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

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 did it two times and got a seventy and a sixty five. ....... why bother.
the drinks at the bar were good.
I know we have tons of threads on here about Liposomal Vit C but it is interesting that you got treated with Vit C and recovered.

A virus cannot mutate its dead.
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!

Get tested for it if you can.
Almost 10 weeks into the pandemic, COVID-19 is continuing to surprise and baffle health experts.
In fact, experts' picture of exactly how COVID-19 might play out in the body is now quite different to what was thought as little as a few weeks ago, with some experts saying it could be better described as three different diseases.
We have known for a while that the mild to moderate form of the disease — a flu-like illness with fever, muscle aches and respiratory symptoms, or often no symptoms at all — is almost like "child's play" compared to the major damage to organs like the the lungs, heart, brain, and kidneys seen when COVID-19 becomes severe.
Umesh Gidwani, head of cardiac intensive care at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, says that trying to treat the severe form of the disease is like facing a terrifying fire, burning out of control.
