Could be RSV! It looks like a cold on kids and adults but the cough is rough. They won’t typically test for it unless it’s a small child. I only know this because we’re currently going through it and would have never known had we not tested the baby. Our school age kids had a cough for weeks and it hit my husband pretty hard, too.

It’s awful right now. We just had our third baby and our kindergartener had to stay home sick with us the day we brought him home from the hospital after he was born. He caught RSV at 1.5 weeks old from her and is just now recovering at 3 weeks.

Thankfully he didn’t need a hospital stay, but I did take him to the doctor 3 times during it to check his oxygen and lungs. I’m glad they found a bed for this sweet baby. I do not recommend having a baby in the fall. 👎🏼

doechild t1_iw6xmsx wrote

Thank you! The worst part is that there are rapid RSV tests available but his, along with other kids our pediatrician tested last week, had false negatives. By the time his PCR came through with results he was well past the peak. Still gave us a big scare, especially since the news and media are saturated with warnings right now.

My wife and daughter are nurses at Lawrence General. There are 0 pediatric beds in New England right now. Last week my daughter had to find a bed at a hospital in Albany for an RSV baby.

Parents concerned about the spread of RSV, flu, and COVID are encouraged to take our survey about the ongoing pandemic, which is now overlapping with the spread of other respiratory diseases after virtually all mitigations have been dropped across the US. The crisis inside pediatric hospitals is not unique to New England, but is happening across the country.

The survey is being conducted by the Educators Rank-and-File Safety Committee, a group of educators, parents and school workers who have organized against the bipartisan policy of "let it rip" in response to COVID-19.

I can tell you from first hand experience working in hospitals that this is true. Younger and older (mostly people without children at home) healthcare workers can make 3-5k a week as a traveling nurse or tech while people who are working for the hospital makes 700-1200 a week. Traveling employees also do a great job planning for vacations. They can just sign a contract saying…nah! Regular employees see management denies us left and right now.

Turns out the vaccine skeptics were actually right. The virus mutated so fast that the vaccines almost useless for the general population right now. But is that really shocking with how quickly they were developed?

Not disputing that they may have some limited positive effects in some groups as to fighting the virus, but doesn't seem to do jack shit for transmission at this point.

Now that the hospitals have a labor shortage I'm sure the hospitals are regretting succumbing to the church of covid braintrust.


thekuroikenshi t1_iw3726h wrote

You are making huge leaps in logic between (a) virus mutation, (b) transmission among the populace, and (c) "quick" development of the vaccine.

(a) That SARS-CoV-2 mutates quickly makes it that much harder to develop vaccines against it. Unless we find other structures on the virus that are less prone to mutation and we can attack those, it will be an uphill battle no matter what. You only have to look at the flu and the flu vaccine to see how much work have left to do.

(b) It's not much of a stretch to say that vaccines helped to reduce general populace transmission. Vaccinated > immune system clamps down on COVID viral load earlier > less viral particles spread around. The problem is that SARS-CoV-2 can infect at a relatively low threshold, it looks like.

(c) mRNA vaccines have been in development for several decades now: We had the mRNA vaccine a few weeks after the pandemic swept the world. This is hindsight though, after clinical trials involving over 46,000 people all over the world indicated the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. You don't know this until you put in the work.


>Now that the hospitals have a labor shortage I'm sure the hospitals are regretting succumbing to the church of covid braintrust.

If you think labor shortages have nothing to do with the crush of COVID patients they've had to deal with during this pandemic and now the surge of RSV, you are naive.


Beautiful_Repeat_718 t1_iw46fow wrote

Let's also not exclude the fact that the mass exodus of adequate medical staff was also partially due in part to inadequate working conditions, long hours and piss-poor treatment for shit pay, as well as the possibility that many contracted the virus and died as a result of trying to deal with the overwhelming number of patients being admitted and treated for Covid.


foodandart t1_iw4f6xb wrote

Ain't that the truth. I work with a woman, who went to work in healthcare and spent a ton of money for training, and of course, lots of time and lo, she was over and done with it because of the shit pay, crap supervisors and even more miserable hours.

When a service sector job offers better wages and scheduling, Houston, the Medical Industry's got a problem...


Beautiful_Repeat_718 t1_iw6f7rl wrote

Yeah, my sister in law was in a nursing program when Covid made it's way here. They fast tracked her education and basically said she would get her certification by working through the pandemic. A year and a half later, she was cleaning houses because it was more money and less stress.


petergriffin999 t1_iw38byy wrote

The effect on transmission is zero, and the duration of transmissibility as it relates to peak viral load still had no impact on the case studies.

Check the lancet journal of medicine report from last October.

The data shows that for those at risk, it can help prevent more serious side effects. But that's it.

It has no measurable beneficial effect on either acquiring or transmitting the virus, in comparison to someone that is unvaccinated.

The data also shows now that the side effects re: heart problems, is due to the vaccine, not COVID-19. That doesn't mean it's evil or a plot or that the benefits might not outweigh the heart risk, for people who are at risk from severe problems due to COVID-19.

But as far as the people who said that it's a personal decision re: risk / reward, they were absolutely correct. Everyone who criticized them as "plague rats" were wrong.


foodandart t1_iw4g6ws wrote

> Everyone who criticized them as "plague rats" were wrong.

Oh, I think there's a ton of unvaccinated people that got struck with Covid that are left permanently crippled with heart, lung, kidney and liver issues that might beg to differ, never mind the dead ones..

Pretty much every person I know that has been vaccinated and caught Covid, has had at worst a few days of minor cold-like symptoms.

The only relatives I have that have died from this? Unvaccinated.


petergriffin999 t1_iw4siy9 wrote

You don't know what the term "plague rats" means.

Like I said in my post, it can help people who are at risk

But the term "plague rats" means "plague spreaders". Vaccinated or not vaccinated, it makes no difference regarding the spread.


Darwins_Dog t1_iw72hr2 wrote

Paper after paper has found that a COVID infection carries a much higher risk of cardiovascular problems than the vaccine. You are straight up wrong there.

Vaccine effects on transmission haven't really been studied because of ethics. Don't mistake lack of any evidence for evidence against. There are a few studies out there that have found that it does reduce transmission. It would be really weird if vaccines reduced infection severity and duration without affecting transmission. All of those are linked to viral loads so reducing one will help the others.


petergriffin999 t1_iw7g8sb wrote

Patently untrue. The study I'm referring to showed of > 1000 households where 1 person had COVID (half vaxxed, half not) what was the effect on other family members that shared the household, and visitors, where there was also a good mix of vaxxed and not vaxxed.

Some acquired the virus, some didn't. But even those results were evenly distributed among vaxxed and non vaxxed.


Darwins_Dog t1_iw7rpi3 wrote

What's untrue exactly? Here's a review of more than one study that found reduced infection and transmission potential. The results aren't as clear cut as those for preventing severe infection because it's much more difficult to study transmission (ethically and logistically) in a robust method.

Also, when I said it would be really weird for a vaccine to reduce disease severity and not transmission potential, I mean that there's no known mechanism by which that can happen. A vaccine can't reduce only the virus particles that stay in the body and skip the ones destined to be expelled. The immune system doesn't work that way.


thekuroikenshi t1_iw9vrwo wrote

The language you're using - "patently untrue" - is really strong for conclusions drawn from scientific study. Any good scientist couches their terms carefully for the very reason that because it's so damn ridiculously hard to prove causal relationships.

We were both sick the same amount of time with the same symptoms lol.


petergriffin999 t1_iw7ft7e wrote

Yep. Supposedly there is a benefit (to the vaccine) in terms of how hard it hits you, I'm seen conflicting studies on that so at this point I'm just giving it the benefit of the doubt as far as that goes.

But in terms of whether or not you acquire the virus, OR transmit it: vaccine has zero or negligible impact.

I did not, “limited positive effects” does not translate to “can prevent you from dying hooked up to a breathing tube.” The vaccine is an incredibly powerful tool to preserve human life. Because of that, I am not afraid or worried about COVID, but I will be again if people shirk the vaccine which causes hospitals to clog up and critical care is denied to those that have illnesses without an easy to take vaccine.

I'm talking about the vaccines performance now. Not a year ago or whenever in the past.

People are so dogmatic about vaccines as soon as they see the word their reptilian brain just goes haywire. It's okay to admit its a complex issue and the vaccines are not that great in November 2022 since the predominant strains in circulation have heavily mutated.


Darwins_Dog t1_iw7wbef wrote

It includes a lot of links to make it look like they refer to actual research, but very little reference to actual research. Of the 10 links in the article, 5 are to other articles written by Time, 2 are to data about the prevalence of omicron variants, 1 is the GSAID homepage, and 1 is a treatment guideline update for monoclonal antibody treatment. Also at least 3 of the linked organizations (CDC, NIH, and GSAID) recommend vaccines and boosters for anyone eligible.

So 1 of 10 references is an actual (preprint) article about reduced vaccine efficacy. It also shows (figure 1b, c, d) that vaccination boosters provide a substantial increase in titers of neutralizing antibodies to all variants examined.

The point of this article is for people to read it while "researching" vaccine information and share it to bolster an argument. It contains almost no relevant information and what it has it heavily editorialized. I guess I can't fault them too much because it worked on you 100%.


Darwins_Dog t1_iw344qj wrote

The vast majority of medical professionals that were fired or left over COVID vaccines were receptionists and file clerks and the like. Almost no one with medical education left the field because of vaccine requirements. There was a nursing shortage before the pandemic, and many more left due to burnout. Seeing people die from a preventable disease because they wouldn't get a vaccine will do that.


Tai9ch t1_iw38bmu wrote

Do you have some basis for that claim, or are you simply arbitrarily asserting something that would be true if your worldview is correct?


Darwins_Dog t1_iw3btaf wrote

I read articles about people leaving and of the ones that broke down the numbers, most people quitting were not nurses. Most articles omit the breakdown and try to find at least one nurse to play to people with your bias, but it's still usually <1% of total staff that choose to leave. Almost no one with medical education chose to leave because of COVID vaccine mandates. This is true if only because almost no one chose to leave healthcare over it.

Most hospitals expect all staff to be up to date on vaccinations and that now includes COVID. Vaccine requirements at hospitals are completely normal and good.


foodandart t1_iw4hby0 wrote

It's not even just beds, but "staffed beds". Many hospitals have the rooms/beds for pediatric patients but lack the staff to operate them.
