I personally believe that I know someone. It is a personal friend of mine, whom I have been treating since February (one of the early US cases,
located in Rhode Island, USA). This person has not been officially 'tested' (test kits were scarce back in February), but empirically I believe this
is a positive case due to symptoms, with a greater than 90% chance that I am right, statistically.
They got 'a flu-like illness', it turned into a chest pneumonia, I prescribed azithromycin, they got better even though they did not think the
azithromycin helped, it came back, and now I have them again taking azithromycin (to keep them from getting a secondary bacterial infection). I tried
to also prescribe chloroquine based on advice from TD early, but their pharmacy was backordered, and it was impossible to get. Rhode Island isn't
exactly a Mecca for malaria, or rheumatoid arthritis apparently
This patient is a 49 year old female smoker, with multiple sclerosis, but no other predisposing conditions to severity.
This person has had the classic symptoms, including loss of taste, and loss of smell (anosmia), fever, and dry cough initially. They also seemingly
spread it to their cat, which they slept face to face with nightly, and then the cat started wheezing, and still is wheezing and lethargic to this
time intermittently. The patient is better overall comparatively since, but is still battling a feeling of 'pressure in the chest', and a cough, that
is somewhat occasionally productive. I also have this patient taking max vitamin C and vitamin D. By now, this person will most likely live without
going to the ICU, but it isn't over yet for them either. This Covid-19 is a serious bitch of an illness for some people....
