Just trying to get a pulse on actual known covid Kevin bacon style. I mean I'm super surprised that I don't or even heard of anyone. I've been to 48 state and 14 countries and no a lot of people so way surprised about it especially after reviewing the numbers. Hope all your friends and family stay safe and enjoy the holidays.
I'll preface my commentary by saying I've barely even been in this thread. Not since the beginning anyway.
I live in Ohio. I've had family members test positive for covid in the last six weeks and they're fine now.
The first was my 19yr old son. He's a collegiate wrestler, so him and most of all the team came down with it. It started when one of the wrestlers gf had symptoms of it (including the loss of taste and smell), and dude came to practice anyway. Anyway my boy got it and dealt with headaches for a brief time and lost his taste and smell for a month now. It's not completely back yet. Other than that he's perfectly fine. So that's a case of a person in superior shape dealing with it.
Then my aunt, uncle, and cousin living in the same household came down with it. They are 64, 76, and 41 yrs old respectively. None of them are a picture of health. My uncle is very overweight and has had multiple heart procedures. My cousin is a guy that screams heart attack waiting to happen, as he is like 6-2 385lbs or so smoking, drinking, eating anything without regard for the next day. Anyway they all reported very slight fevers but mostly just tired. That past after 4 days or so and now they're doing well. They told me they only took some aspirin during that time no antibiotics or vitamins.
So take that for what it's worth.
Lot of people have tragically fallen during this time and had covid. Deaths attributed directly to covid only is a whole other story unfortunately our government and agencies have refused to be forthright on, to the American people. That's a different discussion to be had.
