Aye, she's been told she's got blood clots as well.

 

She sounded rough as fuck when I spoke to her this morning. The only reason she didn't end up in ICU was because it's already full.

 

Not totally out of the woods yet but things are looking up.

One of my distant cousin's in Canada had blood clots and they thought he'd suffered a minor heart attack too. They were initially investigating whether he had lung cancer. He doesn't and they now think that all his ongoing problems are down to long covid. He's relatively young and in good health. 

 

It's mad how the virus can do next to nothing to some relatively healthy people and then totally fuck over others. 

 

And, I hope your sister gets well soon.

Thanks.

 

Some quality ones that I've not seen before.

I found him (or her not sure) on Twitter. There's been some great ones.

It’s in my house. 

It would have to be YOUR house and not just THE house wouldn't it.

Yes because I am mirroring the possessive tense used in the question. I’m not in my my office, I’m in my house. It would be asymmetrical and awkward to say “I’m not in MY office, I’m in THE house”.

I was messing, you don't have to explain yourself.

Death at 60 days make for even worse reading...

 

No wonder they moved the goalposts, that's bleak.

 

 

I thought we'd be in excess of 100k without the tested in 28 days metric. 87k is still grim.

Before we went into lockeown and we were tier 2 and Cheshire was tier 3, two police vans pulled up on speke Road, built a road block and started pulling woolybacks over and sending them home, it took me 40 years but I finally realised my dream.

Interesting that I is a capital letter but you isn't. There's a lot to be said for capital letters demonstrating importance to a subject.

We need a grammar thread.

I caught the first few minutes of Granada News earlier. They were saying that cases (positive tests?) have quadrupled in Halton/Knowsley/Merseyside in the last week. That’s just staggering. Where I live avoided it for the most part first time around but now the local hospital is maxed out. 170 Covid ICU beds all being used. Scary shit. I can’t see Matt Hancock popping along for quick photo opportunity like he’s done in the past anytime soon. I dread to think what it’s like at Addenbrookes in Cambridge where I see a specialist. It’s a much bigger hospital serving a much wider area and treating patients that smaller hospitals can’t. 
 

A couple of weeks ago I wouldn’t have thought twice about nipping into a shop/supermarket for a loaf and a bottle of milk. Now I don’t even want to answer the door.

Thank fuck we pulled back from that 'let it rip' herd immunity/ 'everyone's already it'/ 'yeah but T-Cells' bullshit, the country would have been destroyed. As it is, it feels like it's on the brink.
