Hey folks,
I did a (not representative) Twitter survey. I wanted to get an overview on how many cases of ME had an (symptomatic) infectious onset.

These are the results, I thought I share them with you (yes I know that the results have their limitations)

365/500 had a known infectious onset

45/500 not

90/500 don’t know

(here it is possible that they had an infectious onset but it was asymptomatic)

Really interesting Martin, I’ll follow you on Twitter :) I mostly just complain about brexit or troll idiotic British people but that’s none of your concern. Maybe you could do a further poll to see if people can narrow down what sort of infections initiated onset if they know.
