Covid-19 - a survivors guide

This topic is for life-continuation tips, questions, useful links etc.

@Jess posted a link to what we would call “take-aways” (that deliver) :slight_smile:

I’ve heard that Covid-19 can survive on a hard surface for 72 hours; a little less on clothing. This has put me off the “sneezing into the crook of your elbow” technique.

I was originally told norovirus patients were no longer infectious 3 days after symptoms cleared but that was extended to 3 weeks, so I’d give it a bit longer.

Ignore government advice to take Ibruprofen if you have Covid-19 symptoms
