    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    Not really. With everything in the news and if I hadn't had experience with asthma I'd probably have found it scarier. What I found weirdest was that I was mentally bright as a button. No fatigue. No tiredness. No headaches or can't be arsed feeling you get when you have a cold or flu. I had a nap during working hours one day that was it. Didn't take much if any medicine, didn't feel the need to. If it wasn't coronavirus that I had then it is one hell of a coincidence to have a chest infection, possibly bronchitis or walking pneumonia three days after lockdown! To hear Dan with the same thing just adds to me being convinced I had it.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    I'm all recovered now. First symptom was sore throat, breathing and cough started 2-3 days after. Worst of it lasted about 4 days, at times I felt it just wasn't shifting but by day 11-12 from the first symptom it was almost gone. I found my breathing and cough improved if I went outside for a light walk and got some fresh air into my lungs.

    This sounds similar to what I had. Fortunately I had an inhaler that I use in hayfever season so the chest pains and breathlessness were managed. I did have a cough. Sounded like a 60 year old smoker. No fever however the NHS rather than ask if you have a fever are asking if your chest and back are hot to touch. Mine was. Is there someone who can check yours? On one of the days I was doing physical activity that raised heart rate. When I stopped you could hear my lungs expanding and contracting, like a ticking time bomb. It was one of the most disturbing and scary things I've experienced so whatever you do stick to FM!

    If they mobilised they can get there. South Korea can do it and are the same size as England. We aren't bothering because the aim is to create a test everyone can buy from Boots and Superdrug instead. Once the peak in lockdown is reached it will likely take 3-6 weeks to open things again. Then it's a case of what is the strategy to stop or isolate a second wave. How do you do that without test and trace?

    Sir Patrick Vallance would love that. He's probably modelling how soon it would all be over if he knock's on everyone's door under the age of 60 and breaths on them Seriously though it's too early to say but anything less than test and trace is a recipe to getting screwed.

    The Dr said a few times we are at 10k capacity now and will be at 25k within a few weeks.

    Not sure the tests have any great bearing on a step change in deaths. Which things have they lied about? Genuine question. Just switched the press conference off because the quality of journalism is shoddy. They're so aggressive it's ridiculous. Like foaming tweeters and it makes the questions naff.

    538 more deaths today in the UK. Gone from being a week or so behind France on daily deaths to suddenly being a day behind. Why the sudden and sharp increase?

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    Ever since yesterdays press conference there has been a flurry of articles about testing. None of which make SAGE look good. Lockdown was the result of backlash against SAGE putting pressure on the government and testing will go down the same path.

    Don't think you can shut it down without impacting the staff of essential services. What you could have are hospital IDs or government letters for getting into central London. Buses need to continue though, people like me are a 40 minute walk to the supermarket, can't get back with a weekly shop without the bus.

    The tube is supposed to be for hospital staff only.
