Which would make lockdown for a year totally redundant. You don’t ‘kill’ or ‘defeat’ a virus.

All you’re doing is prolonging how long it takes for everyone to get it and (on the whole) get over it.

I don’t think that’s true though because if only one person has corona and they isolate and get over it where can people get it from? Unless someone eats another bat?
But yeah it’s weird a couple I know here have literally not done a thing since last May. Barely been out; only to there local whop 50 m away. Haven’t seen anyone, gone anywhere etc. Just stayed and worked in their flat and they both got it a few weeks ago. All that for nothing you’ve basically wasted 6 months of your life.

Wow, and I was starting to wonder why we were in another Lockdown.

…. that isn’t true ? But where does it ‘live’ ???

Tested positive yesterday Sad

Had a really strange heartbeat all week, working on footy Tuesday Wednesday but felt fine, apart from the palpitations, drove home on Thursday and just felt knackered, couldn't move off the sofa. Tested on Friday.

Anyone else had a dodgy heart with this? Bit worrying, the doc said its probably fine but its pounding away at the moment!

I didn’t have heart issues but the fatigue was shocking. It took me 15 days to start feeling better. Still not tried a run yet and I was positive on 01.01

Oesophageal tremors are common with viral infections, can replicate palpitations. All part of the body fighting the onset. Thinking it's your heart could lead to anxiety about it, which in turn leads to increase heart rate (no qualified doctor)

“The death of the contemporary forms of social order ought to gladden rather than trouble the soul, but what is frightening is that the departing world leaves behind it not an heir, but a pregnant widow. Between the death of one and the birth of the other much water will flow by, a long night of chaos and desolation will pass.

At first sight there is much that is still normal; things run smoothly, judges judge, the churches are open, the stock exchange hums with activity, armies manoeuvre, palaces blaze with light, but the soul of life has fled, everyone is uneasy at heart, death is at our elbow, and, in reality, nothing goes well. In reality, there is no church, no army, no government, no judiciary. Everything has become the police.”
