Day 14: Sharing my Covid-19 experience. Started with a slight runny tummy, thought it was nothing. For 2 days I started feeling very cold, second day a little more severe than the first day. Slight body aches, but I thought it was just the cold.
Left work early the Friday. Keep in mind that my temperature was taken daily (I dont trust those things anymore) and it was never more than 36.2, some days below 36. Got home, took a hot shower, Corenza C & Panado, nothing helped. The weekend was rough. Body aches, sweats,
freezing cold. One moment feeling fine, the next moment like something is taking over your body. Then my throat felt sore and it looked red inside. After this, the shortness of breath started. I have asthma and couldn't even inhale my pumps properly.

2. "“Things sort of spiraled out of control, and very clearly, many of these patients did not have to die because they would have been fine if they were hydrated and fed,” said Dr. Nguyen"

3. "A small French study found that “confinement disease” is likely more detrimental than COVID-19 itself. The April paper concluded that more than 24 deaths at a long-term care facility that staff believed were due to the virus were mainly from hypovolemic shock"
