So how is this useful? From this table any cold, but especially flu could be mistaken for Covid-19.

Every symptoms is either common, reported or present, with the exception of single symptom 'extreme exhaustion'.Even then, if you've had a cold all day and been doing a labour intensive or exhaustive job, the symptom would still be present, even though not as a direct result of the cold.

On a somewhat vaguely related note, I do wish reputable website started reporting concise or informative news rather than tabloid sensationalism, irrelevant, regurgitated stuff and all just because they wanna appear ahead of the curve or sound like they know what they're talking about.

The reality is very simple, symptoms vary in people and that people should be taking precautions by social isolation/distancing, boosting their immune system by exercising & eating healthy, cleaning surfaces , washing hands etc. and the only time they need to worry, is just like any other scenario, when the condition becomes life threatening. That is when they need to be admitted to hospital, fully informing the medical staff of your conditions/symptoms prior to going to hospital.


Personally, I've blocked all media outlet because I'm sick of hearing about it. The only person of note worth listening to is Dr John Campbell on YouTube. I find him to be fairly informative and up to date with relevant information in relation to the virus.

It is useful in the sense that the flu season has almost gone, so now if anyone has these symptoms, they should take precautions.

Hayfever is also eminent, so those with regular hay-fever should also be cautious because they can still spread the virus believing its just their hay-fever.

And, I shared it because every little helps.

My rant was directed at the webMD website. If people suspect any symptoms, they should self isolate. If they're not sure ring the pointless 111 NHS line.

111 NHS phone line gets reset because it cannot cope so no point in ringing it, I know that for a fact.

Phone line is indeed useless because nobody is answering!

The only option is the website here:


111.nhs.uk/covid-19

You missed the word "allegedly" .
Would not be surprised if his spin doctors decided that him pretending to have corona, would be good for his public image.

Very true. A lot of the other politicians are coming forward as allegedly being positive with the virus too.

Firstly I wonder where they’re getting these tests from?

Secondly why are they being given priority testing over frontline workers?

Politics and politicians never is as what it seems.

Yes that and most likely it’s to do with priority, however everyone’s priority is different. As a layperson my priority would be different then that of a person in power. Although I do feel ppl in the frontline should be priority. The government is not short of appointing people to take the lead.

I’m not saying it was wrong that they got tested, I believe if tests were available which there clearly was. Frontline workers should be tested too.

Most people think leaders make decisions in fact they can have there influence in certain agendas. Otherwise there is already a set government in the background who continue to work towards advising and making decisions regardless of which party and leader comes into power.

Along with India it seems that US and UK aren't handling the crisis seriously.

I just saw this tweet:

"20 flights arrived yesterday into London from NY.

▪️There was no social distancing on the plane
▪️No checks when they arrived.
▪️these passengers dispersed, many to the Tube.

Meanwhile police drones threaten sole walkers in the Peak District.

Utter nonsense."

How can there still be no checks on arriving passengers to at least detect those with fever or other symptoms? How can they just go on public transport? Not sure if it would be feasable to quarantine such a large number of passengers for two weeks, but that is what should be done.

Is that tweet fact or fiction though? (Serious question)

US is still definitely not taking it seriously enough that's a fact.
Trump has gotten more serious recently, but he's still not serious enough.
