Dammit. I’m afraid it’s with us now though, so sooner or later it will get to all of us (I made it to Jan this year, Mrs VB’s yet to have it). Best wishes for an easy ride and quick recovery.

Does anyone know how quickly a positive can show after being exposed to it?

It varies. In my case I reckoned I most likely got exposed on Thursday morning, symptoms started to appear on Saturday late afternoon/early evening, proper sore throat and coughing on Sunday and my first test, at 08:00 or so Monday, was very heavily positive (I reckon I’d have tested positive on Sunday if I hadn’t thought it was ‘that cold that’s going around’).

Can be over a week before testing positive.

We both had it for first time a few weeks ago. We both tested positive on the same day although I started symptoms about 2-3 days before.

Won’t regale you with the unsavoury details but I’ve been rather unwell since Saturday. Neighbour just told me that norovirus or some kind of similar winter vomiting bug has been doing the rounds up here. Makes sense.

I went down with noro about 6 weeks ago.
Thankfully Mrs P was in hospital and a new mattress was already on order.

I’ve experienced the details myself. I had it it a few weeks ago for a few days. You’ll be fine soon enough but its shite at the time. Hope you get well soon bud.

Bollocks!

Have you had it before?

I’m still+ after 10 days, pissed off.

I was surprised how different the tests showed by different suppliers,on one the line was barely visible,the other a really strong positive
