I'm going to a gig for the first time in years tomorrow. We are intending to wear masks, but I was wondering how many other people would. I was pleased to see the band themselves tweet to ask people to test and wear a mask.

Interesting - logged a LFT today and now it's 'upload a photo of your lft and we'll tell you the result' (they claim that the software is more likely to be able to see a faint line which we may not spot ourselves). Wonder if it's because I qualify for anitvirals or not (it was negative but as I've had a runny nose [and fatigue, stiffness, aches] wanted to check it wasn't covid)

run free
I had flu for the first time in a decade in September. I tested negative for Covid but I was very weak and had problems standing whilst wfh. My mother who was living with me also caught my flu and tested negative. However at the first sign she gargled with salt water and took cold meds. She recovered quickly where as I took 10 days to get the phlegm and coughing to stop. So maybe had flu or maybe had Covid. We both tested negative

run free
So would I have immunity to flu at this moment in time?

I'd say 'better immunity' run free. (a) there's multiple flu variants, so one may not fully protext against another and (b) immunity & in-body protection levels are different in different people.

And it's 'nature', so no absolute certainty, always a statistical game.

saw this article:

I can understand the logic behind raspberries but I wouldn't call broccoli ready to eat as I cook mine (I'm aware it can be eaten raw)...

Seems to correlate with quite a bit of experience reported here.

Got something to say?
