    Free LFTs for over 75s from 1 Apr 22?

    Reading various sources leave me confused as to whether over 75s will still be eligible to get free lateral flow tests from 1 April. Some places say yes, others don't mention the over 75s. Does anyone know for certain, one way or the other? gov.uk doesn't seem much help on this point from...

    Rapid Covid 19 Test Question

    I have just been to a care home to visit a relative and had to do a rapid Covid 19 test before I entered. It was just one swab up each nostril then you give it back to the nurse and you wait outside for around 10-15 mins for the result. I was then given the test back in a silver bag and just 1...

    5 million children lost one caregiver

    https://www.covidcollaborative.us/assets/uploads/img/HIDDEN-PAIN-FINAL.pdf It a 80 page report, but Exec Summary is worth a read. 5 million estimated - a sobering fact (I think the number is somewhat of an under count). As the world at large is starting to relax on Covid-19 restrictions...

    So who has had it twice now?

    Seeing Starmer had Covid-19 again, and thinking it wasn’t that long since the last time, got me wondering if anyone here had Covid-19 more than once yet? How was it the second time around? How long was the gap between infections?

    Question about self isolation period and how long people are contagious for

    I would have thought by now this would be common knowledge, but I can’t seem to find definitive answers anywhere. The 10 day isolation period is based on how long people are thought to be contagious for (although there still seems to be some debate regarding if that starts from point of...

    Omicron

    Why have they jumped so many letters in the Greek alphabet? There are epsilon, zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu and xi between Delta and Omicron. Follow up with anything else on the new variant that you want.
