One of the Australia guys I play golf with (Bob) got sick in October 2019 as did I. I waited (it is a guy thing) until I had a little over 103 F temperature and was having problems feeling like I was getting any oxygen to my blood. Since I play golf everyday it was noticeable that my strength was waning .

I went to the hospital and after several test they thought I had pneumonia and treated me with a couple of big I.V.s one of which was Vitamin C which I had requested. I spent 5 days in and out of the hospital getting and I.V. everyday and was OK and back playing golf within the week (I may be old but most people think I am in my late 50s or early 60s as I do not have a beer gut and do exercise, "golf" almost everyday ). I just figured since I am in my 70s that I was unlucky to catch the bug but lucky I recovered as fast as I did.. Now two months later Bob and I both had a relapse. Bob was in Australia when he got sick the second time. After many test they said he had COVID-19 !! He was treated and released after two miserable weeks in the hospital. He returned in country in December before the international flights were shut down.

During my relapse I did the I.V. thing as before (same doctor and hospital) however since I had not waited very long my recovery was much quicker as far as feeling well, so again I was back playing golf within 7 days. Here they were not keyed on to COVID-19 back in October as they were still allowing 1000s of international arrivals from all over the world but especially from CHINA.

I just finished 18 holes of golf at my local course and on number 18 Bob who had just arrived informed me he was back from Australia since December and filled me in on what his doctors had said. I would have never have thought I had COVID-19 but we both had the same symptoms and with the information Bob's Australian doctors provided it just may be I am a COVID survivor ?

Someone will be wondering what type of antibiotic was in the I.V.s ? I do not know other than it was some good stuff !

Bob was wearing a mask and doing social distancing today as he said since we have had one or two strains of COVID, there was still a chance we could get it all over again as the virus has mutated.. YUK !

Just a story, so believe it or not, but I found the whole thing rather interesting.

I have heard of other cases of people who were sure that had the virus before January. There was even a French hospital with the hard evidence of Xrays of patients with COVID-19 lesions in their lungs, from back in February (of course they weren't diagnosed as COVD-19 until late last month).

What this does indicate, is that it may not have actually started in China. Of course, every time I mention this as a possibility, it gets political. LOL.

Also, the incredible mutational instability of the virus means that there must be thousands of sub-strains, not all of them viable, by now (In Iceland, after only one month after the first case, with an infected base of just 1,500, there were more than 40 observed strains).

Huh.....you play golf every day? How could anyone play that much golf? I did it two times and got a seventy and a sixty five. The guys I played with couldn't believe it was my first and second game. Not my cup of tea, if I could only shave five to ten off my score after playing for ten years, why bother. I did enjoy driving the cart though and the drinks at the bar were good.

That is pretty good for a beginner for 9 holes. We play 18 holes ...
I am not a lover of golf (probably why I score as good as I do) but, if I did not play I would lounge around the house under the air conditioner, watching T.V., getting fat and would probably already be dead from lack of exercise.

So to each his own or whatever make one happy.

I personally get a great deal of satisfaction from hearing the wails of anguish, and looks of defeat from my opponents as I take their money ! hahahah we pay double for birdies and 3x for eagles..! Hole in one you do not have to buy everyone a drink... Very civilized.

I really want to do an antibody test to see if I had it as well. December I was hit with a real severe cold that lingered for several weeks. Really kicked my ass.

Then right before we started to shut everything down, a week prior in early March, maybe late February I was sick again but not as severe as my previous stint. With this one I was just extremely tired like I had never really had before. I kept myself home for that whole week as the Covid was starting to stir that it could be hitting the US hard. The next week my work had mandatory work from home and my wife got it and had the same symptoms and was also in and out of fever.

I also know someone that was at the Super Bowl and they got real sick right after. Their antibody test came back that they did not have Covid. So who knows...

Now to the golf. I miss playing golf, haven't picked up my clubs in several years even though I'm only a few miles away from a course. I never played a lot but it is just fun to go out and relax and have a few drinks. Will probably dust off the clubs this summer though! FORE!

Both my Mother in Law and my maternal Grandmother passed late last year. Both were in ill health for a number of years and my Mother, a medical professional for over 40 years has suspicions at least one might have had COVID-19.

How does what you state show anything about where the virus started?
Everything you state just shows that it's likely the virus has been wide spread longer than we've been told to believe.

Forgive me for being dense--no caffeine yet--but you mention that people were sure they had the virus before January (2020). My stepdaughter thinks she and her family had it in December FWIW; her description sounds 100 percent like it. Anyway, then you mention that a French hospital has evidence of it from February. February 2019 or February 2020?

Oops I mis-typed, it was from November 2019, the scans were before the first 'official' Chinese patient zero presented to hospital.

Except for laying some sort of blame, assuming that someone 'did' this, what does it matter to the process of dealing with the current situation.

You see, back a little while in history, there were 'experts' who claimed that the Jewish outsiders in their towns were using witchcraft to poison the good people of the town with the Black Plague. That helped everyone involved?

as you were hospitalised - and presumably had bloodwork done

why didnt your doctors identify that you had an [ to them @ that time ] - unknown pathogen ???

hear is the obvious question - how do you think chinese doctors identified the first N19COVID patient known to them ?

They did blood test but their biggest concerns were my lungs. One of the specialist actually wanted to tap my lungs and drain them....to which I said, "lets wait and see how the I.V.s work first." I went through the lung tapping with a wife that was deathly ill. It worked for her but I was not at that stage IMO so no thank you.

The first hospital I went to (I went to two) said it was a bad case of bronchitis and gave me some pills to take after an x-ray and blood test was administered ... three or four days later I went to the other hospital that fixed me with the high fever and was lucky I did for they went right after the fever and the I.V.s ....

The first hospital is supposedly the biggest and best (for profit) and they have many major outlets in most large cities... I had two friends who worked there is why I went. After the fact even my friends who work there said the hospital sucks, go away to anyplace else.. One friend is a doctor (looking for another hospital to work at) and one friend receives payments for the hospital. I wish I had asked them before I went.

I would not take a dog there now after mine and other people's experiences. They charge twice as much and offer none of the cure... IMO anyway which is not only my opinion judging by what others have said.

Ah that’s because you have 5G enabled on your phone. Disable it and you don’t get covid19 because it’s a bacteria activated by 5G dontchaknow! 100% science


No seriously, glad to hear you’re doing better. I think I too got it late Dec/early Jan but need the antibody test to know for certain.

A virus cannot mutate its dead.

Golfing every day and you don't like it in the first place? Are you insane?

I had a version of the corona in 2012 that put me down for 3 months. Heart stopped twice, lungs filled with fluid, now I've got lesions in my lungs and man is it hard to breathe sometimes, I hate the feeling.

We had much the same thing at work. People were sick for weeks in October and November. I'm not sure if I had it because my body temp is low to start with (usually 96.3-6), so a fever gets me to 99 degrees and with my other issues, I feel sick most of the time anyways but felt like real crap back in late November like I had a cold but it never affected my sinuses.

Semantics. A virus changes if necessary in order to replicate. Call this process what you want, but it does seek to exist and make more of itself. Alterations based on its environment/host achieve that!

What CAN mutate its dead ? I mean, if something is dead how can something else mutate it? Mutate it into what, anyway?

Your post doesn’t make sense
