There have only been 3 Covid admissions in TSA G in the last 2 days. There won’t be any significant counts until Tuesday or Wednesday. Anyway, the Norwegian has a cold (that she caught from me). She thinks she has located a picture of Mary Gold (Milton Tomato’s girlfriend).
I’ll check back later this week.

Covid Booster Shot Bolsters Protection in 5-to-11-year-olds, Pfizer and BioNTech Say (Washington Post)
A booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine increases immune defenses against the coronavirus in school-aged children, particularly against the omicron variant, the companies announced Thursday. Pfizer and BioNTech say they intend in coming days to request authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for a booster for 5-to-11-year-olds. The additional shot was given six months after children were fully vaccinated.
2. 2 New Omicron Variants are Spreading in N.Y. and Elsewhere. Here’s What We Know (NPR)
On Wednesday, health officials in New York said that two new omicron variants are spreading rapidly in the state. The variants appear to be causing a small surge in cases in central New York state, the department of health said. Known as BA.2.12 and BA.2.12.1, the variants are closely related to the BA.2 variant – a version of omicron that has caused surges across Europe and is now dominant across the U.S. Together the two new variants now comprise 90% of cases in central New York.
