Covid in general

What we learned from our family's outbreak about preventing COVID's spread
  24 dec 2021

"Just reminding everyone that severe COVID symptoms often start nearly 7 to 10 days after symptom onset. Many patients we admitted with hypoxia noted that their cold symptoms started to go away around days 4 to 6. It's a bit premature to say you have a mild case upon diagnosis."
  Thread, with many people's experiences.

experiences with the Omicron variant

Omicron, days 5/6, no better.

  Wife: fever >102° off & on last 15 hrs, excruciating bone & joint pain, fatigue, sore throat. 
  We are middle aged & healthy. Omicron is NOT "mild". I fear for the vulnerable.

Sherri Santos: "Covid-19 isn't just 'you get better' or 'you die'. My sister is in week 8. Four weeks of high fever, extreme body aches and crushing fatigue. Week 5 the fevers went away but she developed shortness of breath. Week 6 CT scan showed multiple pulmonary blood clots. Now ... "
  Long thread, many stories

Mikki Kendall: As someone who had Covid and is now in recovery? You don't want to let this trout mouthed yamp in your house. You want her to stay the fuck away from you. I am far from one of the worst case scenarios and I am in month 3 of recovery. Good news I don't need my inhaler every day!

Hey, so, I got Covid19 in March. I’ve been sick for over 3 months w/ severe respiratory, cardiovascular and neurological symptoms. I still have a fever. I’ve been incapacitated for nearly a season of my life. It's not enough to not die. You don’t want to live thru this, either.
