Re: Coronavirus

I’ve had a cough/cold infection this week, had it for about a week, felt very bad necking “max-Strength” Beechams every few hours for a couple of days. Now feeling better. Did I have COVID? No idea, nor do I care.

Have got a pack in stock as you never know when you might need one.

Our daughter built up quite a stock as there are some elderly (90+) and very high risk (transplant) relatives in her husband's family. We were there for tea last Friday so they've done a test and come back negative, so either we picked it up early Saturday and the symptoms kick in pretty quickly or your not contagious until your showing symptoms or the daughter and son-in-law are in that lucky group that just don't seem to catch it?? Must admit I thought I was in the immune group until today. What made me wonder was that we both felt ill together and I can't remember us both having a cold at the same time or either of us passing a cold to the other.

You're kidding. I have eyes, not the inclination to buy one (LFT)!

Re: Coronavirus

What we need is not vaccines specific to certain spike proteins but closer to the whole virus and variety of proteins - more like an actual infection. That way our bodies get more general antibody protection.


The problem with vaccines made to specific proteins is they don't work (as well) if that protein is what changes. If "whole virus" antibodies can recognise multiple surface proteins, rather than proteins is a specific pattern, then maybe all those proteins need to change to totally escape detection.

Re: Coronavirus

Wife had to have a PCR test prior to an op next week. She failed and tested positive.
Son and I have done lateral flow tests and both positive

That accounts for the persistent cough these last 2 days.

Apart from that none of us feel particularly off with it.

Me and wife both triple jabbed, son double jabbed.

Itís not semantics. Youíve just got hold of the wrong end of the stick.

China needs to do as I suggested if they want to end these episodic lockdown situations. Nobody is talking about making China do anything. They are a sovereign country, arenít they?

If you canít grasp the above I have neither the time nor the crayons to continue the discussion with you.
I said Ď Shanghai has only just survived another lockdown, and now itís Beijing.í

Other than the fact that both lockdowns were due to Covid, I insinuated no such thing.
