COVID-19 Testing

trying something or someone to see if the rules are being obeyed

Out on my walk this morning I saw that a mass testing operation for COVID-19 had been set up in one of the local car parks, (otherwise completely unused).  These testing stations are manned by heath workers and the army, and each one is a pretty big operation.

In the half hour or so I had this testing facility in sight, not one single car entered the parking lot so that the driver could be tested for the coronavirus.  Goes completely against the rule of build it and they will come.  This time nobody turned up at all.

I’m utterly unsurprised.  There is very little personal benefit to going through all the hassle and discomfort of the whole ‘getting tested’ process.  In fact there are a lot of individual downsides to having a coronavirus test, and I speak as a guy who has both had the virus and been tested more than once.  (After the fact.)

Being tested will not stop you contracting COVID-19, nor will it aid your recovery in any way at all.  Being tested is just likely to make you sicker because it is very likely you will to told to undergo a period of self-isolation at home, which is bad.  What is worse it that you will be carted off to hospital and stuck in a bed in a place that is rife with the damn virus.  If you are sick, (not dying), then the last thing you need is to be stuck next to a lot of other sick people.

The very best thing you can do to ameliorate any personal effects of the coronavirus is to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, which the virus hates.  The sunshine will boost your vitamin D, which the virus hates.  The fresh air will flush out your lungs, so FFS do not wear a mask.  However, stay away from other people, you don’t know if they’re a carrier, and neither will they.

When you’re out there get some exercise ~ don’t just sit in the sunshine, complete the 10,000 steps a day challenge.  Exercise will improve your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and if you’re stronger and fitter you will more easily fight off the virus if you get it.

The fresh air, sunshine, and exercise will also give you an appetite ~ believe me, it you get the damn virus you will not want to eat, and even less so if all you do all day is sit in front of the TV.  With your meals take a good and appropriate range of vitamin and mineral supplements.  Your body will need these to fight off the virus.

Trust me, for your own personal health, being tested for COVID-19 is the last thing you want.

  1. I am positive I’ve had it already from way back in January being the first time. I keep getting it or feeling it’s affects. Not sure if I have permanent damage or am just highly susceptible to it.

    I agree though. Sunlight and fresh air are imperative. And why bother getting tested. I would get tested for antibodies but more so out of curiosity. But now they’re saying the antibodies are not permanent so 🤷🏽‍♀️

    1. The effects go on and on and on. It seems you can feel great for a while, and then the damn thing will catch up with you.
      I’ve been told the test for antibodies is very inaccurate, so why bother.
      Be well Sweetheart 🌹🌺🌹


  2. I haven’t been tested. I try to stay away from people as much as possible to avoid the possibility of catching the virus 😷

  3. So far we have not “taken the test” nor plan too. We are both in the older age group. I have more than one underlying health issue and simply need to avoid catching this thing.
