Maybe we're already close to the end of this and the cases we see now going bad are the crescendo

Bloody hope so, I could be out with my friends skating, smoking and just generally making the most of the last bit of my last teenage year before I'm too old for my behaviour to be normal but noooooooo someone had to eat some dodgy bat ?

Finland has had 3 casualties in total during the whole pandemic and restaurants only serve takeaway now, bars closed, ski centres closed, schools (mostly) closed. And travel to and from the Helsinki region is probably going to be banned in a couple of days. 

Meanwhile Stockholm alone has had 18 deaths due to covid19 today and everything basically stays open in Sweden. Wtf?

Every kitchen is different, yes. I have worked for an incredibly anally retentive chef. Nightmare to work for, but the best chef and food. But still you use your hands and they can't see everything

I was friends with a Japanese guy years ago. He'd wash and wipe down everything before it went in his fridge. Id look at him like he was nuts and he be like 'I can't afford to get sick'.

Can't you just hang out in smaller groups?

There are 4 business establishments out of many hundreds in my city that have been identified as having at least one Covid infected person coming from them, 1 of which just so happens to be the waxing spa my friend worked at, the friend I've been in isolation with the last week and a half. What are the chances?  Anyway, she was scheduled to work the day the person went there, but luckily she had just quit so didn't come in for her shift.  However, she did go there the next day to tie up some loose ends, and came in contact with people who were working there the day before. So far she has no symptoms, but she's not outside the 2 week window yet.  It's a good thing my capacity for anxiety is severely stunted, otherwise I'd be freaking out right now.

horrifying.

 

I try not to add too much to the doom & gloom, but a really good friend of mine works as a tech at sloan kettering, which is a cancer center in NYC. They aren't set up to be an ER and a week or so ago he had to help change out their OR equipment to make it ER compatible, since the type of dispensing machines, etc. are totally different. Up until today, he and I were texting stupid shit...zombie apocalypse, eating brains, monkey pictures, whatever. He texted today saying that things just got real. His staff are all sick, sick patients everywhere, and shortage of the most important things. He can't just up and leave or work from home like the rest of us.

So yeah, I can't even imagine being stuck in NYC right now and having to work at a hospital where it must be totally surreal witnessing this first hand.

Well after 7 days in a row treating 40-odd patients daily without any available PPE I unsurprisingly came down with coronavirus symptoms on Monday.

All feels a bit weird at home as my wife (who also works in the NHS) has been evacuated to a hotel so she can continue to work. Means I spend the day pottering around in a dressing gown listening to zoviet france or the NTS sessions.

I've felt much worse than this with flu before, but I'm aware it's only day 3...

I work in cancer care, so wasn't treating covid-19 patients directly - but of course there was no testing being done at the time so I ended up treating a number of pts that have since tested positive.

It's an unprecedented situation, although 2 weeks ago there were things we needed from the government: more tests, decent PPE, and a massive expansion of ICU beds. it's a shame they spent weeks faffing about with that herd immunity bollocks - at least they seem to be mobilising in the right direction now.

sucks you've gotta quarantine away from your wife while you're sick, hopefully it doesn't hit you badly and it passes quickly. NTS sessions at least tho... ? and you've got WATMM!!!!! :nyan:

Worried about baph, hope he’s doing ok

Thanks, dude. I’m doing ok.  Still no breathing issues, which is the major thing of course.

I developed what seems to be a secondary sinus infection (which kind of runs in the family after getting a virus like a cold or flu) and that makes it a bit hard to gauge whether the initial thing is gone or still kicking around. I have gunk running down my throat and making me cough and giving me a sinus headache. I got some antibiotics in the mail today from my healthcare provider, so hopefully that kicks in soon!

Very happy to read this! No breathing issues = a big +++. Did you end up getting tested by chance just to know?

No, I’m still not tested. I tried going through an alternate route through worker’s comp insurance and got the same spiel. Nobody is getting tested unless they’re very, very sick or very, very rich.

Shit’s fucked up and bullshit.
