COVID-19 And it’s effect on everyone and everything

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances?

Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet.

Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction.

Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it.

Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line.

Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you?

So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves.

I had just completed 14 days self isolation (due to my mother in law having the symptoms of Coronavirus), then I developed symptoms myself. I have just isolated myself again for 7 days ending today and I was tested for the virus yesterday morning, just awaiting my results and should be back in work tomorrow. Can't wait to get back to a bit of normality!

How & where did you get tested out of interest? Was this the antigen test (to see if you currently have the virus?)

As I am a health care worker I was prioritised for testing as I developed symptoms. The test however was carried out 6 days after my symptoms started and when I was feeling a lot better (no fever) so pretty sure the results will come back negative as the test was the one to check for the presence of the virus. 

My test was carried out in the car park of a secure unit/hospital in Cardiff and consisted or a swab to the back of my throat. Very unpleasant.

How concerning was it for you BearSmog?

I was concerned the first 48 hours as I had a terrible fever and my legs and back were in agony. I feel so much better now, although I have completely lost the ability to smell or taste anything. Hope that returns soon. My symptoms would definitely fall into the mild category.

Sounds like you've had the virus from the symptoms you describe. 

It's good to hear of someone making a recovery from it. Take care.

Yes indeed do take care and please let us know when your smell and taste ability returns.

Must be horrible not being able to smell bacon cooking:classic_smile:

Take a look at Professor Karol Sikora (@ProfKarolSikora): https://twitter.com/ProfKarolSikora?s=09

I've started following this guy on Twitter, he's a breath of fresh air with his commentary on the situation and his tweets certainly give me optimism. 

Hope everyone is keeping well.

It will be interesting to see how they allocate the key equipment between the various countries. 
 

I've just seen on the BBC news app that the government are changing their story.


Coronavirus: 'Mix-up' over EU ventilator scheme https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52052694

Now it turns out we didn’t get some emails and therefore missed a deadline to join the EU programme. Got to wonder how bad communication is in this government, every other day there’s contradictions. 

Worth revisiting this I think - the EU haven't actually managed to get any yet apparently.  I bet the individual countries have though...

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
