At least about a third of the population in most places wouldn't have had it...

My wife has avoided it while living with me and taking no particular precautions when I have had it twice.

I've avoided ever having a PCR test.

I was only required to do a lateral flow test once, after my international travel in Oct 2021. But that was not actually enforced and a photo of a test kit was the only "proof" required.

The only other times I've done lateral flows were because my wife thought we should before visiting her mum.

As I mentioned before I probably had it in Feb 2020. I don't believe I've had it since then although when reading the symptoms of Long Covid I find most of them apply to me. I get tired more easily and it takes longer to recover after exertion, also my taste has changed as I'm now able to eat things that used to disgust me completely (like mayonnaise and excessively creamy soups / pasta sauces, though I still don't prefer such things). But these could just be symptoms of getting old.

Are you also noticing that the police are looking younger? I think we can nail this one if you are!

Many of my colleagues work in hospital cliniques and have been exposed multiple times , a few have them have not got it (even when the whole of the rest of the family have).

It does seem currently that it's luck of the draw, more than anything else, which leads to an infection, or avoiding an infection. I suppose I'm fatalistic about it, but my principal concern is not getting it ahead of something I really want to do.

Yeah, it sucks when that happens. 2 years or so wife and I never had gotten it, then tested before we were going to fly for a long vacation/cruise and wife tested positive - and it was a strong positive, line appearing immediately. Hadn't really had any symptoms that would make you think covid. Two days later I tested positive and basically had the same symptoms I'd have for any cold I normally get in the winter every year. I actually started testing clear 3 days after the positive, although I'm still not feeling 100% (mainly easily fatigued), wife took a while to test clear.

Guess that was the vacation that was just not intended to be. Originally started out as 30 day baltic/iceland cruise, we canceled that a while back because we were concerned about how open things were going to be still, and then shortly after that ukraine happened. So we switched to an 11 day alaska cruise with some stuff before and after, and didn't get to do that, but realistically, some of the places we were going to visit on the after turned out they still weren't going to be open for hte season yet and/or had gotten flooded out. Someone was just telling us we weren't getting a vacation this yet.
