I have now received my anti-viral meds (Paxlovid) from West Moreton Covid Virtual team (Ipswich Hospital)
Impressive, 15 hours from first test.
I had to do another supervised RAT online. Neat system. PCR result still to come.
My RATs are reacting positive in about 15 secs! Day 2, completed my first full day Paxlovid.
Feeling OK, have symptoms bad cold/flu like illness. Sore throat, just a bit unwell. Able to exercise lightly. Having covid vax by 5 helps ( I am at risk ).
PCR result not through. We all need to mask.
One way masking not enough. Image
