What Coronavirus Symptoms Look Like, Day By Day

After being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19, it can take as few as two and as many as 14 days for symptoms to develop. Cases range from mild to critical. The average timeline from the first symptom to recovery is about 17 days, but some cases are fatal. Here's what it looks like to develop COVID-19, day by day.

    It can be overwhelming, I tell you. My husband and I are both in healthcare, we work in the hospital. Roughly 2 weeks ago, he started coughing less than 24 hrs from his shift at the hospital. He did 3 nights in a row. Chills then followed, later on elevated temperatures ranging from 99.8-101. At the onset of his symptom, he self-quarantined. He is staying in a room by himself. The fever lasted for about 3 days. He also had generalized aches, as if his body had been a punching bag. Round the clock acetaminophen seemed to have helped. Day 2 he had some stomach upset with diarrhea that lasted for a day. Day 4, I was able to get him tested at an urgent care facility. He had to wear a mask upon going out of the house and even when he exits his room. The myalgia was subsiding, the cough persisted. It was dry. By day 6 he started complaining of being congested and that he felt a slight chest pressure. Morning of day 7 he told me after breakfast that he felt short of breath. I assessed him, checked his vital signs and oxygen saturation. Everything appeared normal. I contacted our PCP via videocall so he can be virtually assessed. We have been in contact with our PCP since day 1. A little after midnight (day 8) he asked to be taken to ED as he couldn’t sleep and despite his efforts at pursed lip breathing, he still felt short of breath as if the air doesn’t fully enter his lungs. I wrote down whatever transpired since Day 1, his medical/ surgical history as well as the medications he’s on. In the ED, they took an Xray. He was sent home a few hours later. They didn’t check his blood work only advised to await for his swab result. He was given a decongestant. Day 9: he received a call from the the center, his test came back positive. He was advised to continue with quarantine. We informed our PCP with the advise to keep an eye on his symptoms even though he has not been febrile for a few days doesn’t mean that he’s infection free. Day 10 he started expectorating mucus, in small amounts. The once dry cough now productive. Today is day 12. He reported feeling better, his body aches is very mild, the cough is clearing. His daily regimen includes 2 g of Vit C, warm fluids (a concoction of ginger/lemon/honey), plenty of water, soups when I can manage to make, adequate nutrition, fruits and vegetables. Every other day since his fever broke, I had him take a warm shower. I’ve prepared steam inhalation for him as well. As much as I don’t want to worry, it can’t be helped. The anxiety can impede your good sense so it would help to approach the situation in a pragmatic way. If you focus on the worst, you’ll only feel hopeless. It is totally understandable to be worried though, I was cause he has other co-morbidities. But you have to be proactive and be emotionally strong. As for me, I’ve done my best to disinfect surfaces, door knobs, the bathroom and things. He has designated utensils to use and is kept in the room. The kids has been mostly cooperative especially with handwashing and keeping themselves healthy. although they have missed their Dad’s cuddles and hugs, they were understanding of our situation. Trying and difficult times we are in. May God have mercy and bless us all.

    Because your lung's bronchial tubes aren't pumpable like that........ you see the pressure in the plura an airtight membrane above the diaphragm and surrounding the lungs is below the normal pressure in the air thats why when u inhale your lungs get bigger and vice versa but if the lunges were pumped the plura could burst from a higher/lower than normal pressure thus causing a pneumothorax or if it ruptures a major artery found on the lungs it could cause a hemothorax

    Everybody chillax. If you're under the age of 60 the death rate is extremely low. Don't panic and do the research for yourself, look into the numbers. The virus spreads really quick, but if you're young and healthy you shouldn't be scared for yourself, be scared for the elderly who have a high risk of death. If you're someone who's freaking out, don't. Panic and fear makes people do stupid things, especially in groups. You should be concerned and prepared, but being terrified is unreasonable. No one is reasonable or intelligent when they're scared.

    I had the symptoms described in the video. I'm happy to share my solution. I crush a whole garlic, add cayenne. I do enough, enough of the crushed crushed garlic/cayenne with food, rice, chicken broth, pasta, scrabbled egg. I can do as much garlic/cayenne twice a day. I sweat out the virus during night sleeps. This gets into the small hairs of the digestive tract and cleanse the virus. Next, I'm an asthmatic so I use a nebulizer with inhalation solution Impratropium Bromide/Albuterol Sulfate when I have shortness of breath. Next I do use supplements, zinc, grape seed. Next, I practice the discipline of "Animated Laughter with Feelings", (on youtube.com) book "I Dare to Heal with Laughter". The repetitive "Animated Laughter with Feelings" cleanse the accumulated "Fear" (Face Everything and Rise). The result of the repetitive laughter is the dynamic release of the healing hormones, endorphins, opioids, T-cells, antibodies, anti-aging and serotonin.

    I’m gonna say what I gotta say. We have the worst government on planet earth why don’t the us government take action for once and close all streets and force people to stay home? If they do that then we could all go back to school, work, see our friends, etc. in 2-3 weeks max. The government is making this so much worse than what it should be if they shut down all flights a day before they did then we would be down to half the cases of COVID-19 in our country. Dr. Fauchi is one example of the many doctors/nurses not getting sleep because of this stupid virus some people are doing all they can to stay home and I’m glad but other stupid people think that it’s ok to have parties, go to the beach, go to their friends house, etc. that is why our government needs to send the military out to every city and forcefully make people stay in there homes for the good of our country.

    -Corona hysteria is perfect for restricting or abolishing civil rights. -Corona makes it possible for people to be voluntarily quarantined, which is just another form of detention. -Corona allows us to get used to increased police and military presence on our streets. -Corona ensures that people are no longer allowed or do not want to gather! Restriction on freedom of assembly (France's yellow vests wear out!) -Corona ensures that people can be vaccinated against their will and at the same time chipped (RFID). The constitutional "physical integrity of a human life" is then over. -Corona makes it possible to get rid of the cash under the pretext of infection. -Corona enables total surveillance to maintain public order. -Corona is the perfect alibi for the collapse of the financial system. So the real reasons and the real cause remain in the background.
