Went to an actual business meeting today, with real humans. Very odd (but good) feeling.

Driving there, what struck me is how our brains have been entirely reconditioned to the spread of germs. Our entire lives we've picked up colds, the flu, some 'viral thing' that the doc sends you away with, but when did we ever wonder who or where we caught it from??

We just got on with things and accepted our sniffles.

When this is all over I really hope we can get back to those halycon days.
Yet my wife and I were talking only this week thats been good to have a whole year, high pollen aside, where neither of us have had the slightest sniffle at all.

Be glad to get rid of the masks but the basic hygiene stuff, like copious washing of hands, for us anyway is here to stay.

I agree but I also wonder how many people are starting to get colds etc and automatically panicking about covid? It‘s certainly true about my place of work.
Many, probably. But at the moment not a bad thing, if it makes them think about staying away from others or getting a test.

Saying that, we're in for a bumpy ride with colds and seasonal flu this winter. There's a firestorm brewing due to no immunity from last winter.

Yup - that low immunity is one of my big concerns.

Anyone read about the Chinese vaccine in the paper at the weekend? Long story short, countries who bought it giving it away claiming its "not that great"

Absolutely. I wonder if we’ll see a change away from people being ‘brave’ and going into work with colds etc? Whatever happens, some things have changed that are never going to change back.

Not sure how you could use this forum on a phone though. My fat fingers couldn't cope!
