Today is my daughter’s two year #covidversary. She was 16 when she infected, and I fought hard to get her tested. Everyone said kids don’t get #COVID. But I knew they were wrong. Because I was looking at a kid with COVID. 1/
I decided to make her story public, because I knew that if my child was sick & couldn’t get tested, then there were many other families in the same boat.… 2/
We finally were able to test on day 14 of her illness, and day 5 of mine because I was high risk due to having MS. My test was positive. But Molly tested negative, because we missed the testing window. I had wanted her case counted, but it never was. 3/

Well that was a slap in the face. We were falling ill, dying or developing #LongCovid despite washing our hands till they bled. I was saying #COVIDisAirborne- why wouldn’t a respiratory virus be? Nobody around me listened at the time. The droplet lobby’s narrative persisted 1/n
I caught #Covid_19 in Nov 2020 working on a respiratory ward with a surgical mask & flimsy apron. There was no shortage of airborne #PPE at the time. But of course we had to be slaves to guidelines, no matter how idiotic they were. 1500 HCW & social worker deaths in the #NHS 2/n
Now the govt recognises airborne transmission. Apparently though in healthcare facilities the virus decides not to behave this way. @NHSEngland @UKHSA @DHSCgovuk @MFTnhs nothing short of MANDATORY airborne PPE for confirmed or suspected #Covid_19 cases is enough. Get it? 3/n

Yesterday was my #covidversary. It's been one yr since my partner @israelfloresta & I got covid19.

We both tested negative. Now, we both have #longCOVID.

Here are some thoughts about this experience 👇🏽

I have a PhD in biology, I work with infectious diseases and I have done thousands of PCRs in my lifetime.

Yet, processing the implications of a (-) test while being ravaged by brain fog was humbling to say the least.

#1year1virus #longCOVID
We had access to testing early on because I was fully symptomatic and @israelfloresta was an essential worker. By the time we received the test result and it was (-), we were both getting worse. Our symptoms were dismissed and we were declined a 2nd test.
