Thanks for your post on my thread. Yes, Ireland have dealt with it better than the U.K. The U.K. have been slow to shut up shop, I recall the Cheltenham festival going ahead and a number of people got sick there, slow to test, PPE logistics issues and the nursing home situation will come out as a scandal when all is revealed.
You May be right about the sore throat, it was absent today
but it comes and goes.
Hope to chat later, just missed you yesterday.
