It was on the news but also lots of fb posts from people saying buy a lottery ticket if you didn't get covid at Glastonbury because you are that lucky as so many have.

Hardly surprising I know but it seems its absolutely rife at the moment and it's highly contagious.

Not good news for hospitals and care homes who still have to follow rules around self isolation. Care Homes still have to lockdown if 2 member of staff or mote test positive and lots of hospital staff will also be off.

So what’s your point here? There should not have been a Glastonbury?

So, what's the answer? We stop doing normal things forever?

There certainly is a lot of it around again right now. I've had it fairly recently having caught it I think over the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Over 200,000 people went to Glastonbury though, so I strongly doubt that "nearly everyone" came back with Covid.

I call bullshit. Do you seriously think almost every single person who attended has tested themselves for covid?

I call bullshit too. I barely know anyone who even tests any more, only those who have to due to their job

There isn't any way that could be true, if the strain moved so quickly that everyone got it at Glastonbury on the weekend then almost everyone else in the nation would have it by now too.

Me and dp went and don't have it.
Dp had it for the second time at the beginning of the month and I didn't get it then either. Out of about 15 people there who I knew and ase there 4 had it and none of them had had it before. I think natural immunity from previous infections protected most of us.

I had it in November and have been in very close contact with people that have covid multiple times since then and have managed not to get reinfected. Its interesting how different people seem to have different immune system responses to it.

I have it but didn’t go to Glastonbury.

My friends who went to Glastonbury also have it.

I honestly hardly know anyone that tests anymore - I'd be staggered if even a quarter of those returning from glasto have tested.

Our dog Walker went to Glastonbury but she’s fine.

There is a lot of covid at the moment, so people are catching it everywhere. A large event like Glastonbury is sure to cause some positive cases but cases are so high, it’s hard to avoid it. Glastonbury isn’t the only place you will catch it. We had it a couple of weeks ago, everyone we spoke to (friends, family, DH’s work) all said that we were the third or fourth people they’d known that week that had caught it. Since then all our parents have said they’ve been in close contact with a couple of people who have it and are basically waiting to see if they’ve caught it.

Even if that’s true…. So? Is the panic here that care home and hospital staff may have been there and now they’ll have to isolate? Surely that’s a risk whatever they do. Those people are still entitled to have a life. The hospitals and care homes will only allowed a certain number of their staff annual leave at once so it’s not like whole wards will suddenly be without anyone.

Having been to Glastonbury in the past, it's a miracle they don't come back with cholera and dysentery.

I know lots of people who either had it recently or now. A few weeks ago sis and BIL had it, they hadn't been to any concerts or festivals. DD had it last week, she thought she got it from a Harry Styles concert, the rest of us have all tested negative. Someone I know from work currently has it, he's in his 70s and didn't go to Glasto or Harry Styles!

Really? Actually anyone who works in Health Care does give a fuck and still has to test twice a week AND isolate if positive. That's so we don't kill off our patients. So why don't you just fuck off with your uninformed garbage.

Could it be that Covid is just a whacky new name for an Ectasy type drug? Wink
