in another 'people are dopes and we're all fucked moment' I just had someone from the Gas walk round my house for 20mins, and then proceed on his way round the other houses in the neighbourhood without mask, gloves or handwashing!

a relative of my wife's, who lives in the UK, decided to go on holidays to france and arrived home about a week ago.
on thursday she developed a cough and this morning reported to facebook that she's developed a fever and has lost her sense of smell. she's in her late 50s and is a chronic asthmatic. i suspect she's in for a rough ride, unfortunately.

I don't want to add unnecessarily to anyone's sense of dread but c'mere - really, try hard not to get covid, even if you're young/healthy/have no underlying conditions. Mrs. egg_ had it in March, was totally fine since, then had a relapse a few weeks ago that had her in A&E 3 times, then 5 days in hospital. Symptoms mostly tiredness and extreme weakness - during the worst episodes she couldn't walk or talk or really move at all. She's been at home for 10 days or so, and has improved, but still is pretty under the weather, and is still getting periods of weakness in her right arm where she can't hold her phone or manage a fork when she's eating

That's awful, @egg, I really hope she turns a corner, for good, soon.

Very hard not to get disheartened that this isn't going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Never mind the random events like the Oliver Bond flats, I think people just aren't willing to put the effort in again. Compliance *looks* really good, loads of mask wearing etc., but too much "Sure call in for a coffee, it'll be grand" etc., going on.

I think until people are met with the hard reality that they either catch it or lose someone in their immediate circle, it won't be taken seriously, and with winter flu season coming, it'll be too late...

That's awful. Sending good wishes to Mrs. egg_ .

Reckon I had it in March and still get the occasional shortness of breath, although that could always just be the old.
