My daughter, @cjanecrowell (who gave me permission to relay this) lives in Nashville & got really, really sick in mid-January. She said she felt like there were shards of glass in her throat, which turned into pneumonia within 48 hours. She couldn't breathe. She was hospitalized.
They sent her home with an inhaler and antibiotics. Back to the ER once more after that. Really scary. In April, when Covid was still not that widespread in Tennessee, but we were all aware of it, she decided to get her antibodies checked, just in case. They were sky high.
She got tested again, just to make sure. Same results.The doctor was sort of excited-- she was her first case with positive antibodies. Chelsea still had breathing problems. She ran tests, then said, 'I'm sorry, but I have no experience with post-Covid lungs.'
Chelsea has other lingering symptoms. It hasn't been easy for her. The point is: the numbers are wrong. NO ONE was aware of community spread in Tennessee in January, and if it was there, it was everywhere.
It's possible-- probable-- that thousands of lung ailments and other illnesses were misdiagnosed. The numbers are much higher than we think. And it's not because of 'too much testing.' (p.s. this is not my daughter who was yelled at for wearing a mask, also in Tennessee.)
It's shocking/not shocking how many comments here are from people who had similar symptoms, or knew someone with similar symptoms, in December, January, February. It was already widespread by the time the lockdowns started.
