We are getting her tested today and wll get the result in a couple of days. They are coming here to test her as we don't have a car so can't go to a drive through testing centre. We won't be tested as it just for the person with symptoms.

She does have a cough but hopefully that's all it is and it's not the dreaded Coronavirus.

Just out of interest Norpig, how are the results of the test given to you? E-mail, phone call?

They rang me first and then sent out a confirmation email. The whole process only took 48 hours so can't complain.

Glad it’s turned out negative again Norpig. I did think we had a test that gave results in around 20 mins but looks like I’m incorrect on that.

I don't think you are.

I'm certain I've read also that there were two tests for seeing if people 'have' it (as opposed to the thing in the papers now about the test to find out if people HAD it) and the swab tests took about 48 hours but blood tests around 20 mins.

I'm guessing the blood tests are done in hospitals though because they can't wait 48 hours but in the community people can isolate whilst they await the results.

It doesn't surprise me one bit. People don't give a shit until it hits them or their loved ones.

And another thing. Why does everything the government bring in have to happen in a week or two?

If you have to wear face masks, wear them from today, not next week. If you're having a quarantine start it immediately.

Probably so people can arrange to get what they need.

Why did people feel the need to queue hours before opening time just to get in Primark or Sports Direct?

Were they desperate to get some low priced knickers or football socks?

I bet TROY was in the queue.

Some good news for a change!

Dexamethasone is first life-saving coronavirus drug

Extract from the article -

In the trial, led by a team from Oxford University, around 2,000 hospital patients were given dexamethasone and were compared with more than 4,000 who did not receive the drug.
For patients on ventilators, it cut the risk of death from 40% to 28%. For patients needing oxygen, it cut the risk of death from 25% to 20%.
Chief investigator Prof Peter Horby said: "This is the only drug so far that has been shown to reduce mortality - and it reduces it significantly. It's a major breakthrough."
Lead researcher Prof Martin Landray says the findings suggest that for every eight patients treated on ventilators, you could save one life.
For those patients treated with oxygen, you save one life for approximately every 20-25 treated with the drug.
"There is a clear, clear benefit. The treatment is up to 10 days of dexamethasone and it costs about £5 per patient. So essentially it costs £35 to save a life. This is a drug that is globally available."
Prof Landray said, when appropriate, hospital patients should now be given it without delay, but people should not go out and buy it to take at home.
Dexamethasone does not appear to help people with milder symptoms of coronavirus - those who don't need help with their breathing.
