Did my surge test which is required for my area this evening and it gets collected from my daughter's school tomorrow. Should be a few days before I know whether I have the South African lurgy or not which is just as well as I'm feeling a little chesty.

Thanks and it is this time of year in the U.K when I start to get little hayfever coughs, runny nose and sticky eyes etc. Methinks it's just that but I should have pretty good vaccine protection from serious illness if it does prove more sinister.

Thanks again all.

I think now that I have protection, the biggest fear of catching the lurgi would be the disruption it would cause to my work schedule.  I suppose that not a bad place to be in considering what the world looked like a year ago.

I have a sneaky feeling that the poo's going to hit the fan again over here and we'll all be back to square one. Not that I think that mistakes are the cause - although they certainly contribute - I just think there isn't a real, long term solution so we're stuck in this depressing cycle.

Local Hospitals on Black alert, not for covid but just trying to cope with the back  log of op's.
Winter will be a "killer" but as you state what else can be done.

We have a prime minister who frees people from masks   :-[

Like, everyone I know has (or recently had) COVID - and I know a lot of people. Most of them didn't even know they had it and was discovered by the regime of testing required by schoolchildren or for travel, but those who did display symptoms were really ill by all accounts.

While that sounds ominous, it does pose the possibility of real herd immunity and an end to this damn virus.
