My boss is in the same boat, struggling for breath today.. started coughing a lot on Friday. Worried about him as he has asthma but I don't think the information is clear enough.

Shortness of breath isn't a common symptom of the flu or cold according to this:

My wife has asthma and gets short of breath with the usual winter viruses.

That is the situation I am in. I'm 53, had my pericardium stripped at 32 but did get a pneumonia jab in 2000, so I should be OK.

The pneumonia jab doesn't protect against the coronavirus.  Also, you should have the vaccine every 5-7 years.

Got told I only needed it the once when they gave me it.

Was that because it gave you time to recover? Patients with chronic conditions are advised to be vaccinated every 5 years.

It will give some protection against complications such as pneumonia?

That's true but the Coronavirus itself is not Pneumonia even though you get Pneumonia-like symptoms.

From what I’ve read, the virus itself actually only lasts days, or a week or so, but it can lead to pneumonia etc, which is also causing deaths. It’s the same with the flu season. The stats usually show deaths “associated” with flu, including post virus complications.

When I got given it, can't remember if it was at Wythenshawe where I had to op, or Southport which my local hospital who I was under, I was told at that time the jab I was given I would only need to have once in my lifetime. I am routinely called in for a flu jab and have never been told I needed another pneumonia jab.

Thats where my line of thinking came from, as it can lead to pneumonia.

Yeah, Australia are also trialling the TB vaccine with healthcare workers because of a theory of it protecting against complications.

The cough can last for several weeks as well. I've been told I can return to work next week providing my temperature is normal. I still have the cough but you can have that for several weeks anyway.

Anyone who has caught it or knows someone with it, do you know how you got it, was it from someone you met or some place you have been?

I have decided tomorrow I will go for a little saunter after fourteen days self-isolating. I only have a bit of a cough now, my taste has come back and my temperature is normal. Just feel as if I need a bit of proper fresh air, before Monday and returning to work.

Best of luck Jill. Great to hear you're back fighting fit!

For my part I'd not realised how much time I spent outdoors, until the opportunity was taken away. Now a return to the great outdoors is the prize, in my mind, for the difficulties and denials of this period. And I hope I will, consequently, value it much more.

Absolutely I know what you mean. It is so easy to take things for granted, I've been lucky whereas I've had people around who have helped me in the difficult moments. My turn to return the favour now I think after tomorrow.

Chatted with my brother in law over the garden fence today, obviously kept our distance. He's feeling a lot better and managed to eat for the first time in over a week last night. Seems like he has had it, cough, fever lost of sense of taste.

Glad to hear Jill (and Rob's brother in law too).
