Brian May’s Instagram post read:
“Day 8 for me – the 8th day after my body was invaded by enough Coronavirus organisms to bring me down. Firstly, I think I was a little too optimistic yesterday, imagining that the red ‘T’ line was looking fainter. It’s a different test kit today – but the lines look pretty much of equal intensity today. So I’m assuming the battle inside my body is still in progress.
It also feels like it – that dry wheezy cough has returned today, and there is a kind of fountain of irritation on one side of my sinuses. I also keep falling asleep – not in a peaceful kind of way, but in an ‘I can’t keep my eyes open another second’ kind of way. So it’s a damn good job this happened at a time when I’m not crazy busy as usual.
Sorry – this stuff isn’t entertaining anymore – but I figure at least I can report it as info that might help somebody out there to feel less apprehensive. I’m fundamentally OK. Just feeling a bit crap and frustrated at not being able to be out and about at this time of year. But I think we’re all feeling a bit of that – right?
It’s so clear that the new Omicron variant is completely out of control in the UK. And probably in the whole world of humans. Talking of which… Does anybody out there know which variant they caught? I don’t. I have been told that this information isn’t available from the NHS tests.
If that’s the case, where are all these statistics coming from every day? I’d be very interested to hear from anyone who knows the answer to this. Cheers all, and good luck out there. I say again… It’s very apparent now that, although the lateral flow test is a useful guide, if you get a negative result tomorrow morning, you cannot 100% guarantee that you are not infected and infectious all day.
So for the sake of everyone around you, keep the caution going – masks, social distance, common sense – and only go to a gathering in an enclosed space if you are really sure the risk is worth it. As my dear Mum used to say (in half-jest) — ‘Do as I say – not as I do!’ Bri.”
In the post, May also included a short video in which he looks at a clock and his test result. As it seems, the guitarist is also waiting to recover from the coronavirus disease with impatience.
