Hands up if you caught Covid there?

Have slept 15+ hours a day, lots of couging and feeling very dazed. Not much good for anything but lying in bed, watching TV and a bit of web browsing.

Yep, same symptoms and have a +ve test too. Brain feels on fire, which is odd, other symptoms are just like a bad cold though.

I work with vulnerable older people, clearly the boosters aren't holding up against this strain after 6 months so yes, to the dickhead above, I will be taking care to stop it spreading. And yes I would do that if I was negative and it was a bad flu for the same reasons, isn't that what being part of a community is all about?

Amazing that you can come back from a festival like glastonbury and not pick up on a single one of the 'we're all in this together' messages!

God, covid debate really brings out the worst in people. 

It is fine to be angry with the media for sensationalising and creating fear and doom mongering. It is fine to be angry with the government for their mishandling of the pandemic and blatant corruption over the past 2 years handing multi million contracts to their mates. 
 

It is not fine to speak to people like shit and throw venomous or derogatory insults at them because they decided to take a covid test, or because they want to take precautions. 
 

But its okay for them to throw insults at people saying they don't see a point in testing ?   Surely both view points deserve to be aired without being called a dickhead / c**t etc ?

All those testing to protect others absolute hero’s in my eyes …. Wether it be someone you know or someone you don’t that’s vulnerable in society , we have a tool we can use for covid at least . Nice one for being socially responsible and looking out for others . I choose my risk by going and getting covid … many others didn’t ….. anyways fortunately I don’t seem to have things too bad … cough has definately eased today a few night sweats last night hopefully an upward path from now 

Glad it’s not been too bad and when this bout of Covid passes you can get back to living without having to worry about it any more. 
 

As should the vast majority of people under the age of 70.

Yeah I've got it, as have a few of our group. Definitely worse than the usual festival comedown. Would rather test and know I have it so I can adjust my life slightly to make sure others don't get ill. If everyone did that it would actually lower the chances of a lockdown.

Since it's pretty certain Covid will still be around next year and we now know there is a very good chance of catching it at Glastonbury I take it all you socially responsible people who don't want to spread it to other, more vulnerable people won't be going next year.

Day 3. Symptoms significantly reduced. Expect to be up and about tomorrow. 

Sadly need to avoid daughter who is off inter-railing at the weekend.

Same boat here. Feel almost 100% today except slight cough and am back to work.

Tested negative today so pretty sure I'm in the clear.  Bit annoying really, could have really done with another week off work to readjust to being in the real world again.

 

I don't see the problem with testing yourself.  It's not like people were picky about what they shoved up their nose over the festival so can't see why putting a swab up there causes so many issues

Negative test? A purple sharpie and you are sorted😉

my point is using a covid test as a green light to going out is really stupid - and so the test itself is pointless as you shouldn't be going out if ill full stop anyway.

I agree with this. Its concerning that so many think these tests are foolproof aswell when they're not. If I'm ill (as I am currently), I won't be going out because I feel crap. That's exactly how I would have behaved pre covid too, no test required.

What do you mean we 'now' know?

Do you mean in a post-festival oh what a surprise many people have caught covid I wasn't expecting that type way?

In that case why test? Your behaviour hasn't changed regardless of the result?

"we now know" as in the people of this forum, there's a difference in a theoretical danger and a confirmed fact, the results on here make it clear there is a very real chance of getting it again next year (assuming it doesn't die off in the meantime) so people would be making their decision to go on a proven fact rather than a theoretical danger.

Its all been a great example of how governments control people to the point they abandon all sense of reason and balance.  I just never thought it would take so long for people to reset back.   Testing made sense pre-vaccine and when people where shielding.  Not now...

Two forms of science really came to age during the pandemic.  The new vaccine platforms are tremendous.  But the behavioural science people @ SPI-B have proven that behavioural science has really come of age.  Its terrifying really when you join the dots.  Think what they could do next..

If they can manipulate what used to quite an anti state / government / big brother crowd like Glastonbury then Barbra down the road stood no chance.

I apologise for calling you a nob.  It must be absolutely terrifying to have to live within your head and I appreciate now that you are genuinely trying to help people.  I'm not sure what kind of help you need, but you have my sympathies.  Can anyone please offer suggestions for this (and others like him) poor person?

You clearly have no idea what he is talking about, do you know what SPI-B is?

Thanks for editing that - you nearly hurt my feels

I'm as susceptible to a 'nudge' as the next guy you know 😉

You see it throughout history that when this mass population control is deployed it results in anyone going against it facing marginalisation and abuse.  Its happening here right on this thread.   All pete can do is swear.  He won't even entertain the alternative view.

People need to wake up to what happened during the pandemic.  The science that was deployed to control them was powerful stuff.  There are regimes around the world who will be the same science to do countless awful things in the future.  Control isn't always good people.  Join the dots.  Its fucking important.
