Have had this bad cold for about 2 weeks, symptoms which also equate to the latest ones for omicron. My wife managed to get a pack of lateral flow test kits. I did the test today, and it came back negative, so that is a good result. Just have to ride out this cold now and catch up with things I have not had the energy to do.
It is my birthday tomorrow and I have had to put off a special curry night planned by my daughter as I did not want to pass on my cold, but am pleased that it is just a cold. Have followed the test instructions and notified the health authorities of my test results as requested. Hope that 2022 will see the back of the pandemic, and we can all get back to a healthier environment.
