Oh dear JP.  Have you got a temperature or aches and pains. 

It could be the flu.  Both my husband and son have had streaming colds, but no cough or temperature.

Are on your own??

Hi Shadyglade, I have the dry cough, and temperature up a little today. Other symptoms are sore throat and runny nose. I do feel a bit steam-rollered! There's no way of knowing what this is, but if it's a cold it's a real humdinger.

I am on my own, but able to totter about and look after myself.

Thanks for asking.

Maybe have a look at your local Facebook grpup. There are people on ours volunteering to help those who can't go out. I hope it turns out just to be a sniffle but just in case...

  Sounds more like a nasty cold.  Hope you feel better soon.

I don't yet know anyone with Corona or who has contacts with it.

Not yet.  I hope that I will be outside the 80% that may be afflicted.

My colds begin with an itchy left arm.  3 days later : Dry throat. Itchy ears and nose.  Streaming cold.  Sometimes a cough.

Do you have a thermometer thingy to check?

The main symptoms they are looking for are dry cough/high temperature. It can present with sore throat and runny nose in addition, and even nausea. If you are fit you can get away with mild symptoms or even none. I'm 70 with no underlying conditions and reasonably fit, so in a way it would be nice to get it out of the way, but I'll never know one way or the other.

I've just heard that a prison warder at High Down prison in Banstead has tested positive. That is about 5 miles from here, so we have it close by.

Yes CLKD, I have a thermometer thingy  ;). Seem to have everything I need to hand, but could do with a new body just now  ;D. I'm also lucky to be able to take a short walk in green areas without much chance of meeting anybody, so will be able to maintain a safe distance when I feel ready to go out.

Hello Joaniepat

I suppose without testing it's impossible to know if you have the virus or not.

If you do have it I hope it is a mild case and that you feel better soon.

Take care.

K.
