+1. Actually, nobody in my immediate family knows anybody who had COVID-19. Then again, I think I'm the only one who knew anybody who was HIV+. "Knew", because they (two men) died of AIDS in the 1980s and 90s.
Well, I'm -1 now. A colleague of my wife, a pianist in Spain, wrote today to say that his father had just passed away with COVID-19.

Two friends in CH, both recovered, and my sister knew someone in the US who died.

I have/had several work colleagues from the US with AIDS. One has been HIV+ for nearly 40 years and is still going.

Re: Personal experience contracting corona?

One of my friends who is also a former colleague, works as a NHS health centre receptionist and deals with a lot of walk-in patients. She's a single mum with an 11yr old daughter and whilst she's very professional in public, she'd be the first to admit she can be a bit of a drama queen amongst friends.

Anyway, she was off work two weeks ago with symptoms and self-isolated at home but managed to get a test on day 5. Her daughter refused to go near her, organised a rota for use of the kitchen and bathroom, and followed her round for a week with a bottle of dettol cleaning everything she touched. She got a negative result but is still too ill to work for the moment. However, her pampered princess of a daughter who has never lifted a finger previously, has now proved she can organise, run the house, do all the housework, wash her own clothes and cook a decent meal, and mum is going to take full advantage of her daughter's 'new found' skills for as long as she can

Re: Personal experience contracting corona?

My husband and I have tested positive for the corona antibody test, which gives each of us 99.8% chance of having had corona before. We both had a cold-like illness in April, and our teenage kids have had it too. We didn’t expect this to be corona and were surprised by the test results.

Jep like me for instance. Had mild cold-like symptoms for two days in early March, guess that was it or maybe it wasn’t, who knows.

My cousin who lives in NYC reported the same - very mild symptoms for a few days in February or March, had antibodies when tested a few months later.

Beyond that I know no one who had it. Some suspect it, but none of them know.
