When the world sleeps magically!
Despite taking precautions, I got infected with Omicron. My symptoms were joint pain, chills, and a scratchy throat followed by a slight sore throat –
This was only the first day! And every day my symptoms decrease a lot. I’m glad I took both of my vaccines as I believe it prevents the disease from progressing by 85 percent.
I urge everyone else to do the same if they haven’t already.
I hope and pray that this variant will mark the end of the pandemic ..
