    I must not be poor enough yet, as I still get comments of 'get on the sidewalk' and etc when I'm cycling down the street.

    Unless you were referring to people that cycle just to ride, vs those that cycle for green, healthy transit.

    It's likely nothing, but 3yo Son, wife and I have all been run down and spluttery for days, and we have all been "out" out last week, Son to the Childminders, and both of us on the tube.
    So, we did our home Covid tests today and got them in the priority post for this afternoon. Now the wait begins.
    Throat-swabbing a 3yo is no fun at all.

    I know a lot of people who are testing positive for antibodies and were totally asymptomatic. What's the frequency for false positives?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Good but not perfect - very much depends on the test

    It won't all be false positives. The explanatory text provided to my partner - an nhs crit care nurse - for her testing is that they expect less than 1% of the positives to be false.

    My understanding is up to 80% of people can be asymptoamtic or have incredibly mild symptoms. I know home testing kits are not great but given we are mild/unsure it felt a sensible precaution.

    We did a statistical study in Slovenia based on antibodies test. When we had ~1200 positive cases the analysis estimated around 60-70k people already had it. Most were apparently asymptomatic read 80%+

    Russia becomes first country to approve a COVID-19 vaccine, says Putin And e claims that his daughters have been vaccinated with the new vaccine.
    Russia just skipped a step in the process so they could say they're first. The vaccine has not undergone phase III trials.

    Public Health England has been doing random testing.

    Worryingly, 69% of people testing positive reported no symptoms on the day of the test or the previous week, although the Government said 'they may have developed symptoms later on and it doesn’t show how infectious they might have been at this time'.
    From what I gather 'no symptoms' means nothing at all... There will be people among that group who reported 'mild' symptoms who didn't even consider that they'd caught it.

    Cyclists on roadways are evil and should be purged.

    They can be a fucking pain at times... riding two/three abreast but I keep a respectful distance some of them round here are generally pretty good, signalling if it's ok to overtake on corners or if they're cresting hills.
    They get a hazard light flash in appreciation as I pass them.

    two or three abreast is actually probably safer - shorter overall distance to overtake and stops you from taking risks like passing too close with potential oncoming traffic.
