What were your symptoms?
Last week I was achy all over. This week I have a headache and feel lethargic. Wondering if I actually caught this thing. No fever or throat problems. My stomach has been nauseated lately too. I was reading some people don’t get a fever or sore throat.

Do some simple math yourself, don't watch the news! Look at population densities, and only active cases. Find the percentages. You'd be surprised just how low your chances of getting this thing are. We have nine active cases in our county of 22,000 people. And people freak out. Most cases are from people who new ahead of time they had been around someone in close contact who had it, ie family members etc. And then realize how many false positives are possible, and just how many deaths are being blamed on covid rather than the fact the person had congestive heart failure. They could have died from the flu just as easily. One ñews headline yesterday stated "Lexington cases are in the rise!!!" Ok Lexington has a population of like 350,000. There have been 1,129 cases. Maybe 300 active. That's 3 out of every 1000 people. Insanely low odds. I'm not saying it's a conspiracy at all but it is and has been blown up. It's the information the news and politicians don't tell you that is concerning. There's definitely a control factor. Breathe. If you don't have a fever, relax.

Here in Ireland we had zero deaths yesterday and 5 new cases. That is the whole Country. Over 95 percent of people infected have recovered fully. The active case number for the whole country is very low.

In talking to a number of people who don't even have anxiety, they had a few things they assumed was the start of the virus. It wasn't. This is just them hearing all the symptoms day in, day out for months now. The number of people tested in Ireland that came back negative is by far much higher than the overall number of people that had the virus since day 1. Lost count of those tested. Most were negative.

Just we hear about it so much. It can get into your mind. You can find yourself having similar symptoms. This is what we had a lot of in Ireland. They get tested and it comes back negative.

My parents had it, diagnosed a month ago. They had fevers for 12 days straight. They could barely move and lost their appetite and sense of taste.

I had some cousins come down with it. They all did well. One said it wasn't as bad as the flu, his wife was a little sicker but not much. It appears their 3 kids never got it. They were all quarentined at home. They figured the kids had already been exposed so made no attempt to isolate themselves from the children. The little ones never even had fever. My wife's great grandmother who is 101, thats right 101, got it, tested positive, was in the hospital 3 days, and was released back to the nursing home. For about a week, she acted puny, didn't eat much which caused her to lose weight but made a full recovery. But 3 others in the same facility tested positive and unfortunately passed. But all 3 had extensive medical issues and were in their 80s. They figure some of the workers more than likely brought the virus in. No visitors in or out for a month prior except for the workers allowed to come and go. Bad deal. The workers have family's and a life outside their job, they can't just live at their job. It's sad. It appears it effects people differently, but people with immunity issues or other health issues have a much rougher time with it.

A teacher at our school got it over spring break, along with her boyfriend and daughter. She is 39 years old and in good shape. She was sick for 3 weeks and now, 3 months later, still gets winded easily with exertion.

If I do have the corona virus, I haven't had any symptoms of it or any other contagious illness.

I've been taking all the precautions since this whole virus started up in America, such as wearing a mask, staying at least six feet away from others, and using soap as well as hand sanitizer.

Several of my friends and family contracted it in March when it first came here. Symptoms can vary from person to person. If you think you have it, speak to your doctor and they can advise you on whether they think you have it, etc. Remember, the majority of people who get it do not have a serious case.

Lots of new cases here in Ireland over the past month or so. But no deaths. Seems everybody catching it now are under 45 years old. Hence the zero death rate. My only thing is what our health board are classing as a case. Is all a bit odd at the moment. Nearly all cases since June didn't have to stay in hospital. So the hospitals are all but empty of Covid parients. Is like they downgraded what the virus is. Thus people are catching something. But back in March what they are catching today would not have been classed as the virus. To have so many new cases and zero deaths? All seems a little bit suspect to a lot of people. Old people are not catching it now. Why? Has the virus changed its mind about infecting old people? More our government wanting to dictate what younger people can and can't do. The virus is aimed at them and them alone now. If you really believe what we are been told. It is all a little strange.

Symptoms vary on person. Try to find remedies for your pains. If they do not work, then speak to a doctor about it.

About a month ago or so, I developed a cough as well as a scratchy throat. I also felt a little bit blocked up in my head.

Hence, I got myself tested for the coronavirus at a local community health center (outside of the building). It came back negative, fortunately for me. I didn't have the virus.

And shortly after getting tested, my symptoms went away and I have been just fine since.
