I very much thought I'd had it in Feb. I was lucky to get a serology test as part of a clinical trial and I had no antibodies, so highly unlikely. I think there were other similar but less deadly viruses circulating.

I would put money on having had it back in Feb. I was diagnosed with pneumonia. It fits with Covid 19 completely and I have never had anything like it before, my DD also had something which the doctors couldn't diagnose and they were actually really worried about her, she was covered in a complete rash which they said didn't fit with anything, bad cough, temp etc. My DH who is NEVER ill also developed a bad cough. I really think we have had it.

Regardless if I had it though, I'm sure the disease was in this country before the first official reported case. But classed as flu instead.

My one was so weird, seemingly out of no where, flu symptoms. I was driving home from work and mid drive I suddenly felt terrible and got home and took myself to bed. I'd been ok all day.
It was so out of the blue that I thought it was a side effect to some pills I started taking and contacted my doctor but they said I've probably caught something while travelling to or from Spain. They weren't worried about Coronavirus as I hadn't been to Wuhan and just told me to drink lots of fluid and plenty of rest.
The only doubt in my mind is I live with my parents and DD plus I had been to work and to my knowledge no one got it from me.

I think I had it then too. Fairly mild symptoms compared to posts above, but definitely cv-19 type.

The news that France have found a case from late Dec is very interesting. I too was really ill the first week of Feb. High fever (nearly passed out on the way to the bathroom), extreme fatigue, no sense of smell/taste, night sweats, coughing up blood flecked phlegm. It could have been some other virus... but I wonder.

I think I had it too end of Feb, I was sick shortly after returning from Spain and I too went to doctors, shops etc. But I did stay bed bound for 5 days or so. Also I didn't give it to my family who I live with or work colleagues so I'm not 100% convinced.
I mentioned it to doctors but back then all they were interested in is if I had been to Wuhan.

If i have! ive been to the docs, hospital, shopping, work at school, ect! all whilst possibly being wonder this is spreading! my doctor made me feel like a time waster when i went feeling rotten.
