It’s times like this when a having a minority card in your back pocket puts ya at the head of the line.

Biden administration guidance prioritizes race in administering COVID drugs

“Guidance issued by the Biden administration states certain individuals may be considered "high risk" and more quickly qualify for monoclonal antibodies and oral antivirals used to treat COVID-19 based on their "race or ethnicity."

In a fact sheet issued for healthcare providers by the Food and Drug Administration, the federal agency approved emergency use authorizations of sotrovimab – a monoclonal antibody proven to be effective against the Omicron variant – only to patients considered "high risk."”

The silver lining is the monoclonal antibodies are slowly being let out of jail and allowed back into polite society. What the CDC and our scientific gurus are saying now would have got them blacklisted, fired, and run out of the lab on a rail IF they said what they are saying now six months ago.

Our son-in-law was tested last Tuesday (1/4) and was told he'd have the results in 2 or 3 days. As of today he had heard nothing and when calling the toll free number was instructed to press 2 if he hadn't been notified of the results. The line went dead. He then e-mailed for further info but isn't hopeful of anything soon. Free govt testing - you get what you pay for.
Our grand-kiddies are fine, our daughter had mild symptoms and our son-in-law felt as if he had a bad cold. I had what felt like a mild flu with a mild cold and was done with it in about 8 days. The wife suffered worse and felt ill for about 10 days.
Son and daughter-in-law (both vaxxed) were mildly sick (tested positive for covid) as well. Life goes on.

Quasi on-topic.

A not-bad set of essays that I just ran into.

The vaccine efficacy stats from the UK in several of the columns are interesting.

Masks. Cloth Masks. Didn’t we already know this when we debated masks here? My, how time flies.

‘CDC Finally Admits Cloth Masks Were Always Political Theater’

Senator Rand Paul poses a rhetorical question.

“Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?”

"Masks. Cloth Masks. Didn’t we already know this when we debated masks here? My, how time flies."

I would suggest using netting. It's much easier to breathe through.

Thinking about masks, testing kits, other-the-counter remedies, etc. Given that COVID has had such a huge effect on people and the economy, you'd think that we'd be buried in government-made N95's, zinc pills, decent test kits. One day delivery from Amazon for a low low (or no) price.

Instead, pretty much crickets.

My general impression is that one of two things are true.

1) There's nothing to be done.
2) Public health officials have no clue what they are doing.

probably it's both.

“But hospitalization was 50% lower and risk of death 75% lower among those with natural immunity "independent of age, sex, comorbidities, and vaccine type," the study found.”

The scandalous news started like this:

“It's folly to try to get inside anyone else's head, I know, but I just can't shake this.

Does Justice Gorsuch revel in everyone now knowing that he's keeping her from being able to come to work? Or is he embarrassed? I mean, how do you live with yourself?”
