I work with a covid denier. Believes 5G theories. Thinks it's a political hoax. Doesn't get enough oxygen through the mask. Asks me to shut windows because it's cold (while only wearing a T shirt). On and on and on.

Has covid. Is feeling really dodgy.

He will probably say that he was a victim of a Government Agency who have targeted him for his views and he has been deliberately infected with something similar.

Let’s all hope he makes a full recovery and hasn’t infected you and your colleagues.

Karma at work. Hope you and your colleagues are ok. Just had my first jab. Better he will have his when it's his turn. ?

Previously he didn't want the vaccine. I will wait to see if he has changed his opinions, post covid.

Let's just say, staff at work aren't overly sympathetic.

Karma indeed. But do they need a test to prove it or will they say it is just a bad cold?

We have all had tests. First we had quick tests but recently have been given 2 PCR tests. The PCR pick the infection up before symptoms start.

Worryingly, 2/3 of people found to be positive have had no symptoms at all.

I have been VERY sympathetic. And to be fair, I genuinely don't wish him ill. He isn't old, but not young either. I didn't think he would suffer as much as he has. But it COULD be a touch of man-flu-syndrome too.

Hopefully he will make a full recovery. It will be interesting to hear his views once he is recovered and back at work, do you think he will have changed his mind about it "just being flu"? which is the usual argument from covid deniers.

Sorry to hear your colleagues have been found positive. Keep safe
