Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
Went to the ER this morning since I was sick and missed an entire week of work last week.

Originally, I was hoping to go for an all-clear so that I could officially return to work this week, but got a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 and a two-week quarantine instead!

This wasn't that surprising to me, since I was quite ill, but didn't have coughing or breathing issues...just everything else for about a full week.

Luckily, for work (and being a Union member) I can still get paid while out...without needing sick time. Obviously, not the case for many that are taken out of work temporarily due to this virus.

My family in California is also going through the same (all of them are sick, only the BIL is of concern as he has not improved much).

I really hope you get well soon!!!

My Brother and his daughter were added to the numbers in Austin TX without any testing, just "presumed positive" !! They both got through it in a week and wasn't that bad for either of them other than a couple days of asthma like issues. He is a smoker and she just turned two for what that's worth, this was back in early March.

Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
Yeah, I thought I was well enough yesterday, but I was still slightly sick...even today (but not bad.)

This thing seems to last 10 or more days (like in my case here) which is kind of fucked up...

Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
So you knew for a fact 6 weeks ago you had it and now you got it again?

03/25/2020 01:39 AM

I know for a fact that I had it after seeing other people show the symptom of "no taste" occurring. (That symptom was prevalent later in someone else that I know, and was also many days before being mentioned in the media.)


When that particular thing happened to me weeks ago, (it was the first "real" symptom), I first thought it was something neurological, like an impending stroke, or a brain tumor... I was really kind of worried, and afraid to mention it and freak everyone out, so I waited...


Then, I got rather sick and had every other symptom in the book for this COVID-19 outbreak (..but what would probably be considered one of the "mild" cases), so I didn't go to work for about 12 days...

...and then I got shitloads of flack about "missing work" (aka: probably saving their lives!)

You can never win, can you?!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78854087


I've been researching this thing quite a bit and there are quite a few minor mutations (I think 40+ known?) and the biggest problem besides not knowing if we can really even develop an immunity to it, is that if we do, it might only last for a few weeks or months (at best.)

This is almost in line with things like SARS and MERS, but those are now far less widespread. During flu seasons, a temporary (partial) immunity that only lasts weeks or months is generally sufficient since the seasonal change tends to ratchet-down the spread (of the flu) anyway, so you don't need a long immunity period since the next flu you get is going to be different anyway...

With this stupid virus, we don't have enough data yet on how it weathers (literally) the change in seasons and we also don't know how fast you can be re-infected, especially by a different-enough mutation.

There have been numerous cases already of re-infection already, and also cases where they isolated multiple simultaneous infections of different strains in one patient. That one sucks hard, and you'd also expect a re-infection to be rather seasonal...kind of in line with mutations, like the flu, but this cocksucker virus is mutating like mad and isn't giving a flying fuck about whether or not it's "in-season" either... Influenza mutations take longer to circulate, but SARS-CoV-2 is way worse in many regards.

Re: Got Diagnosed With the 'Rona...
So here's the thing about these tests and the false negatives...

A family friend died a few days ago. He had three tests: two negatives and a final positive. The last test was too late and he was already severely compromised.


It started with him already being in the hospital for a different reason; he was tested twice while admitted. He was discharged and had severe symptoms within about two days. At that point he was re-tested (this time, positive) and readmitted to the hospital where he died days later...

His first two tests were probably false negatives!
 Quoting: AkashicRecord®


....I wouldn’t be so quick to make that assumption.

He ENTERED the hospital for a completely unrelated medical issue and had no CV19 symptoms. Yet when he EXITED the hospital, he began presenting with CV19 symptoms.

To me, it’s obvious his first mistake was going to the hospital at all.

My Nephew and his wife had symptoms of the Rona they got sent home from their jobs. they got tested and they tested negative. The doc told them they were going to treat as if it were the Rona and sent them home to quarantine until there temps were normal for a week. They are getting the Rona Pay now and are making more than their jobs....for the time they are off. OMG they live in Ill.

The ER was rather quiet, but they aren't letting people pile into waiting rooms at all. Everything is very methodical and coordinated. Many people wait in their cars and tons of work (like taking insurance information and demographics) is done via phone...even if waiting in a closed examination room, like I was.

But you don't HAVE the symptoms.

Maybe you're also not sick with Corona Virus - you might have tested positive from an earlier exposure. Tons of people in this country are going to test positive with exposures from MONTHS ago (and maybe before as I don't think this is "new"). Maybe you have something ELSE and it's just convenient for them to call it this. Sometimes they just don't know what you have.

The cold or flu never made me sick for over two weeks... When I'm sick, it's usually like this:

Flu, usually 3-5. 3 for quick recovery.

Colds, maybe 5-10...usually no more than 7. 5 for quick recovery.
