So my anti-vaxxer cousin in Canada finally came down with covid. I knew it was only a matter of time. She refused to get vaccinated because she has "auto-immune" issues (she's a drama queen and while she does have some health issues she is fully ensconced in the naturopathy bullshit, etc.) and believed she'd have a serious adverse reaction to the vaccine. She told me her friend died from the vaccine - this story has changed over the months since her friend died.
She is a firm supporter of the Freedumb trucker caravan in Canada.
I still have a fb account but don't use it regularly. I heard that my good friend's mom had passed away yesterday so I logged in today to leave a message of condolence on her page and caught sight of my niece's post that her family was recovering from covid.
Turns out my cousin got sick about 12 days ago and had to be hospitalized, got Remdesivir (at least she isn't so much of an AV that she's refusing treatment and relying on Ivermectin), developed bacterial pneumonia, etc.
She is home with in-home nursing care but may be having a dead cat bounce as she had this to say: "I’m not out of the woods yet but I feel like I have turned a corner, I’m so grateful to be alive."
I don't think she realizes yet what she has done to her health but not getting vaccinated and then getting covid was a really stupid move on her part. I hope she recovers but I suspect we will all be hearing about long covid now for the forseeable future.
