What are the current recommendations if you catch COVID? I don't see much on the government website, I found this on https://www.airedesantafe.com.ar/sa...gares-testeos-y-vacunatorios-santa-fe-n402607

  • In the event of a positive result, you must isolate for five days from the date of onset of symptoms.
  • The protocol recommends not going to work, educational, social activities or public places with symptoms.
  • The person must maintain the prevention measures for ten days (chinstrap, hand hygiene, ventilation of the environment).

  • If the person presents mild symptoms compatible with COVID-19, but does not belong to the population at risk, the following is recommended:
  • Do not go to work, educational, social activities or public places with symptoms.
  • Maintain prevention measures for ten days (chinstrap, hand hygiene, environmental ventilation).

Is there anything official available?

Strong rise in Covid infections in Argentina: 62,261 new cases and another 39 deaths in the last 7 days according to the report that
the National Ministry of Health released this Monday
....Both figures represent a strong weekly jump. They show a 129% increase in infections compared to the previous part, published on December 12, when 27,119 had been recorded. That is, they grew more than double.
It is the highest figure since the reports began to be published weekly, in mid-April. It exceeded the 52,745 reported on July 31....When looking at the situation of the deceased patients in detail, "37 were older than 50 years and 19 were older than 80. More than 71% of the deceased had comorbidities and 28 had the application of the booster dose, although within these only 1 had been applied in the last 4 months".....

COVID alert: when to get vaccinated with the fifth, sixth and seventh dose, according to Carla Vizzotti...specialists from various health agencies throughout the country point out that figures do not fully reflect the events known as "hyper-contagious", such as the celebrations for Argentina's victory in the World Cup and the year end parties. National Minister of Health, Carla Vizzotti , who after the deliberations with the Federal Health Council, advised that "all people who have passed 120 days since their last dose, regardless of the number of doses nor the number of reinforcements, they need to get a dose to be able to stimulate the defenses so that the cases do not translate into hospitalizations and deaths, especially those who are most at risk"....

Useful information, thanks Gracielle!

Of the list:
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Fever
  • Muscle pain
I can confirm the cough and nasal congestion, and these last until well after the other symptoms have cleared, and indeed after an antigen test returns negative (which took 6 days). Fever was over and done with in 2 days.

I suspect my case came from Chile, which has never got COVID under control (as a rational analysis of their vaccination scheme and isolation policies would lead one to expect), and I have a nasty suspicion that it's possible to transmit this variant even after an antigen test returns negative (maybe the tests aren't specific enough to the variant). Nobody caught it from me, fortunately, though I was very careful.
