#SARSCoV2: Yes, we all hope the topic becomes irrelevant soon

But until then, it's important to address it with appropriate protective measures. This page collects some useful info. The criteria for my collection are subjective. I owe so many reliable experts in my personal network. Stay well and enjoy your life for many more years. 

"Corona has gotten mild"??

Reported symptoms associated with the acute phase (= when you are "actually having COVID") have gotten milder, especially since the emergence of the Omicron variant. That's why many people say COVID-19 feels like a common cold. But the effects of the disease on your body and immune system is a different issue from the symptoms we feel. That is why many experts are still very cautious, avoiding infection completely.  

For curious minds, here is a great summary of the disease's effect
on the immune system with plenty of scientific evidence.
