I'm Doomed

However someone hit it on the head, she misses the gossip and disappears frequently, masked and gelled up, to talk to our one neightbour. She insists they talk from 10 feet apart and both have masks, but it makes me worry if all the other efforts could be in vain for the sake of a chat..

 

I am working on this ............

If one can't offer the same level of parochial and witless wittering that is their lifeblood and I think that most of us can't, then one simply has to suck it up.

To be 100% safe, she should be taking off her clothes and washing them immediately when she gets home.

Seriously, reported it may stick to clothes, masks, surfaces etc.

Your wife is doing you a huge favour.

 

The sooner you're infected the sooner you'll be immune. 

 

That's how the virus will end, everyone will get it and everyone will be immune.

 

Social distancing is an illusion, as we see once again here. Can't work, won't work. People have to eat. Some have to work.

You wont be 100% immune and it might damage your lungs.

 

Id rather not get it or get it in 4 or 5 months when they might have drugs on the market to treat it better. The clinical trials will tell us if the anti malaria and hiv drugs work in combo. All being fast tracked.

It's a problem for those with girlfriends, wives, families, double triple quadruple risk, hard to control other people, don't worry it's not the end of the world...

Grow a pair, and educate your wife. Tell her the ATM will only be open every third day.

She has her own money, I like the every third day idea though

Not to mention that some "expert" on CNN says there is a risk of re-infection, that recovery does not mean automatic immunity.

You may be right, but somehow I'm having a bit of a problem with being grateful.

Smart people go once a week. Why would you go 21 times? Just asking to be sick.

To be fair, she went 3 times yesterday but generally only once or twice.

You will be 100% immune, maybe forever, maybe for a limited time, but you will be immune. Unless you're an unfortunate exception.

 

It might damage your lungs if you're one of the relatively small number who die. If you survive you may not damage your lungs in a serious way.

 

Of course you're right, it's better to get it for the individual when a treatment is available. The odds that you can choose the timing are exceptionally small though. It will get you one way or the other. You may already have it and not know it.

Re-infection has happened. But those are very isolated and rare exceptions.

 

Prof Jon Cohen, emeritus professor of infectious diseases at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, said: "However, it is very likely, based on other viral infections, that yes, once a person has had the infection they will generally be immune and won’t get it again. There will always be the odd exception, but that is certainly a reasonable expectation."

 

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/16/the-big-question-over-coronavirus-can-a-person-get-it-twice

 

Much more likely is that you'll be immune.

You claim that someone getting the virus will then be immune, where did you find that info?

Only last week, there was a news report about a Chinese lady, who got the virus a second time.

I understand. Though if you do get it, she will be the one to nurse you. If it gets serious maybe she'll be asked if the medics should switch the machine off. Maybe not a bad idea to be nice to her.
