Damn, the dedication is real.

I don't have it, but I know a family member or friend who does/did have it. Glad they recovered. I hope you all stay safe! ♡

I'm not literally 100% sure, but I put I don't have it, but I know a family member or friend who does/did have it

See, my whole family got flu shots in the fall, but my parents and sister (who live near each other but nowhere near me) around late March came down with flu-like symptoms that lasted about a week each and were pretty bad, but not enough for hospitalization. The thing is, they live in a state that was still doing extremely, extremely poor testing at the time, so none of them ever got tested even though they saw doctors about it.

So I'm pretty sure my immediate family has had it, and therefore that seemed like the fairest answer. They'll know for sure once antibody tests are readily available in their state.

I don't have a "backlog" per se because I aggressively catch up to anything I read, but I'll be damned if I die before One Piece ends.

Very few cases here, so I have no friends or family members who have gotten it. We’re lucky in that way but it’s hard to imagine the path forwards without a vaccine.

Thankfully none of my family and friends caught the covid-19, including me. Though around two months ago my lecturer was admitted to the hospital, and from the rapid test she might caught covid. And thankfully, I heard she has already out from the hospital.

I'm from Indonesia, and currently I can't go back to my hometown since there are some papers needed to travel outside the city now since the covid, and I have to pay for the test to prove myself healthy.

I hope we can get this through eventually.

I've voted for "I don't have it and none of my family members or friends have it so far", but... Well, the thing is that I don't know anyone who had it, but there are lots of cases in my city, I work face to face with the public, and like me, part of my family and friends do the same. Maybe we are lucky, but we haven't done a Covid test, so who knows if we've been infected or not.

I did this a decade ago. My only backlogs are with comics but it is very manageable and my game backlog can be counted on one hand outside of new releases. I look forward to new releases instead.

I've had multiple coworkers die from it. Please stay safe everyone. 😢
