5) weight loss - ten months of lockdown/self-imposed self-isolation, I lost about half a stone in weight. Not through more exercise, but perhaps from eating less and/or healthier (almost all meals cooked from mostly fresh ingredients?). Since covid last month I lost another half a stone or more, but in the last week have stabilised and even gained a couple of pounds. Still a couple of stones overweight for height ;)
3) various mild gastro-intestinal complaints, occasional acid reflux at night, eating well now, but/and often feeling ravenously hungry especially during the night (all of above leading to disturbed sleep, increased fatigue, of course).
4) appetite returning, but can't face a curry or anything too spicy. Most I have managed and enjoyed is avocado with chilli, and omelette with chilli. Cheese is perfect with everything!
Coronavirus Day 33:
1) mild fatigue - can stay up for 12 hours straight and do washing up, cook simple meal, ensure kid and baby don't injure themselves, feed kid and baby, empty bins (with mask), put groceries away, etc. But feel devoid of energy and feeling like I need to lie down (not necessarily to sleep).
2) feel like I have a constant cold - runny/blocked nose, occasional crackly cough, 'fuzzy' head (not my hair), run down - but this is likely just the post-viral fatigue?

COVID why terminology really, really matters
As I write this there have been, according to the WHO, 25 million cases and 850,000 deaths. That is a case fatality rate of more than 3%. 10x as high
Why are these figures so all over the place? It is because we are using horribly inaccurate terminology. We are comparing apples with pomegranates to tell us how many bananas we have. Our experts are essentially, talking gibberish, and the mainstream media is lapping it up.
