Can I ask if people have had a short stay in hospital recently and NOT caught Covid-19. I have just spent a night in hospital after a seizure and I'm worried I will have caught it.

I think many people have been in hospital and left just fine. Tbh I thought the COVID entrances and wards were completely separate to where other patients might be. I also reckon staff in COVID wards will only work in there. For example, I would like to think a cleaner on the covid ward wouldn't waltz in to your ward for a clean.

I hope this reassures you a little bit.

Yes, I did, for an operation. I was in the worst-affected virus-hit hospital in the country at the time. I was fine.

I mean, I didn’t catch Covid, if that wasn’t clear.

Yes it was clear daisy. I'm petrified. I don't mind admitting it. I have severe anxiety anyway. I have to go to the doctor's for a blood test and two of my kids have special needs. I'm worried sick

My 94-year old grandmother fell & broke her hip a couple of weeks ago. She was finally released from hospital on Thursday, and so far seems ok. Tbh my family and I had resigned ourselves to thinking she was going to catch Covid-19 in hospital, therefore may never actually leave. But after a lot of wrangling with social services to get her some kind of care (we all live 200+ miles away), she’s home and so far seems ok.
