Knowing what you know now. Is it worth the risk?

I have IBS as well which complicates matters. My stomach always takes the hit more than anywhere else no matter what illness I pick up. This time it's really suffered though. I'm working with a nutritionist at the moment to try and sort it out.

1,288 new cases and 18 new deaths in the United Kingdom yesterday

The numbers of deaths seemed to have decreased significantly while the number of cases has been on the rise. Is the decrease down to it now hitting a younger age range or has treatment improved or could it be the virus is mutating into something less powerful?

The relapses are common and really did my head in. Fully expecting one that will make me go off sick again, my recovery seems to have just stalled at the moment. Really hoping this isn't as good I ever feel now! 

Sorry fella. That last line really makes it hit home.

Anybody who thinks they may have had Covid got any recurring symptoms? 

My wife possibly had it in April and since then she'd had recurring waves of fatigue and some flu like aches and joint pain (but no actual other flu like symptoms.

Positive to take from that is that he was asymptomatic second time around. Unlike the first time he caught it.

It's the only take. It's literally how immunity works.

He's not immune though is he? He's caught it again.

Immunity doesn't have to mean "can never catch again". In this case, this man's 1st infection was symptomatic and he was ill for a while. He recovered and then was reinfected but with no symptoms because his immune system could destroy the virus before enough damage was caused to cause symptom. It was also a genetically distinct virus the 2nd time, meaning the immunity conferred can cope with mutated versions of Covid. That's secondary immunity.

It's one man and we need a lot more evidence but it's good news. It's also startling how poorly understood immunity is by people who are reporting this negatively.

Why report good news when you can spread anxiety and fear in exchange for clicks.

Exactly. It does show the good/bad sides of Twitter though, initially doom and gloom reported by so-called science correspondents, then lots of Profs in Immunology/Vaccinology correcting the mistake.

Labour call for facemasks to be worn in school, hours after the Government say that facemasks should be worn in schools. This is after Labour said facemasks shouldn't be worn in schools in July, which was a nice opportunity at the time to show how tough on unions they could be.

f***ing pathetic.

You've got to hand it to the Tories. The consistency with which they have said there is no need to wear masks in various settings to then a few days later completely changing the advice is impressive
