Sorry to read all the troubles and losses documented in this thread.
I got diagnosed positive 5 days ago. I went to a walk-in centre because I felt a bit under the weather but didn't have any covid specific symptoms. No fever, no cough. But positive anyway.
Since then I've had very slight symptoms: a little tired, an odd feeling in my throat, a slight headache. But I've been checking my temperature, blood oxygen levels and resting heartbeat and they're all fine. I'm working away at home, and exercising in the evenings. Today I feel fine.
I'm 56 and pretty healthy anyway, but probably very lucky. So for anyone testing positive, it doesn't necessarily have to be a bad experience.
My self-isolation finishes in 3 days. I'm just a bit nervous about going out and meeting people, especially elderly relatives. Is it really sure that we are no longer infectious 10 days after first symptoms?
Could you not go back to the walk in test centre and get tested again in 3 days to ease your mind?
