Good thing we're not in a heatwave so people won't have their windows open

If this coronavirus has prompted me to make one change in my life, it's to sort out my will and advanced directive*. I'd always known on some level that I'm fundamentally alone and would have to rely on myself, but this has really brought it home. So sod it, no heroic measures, no minimum wage carer washing my hair to look nice for visitors who will never come. Let me go and let medical science benefit physically from my death and let charities benefit financially.

Fair enough, mate. Sorry to touch a nerve.

I've been down the pub a few times with Cromwell, my dog. I did a comprehensive health and safety assessment for both of us and my family.

Despite spending all of March and April and May working as a nurse assisting in intubations of Covid patients and working in ITU, I failed to get ill. Many of my work mates did. I spent a lot of time with them not wearing PPE. We worked 60 hour weeks together, not wearing facemasks when we were not looking after patients. We shared very small coffee rooms and kitchens.

Going down the pub is not scary for me. If I was going to catch Covid, it would have happened by now.


Sounds like you were probably completely asymptomatic. Have you been tested for antibodies?

Meanwhile one of my coworkers who also runs a nail salon has a headcold.

I'm not ok with her being at work tbh

Northern Rail sent me a letter saying they were doing track repair at night near my house. I was on nights so I didnt hear it, but nor did my Mrs.

Tracks need to be repaired. They aint doing every night of the year, you have to be a bit understanding.

Regarding the police, I'm pretty lucky but i also have cause to take their name in vain this week as they have neglected to charge a person in a domestic abuse case relevant to me that really just needs to happen.
fun thing the police can arrest someone for up to 48 hours, but the charging in terms of taking them to court and issuing a custodial sentence is handled by the crown prosecution service who are loving cowards

even the police hate them because the filth do all the legwork of intervening, investigating and catching, only for cps to refuse to pursue a case unless they are nigh on guaranteed a win

basically the police probably want to take the piece of poo poo down but cps are refusing to back them up in case it harms their stats

Yeah, no antibodies.

I worked with a few people who had Covid and tested positive.

This was in March. We shared a small coffee room and kitchen.

We turned our theatres into ITUs, we intubated covid patients while wearing full PPE. Donned and Doffed.

We looked after ventilated covid patients.

A few more staff tested positive, a few patients died. But not a scary amount.

We were not stacking up bodies.

We all lived in my department.

I think I'm quite right in saying this was not the healthcare disaster it was meant to be.

It's also possible that you had it long enough ago that you have no antibodies. I do recall some confusion over how long someone is protected for. Or you never got it, it seems likely.

Also while your department might not have struggled, I've heard health professionals say the exact opposite. Granted from other countries, but if it gets bad it gets bad. Our own death rate compared to other countries also puts our healthcare system in a pretty poor light, but other factors play into that like overall general health and how the deaths are reported. Who knows. It would be nice if it wasn't half as dangerous as we were warned, but I'm not about to test that theory.

In addition to what Fartman said, if you have a mild or asymptomatic case antibodies are unlikely to be produced in the first place. It's looking more and more like the cellular rather than humeral immune system is dominant in milder cases and is responsible for longer term immunity. The most likely scenario is that you were very lucky.

Unlike 60,000 dead people and countless others who continue to deal with long term effects of the virus. Including friends and family of mine.

Enjoy the pub.

Can confirm, every day is an adventure in learning how they will damage themselve, the people around them and their environment in new and inventive ways.

For example this morning you were the subject in an important experiment to test the hypothesis "literature can be consumed by blunt force trauma".
