Diary Day 16 - Friday

Wow, today was almost a day off! Everything went brilliantly in the isolation unit. We had a rousing meeting yesterday in which I complained a lot and so today everyone has been doing exactly what they should be!

Wow, today was almost a day off! Everything went brilliantly in the isolation unit. We had a rousing meeting yesterday in which I complained a lot and so today everyone has been doing exactly what they should be! The medical staff were full of compliments rather than complaints which was very satisfying.

I also spent some time setting up the water filtration system. The previous filters were too small and poor quality, but today we got five new ones and Jan and I spent a happy couple of hours putting them together and running water through them. The water now tastes much better, if a little medicinal.

We also have a “fridge” – a box that Jan constructed out of bricks and then filled with beer and covered with a towel with its ends hanging in buckets of water. It works quite well and although the beers are not exactly cold they are definitely chilled!
