Just to put a real life scenario forward.I have self isolated since Tuesday when I had a dry intermittent cough (Not one where I was coughing my guts up).Wednesday got a few aches and mild headache and last night got feverish and had a temperature over 38. My symptoms are pretty close to those described for CV.My wife is exactly the same about a day behind. I know other people that have or have had the same.
Today totally devoid of energy. It is a bit like a mild flu if there is such a thing. In normal times I would have worked through it in the main, perhaps not today.
I am in my 60s with no major underlying health issues.
My situation as with others is not reported to the health authorities. The stats for the uk on Wednesday showed 66new cases and 65 recovered which is bollocks. It will only be when people like me get a test to see if we have had CV that a true picture will emerge.
Until then keep safe and if you get a cough no matter how mild self isolate to protect the old and vulnerable.
