WordPress seems to have got rid of its classic editor, and I have no idea how to use its new one, so this post will likely be a complete mess. I can’t seem to indent anything. Or add any tags.
In the latest hint that Trump’s condition may be more serious than his doctor and his team have let on, NBC News is reporting that the president has developed “shortness of breath” on top of the other symptoms listed earlier by his doctor – including a low grade fever.
Shortness of breath was what I had. Some days I was panting for breath for hours. It’s one of the Covid-19 symptoms. I had several other symptoms as well: e.g. diarrhoea. And I also now have a heart condition associated with Covid.
But that was back in January. What was I doing back then with Covid symptoms? The virus had been spreading in China for several months, but didn’t break out in the rest of the world until February.
My own belief is that, somehow or other, I was an early contractor of Covid-19. But how? I live alone, and don’t go out much, and hardly ever visit pubs (particularly in January now that smokers like me have been expelle). I was very unlikely to have got it
Either I got some other bug, or Covid was galloping round the world much faster than anyone knew.
If the latter, then it looks like the whole world got Covid at the same time, and that it wasn’t initially transmitted from person to person. It’s the sort of thing that would happen if the virus arrived from outer space, as suggested by Chandra Wickramasinghe.
I get the impression that the medical profession is completely foxed. They offer contradictory advice. Wear a mask. Don’t wear a mask. Lockdown. Don’t lockdown.
I haven’t really recovered from whatever it was I got. In fact I was in hospital for two weeks back in May. I don’t have as much energy as I used to have: it’s why I no longer post daily like I used to.
It’s said that Boris Johnson hasn’t really recovered from his bout of it either (see Mark Steyn talking to Tucker Carlson).
If so, it seems quite likely that Donald Trump won’t either. And he’s just 30 days away from an election.
God I hate this new editor.
