Never had covid, that I know of anyway as don’t regularly test only if I was Feeling I’ll or been in close contact. We’ve had covid in the household twice and only have a small house so couldn’t really isolate but I didn’t catch either time. Not complaining but thinking there can’t be many left that haven’t had. Interestingly neither my mum or dad has had either

None of us in our household has had it that we know of - all of us are home most of the time. Two of us are vulnerable. Avoid most shops and crowded indoor spaces. Still wearing FFP2 masks. Full vaccinated and boosted.

Do you know what that comment sounds like? How the frig do you know if you've had it or not? 😂some people man.

Why would I test for an infection if I am not ill? If I am not ill, I have not had it as far as I am concerned. I've never tested for rabies but I know I haven't had it.

What was this obsession with constant testing, regardless if you were ill or not? Was there some prize on offer that I missed? I tell you, if the test was a lumbar puncture, there would have been few that wanted a second go.

Worked in a school all through the pandemic, worked with children we later found out were positive whilst they were still attending school, dh had it over Christmas. Despite all of this I never got covid. I'm deemed as vulnerable so had my 4th jab around 2 months ago. Then 2 weeks ago it's raging again in school - but now totally uncontrolled - and I finally succumbed. I was and still am absolutely gutted that after avoiding it all this time I got it. I was off 2 weeks, just returned but think it's going to be a few weeks before I'm fully well again. Don't be sure you won't get it when you least expect it. I thought I was immune and would never get it. I was wrong.

I've never had it. I've had many routine LFTs (when regular testing was in place) and a couple of PCR tests when I've been unwell.
Been around lots of people who've tested positive so does make me wonder how I've avoided it.

I suspect I've had it, but I've always tested negative despite testing frequently during feeling ill or there being a case in the house.

Its really bizarre.

Me, my DS, my partner and both my parents and his parents have all avoided it. My brother, his gf and a handful of my friends have had it. I'm amazed I've managed to miss it, I've worked in schools and nurseries since covid started and DS was in nursery throughout

DD hasn't had it, but then she went through the whole of primary school without a day off. She just doesn't seem to catch viruses.

Me and ds10 are about the only ones in our circle that haven’t had it. Got a sore throat at the start of last week and was convinced I’d finally got it, tested 4 times with 2 different brands- all negative, and I’m better now. Triple jabbed.

As far as I know, I've never had it.

But both my parents and my sister could have said the same until two weeks ago and all have had/got it now so I'm feeling less confident that I might come from a naturally immune family!

I work in a hospital - not on the respiratory wards but still...

Myself and DH - as far as we know. DD1 had in way back at the beginning, brought it home from London as she fled the first lockdown. No-one else got it.

DH has been in and out of London throughout, and literally every one else in his office has had it at least once. Still he has never had it, even sat in meetings with 15 other people for a day, or a fundraiser night with a 100's of people, and he was the only one who didn't get it.

I haven't had it, but then I never go anywhere, other than day to day mouching about.

We have had all our vaccines and boosters, inc. the DD's. Wash our hands, but never really worried about masks either or other mitigating measures.

DD2 caught it last year when she started Uni.

Nope never had it, and neither has my daughter (17). She's on the tube every day but was very strict about the rules - always wore a mask, washed her hands etc.
I think my son probably has had it, though did not test himself (he doesn't live with me). His boss has had it twice and they work quite closely together. He's complained of a couple nasty colds with a cough, but not bad enough to take more than a day or two off work, though the cough lingered. He couldn't get a test at the time and at the start he had four days off in a row coincidentally. But it was never confirmed.
My sisters (USA) both got it March 2020, and again this past summer. One is a doctor and has been quadruple vaxxed, the other has a disabled daughter so has also had early access to vaccinations. One sister has never regained her sense of smell or taste from the first infection - and she's a great cook 😔.

Until 2 weeks ago none of the 4 of us had it. I got it first, I'm CV and I'm still really ill with it and might have permanent hearing loss, Dd2 was next but was fine apart from a bit of a cough. Dd1 next also really unwell for more than a week. DH last was rough for a few days but fine quickly. We have been so careful for the whole pandemic and one work inspection, auditor brought it with him.

Me, DP and our DS have never had it, or we have all been completely asymptomatic. I’m a regular at the gym, live in central London, take public transport everywhere, go into the office a few days a week, fly long haul, etc..

Not had it. I'm not particularly careful, but I live alone and was forced to wfh when numbers were high. I'm a blood group O which is supposed to help.
