A MAN says his colleagues do not need to worry about him coughing in their faces, because it is just a cold and not Covid.
Julian Cook was surprised when people started backing away from him after finding out he was ill, and yet had come to work not wearing a mask and started blowing his nose over the photocopier.
Cook said: “They were treating me like I had the plague or something. I know there has just been a two-year long pandemic that has destroyed the health and livelihoods of millions but, honestly, chill out everyone.
“I won’t wear a mask because they only stop you spreading Covid, but a cold’s not Covid. And yes, that is a scientific fact. I watched a video about it on Facebook.”
Joseph Turner, who works with Mr Cook and caught his cold said: “The guy is an idiot. In the old days you were expected to still turn up at work if you were half dead with flu.
“Now you can get a week off if you’ve got a little sniffle and a picture of a positive lateral flow test that your cousin Dave sent you. It’s brilliant.”
