“recovering from Russian-strain Covid”
…more like Hunter Biden-strain COVID.
Boy, that Hunter Biden is one powerful dude! He apparently coughed on Anna in addition to being the source of all corruption in the world! But I thought this was once a classical music site, before it was hijacked by right-wing bloggers who keep shifting their usernames?
Well better they hang out here where they are irritating but can’t do much harm.
“But I thought this was once a classical music site, before it was hijacked by right-wing bloggers who keep shifting their usernames?”
It was, yes. But clicks is clicks.
They probably recommend this site to each other because we are always so willing to feed the trolls.
How would you even know that – unless your own mind worked that way.
Hunter performs better on drugs. The number of rehabs he’s gone through is astonishing. Easy to see where all that Russian money went.
consider the source
In what sense is a concert three weeks hence, with a programme, “impromptu”?
What is “Russian-strain Covid”? This is the first time I have heard it differentiated by nationality.
In August I read that there were 6 strains of covid. “Russia’s COVID-19 strain did not come from China. It was found that, unlike many other countries, Russia got its virus from Europe and not China…nine different coronavirus strains that are currently circulating in Russia have not been encountered elsewhere.”
Not peer reviewed Karl.
Now I’ve heard everything: Covid-19 is racist!!
I suppose, with most concerts/ opera stars normally scheduled years in advance, 3 weeks counts as “impromptu.”
She has chosen rather demanding arias, way to go then . Will wait for her Norma next. Belcanto music is said to heal all the viruses ever known 😉
There are 7 mutations of Russian Sars-cov-2, and they apparently did not originate in China.
So Putin’s vaccine is only good for the Russian strain?
Is Netrebko the “bad-will ambassador” for spreading the Putin strain of Covid in Europe, starting with Milan?
(Maybe that’s how Milan got contaminated in the first place.)
Opera singers as vectors of biological warfare.
Rasputin’s vaccine has not been properly tested or validated. It would be illegal in the UK/US.
Remember the claims of narcolepsy for the swine flu vaccine.
This should make you feel better:
Doesn’t this show us that covid is not so severe in the non elderly? Just one month after contracting it she is back singing. I had dizzy spells and headaches for a month but other than 36 hours in bed with severe fever, body aches, and nausea I was fine.
No, your logic is erroneous, even if you came to a correct conclusion. In and of itself, Mrs. Netrebko’s COVID-19 experience only shows how she reacts to COVID-19.
The overwhelming majority of people recover from covid with no serious after effects. The news usually only reports on people who have severe reactions and that is making people think it’s more serious than it really is. Domingo had it and recovered at age 78.
You made a potentially valid point but couldn’t resist once again ruining it with anecdotal observation.
You’ll never win with logic if you abandon it when it suits you.
All you can do is argue Kyle. That’s why people don’t want to listen to negative people like yourself and you’re alone.
Karl is optimistic and reasonable as usual. Always nice to read.
I’ll just label that as an ad hominem attack and happily move on to the rest of my day full of music making with friends.
You shouldn’t discount the long-term neurological consequences.
Just a day and a half in bed “with severe fever, body aches, and nausea” Probably also some lifelong changes (like to your heart and lungs) you do not realize yet.
Lifelong changes are called ‘getting old’. It happens to everyone. For some reason people now think they are going to live forever. You won’t.
When it happens, I’ll believe it.
