It was only through one of those Wiki rabbit holes I found out about it, North Sea Flood 1953 - MV Princess Victoria sinking led me finally to this page on wiki... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_disasters_in_Great_Britain_and_Ireland_by_death_toll

Is sudden fatigue and chest tightness a symptom of the new strain? I've felt awful today and even a 15 minute walk was rather too much. I am supposed to be moving out of the country on the weekend, oh joy

Press Association reporting analysis of govt figures shows deaths involving COVID have now passed 100,000. World beating.

the 'good' news is that the figures are starting to come down over the last 4 days. or at least stableised


it's still very, very high. and deaths stats will lag. but at least it's going in the right direction for now

The country is fucked. Pure and simple.

There is a morsel of positive news, maybe.  The upward trend in infections seems to have stalled.  Too early to call a trend, but maybe the beginning of something.

If true, it may mean that we are hopefully no more than a week or so away from peak hospitalisations.

Hope everyone reading this is safe & well.

No need for quotes, that's just good news. But 100k deaths is a grim milestone and a massive marker of how badly the govt have completely failed to protect the country. Some of the worst death figures and the worst economic damage of any Western nation. That's quite some going.

Get yourself tested ASAP, mate.  Just to be sure.

40k+ positive cases per day deserves quotes.

Swindon was hitting near 200 a day, is now down to 110 or so a day. hopefully the gwh will feel the relief in the next week or so

This appears to show an overall downward trend in 7 day case average since 1st Jan for Swindon.
Probably won't feel like that in GWH just yet.

Hi Matchworn Shirts

I have very little experience of Covid19 or what it feels like.

But I do have experience of a Heart event that happened to me some 4 years ago which resulted in having two stents being installed.

Please do the right thing and go to hospital as your symptoms sound very similar to mine were.

Stay well my friend

Good luck

hi buddy.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling great.
As you know symptoms of Covid are fatigue but also a new side variant of this new strain is the high risk of PE's. Pulmonary Embolism. These can be mimicked as heart issues but can be combined with being mistaken with the fatigue part of the virus. If your breathing becomes heavy or you have a feeling of not being able to grab a full breath it's worth going to your local hospital.

Only you know how you feel but you must take this virus serious.
Remember 111 for advise.
Hope you feel better soon.

Anyone who 'thinks' they have symptoms, should get a test.

It's better to be safe than sorry and reduce the risk of infecting others.

Don't feel guilty for booking and thinking it's not it.
