I trusted the establishment when it said that there was ~no covid in Oxford in Mar 20. Then our little family all got it. I trusted the establishment when it said that, because we were healthy, we’d be fine. I trusted the establishment when it said kids don’t get sick
Our 12 month old developed a fever (40.1 degrees) for three weeks, aside from one day—when, over a few hours, our baby’s temperature dropped like a stone, into hypothermia, like that little body was just shutting down. And we still don’t know about the long-term consequences.
My wife and I also got very sick. My wife was still very sick as an ambulance was taking me off to A&E, after I had collapsed, shaking. Having no nearby family, we emailed strangers to see if anyone could take our children if we both ended up in hospital.
