On March 8, 2021 I experienced problems with breathing. I experienced a lot of pain in my ribs and chest. I was rushed to the hospital. My doctor told me to undergo X-ray test and blood test (vein). My results revealed that my heart was ok, but my C-reactive protein was at level 11. Oxygen was 97 level. The doctor told me this was serious infection. They prescribed five day injection doses, erythromycin and aspirin. After having the first three injection doses, I relaxed.
