Apparently you can get coronavirus moe than once https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=y ... pp=desktop
Of course you probably can. You can get flu more than once the second time might be a slightly different mutation of the first. This is why the flu vaccination changes each year to reflect what the scientists think might be prevalent at any given time. All virus have the capability to mutate. But as macliam says the truth is at this stage in the life of the virus we just do not know. Not enough is known about it. There is no current test for antibodies to covid19 so no one knows whether an immunity can be built up.

COVID Rhapsody

Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergy?
Locked down at home and
No escape from reality.

Don’t touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize...... quickly-y-y
I’m just a poor boy - no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
Washing hands, laying low
Looking through the window, curve doesn’t seem flatter to me - to meeeee

Mama, just killed a man
Didn’t stay at home in bed
I breathed on him, now he’s dead
Mama, life was so much fun
But now I’ve caught this unforgiving plague
Mama, oo-ooh-ooh-ooh - didn’t mean to make him die
If I’m not back at work this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, people just don't matter...

Too late, my time has come
Sending shivers down my spine
In a fever all the time
Goodbye everybody, I’ve got the bug
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (look out the window)
I don’t wanna die
I sometimes wish I'd never gone out at all

I see a little silhouette-o of a man
In a mask, in a mask
Is he touching his face though?
Lockdown is tightening
Very very frightening me, to me!

Gotta stay home (gotta stay home)
Gotta stay home (gotta stay home every day)
Gotta stay home - every day
Every day Oo Oo Oo Oo

I’m just a poor boy, facing mortality (He's just a poor boy, facing mortality)
Spare him his life from this COVID-19

Hide your face, wash your hands, will you wash your hands?
Bismillah NO! We will not wash our hands! (Wash our hands...)
Bismillah NO! We will not wash our hands! (Wash our hands...)
Bismillah NO! We will not wash our hands! (Wash our hands...)
Wash you hands! (never, never, never wash your hands oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
No no no no no

Mama mia, mama mia (mama mia wash your hands!)
COVID-19 has a fever put aside for me, for me, for me, for meeee

So you think you can stop me from shaking your hand?
So you think you can still fly to Portugal as planned?
Oh baby, you can’t do these things, baby,
Just gotta stay home, just gotta stay right home - alone

Oooooh
This is getting boring, anyone can see
This is getting boring
This is getting boring, just me?

Just look out your windows….
Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

I've looked out of my window and the road is empty, no people, no cars.

I was devastated to hear about Justin Beiber during the current outbreak. :shock:

Apparently he's fine. :?

what I heard on the radio is really bad. Supermarkets open for an hour for the elderly and disabled. Report said younger people were queuing and even pushing elderly out of the way.
Even worse story was a Spanish Waiter, works for Britannia Hotels group in Scottish Hightlands. He had been sacked and told he will have to leave his accommodation after that night. He does not know where he will sleep tonight. So no job, nowhere to sleep.
Words fail me.
And then the odious Tim Wetherspoon is interviewed and feels we should still leave the EU at the end of the year. How the hell can we when we cannot negotiate our relationship with them from 1st Jan 2021. Not saying not leave but we must delay the date.
I would hope both chains collapse if it did not mean others will lose their jobs and they do not deserve that.
Take care everyone and if you can help the vulnerable but do not put anyone at risk. A phone call can mean so much at the moment.

The regime says they will pay 80% of your wages...not how under what circumstances but interesting developments today.
