Coronavirus

We’ll I’ve avoided it for two and a half years, but flew home from a business trip to LA, thought it was jet lag on Sunday, but put 2 & 2 together when a close business associate said she was feeling pretty crap during the flight. Tested and drew the Positive straw. Feeling pretty shit! Worse than Man Flu!

Out for a Blat or on the Allotment

Same as you @DDubyai avoided it until 2 weeks ago. 
I was advised I was eligible for an anti-viral infusion so had that the day after testing positive and after 48hours I felt 100%, then managed to test negative 6 days later. Only downside is that I had to cancel my next booster & rearrange for 21st Oct.

If you could get any of the anti-viral drugs out there I would recommend it

And to lessen risk of getting very ill, get a flu vaccination, free for over-65s now, free for over-50s from 15th October (UK). Available at most pharmacy and surgeries, some doctor surgeries are already offering free to over-50s.

Delta has largely vanished.

The original vaccine still provides good protection against serious disease when boosted within 6 months or so. After that it provides some help but not via antibodies. 

Omicron BA4/BA5 seems to be poorly immunogenic giving short lived immunity post infection of as little as 3 months. 

Immunity from vaccine plus natural exposure is best, with vaccine alone less good and natural infection very variable from individual to individual. 

Some individuals seem more susceptible to COVID, maybe because of genetics or intercurrent conditions. Some people keep getting it clinically, some never seem to get clinical disease.

Interestingly my wife who reacted badly to the AZ vaccine also had severe symptoms with delta in October and was fairly ill recently with Omicron

I know of a possible case of alopecia post vaccination with the Astrazeneca vaccine in a mother and daughter, highly suggesting a genetic reason for the very rare side effect!

 

Thanks @gregs24 :thumbup:

Anyone interested in visiting the Eletre factory... - ongoing China CV19 policy

Dozens of cities across China, including Wuhan where the coronavirus was first recorded, have gone into lockdown - as the country pursues leader Xi Jinping's zero-Covid policy.

Let's all hope the lockdown formula doesn't spread to the UK again this winter 🤔

I think Joe Public had enough of that over the last couple of years and it would be very difficult to get everyone onside again 🤔
