Yeah I got tested because I woke up with severe congestion, complete loss of smell and partial loss of taste. My friend whom I went riding with last Saturday tested positive earlier this week so it was enough to warrant testing and thus positive.
I definitely dropped a good few stone but it's leg muscle tone rather than the gut I think.No fair joining the Yak Weight Loss Challenge like that.
"Despite the two allergy cases the Government is today continuing to vaccinate between 5,000 and 7,000 people per day across the UK".
Sounds a good deal safer than the virus to me.
The Canadian health authority has preemptively warned that they will be asking Canadians to continue to physical distance and continue mask-wearing for a while after our own vaccine roll-out is complete, for that exact reason. Vaccination makes you more resistant, and less likely to be communicable, but you can still carry the virus, therefore could still carry it to people who have not yet* been immunized. Once enough people are vaccinated, and remain so, transmission should tank, assuming this behaves remotely like any other coronavirus.On the other hand though, if vaccinated people can still spread the virus asymptomatically, they could be more dangerous in some ways. Less likely to cough, yes, but they would still be breathing and wouldn't have warning to self-isolate.
