False positives…

As I wrote yesterday – we had a bit of a scare. A bunch of self tests turned out faintly positive. Well, I’m happy to report that our PCR results came back very negative today, so the scare was only short-lived. I don’t understand how it is possible to get three false positives out of four self tests. It scared the hell out of me, and I spent 24h in an adrenaline rush. As a consequence, I’m now in a bit of an adrenaline drain. I’m completely exhausted. Needless to say, it was a very satisfying day (I even finished a paper revision and shared it with co-authors), and a big – no a huge – relief.

I think I’ll leave it at that for today. Time to start binge-watching new episodes of ‘The Blacklist’ this evening.

Well. Okay, no, maybe a few more final words. This may be preaching to the choir. But still, I think they are important…. Get your bloody vaccinations! Go get them, not just for yourself, but also to reduce risks for those of us that can’t be vaccinated (yet), such as (young) kids and (in countries like Germany) pregnant women. Thank you! Bye.
