So this is a new account because it's been to long for me to remember my log in, but I just read what your wife had happen and wanted to share something that happened to me. The saturday before last I came home from fishing and felt terrible, I could feel my blood pressure in my head and felt like I had a head cold and at times felt short of breath, I have equipment also and my O2 saturation was fine but pulse rate was 113. The following day I still felt terrible but went to work assuming I was having a panic attack which I get sometimes due to PTSD from working as a paramedic for 16 years, I quit last year due to anxiety. Anyways I'm at my new job and I feel terrible I'm having hot flashes and weird random chest pains which due to my experience as a medic I know are not cardiac in nature but are more like lung pain that comes and goes when I exhale, these pains are really minor and you could almost miss them, but I stuck it out at work and finished up the day, I get home and I sit on my bed and my pulse is racing and I decide to go to the ER. Upon arriving I have no fever but my blood pressure is 230 over 160, and they do a full cardiac work up, they find no blocks or issues with my heart, they give me an IV and meds to lower my blood pressure and give me a prescription for blood pressure meds. They did a chest x ray, blood test and tell me everything looks good. I noticed for the next few days I felt like I was on the verge of getting a cough and sore throat, almost like a bad allergy day, I never found a fever when checking but the first day I felt like I had one. But one thing I noticed was the slight chest pains I was having reminded me of the pluritic pain I experienced years ago when I had pnuemonia, just less severe. For the next few days afterwords the pains continued and I was exhausted, I could not sleep enough, but now the pains are gone and I feel a lot better. Through this whole ordeal it felt like my body was fighting something. It was just wierd how fast my symptoms developed and how fast they went away, I did not get tested for the virus and the county I live in is trying really hard to keep their confirmed cases down so it's difficult to get tested, just FYI I'm right outside of the SF bay area where there are a lot of confirmed cases. But it's a strange ordeal and I wonder if maybe I caught the virus and was lucky enough to not get major symptoms other then my blood pressure, one more thing to add, since then everyone in my house has come down with a cough and sore throat, no fevers so their doctors won't test them and they all seem to be recovering.

I've been an occasional lurker here for well over a decade but never felt compelled to post as I didn't have any real insight on anything. Damnit jim I'm a nurse not a ufologist!
The rich and famous being tested is pretty bs, but I think it could be justified that they travel internationally and contact more people than most. Also money helps.
As of why it's being so overblown I have three theories
1. Mass quarantine recommendation is purely to avoid a rush on hospitals
2. It's worse than we are being told
3. We're in the end game of globalist takeover
Hope my first theory is correct

WTF is going on?
It's almost as if they don't want everyone tested because the mortality rate would drop and they wouldn't be able to cause this mass panic with the media. Heaven forbid there is toilet paper on the shelves

As quickly as we are being told this disease spreads, I think if the real numbers were in the mortality rate would look similar to the common flu.
We can’t have everyone believing this isn’t serious when we want to quarantine the world.
Maybe I will prove to be wrong. But I am on the something smells fishy boat with you.
