COVID-19 presenting as acute pancreatitis

OK there is a lot of variability of the symptoms presented in Covid 19, so reading this some symptoms matched mine, but the recovery from the acute pancreatitis part even surprised the doctors.

Went shopping today for the first time in three months.  b....r that for a game of soldiers.  I'm exhausted.  And I'm not doing that again in a hurry if I can possibly avoid it.

And my glasses kept on fogging up over the mask, so I couldn't see what I was doing.

What kind of mask do you have, Eleanor - the disposable ones or a cloth one?

I've tried both and prefer the disposable ones as they have a wire at the top which you need to press down over your nose and under the eyes. When glasses fog up, breath is escaping over the top (and presumably the space could let droplets in).

I've got both, but it was a cloth one.  Thanks for the tip.

Put the lid down on the toilet before flushing is the latest advice.
Or so I have just read on the BBC news....must be true!
Deal with the failings of others as gently as with your own.

"Coronavirus 'major breakthrough' - cheap drug reduces deaths among sickest"
https://youtu.be/T7cY8y5gk5M
" a common steroid called dexamethasone, that costs just £5 for an entire course of treatment, has been shown to cut the risk of death by a third for Covid patients on ventilators."  Amazing!

PM says face masks ‘should be worn’ in shops

The prime minister said the government would decide in the next few days if "tools of enforcement" were needed.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-53388444

Having spent the past 5 months not wearing a face mask in shops, & now that the infection rate & death rate is decreasing, isn't it just common sense that now is the time to start enforcing the wearing of masks when shopping??!! *%87

I'm simply not going shopping if I'll be forced to wear a muzzle, I'll do all my shopping online thankyou very much.

And what about the restaurants & pubs, surely these places should have mandatory face mask rules also?
Just keep pulling your mask up every time you take a fork full, then lower your mask whilst chewing.
