My first thought would be to model the coronavirus itself (bonus points for doing it actual size) but it looks to be quite a challenge to model (pic is here, large file size so i didn't include it directly in my reply):

and I suppose that would be another topic.
Looks more like a blender job. You can include foreign images using the image tag:

Yes, I know but the image took a long time to load for me so I didn't want to put it in the img brackets, making everyone reading have to load it...

Didn't think about that, but It's a good reason. Glad I didn't do it, which I was thinking about.

A little over 48 hours since I've tested positive. No fever (my temperature is still low) and just the tiniest bit of congestion in my chest. If a test hadn't determined that I'm positive for the virus, I wouldn't know I have it.

This soap is more intense than the Little House on the Prairie. Can't wait the next episode. :lol: :twisted:
Seriously, wishing you well. Hope you'll recover very soon. ;)

Being in quarantine is like living the movie Groundhog Day, except with boring days.

Thanks, the thing is that because I don't know when I first contacted the virus I don't know if I should be expecting my symptoms to be getting better or worse. I can only wait and see what happens...

Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

Thank you; I guess that I was tested as I was getting past the virus so I expect to be out of isolation in a few more days. From what I understand, the end of my isolation is time based upon no longer having symptoms, and so I don't think that I will be tested again.

Je vous remercie; Je suppose que j'ai été testé alors que je dépassais le virus, je m'attends donc à ne plus être isolé dans quelques jours. D'après ce que je comprends, la fin de mon isolement est le temps basé sur le fait de ne plus avoir de symptômes, et donc je ne pense pas que je vais être testé à nouveau.

great news it's great for you and your family
J'ai appris que le test d'écouvillonnage nasal que je faisais ne peut que tester la présence de matériel génétique du virus. Donc, si je surmonte la maladie mais que j'expulse toujours des virus morts par l'expiration, cela donne un test positif. Le test d'écouvillonnage nasal ne peut pas déterminer où j'en suis au cours de la maladie - si je viens de contracter le virus, si je suis au milieu de la maladie ou si je suis à la fin de la maladie. Pour cela, ils examinent d'autres symptômes (toux, congestion, fièvre, faible taux d'oxygène dans le sang, etc.).

Je n'ai eu aucun symptôme depuis quelques jours, donc je devrais être libéré lundi. Après cela, je suis triste de dire que je serai encore loin du forum. Beaucoup de bruit pour rien, comme dit le proverbe. :lol:


I learned that the nasal swab test I had can only test for the presence of genetic material of the virus. So, if I'm over the illness but still expelling dead viruses through exhaling, that results in a positive test. The nasal swab test can't determine where I am in the course of the illness - whether I just got the virus, whether I'm in the middle of the illness, or whether I'm at the end of the illness. For that they look at other symptoms (cough, congestion, fever, low oxygen levels in the blood, etc).

I haven't had any symptoms for a few days, so I should be released Monday. After that, I'm sad to say that I'll be away from the forum for a while more. Much ado about nothing, as the saying goes.
:lol:

Oui, je me souviens de quand vous l'avez présenté pour la première fois!
Yes, I remember from when you first introduced it!
