Good luck, Mo.

Were it me, I think I'd opt for the expense of a private test anyway unless the home test would arrive very soon and have a very quick turn-around time for results. But maybe that's just me; I'd rather know sooner rather than later.

WTF? Why wouldn't they want to test you? Is UK having a shortage of tests as well?
Because it wouldn’t change the treatment right now which would be rest and isolate. He said I can get it if I want one, but not worth the expense (private doctor). He said he could send me a home test in the post.
Fair enough, I guess.

Best of luck, Mo. Here's hoping it's one of the mild cases.

So far so good. Though to be fair I don’t know how far along I am in it. My fever hit on Friday and peaked at 102.9. Since then it’s been hanging around at 101.5ish. No serious cough and no shortness of breath. I am very achy though

Meghan and Harry are fine; it's Boris Johnson who deserves a big coughing visit from Mo right about now.

Seriously, Mo, I hope you're okay. At least it sounds like you have the mild "unpleasant cold" version of the disease, anyway. What about your wife and kids, though -- are you quarantined with or away from them?

Not getting a test is weird to me though. I would think they would want to confirm it as well since it could be added to the number of people infected. I mean if they're doing this regularly how accurate are the current figures?

Not very, considering most cases are asymptomatic or mild enough that people don't bother to get tested. Even if they wanted to there is still a shortage of test kits.

Well seriously take care of yourself. If it is this monster, it's a bit of a road before you're really out of the woods.

mrs lunch's fever started either Saturday or Sunday of last week, so she's at the 8-9 day mark. Didn't even crest 101F yesterday, that we measured. Day 10 is where we'll start to feel safe from a potential downturn. Although there's actually a pretty good chance this was a mild case of flu, since she never got the tickly cough part. Her fever's been down so we may be into the tail end, but there are plenty of reports of it seeming to slack off then come roaring back.

Somebody I follow on Twitter has COVID-19 symptoms, albeit fairly mild, and was stressed about not getting tested because he thought if he could confirm he had it, he'd feel able to resume going out in public once he'd recovered. Though I suppose that assumes having it confers immunity thereafter -- has that been established yet?

No, it hasn’t slash length of immunity has definitely not been.

There have been some reports of people being reinfected after recovering, but it's not clear whether that is an actual thing or due to testing problems or varying illness durations.
Snopes wrote:Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who is for many Americans the most familiar source for information on the coronavirus disease (due to his numerous appearances at government press conferences and cable television news reports), told Congress that he felt it was unlikely anyone could become reinfected by the virus: “We haven’t formally proved it, but … if this acts like any other virus, once you recover, you won’t get reinfected.”
