Have you guys seen a lot of random unexplained viral infections this year affecting the upper respiratory system? More than usual I mean, of people who aren't positive for anything on the normal flu test?
I've had this theory for a few days now that this shit has been here for awhile and everyone has or has had it. We've heard for awhile now how this is an extra bad flu year and I've heard so many anecsotes of people who have had a weird viral infection that they "just can't quite shake".
I feel the same way, around 2-4 weeks ago, myself and an entire warehouse of about 50-60 workers depending on the night, all got sick, I mean everybody, some worse than others but we all had the same symptoms, dry cough, fever, body aches and difficulty breathing.
I felt I got it pretty bad, I was sick for 3 1/2 weeks, the first 2 weeks was pure hell, constant dry cough, night sweats multiple times, terrible fever.
One night it snowed really bad and I had to shovel some snow, only took about 20 mins but I was absolutely destroyed, I could barely breathe, felt like I was going to pass out and it started getting very difficult to breathe, I started choking and coughing, my eyes burst with water, it legit scared the hell out of me, luckily my wife had an inhaler, I used that and it helped me breathe. The last week and a half it SLOWLY started going away.
I literally felt like I was going to die, I was so messed up, I can easily see how an elderly person or somebody with existing health conditions can die from this.
I truly believe its been here and has been for a while and we were just getting told it's a severe flu this year and let it run its course. We just haven't been getting tested until recently.
You blokes do know this virus was first identified in Dec 19 right?
Not in the US it wasn’t.
You’re right the first case wasn’t on US shores until January.
