But... but… flu is more dangerous. Cluck, cluck, gibber, gibber, my old man's a mushroom, etc.

They say everyone is connected by 6 degrees of separation. Well, we've already seen deaths 2 degrees away, and the people we know are obviously inconsolable. A colleague of my wife has died, only in his 40s, and an aunt of my wife's friend has died and been buried without any family at the bedside or the funeral.

We're on day 10 of self-isolation and it's been hell at times. Adoption and divorce papers have been filled in ready to post. But joking aside, it's bloody annoying seeing people I know on Facebook not taking this seriously, holding house parties, going to see mates and joining in the mass buying of stuff just because.

Talk is professional football to be behind closed doors.

I presume that would mean Premier League, Championship, League 1 and League 2. Technically we aren't a professional league although 80% of the teams are now full time.

If our games do go ahead and those leagues above are cancelled we could actually benefit from this and have increased attendances of those local fans wanting a football fix.

I do believe that moving to this phase is overkill however. Swine Flu was a pandemic in 2009 and far more people were infected with very little disruption to every day life and the UK economy.

still believe in overkill and little disruption to every day life and the UK economy but really interested if you have more advice for us, all gone quiet over there.

Be interesting to see what the peramitors are of it if that does happen. What the acceptable reasons to leave the house are. Also how they will enforce it

Telling everyone abroad to get back certainly looks like the borders are closing. My lass has now been told no work for at least two months. I'm a key worker so will still have to work.

I just thought I'd give you all a little update on how I've felt and feel at the moment and a bit of background and advice. 

I started with a little bit of a temperature on Friday night. Woke up Saturday not feeling quite my usual self but not ill. Went to sleep again around late morning for a couple of hours and when I woke up I felt absolutely shocking. I was burning up and aching everywhere. Just going for a pee was a struggle as was making soup etc and that's the only time I've been out of bed for 3 days. 

Friends told me to ring 111 so last night I did. I was told that I'd get a call back from the corona virus specialist team within 2 hours. I understand that they are incredibly busy but it 7 hours late and my phone rang 3 times and went off before I could answer. They then rang back again at about ten past 5 this morning. To be blunt, the advice I was given was shocking and it went against all the advice I've read about and been told to follow. 

So I spoke to my GP's receptionist today and they advised me to phone 999. This way they can have a look at me and also, because this is the only way you'll be tested, to have the test. 

I've read a great piece if advice from a nurse in London which should be rolled out everywhere. After reading that advice I should have phoned 999 on Saturday when my temperature first hit the roof. 

If you are in an at risk group like me and you get the same symptoms I suggest you ring 999. Even if you test negative and they let you go home you're better safe than sorry. It could be that they offer advice or an ambulance on its way but the advice given to me by 111 was wrong. 

Stay safe Shaymen.

The selfish thick idiots have brought this lockdown on themselves. Like big babies they just can't heed advice. I hope they suffer and they're bored $**t less.  

How bloody hard can it be to stay in. If you do go out then stay distances between eachother. They're going to be the first ones to moan, just you watch.  

Spoilt brats who have never had hardship and have had it all on a plate. Had their backside wiped all their life. Crying because they can't get a Big Mac from McDonald's or clogging up the McDonald's today for one final time. Infected loads because they wanted a burger and havery been brainwashed by consumerism. 

Anyway. I know most on here have taken advice and acted sensible thoughout. Stay safe. Peace and love to yous all.

The trouble is that I took on the advice and apart from nipping to my local supermarket I've been in for over in for over 8 days now. But despite that it really does look like I've got it. 

But I do agree with you that too many people aren't taking it seriously and if they don't then more people will die and it'll take much longer for things to get back to normal.

Sobering stat, It took 67 days from the first reported case to reach the first 100,00 cases, 11 days for the second 100,000 and just four days for the third 100,000.

That's sheer bad luck and I hope you make a speedy recovery mate. 

I'm just fed up with selfish pricks spoiling it for the rest. Spreading it round. Queuing up to get in the acca on Friday night. 

They're going to be the first to moan. And over trivial non essential rubbish like a big Mac and a nandos. 

See that whopper Sam Smith the other day? Crying coz he had to stayou in home!!

Well that's it. Finally he has got tough on people. Now these rules need to be enforced to the letter. The parents of little feral chavs need to be slapped with a fine time and again to stop them. 

For people like me though and indeed others in key work areas I still dont think it has gone far enough. Limitations of people in Supermarkets needs to be brought in aswell. Just because we work in key areas doesn't mean we deserve to put at risk. As tough as it may be people need to be given shopping slots. How easy that is to do I dont know

I drove past Colton MacDonalds tonight and the queue for the Dickheads to get in was causing traffic tailbacks  - how sad is it that people cannot forgo having a burger for a period of time.:doh:

In my experience of dealing with this in animals, treatment as soon as possible is essential with extremely powerful drugs . Sometimes strong steroids are also required . It's a waste of time pussy footing about with off the shelf treatments (though don't rule them out because they may be all that's available to you so that might be the only course you can follow) or penicillin based treatments because they don't work

I'm taking a new treatment that alters part of my immune system and in turn makes me more at risk of catching colds and flu. Which this virus essentially is. I really didn't want to catch it so that's why I self isolated before. But after reading blogs of people that have had it and who are now fine, some people had it for 3 or 4 days without showing any symptoms. So perhaps I caught it earlier? 

I'll never know but I must say that I've not been tested and that I don't have a yes or no diagnosis as most people don't. The only way you can get tested is if you're admitted into hospital. 

This needs to change ASAP and the government need to roll out those tests. 

It'll be a game changer.

I've been taking paracetamol and drinking plenty of fluid. Despite having a temperature I've still stayed in bed where its warm. Don't be fooled into trying to cool down too much because the virus has to come out of you some how and you'll need to sweat it out. 

I still feel rough but its the best I've felt since Friday morning.

Very hard for people who suffer from Claustrophobia, 10% of the population can suffer from this at some point in their lifetime.
