[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Seven]
I have enough phlegm in the back of my throat to be annoying.
And a little cough.
And a slightly sore throat.
But first the news:
- Mask wearers are no more likely to flout social distancing, researchers say
- COVID LOCKDOWN PROMPTED DUTCH TO SAVE MORE THAN EVER
- Wearing a mask does not make you careless, Dutch experts reveal
And I’m tired.
But all that could be stress or heat or allergies or a mild summer cold.
I don’t have a temperature.
I have enough energy to hit ten thousand steps today.
I was otherwise better today than yesterday.
And way better than the day before.
The Dutch government encourages us to get tested when we have symptoms, but which ones? Doesn’t COVID react to the body’s systems in different ways producing all different symptoms? Do I schedule a test every time I sneeze? Every time I have a runny nose? Every time I cough? Because I get those symptoms almost every day.
I have two children in full time daycare. Getting sick is just normal.
But at these times when I have more than one symptom? I worry.
Who have I been around?
Where might’ve I got this?
Who did I expose it to?
