Corona virus on its own thread.

That’s my wife, 13 month old son and I all tested positive this morning. Whilst I wasn’t necessarily a conspiracy theorist around covid I have been naive in terms of “I’m young, fit and healthy - it won’t get me”.


None of us have had a high temperature, persistent cough or lost our sense of smell / taste but the muscle aches throughout Tuesday day and night were unbearable so I decided to get us all tested as a precaution and now glad I did.


Aches and pains are more manageable but today the tightness round the chest and shortness of breath is quite scary. I have asthma (very, very mild) and it’s quite similar to when I need a few puffs of my inhaler, which again isn’t very often.


Little man is fine thankfully and wife a bit fatigued but generally ok. Managed to get some time off work to help out. My wife is just finishing her mat leave.


Fingers crossed that’s the worst of it gone.


For anyone around the age of 30 and thinking they are invincible, think again. It’s been a scary 48 hours for us all.


That said, it’ll be the isolation that potentially gets the better of me (or should I say, when my wife gets the better of me after driving her demented🤣).


Stay safe everyone.

Take care mate. Hope you and the family recover quickly

Where do you think you caught it R, have you been out and about much? Look after yourselves.

No clue - difficult to say who gave who it too in the family as none of us have had covid symptoms as such. I’ve only seen one other person outside in 2021.

My wife has met a couple of friends for walks outside, one at a time. They are all fine.

I’ve two suspicions:

1.) Scotmid / Asda local to me. Been in a few times past 7-10 days. Probably too often upon reflection!

2.) The takeaway delivery driver on Saturday who decided to hand every item to me with no gloves on as opposed to ringing the doorbell and walking away. Equally though, it was my choice to take it from him...

Hope you're starting to feel better. Terrible disease.

Scotmids are particularly bad in my experience. I stopped shopping in my local store (Granton Road) a while ago as none of the staff wore masks at any time. I suspect (admittedly with no evidence beyond what's common sense) that smaller convenience stores are likely to be high risk for transmission.

Sorry to hear that Chuck. It’s a horrible virus and from your experience it affects everyone no matter their age or whether they have ‘underlying health conditions’.

From a fat old unfit *&*^ I take some satisfaction that the young fannies behaving like *&*^ shouldn’t be as fucking smug as they appear to be.

Brazilian variant detected in the UK and is causing alarm, from what I hear is the worry and early thought is the vaccine currently in the UK may not cover this variant, going to be many many more variants to come in the coming years.
