden have made a lot of noise about having a transparent administration. I now question why I voted for him.
The FOX report is at the bottom of this blog post.
I told my friend how he can use nutritional supplements to cause his body to be unfriendly to Covid-19 and its variants, and I typed it up and sent it to him in an email:
All of this can be gotten online.
daily prevention regimen:25 mg zinc, 500 mg quercetin, 500 mg C, 2000 iu D3quercetin carries zinc into body cells, where zinc inhibits coronavirus replication. C helps quercetin transport zinc into cells, and C fights infections and strengthens the immune system. It is known that people taking D3 have less trouble if they catch Covid-19.If you start showing symptoms or test positive, take for 5 days:220 mg zinc, 2000 mg quercetin, 2000 mg C, 800 iu D3Then return to regular regimenIf you test positive and can get antibody treatment, do that as well.I have long been susceptible to colds, throat, sinus and respiratory infections and pneumonia, and have had none of that since starting the daily regimen June 2020
I told him that hydroxychloroquine, which is derived from quinine, which is derived from the bark of a tree, also transports zinc into body cells, but it's not approved for Covid-19.
I said President Trump had the hydroxychloroquine-zinc cure, took it even, but didn't make it generally available after the great commotion witch hunts that hydroxychloroquine killed people. But there had not been any great commotion witch hunts over people taking hydroxychloroquine for decades for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. But then, how could Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson make billion$$$, if Trump made hydroxychloroquine and zinc freely available?
My friend said he had taken hydroxychloroquine before, during and after visits to malaria areas, without any problems. He asked if doctors prescribe it for Covid-19? I said some doctors prescribe hydroxychlor0quine off label, pretending it's for something else. But I wouldn't take hydroxychloroquine like a supplement. It's a pharmaceutical drug, it does have side effects, and quercetin is made from plants and is okay to take daily, if you don't over do it.
Psaki refuses to give number of breakthrough WH Covid cases: 'Why do you need that information?'
Psaki has promised to bring transparency back into the briefing room
