    That's awful. Hope you feel better. Early days but happy you're not getting the worst of the noticeable symptoms, hopefully it stays that way.

    Hope it all passes and you get through it with no issues mate.

    One of the guys on my football team tested positive when he came back from holiday a couple of weeks ago. He was completely asymptomatic and only got tested because one of the guys he went with tested positive after being required to be tested by his work as he’d been out of the country. Seven lads went on that holiday and all tested positive after the first guy did but all were asymptomatic and all got through the quarantine period without issues. I haven’t interacted with him since he’s been out of quarantine but it’s crazy to think about how many people have had it without realising.

    At the risk of asking a really dumb question, how did you see the spots in your throat?

    Hope you feel better!

    its funny because we also can get results faster but it depends whos paying.

    i was talking to one of the dads of one of the kids on my sons baseball team and he works in medical/ testing. He said, private companies actually pay to get their test results faster( like a mining company where people fly out to work for a month) and everyone else, it can take a day or two.

    If it was truly manmade, top intelligence agencies out of Korea, Japan, Taiwan and others in that region would have been all over it.

    Pretty much yeah, this sums it up.

    I read her paper.

    It's mostly bullshit and comes from an illogical viewpoint. It's terribad and the reason she's flaunting the paper now is because it'll get destroyed in Peer Reviewal.

    I'm not a virologist but even I can see some issues with her supposed 'evidence'.

    I have alot of doubts about her claims and her apparent expertise. Alot of her references are just complete bullshit as well - how many peer reviewed references has she used in this paper?

    She's probably never even ran a PCR test in her fucking life.

    Waste of time. Shit's just thinly veiled propaganda and pseudoscience.

    They were spots on the outside of my throat. Sorry, should've been clear lol. Inside my throat was fine lol


    And whoever said getting results quicker, I got mine within an hour from the university.

    Really sucks that places seem to pick and choose the wait time for results. My dad was tested and got his results back 3 days later. My aunt and cousin who were positive didn't hear back for four days I believe it was. That waiting time would be awful.

    i know someone who missed the call for results( came the next day) they left a message saying you need to answer the phone. She waited 3 more days for the next call. it was negative

    She had to obviously miss work and lost money since it was negative( the government only pays if its positive)

    Re: Coronavirus

    Few people from my work having to now isolate but still can't get a test atm. When I took my test a while ago now it was booked pretty late in the day, delivered next day and posted off and I got the results the following day by email and text, was a pretty a pretty good process overall tbh. Had a lovely gentleman spit towards staff in work the other day, all because he was asked to distance himself and not stand right against another person who was clearly very uncomfortable, thankfully we have the protective screens and the other person we tried to help out went and bought us some chocolates. Baffles me that there are still people, 6 months on from lockdown, who still don't get the rules you have to follow.

    So at work on my work the psych unit, they are still taking in kids, because money you know. And the kids have to "quarantine" in their rooms until their tests comes back. On the hallway with the rest of the unit. They can't come out. But these are kids with autism, ADHD, PTSD. An 8 year old with those things won't stay in their room. Had one kid recently who just needed a lot of attention but on quarantine it's hard to give it to him. And then guess what happens if the kid gets escalated because he's stuck in his room? We have to restrain him, and get close to him for a long period of time. I was honestly hoping he did test positive so I could sue the fucking place for their fake Quarantine procedure. No point in even doing it if they're not separated from the other kids.

    But yes those 3-4 days seems like forever for me when we're waiting on them to have their tests come back.
