I'm not saying that there aren't long term effects, but here's my personal anecdote:
Around the end of June one of my neighbors actually tested positive for the 'rona. He's in his late 60's, so he was a little worried. Said it was
basically a head cold, and felt better in a week or so.
I was talking with one of my other neighbors, stating that I only knew one person "personally" that had gotten covid-19. He informed me, "Well, now
you know 2." He had it, too, but didn't have any symptoms at all. (in his 40's). He has a large family, but his wife and kids did not test positive,
only he did in his household.
So, later in September, my wife had some knee surgery scheduled, so she had to get tested before her procedure. We went and got her tested on a
Saturday (with zero symptoms). On Sunday they called to tell us her test came back positive. Monday she had a pretty high fever which worried me a
little bit with her asthma. (We're both 54). Myself and my 2 adult children that still live at home also got tested on Monday after her result. We all
had zero symptoms, and all of us tested positive. Put on your tinfoil hats, but none of us had any symptoms until after we got tested.
Anyway, I would have just thought it was the flu if I didn't know it was covid. Fever for maybe a day, dry cough for about a week. I did feel really
tired in week 2 of our quarantine, but nothing major. Luckily, I was already working from home, so not a big deal. It's been 6 weeks now, and none of
us have any lingering problems. We did stay away from my 80 year old parents just to be safe, and I think my Mom was more worried about it than I
That's what is so baffling, and who do you actually believe? None of us had any issues, yet others are heading to the ER and dying from this thing.
What is the truth? Did we just get lucky? Got a different strain? Conspiracy: did the test actually give it to us? So, now my area (Utah) has cases
spiking up and people are freaking out. I'm trying not to be cavalier about it 'cause it is serious for a lot of people (obviously), but part of me is
like, "What's the big deal? Been there, done that." (I also don't want to sound insensitive. I'm sure if my parents got it my perspective would be a
lot more serious because I think they would really struggle with it 'cause my Dad has copd, but that's what happens when you smoke 2 packs a day for
