I had it a few weeks ago. Was given Z pack and a steroid. Was told not to get hot, to take zinc and vitamin C.

Symptoms were mild fever, pneumonia, kidney infection, and no taste or smell. Felt a little bad for about 2 1/2 days.

I went outside and worked in yard for about 30 minutes on day 3. It was about 100 degrees out. I realized then why they said don’t get hot.

Day 5 I felt 100% ok. Got up that morning and ran. (Got winded a little easier than normal for a couple days)

For me the worst part was the damn nasal swab. Had to do it again to return to work. That sucked!

I know many people that had it, (20). We have a meat processing plant here. We were 2nd and 3rd on and off per capita when it hit Texas. Made state news a few times.
Of the 20 or so people that I know who have had it, 3 had to stay in hospital. 2 of the 3 are fat and all around unhealthy, diabetes etc.
The other, had to stay one night. They didn’t catch his pneumonia soon enough and had to give him IV and oxygen.

I never wore a mask. I have friends that were scared of it. They wore masks, did online shopping, the curbside pick-up thing, lysoled, packages, you name it. They still got it. She said they felt cheated after they got it cause they tried so hard not to.

Yeah, I had covid 19, of course I am a high risk person so I was only mildly out of sorts for two days, snotted out a gallon of snot, coughed a couple times a day, low grade (about one/two degree fever), lasted two days and third day was fine. This illness/virus is so horrible you got to have a swab stuck 3" up your nose to even know you have/had it.

The other part about that same scenario, is that there are tons of people that have done the same thing. They feel triumphant and sound the trumpets for the almighty mask! Little do they realize that they already had it and just don’t know. 80% show no more than a sniffle. The other 19.88% react like the seasonal flu. Some worse than others. The death toll from this is NOT 166,000. Liars

You’re exactly right. I had the flu in 2004. It was way worse than Covid. Dang flu lasted almost a week.

"KNEW" 2!!!
But they passed away in the initial wave here in WV.
Now an acquaintance's son, who is an athlete at Marshall U. has tested positive.
But it's really just a hoax to try and steal the election from the Commander 'n Cheeto!!!

Perhaps a little detail on the 2 that passed? No disrespect, but I bet they were not 30.
As far as the athlete at Marshall U, bet he's just fine....
I have some skin in this game. I lost my father to this crap a month and a half ago. He would have passed with a good case of the flu. I am a realist. Half of these numbers are bogus, making this no worse than a bad flu season. The only thing different is that the Democraps want to destroy the economy right up until the election. If Dopey Joe takes the trophy, this crap will all go away and the media will concentrate on taking our gun again!

The number of folks in the U.S. who normally die of the seasonal flu is between 20,000 - 30,000 which is not a small number.

Right now the number of claimed deaths due to Covid are approaching 200,000 in the U.S. alone. So the usual sources say.

Some believe that this is a hoax and fake and an effort to get rid of President Trump. If so then South Africa, Italy, Brazil, England, Guatemala, Sweden, and a whole lot more, are all in on this secret conspiracy to get Joe Biden into office. With doctors and nurses lying and fake graves and funerals and all. They also have been all quiet about it as well, the plot that is.

The D's are using this against Trump and they lie about it to do so.

Trump has flip-flopped on the pandemic so many times that it's confused a lot of folks. He's for the shut down, then being a coward all he can do is talk bad about it in the back rooms and tweets, the next day he's all for it again, then he wants to open the economy again, etc. Same with masks, and tests, etc.

Kinda obvious that both R's and D's don't have a clue on what to do. The pandemic will drag out. They only thing they agree on is that the working class and small businesses and farmers, will pay for this with our blood and our money.

Some points you might ponder. If I catch flu, I’m probably dead. I get a flu vaccination every year, and so far so good. There is no vaccine for COVID-19 as yet. COVID-19 apparently is much more contagious than ordinary flu. How many health professionals die of flu each year? I’m sure there are some, but not the numbers we are seeing with COVID-19. Yes, the media makes it sound worse than it probably is. But, with everyone ignoring the facts and doing their own thing, it’s going to take a long time to get past this pandemic. The Demos will make hay of Trumps lackluster response. Can’t be helped. It was what it was. Hopefully the Demos weak ticket and platform will be their undoing.

I do not think the virus is a hoax as in; it doesn’t exist.
I do think there is a difference in died “from” COVID and died “with” COVID.
I do think the socialist party running against Trump will do anything, even lie (with the help of the media) to win.

There's 186K members here. That's a decent cross section of society, I'd say. I myself do not know anyone with it, and no one I know knows anyone first hand. There are reports of "someone in my company" having had it, even deaths, but no "Jane Doe who I have known for 20 years has it, was in the hospital 2 weeks, came out/died" stories.

Thank you for playing along with my very unscientific experiment here.
My healthy sixty five year old brother, and his wife, both recovered recently from the virus passed on to them from their daughter who visited them while she was COVID positive. Unknowingly, that is. I have a sixty three year old asthmatic, female cousin, who survived the virus after being comatose on a ventilator. She's fine now.

Having said that, I am, and always was, willing to take my chances contracting this illness if it means that we, as a people, could keep our country working.

I now personally know two.

Twin young ladies I know that work as CNA's at an area Nursing Home.

They've tested positive and are on lockdown/quarantine.

So far, no complications.

They're 18, so their age is evidently in their favor.

I just don’t know why this is so hard to believe for some folks. Of course it exists, but not nearly on the level advertised!
Some like to use New York as an example, 33K deaths right there because of their jackwagon leadership marching people to their deaths and refusing to react at all. All I have ever asked for are real numbers. Yes, it’s bad, and some continue to feed this 200,000 crap. You are exactly right, dying “with” Covid is not the same.

My BIL in Ok got it. He's mid 50's and a health nut. First 3 days kicked his butt. After that he said he just feels like he got run over.

They should have done a trace of research in which case they'd have found out if they wanted effectiveness they'd have needed N95 masks, not surgical or cloth, and would have needed to change masks every 2 hours.

And in addition, the virus spreads on surfaces and from touching hands to face. Which people other than trained medical professionals strongly tend to do MORE with a mask.

Take ineffective steps, get ineffective results. Why feel cheated?

As a Firefighter and Paramedic, yes, I know many many of people who have got it. Many of them have died.

And a million times that have had nothing more than a runny nose. You have to respond to the worst of the worst cases, of course your experience will be far worse than the rest of the population.

I know a few people who have had it. All but one of them didn’t experience anything severe at all. The one lady who is 86 had to be on oxygen for a while, but her husband only ran fever for a few days. I “know of” a handful who died, but none in my circles.

I didn’t ask her to elaborate. I got the feeling she felt like she was tricked into being afraid of something that wasn’t worth the lengths she went to avoiding it.

They spent months totally changing their lives for an illness that lasted 36 hours.

Thank you for explaining further. That makes perfect sense.

One of my long time close friends is a Critical Care Respiratory Therapist.

For those who get serious cases of COVID-19, it sucks really bad and can be and often is deadly.

But even she says that if the only people you talk to in the hospital are those working with the Critical Cases, you get a skewed picture of how bad the pandemic is.

Those who work in total PPE for 12 hour shifts dealing with patients who're critical tend to have a different perspective than my PCP whose clinic has seen only two patients that turned out to be COVID-19 Positive.

Interesting side note. One of the Local Infectious Disease Doctors who frequently is saying "Mask it or Casket" and "If you don't want to wear a mask, I've got a ventilator for you to try on." flew to St. Louis a couple of weekends ago with his wife to "See the sights". Multiple pics of them sightseeing sans masks and low and behold, no "Quarantine" upon returning back to work with critically ill patients after the trip.

Geee. Double Standards much?

A good example would be to have them look back at 2019. Critical care respiratory would have been busy then too. This just has a new shine on it because of all the fancy buzz works. The news people still like to dramatize the day by saying “Global Coronavirus Pandemic”. Just refer to it as the virus, we’ll get what you mean.....
Nice example of the St Louis trip too. Even Fauci was seen at a ball game crawling on someone without a mask on. No quarantine there either. Hypocrisy runs high I would say.

Health officials maintain stats on people who die from all causes, and because of this we have historical data going back decades. They can also use this to predict how many people would have been expected to die this year, and then compare it with how many people have in fact died this year. They call this "excess deaths." So far the excess deaths exceed the official Covid-19 death stats, and not just in this country, but in a ton of countries all over the world. Check out this article discussing it. There are many other articles out there like it. The inevitable conclusion is that Covid-19 deaths are most likely underreported. Yes, we hear the anecdote of some guy killed in a motorcycle accident who was positive for Covid-19 being chalked up as a Covid death. Then there are many folks who died without ever being tested and found positive. In the end the excess deaths tell the story of what really happened, and so far it's not good news.

If in an average year in the US ~20,000 people die of the flu, and our excess deaths so far exceed 200,000 people (with over four months left to go in the year), it's likely that Covid-19 is at least ten times worse than normal seasonal influenza.

Yeah, I'm sure this is just some global conspiracy with dozens of countries out there faking their health records just to get rid of our current US president. Or, maybe, the pandemic is real, and should be taken seriously.

As I post this, we're on page 7, with a great many posters here reporting firsthand knowledge of family members, aquaintences, and friends who have died from this. I believe them. That's sobering stuff. I, personally, am fortunate not to know of anyone in my family or friends yet who have caught this, but from what I know most of my family and friends are staying home as much as possible, and wearing masks and keeping their distance from people the best they can when they go out. We may end up getting it anyway, but if doing these mitigation behaviors even just reduces, but doesn't eliminate, my chances of getting it, I'm going to do them.
