There’s a good article in The Atlantic about Long COVID, which suggests that the problem is sometimes in the autonomic nervous system, and can be helped quite a bit by — no kidding — breathwork. Recommended.


One strangeness of These Times is that influenza is GONE this year: zero influenza cases detected in BC, despite over 50,000 specimens undergoing clinical diagnostic testing for the virus.

Why now, given that masking is not done universally? Because R0 of the flu is only a little bit above 1, so any intervention makes R drop below 1, which means it dies out.
