    Default For the COVID dimwits on this forum - I'm sure you know who you are

    Cease your unintelligent brain farting and read this paper. Even though it's not peer reviewed, rightly or wrongly, it's the paper that most govt. policy is now based on.
    The govt having backtracked on its "herd immunity" theory a week or so ago.

    We actually read it a week ago when it was first released.

    Now as we all know what you actually spend you time doing on the computer () please go and wash your hands again before cleaning out Tasmin's pony as I told you to earlier...

    Or ... we read it, and didn't just panic and look at the big numbers, but read the words that went with the numbers

    No one with a brain on here takes you seriously any more.
    Remember, if you have a fluctuating fever and severe dry cough, under no circumstances use the 111 service

    That's actually the correct advice. You shouldn't be calling 111 if you just have the cough and a light fever.

    If you have severe (note: severe) shortness of breath and have difficulty breathing properly then call the 111 service. Except: you can call, but you'll either have your call dropped or will be on hold for hours upon hours, as I've experienced today. I was even hung up on by the system whilst on hold for two hours.

    Perhaps idiots calling up with just basic symptoms but no shortness of breath shouldn't be calling after all. There's no need for them to do so.

    The advice is to only call 111 if you can't cope, otherwise stay at home, self isolate, and stop wasting people's time.

    Or maybe just flounce about and call them anyway as you're an attention seeker

    My advice is, stop being a little princess and MTFU.

    As for people taking me seriously ... I don't care. I don't know anyone on here and couldn't give two hoots whether anyone listens to me or not. It's my choice to post tulip, and it's everyone's choice whether they read this or not. It bothers me not either way

    but, but, but, SAS is really clever and knows best .... he's allowed to call and waste scarce NHS resources, whilst complaining on here about the scarce NHS resources and the impact of this on fighting the virus
