I didn't get a test because I honestly didn't think I had covid. My symptoms include congestion so I figured it's probably an odd summer cold. But now I hear that symptoms differ for each variant and they can also change after you are vaccinated. A moving target. Yay.

The vaccine will drastically reduce the chances that you will die from a COVID infection.
In that case my vaccine invitation must have been a mistake, I am young and healthy and therefore have virtually no chance to die of CoViD-19. Getting the vaccine is more dangerous to me than getting CoViD-19 would be.

The test for CoViD-19 is simple: if you think that you have it then you have it!

On the news this morning was a warning about MIS-C. Apparently it's old news though, but they felt the need to remind people, since a local just had her kid die from it.

MIS-C: Because one SARS-CoV-2 disease wasn't enough.

I always wonder how they plan these things in Heaven too.

God: Michael, we have a problem.
Michael: Yes my Lord?
God: The children aren't really catching COVID-19. I need you to invent a SARS-CoV-2 disease specifically for them, and have it on my desk by Thursday.
Michael: (Oh, I'll leave something on your desk, all right. And it'll be infectious too, you rotten motherf-)
God: I can hear that, you know.

Hypochondria can be fatal.
CoViD-19 has virtually no chance to be fatal unless you are very old or very sick with something else. If you are not then it is just a harsh flu. In that case, stay home and wait it out. Also, do not watch the news. CoViD-19 gets a lot less scary when you do not watch the news.

Yeah.. I'm not worried about getting sick at all and know my chances of death aren't improved materially.

I am worried though about people being put through massive discomfort and punished financially by eg quarantine, and of course the horrific effects of scaremongering.

France still proves it's a dictatorship with mandatory "vaccines" for healthcare workers, otherwise they won't get paid starting September 15th:

Mandatory "vaccine" pass to get access to cafes, restaurants, trains, culture. Starting July 21th:

Something very, very dirty is happening here.
They will probably need to cover up that with a big event tomorrow because I doubt the people will accept that.

That doesn't bother me so much. An incredible amount of effort was required to combat this disease, so it's not surprising it's cost an awful amount. What's more concerning to me was the way the government went about paying for this stuff, as documented in this programme:

Edit: @Phylra's post, if that wasn't clear.

My sense of smell was a little screwed up just now, but I remembered that isn't that common with Delta, so I guess I'm safe. There's probably just something rotten in my apartment somewhere. :p

Edit: My Azelastine can cause bad smell too.

There are already a few mandatory vaccines for healthcare workers (and some other workers as well) in France. There are also some mandatory vaccines for children.
The vaccine pass however is a legal clusterfuck: the QR code you're supposed to show contains personal medical data, which isn't something bartenders should have access to.

I'm more concerned about how they will resolve the debt in the coming years. (Assuming the "emergency" situation ends)

I think there's too much focus on the vaccines overall. They're going to become irrelevant in a few years when the virus starts evolving faster than they do.

We need an even more novel solution. On its current course, COVID-19 is going to become something we just live with, like influenza, except ten times deadlier. And it won't be the last thing like that either.
