    Delirium and PTSD? I'd put those symptoms down to being locked up for 8 weeks.

    I really will miss all this gloom and doom when we get back to normal , after all the media has looked after us so well , never a day passes when we aren't told how bad things are and I really do appreciate that . Just off to hang myself.

    Deliberately hyping up the fear by the media doesn't help. Most people don't catch it and if they do not much happens. It's a small minority that unfortunate things happen to. Surely there are also risks from PTSD in other areas, e.g. cancer, traffic accidents, victims of crime etc. or has all that gone away now people only die of corona

    Wouldn't it just be easier at this point to list those "symptoms" that aren't associated with covid?

    The key word is "may". They will if expert doctors say they will. It will be a gold mine for the right doctors.

    If you all think this is THAT bad, then imagine living with HIV/AIDS. Pales in comparison. but you don't see the entire world working on a quick cure for THAT virus because of the nature or transmission and the stigma attached tot it.
