I’m pretty positive this is COVID-19. I was fine Wednesday, and Thursday I felt feverish (no fever) and had chills, sore throat, cough, wheezing, body aches and headache. It’s felt like day one every day since the virus started and I’ve been on prednisone and antibiotics since Thursday late afternoon. I’m going for COVID testing tomorrow. I feel very run down. I have eosinophilic asthma and COPD, and take bi-weekly injections of Dupixent, so my immune system is weak.

Use 300 mg aspirin dispersed solution to gargle throat to 'kill' or reduce the effect of COVID-19 virus during incubation period.

I am a CO1 applicant. After 2 days of the interview and exam process, I got some colds and I was so much worried, especially that I could feel the heat in my body, but the temperature reading was 37 degrees only. There were times that I get paranoid that maybe I have the coronavirus. Wonder if I need to have a test for the coronavirus.

I coughed when I woke up the day before, today the fever started to rise, then rose to 39 degrees. But I don’t have a headache. Our neighbors may be afraid of us if I go to the doctor and I am worried.

I woke up with a cough and felt chills and a bit cold. Although, I protect myself and wear a mask and gloves; I did not want to stay stagnant and do nothing about it. This way I can protect myself and other loved ones around me. I immediately attended Urgent Care and the physician asked if he May test me for COVID. I said Sure. The swab up my nostrils felt uncomfortable, however I allowed the doctor to proceed. My results wear negative. If you feel symptomatic please get medical attention.
