Did I see the news correctly that the US had over 1 million positive cases reported in a day?

Donít know if this is new cases or positive results, but thatís a lot of cases

Sadly the spare has been secured already. I am absolutely gutted for you China Red after taking all the precautions to avoid Covid as well! As I said on Watsapp at least you'll have Liverpool away to look forward to in Round 4!

I cannot believe you offered to do all the house work for a year to your wife so she would join you and prevent anyone on here sitting next to you  Cheesy

Yes, but it's pretty similar to the UK when you adjust for population.  Both world leading (if you just looked at cases)

So it transpires we have probably had Covid in the house but not known about it. Other half was rough before Christmas and GP suggested she take a PCR, which she did and it came back clear. She slowly got better over Christmas (well more new year really) and is not so bad now although she still has a thumping sore throat and is knackered, so back to the doctors this morning. Long and short Doc cannot see any evidence of a throat infection or anything and has now concluded that she probably has had it but the PCR gave a false negative so who knows - main (only in fact) thing is that she is OK!

On small persons return to school it seems most of the village was isolating over Christmas, but thankfully all seem to be OK.

False negative rate on PCR is so low as to be unlikely isn't it?

Who knows, from the interweb...

'Sensitivity of PCR testing in the real world (taking into consideration the likelihood of the virus getting onto the swab) is only of the order of 70%. It misses (gives false negative results) in about 30% of people who do actually have the virus, and who may be contagious.'

Also worth bearing in mind that its very dependent upon getting the swab right, my missus is very diligent but she was still an amateur sticking a swab down her own throat.

Thing is, both our little lass and I (after she had tested negative) had mild same albeit only for a day or two, and in each case and just put it down to having what she had which as she had tested negtive we assumed was just a crappy cold (LFT's were clear for us all over xmas on the incredibly rare occasions we mixed and that was only with wifes family who seemed similarly coldy and are Ok). Who knows, I do wonder if the kids have spread it around at school as it seems to have rattled through the parents over Christmas!

Was a bit sniffly while I was in Florida. Decided to get a lateral flow test, which took a few days, and was positive. Got a PCR the next day confirming it, but by that time 5 days had past which the CDC recommends from when symptoms start. The next day had another lateral flow and it was negative, confirmed by another one the day after.

Really strange. My wife was with me the whole time and didn't test positive. I was with 20+ people on Christmas day and only 1 has tested positive since. If it was Omnicron then it was really very mild.
