COVID-19 coronavirus

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Thanks guys. Probably a seasonal virus. Trouble is you hear so much about COVID that all the other virus's have disappeared and you get paranoid.

It's horrible. A cough or an ache makes you paranoid. But it might not be paranoia. Best wishes to everyone and their family.
I'm at the point of not-sleeping, panicking and boozing to death so I hope everyone is healthy.

Luckily I haven't had all the classified symptoms. No temperature or cough and I still have my appetite! The sore throat has gone and I feel so much better today. Just a washed out feeling you get after not being very well or a hangover!! lol The Army give you a self testing kit and I should get my results in 3 days.
I just feel so grateful I feel well today :)
It's so hard to read the symptoms - almost all of them could easily be something else. I veer from thinking I must have had it at the end of March (cold / cough that wouldn't shift, then a sudden wave of fatigue but ultimately nothing serious), then thinking I can't possibly have had it because while it was a big pain the arse it wasn't actually all that bad. If I was convinced that herd immunity would work, I'd be hoping that I'd had it. But ...

Glad to hear you've been feeling better, whatever the test shows.

That f**king bollock-headed moron of a Prime Minister is doing everything he can to confuse the public back into work, despite it not being safe, so he can just shrug and bluster and say "Not my fault" when we get another massive spike. What a turd.

I read about that (although the Beeb didn't really make it easy to find). So much for the 100k capacity.

One good thing to come from all this is that I've been able to learn a bit of sign language from watching the daily briefings here in Hungary :)

Positive news. I had a blood test for Glandular fever and it came out positive and not Covid I thought I had a couple of months ago.I'm much better. I just had a flare up a couple of weeks ago and that's when they decided to do a blood test. I've never heard of adults catching the "Kissing Disease"? I've only kissed the cats!! lol :lol:

my aunt passed away because of COVID 19.
she was only 62 and in very good health which just goes to show.

i am still f**king pissed off that people do not stick to the 1 1/2 metre distance. the amount of times i literally stop to let someone pass me by to keep the distance blows my mind.

even waiting outside the hospital when my son had his wisdom teeth pulled, he got dizzy i met him outside there was a guy standing also waiting but he started moving closer to me to see inside. i stepped back to create space between us but seriously? people can be so f**king ignorant and just do not think.
here we go again....

People don't understand or don't care or both about keep safe distance anymore and that's sad.
Saturday had to go to Super Market and an employee almost walk over me just to make 2 steps less while i was waiting in the counter :? :evil:

Very sorry to hear that, Debs ... :( :( : ... hugs and condolences from here. 62 is no age.
And there are so many people calling for a return to "normal", because they are just fed up
with being restricted personally and do not care for others.
I hope, a vaccine is developed very soon ...

Sorry to hear that Debs.

People here are also driving me crazy.
The worst when you hear that are some M.D. that "don't believe" in covid-19, that is a hoax, or that is spread by 5G.
