The STOIC study found that inhaled budesonide given to patients with COVID-19 within seven days of the onset of symptoms also reduced recovery time. Budesonide is a corticosteroid used in the long-term management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Findings from the phase 2 randomised study, which was supported by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), were published on the medRxiv pre-print server.The findings from 146 people – of whom half took 800 micrograms of the medication twice a day and half were on usual care – suggests that inhaled budesonide reduced the relative risk of requiring urgent care or hospitalisation by 90% in the 28-day study period. Participants allocated the budesonide inhaler also had a quicker resolution of fever, symptoms and fewer persistent symptoms after 28 days.
I need to see good live music. It's been too long.
Two different things: the vaccine is meant to prevent you from getting COVID in the first place, and Budesonide is meant to help you recover if you do get COVID. Neither is meant to replace the other.

I miss the occasional night out on the town, baseball game or concert.
Is that the cookie you're willing to give up your freedom for? Don't get me wrong, I'm not pushing against the ropes. I get it...we be fucked. Hell, I really believe I'm going to get fired soon. I refuse to stop talking to clients about the mask and hoax.

Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

If you're for them, I'm against you. If you're against them, I'm with you.
I was alluding to, what seems like, your willingness to accept masking in order to do the things you want to do.
I'm EXTREME anti-Covid. But if I refused to wear a mask in a small range of situations, I'd be hurting other people's livelihood. It's a slippery slope and hard to navigate. I'm also biased and selfish. I don't always think of the greater good when I want what I want. Not gonna lie.
@WineHorror1 Maybe you could just give them a gentle nudge in the direction of truth by pointing them to articles that quote doctors saying masks do nothing.
No, you are NOT being selfish. The hypochondriacs are the selfish ones. Got to reverse that thinking. FREEDOM IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER.
GlocknLoad saysNo, you are NOT being selfish. The hypochondriacs are the selfish ones. Got to reverse that thinking. FREEDOM IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER. You sound like a selfish dick. The least I can do is wear a mask in someone else’s place of business /home upon request. I’m super fortunate that I get to work from home due to Covid and don’t have to wear a mask more than 5-10 minutes any given week. I feel for the people working 8-12 hours a day in a mask to make a measly living while you can’t wear one for a few seconds to pick up food or check out at a grocery store?
I mean no insult at all with this, but I think you're naive and gullible. That's not a fault, it's just you're not suspicious enough.
But I feel like a loser to complain with how little I actually have to wear one.
I want a fucking middle of the road common sense party.
I’m not gullible... I’m actually moderate and realistic. Wearing a mask from time to time is realistically a small inconvenience. I’m annoyed at far left people who are afraid to open schools even after all adults become vaccinated. I’m also frustrated with jackasses that throw tantrums because a business owner asks them to put on a mask to pick up food.
I feel like you have to be far right or far left to fucking be heard. I want a fucking middle of the road common sense party.

Look, if a business owner demands I stick my pinky up my asshole and sing Over the Rainbow to do business
