    'For those watching in Black and White, the UK is the dark line. There now follows a Corona Political Broadcast, except for viewers in Scotland.' BTW, so sorry to hear of all you folks affected by this in one way or the other, glad to see you are on the mend 'Elite.'

    These CPAP machines are used to aid patients with Sleep APNOE. I was put on one during my hospital stay due to my breathing difficulties, I've been using one at home for quite a while now and they certainly help during the night hours. I have this one. (obviously you attach a tube to it and you have a mask at the other end.)

    Rate the last film you watched...

    A Star is Born. Surprised I liked this one, very good acting and music. 7.5/10 MIB International. Not as good as the others but worth a watch. 6/10 Spiderman, Far from home. Not their best effort in this franchise 6.5/10 Paradise Hills. What a load of cack. 3/10. A Letter for the King. Enjoyed watching this with the family. 7/10 The kid who would be King. Decent family film but more for kids. 6/10 The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir. Pick of the bunch for me, charming film with a great story and acting. 9/10

    You look after yourself mate and I hope you have a speedy recovery without any complications. As you say, the Health Staff in every country are bloody angels during these worrying times.

    Yes mate, Bielefeld is where I'm at. If your mate needs anything and I can help then don't hesitate to PM me. I'm in isolation but my daughter and other family members are out and about.

    Sad news mate, what can you say apart be there for him. Also, hope Elite is back home soon and on the mend.

    Cheers mate, I hope you and yours are coping well? We're all still full of cold with other symptoms, but in the big scheme of things it isn't anything that bad, especially when you see and here what others are having to put up with. Still waiting for a date for the second test I have to undergo and the result of the CT scans on my thorax. Just lots of rest and hammering the streaming services. Having a garden is a also something you appreciate at times like these. Sitting in there yesterday whilst reading a book, and you kind of take more notice of the wildlife and beauty which is around you. It was spoilt by some neighbours in an adjacent street having a rave with some real shite music, but the police turned up and I'm certain their bank balances won't be so healthy in the coming weeks, the idiots.

    Weather isn't helping. Yesterday we had 18°C, probably more like 21 in the Sun. Today it is 2.3°C at the moment and trying to snow! Edit: Now it is snowing.

    Hope you all make a speedy recovery mate, take care.

    Poor Italians, they now have over a third of total deaths Worldwide. A lot of countries are obviously being a bit secretive about the true state of affairs and a lot of them just won#t have the testing capabilities etc, the true figures must be horrendous, bad enough as it is.

    Finally back home after a bit of a nightmare. Thanks to John (Skaro) for posting a few updates for those who know me and those who are interested in a fellow formurite's well being. They don't mess about over here. I only called the hotline to explain that I'd been fighting a heavy cold for a few weeks, headaches, dry throat and nose, feeling weak and on Saturday coughing up blood. Never had a fever though, none of the time, although my temperature on Saturday was up to 38.3°C. 10 minutes later there was an ambulance at the door with a paramedic looking like a spaceman. He said that quite a few people had called in with more or less the same symptoms (especially coughing up blood) so they were gathering them all up to go to the Covid ward in the main hospital (flap time). Got there and was put straight onto the ward in a room meant for 2 patients but obviously in total isolation. One Dr after the other came in, chest x ray with a portable machine, shit load of blood taken then the Covid test with one of those large earbud things which they rammed up my nose. I was then stuck on a drip which they kept replacing with a new one, not sure what was in it and I didn't bother asking as I slept for ages apart from when they were doing their checks and whatever they were using was making me feel better. Thankfully the Covid test came back negative, think that was on the Monday morning. Here's the catch though, the Dr said that despite it being negative they can't completely rule it out, or that I had indeed had it and my immune system had fought it off. I was supposed to have another test but they've put that off until next week, maybe's because it ties in with this new test that can also say you've had it as well as checking cases who are still positive. They were worried that quite a few people had all called in withing a space of a few hours with the same symptoms but none with a high temperature as such. They took more blood which they are going to analyse as my SATS were, and still are all over the place, also high white blood cell count and although my breathing is way better I still get short of breath and feel dizzy when exerting myself beyond the norm. The thing is, due to having Sleep Apnoe my lungs were tested about 6 months ago with CT scan etc and they were fine. He said he couldn't divulge what the other patients results were but he did say the similarity with everyone was interesting and way above normal odds. I'm kind of hoping it is due to Covid and not that I have some lung issue, although I'll cross that bridge if it arises. I have to have a new CT scan in a local clinic, normally have to wait between 3 -16 weeks for an appointment but they want me to go in at 5pm today. I can't be arsed as all I want to do is go to bed, better go though. I also have to go back to hospital in 10-14 days for a Bronchoskopie and more blood tests. Obviously have to self isolate apart from appointments like this afternoon in clinics set up for it and use a car/taxi. I can go in the garden, so at least I have that. Family are fine apart from sniffles. Not sure if they'll be tested when this Health bod comes over to do that second test. Anyway, just thought I'd give you an update and I'll keep you informed as and when results etc come in. Desperate need of my bed, as although I feel much better I'm still feeling like shit, hopefully this CT scan will get sone quickly. Take care all, strange time we are all having to live through at the moment.
