Probably best not to start this quite yet, as many (if not all) of the people replying NO will have it soon enough, and the poll would be skewed quite quickly.

I suggested a thread for people that have COVID-19, just for informational purposes.

I am guessing some have and have had little symptoms or a cold. I'd bet than 1000's at least have had in in the u.s. Probably many many thousands. Time will tell.

Might me like in the 50's where if a kid got chicken pox, parents would take their kid over to get it. Might be a good idea not. Obviously it has not muted in the u.s. yet to become deadly yet. Get heard immunity before it does.

The 50s? We even did it in the 80s then everybody started being pussies and want to get stuck with needles the rest of their life instead of getting sick for a week one and done for life.

Possibly, some people that tested positive didn't show any symptoms.

And now all of those people get shingles. Awesome times.

While rare, complications of varicella and shingles can be horrible. Mostly shingles is just really uncomfortable.

Damn right I got my kid vaccinated against it. Why would I want him to experience that?

Where is the I have no idea because I have not been tested option?

Not me but this morning I talked to a friend in the UK who is certain he had it. Couldn't get tested by NHS because he couldn't verify he had contact with a 'certified' victim. He said it was pretty bad but is ok now. Still feels beat up.

Not yet...... There is a person at my work that was in contact with a person that has/had it. Said employee is now quarantined at home and waiting to find out if they have it. Only a matter of time before it spreads around at my work is my guess. I work for Siemens, a global company and we have all races/nationalities coming through here.

Going to be honest, i'm a little stressed about COVID-19 as my wife has reduced immunity due to ongoing cancer treatment, and is showing cold/flu like symptoms. Now this is likely because we had a week away in Morocco coming back this past weekend and she normally gets a post flight cold, however what if?

We have spoken to her specialist who instructed isolation for a 5 days before being tested, so i'm a little tense at the moment!!!

Two of my best unintentional moves before the sh1t hit the fan
1 - Did our 2-3 month toilet roll and bulk foods shop at Costco before going on holiday.
2 - Bought 2ltr of hand sanitiser for less than 10 from a local drug store and some empty travel bottles as travel sized hand sanitiser is like mermaid shin pads at the moment!

I have a mild cold which is being slowly killed off by Gin!

anglo You need a 3rd option in the poll, just for our US members: "How the Fuck would I know, I cant get tested."

Got something stuck in my throat this morning at work and I coughed and I swear all my coworkers had a freaking heart attack as they all ran for cover!

Positive vibes to you and the missus, Ant. Here's hoping it's just a cold, my friend. Hang in there.

I got the corona virus, was tested a week and a half ago.

BUT














its covid-15 , the older strain which is not as bad as the current strain, my kids brought it home as they usually do with other viruses\germs and spread the love. I wonder if it helps getting the old version before you are exposed to the new one.

My wife got a different version a couple of years ago. At first we could not figure it out but because she is immune-compromised, taking Cyclosporine and Prednisone daily for a transplant, we watch her carefully and I could not get her temp to normal and it was spiking to 103 even after Tylenol. Took her into emergency and after a 4 hour wait, was able to get a room about 2 AM. Went home, came back the next morning and she had the beginnings of pneumonia. Placed on Oxygen. Touch and go the next two days as her lungs were filling with fluid, finally drained off with Lazix but was in there 5 days and came home really sick and weak.

She had a flu shot and taken Tamiflu to no avail, tested negative for flu several times and they finally deduced it was a Corona Virus. Let me tell you something-it was very serious and of course super worried she might end up with #19. I thought she might be a goner it was so bad. We received great care but it totally disrupted our lives for about 3 weeks.Don't mess with it.
