The more I read about this condition the more I suspect I may already have had it :

In the last week of January this year I contracted 'the flu'.

It was the worst example of flu I can recall in my lifetime.

My symptoms exactly matched those of the coronavirus that I have subsequently seen published in recent weeks. What has made me even more suspicious is that a family member - whose birthday we had attended in January - had recently spent some time in China although I feel the timeframe is a little suspect for the virus to have survived that long.

I did not see a doctor but was 'man down' for fully 8 days. In the early phases I struggled to contain a raging fever which persisted for about 4 days before it eventually broke. The overall condition lasted about 12 days before I felt reasonably well again.

As I work from home it was easy to rest up without interacting with other people. The week after I fell ill my partner went through the same experience although she recovered a lot faster than I did.

Just wondering.

Sounds like man-flu.

But you won’t know until you see a Dr.

Over the festive in Scotland, we caught very bad coughs in last few days ( i actually broke a rib) and only feeling better over the last few weeks.
We went for a few Chinese meals in the last week before getting on the plane.

Dear Mary : do you think we had the virus? Plus is it safe to go do restaurants or get take aways?

only a blood test for antibodies against the virus will tell if you had exposure - think I read somewhere that it is available but not here yet

If it was that virus, then I see it as a positive...you all recovered. Which is good news!
