    I am tempted to purposely get infected just to once again live a normal life.

    NT News newspaper 14 May 2020


    Very rare

    Fewer than 15 thousand cases per year (Indonesia)

    Short-term: resolves within days to weeks

    Treatable by a medical professional

    Requires a medical diagnosis

    Lab tests or imaging often required

    Critical: needs emergency care

    * Google Kawasaki disease

    No one knows what causes Kawasaki disease, but scientists don't believe the disease is contagious from person to person. A number of theories link the disease to bacteria, viruses or other environmental factors, but none has been proved. Certain genes may make your child more likely to get Kawasaki disease.Oct 31, 2019

    * Google Kawasaki disease causes

    Whether or not you personally get infected is not going to change your country's reaction to this pandemic. Those who have contracted and survived this virus are living the same restrictive lifestyle that the rest of us are. Restaurants aren't opening just to cater for those with antibodies, etc.

    As can see on screen this specialist in paediatric disease is linking this rare virus reaction to past infections

    To be clear past infections the child has had seems to affect the child's reaction to the virus

    What does "past infections" refer to ?

    Other infections unrelated to covid19?

    I was under the impression that these paediatric syndromes were an after effect of the covid19 infection itself.

    As I understand previous diseases, unrelated to COVID-19, child has suffered in the past, may increase the chances of the child getting a reaction, which is like the rare Kawasaki disease, if they catch COVID-9

    Perhaps those earlier infections have left a weakness in the child that covid-19 has reopened?

    Personally I have had shingles (twice) which is a recurrence of the chicken pox virus which never goes away but lies dormant over the decades before 're -emerging as shingles when the body is said to be under some stress.

    The link above links to treatment for Kawasaki disease. It's very long and I gave up about a ¼ way through. Well above my pay level

    What I was looking for was a list of diseases those with Kawasaki disease had had in their past to see if there was a matching with those diseases COVID-19 patients had had in theirs

    Didn't find any list. Did find a snippet giving Kawasaki disease a higher rate of occurrence in Japan and Kawasaki disease link to a wind pattern in China

    Not sure weakness in child would be accurate. I speculate antibodies, in the child left behind from previous diseases, reactivated by COVID-19, secondary to the activation of the bodies immune defence activating to fight COVID-19, cause the symptoms of Kawasaki disease

    MY speculation
    • X disease in child
    • leaves behind a few X antibodies
    • child infected with COVID-19
    • immune defence activated against COVID-19
    • X disease antibodies become reactivated
    • X disease antibodies in the presence of COVID-19 antibodies produce symptoms of Kawasaki disease
    Speculation only

    I don’t have it and have been pretty vigilant about remaining isolated.

    Has the "don't have it" been confirmed by rigorous testing and ruling out, you are not suffering (ie if symptoms are showing) said symptoms are from another cause

    OR EVEN

    if no symptoms are showing you are NOT A CARRIER

    Either way stick to isolation until you feel safe to deisolate ©

    I had the novel virus but my symptoms where mild. It took a lot to be tested. Testing is a failure here. I tested negative for the flu and that test takes 15min.

    I wish you all health!

    I took one COVID 19 test back in July of 2020 after asking my supervisor what to do after I felt a sore throat.

    I did not enjoy the test and preferred to not have another test if I could avoid doing so so I tripled my intake of nutritional sulphur, MSM, and added vitamins C, D3 and zinc to what I take regularly in an attempt to boost my immune system. So far... so good.... I have not yet had to take a second COVID 19 test due to my never since July of 2020 experiencing a sore throat again.

    March 2020 COVID-19 lockdown Bali / Darwin left me stranded in Bali

    Had what I took to be normal dose of flu which cleared up in few days. None of girlfriends had any flu symptoms

    Currently living with girlfriend for past 12 months no flu or COVID-19 symptoms but neither been tested

    Bali is going to open up a tourist attraction carpark as a drive through vaccination clinic. As soon as open I will go with Inul for her to get her shot

    Made a tad more difficult because she has been scared with the reports of deaths attributed (falsely) to the vaccine. I won't be able to get the vaccine to give her reassurance

    As last resort I might have to send her to her unit until she gets vaccinated. But that leaves me to fend for myself. Big dilemma
