    We're the same - hibernating and waiting for the call to go and get the vaccine jab.

    Some friends that live nearby both have covid. Her husband, who is 80, was in hospital several weeks before Christmas with an infected heart valve. There was an outbreak of the virus in the cardiology ward and they quickly discharged any patients they could. Her husband was sent home, a couple of days before Christmas, even though he had tested POSITIVE! He said that he
    felt OK and has had no symptoms. They still had to visit hospital every other day to give him intravenous antibiotics to continue his treatment. But a week ago his wife went down with Covid symptoms and they both tested POSITIVE. The medics have since said that he is a super spreader and is still very infectious. So goodness knows how many people he has infected travelling backwards and forwards to hospital? Not his fault of course, as he isolated the required period at home.

    @Wynne71 I hope that both you and your wife make a full recovery. Everyone else out there - take care and stay safe.

    My Mrs is a teacher and caught it from a pupil at her school back in November, I then pretty much caught it from her within 24 hours. The lack of PPE in her school is shocking and staff were warned that disciplinary action could be taken against staff refusing to work :(

    Last week a teacher in a different class was sneezed on and today tested positive :mad:

    How unlucky you were!

    It is amazing that there is very little in some parts of the country and lots in others. Many cases in Oxford so we hear, but locally (8 miles from the city) only the pub landlord had it in April and a builder just down the road contracted it recently.
    Wife and I had to fill in the consent form online today asking us to consent to any of the 3 vaccines. We are waiting to hear further. Both of us are 79 and keeping out of everybody's way.

    Yes a speedy recovery to you both.

    Mrs Mad is a midwife and works in Manchester but caught covid the 1st time around. She has not been back to work since early April and has long covid. Can't do much around the house let alone walk the dog. She turned 50 last year. Lack of breath and brain fog are the hangovers. Hopefully it'll get out of her system and has been referred to a long covid clinic but I think this will take a while to sort out whilst everyone concentrates rightly on immunising everyone.

    BTW our Ctek 5 is getting some use atm

    I must have had some kind of prophetic foresight when I bought the CTEK, fully charged both cars and then we were both hit with the Covid bug. My wife’s car hasn’t moved in 11 days, mine for 7 days and counting. Mrs W has the go ahead to leave the house as of midnight today, she won’t be driving by al least she can go for a walk. I’m still sleeping most afternoons, the slightest bit of mental or physical activity drains the energy banks pretty quickly. Maybe I should plug the CTEK into myself.........

    Hope you both recover speedily and without long term issues.

    As to charging yourself. I sense you have an equivalent warning to some cars... "battery draining while stationary"... at least you know why.:D
