Share your experience

I guess I got infected at the birthday party of my niece. We were just cousins and close friends in there. Later, three of us started getting a fever and cough. Next day was body pain and a weird feeling not willing to do anything. I have had a fever but I was never this lethargic. We got tested after 3 days of symptoms and we were COVID positive. One of my cousins was hospitalized as he needed respiratory support. I and the other one got well with medicines at our home.

It’s been over 3 months since my test came negative. But I'm not as fit as I was before COVID. Maybe 70%-80%. I can't run more than 2 minutes in a single go. Neither I can focus much on my work because of that mild lingering body pain. I'm attending the rehab centre recently opened in my town. I hope it will help.

One morning I woke up with body pain. I also had a cough. I was not feeling to work from home also so I rested for the day. Next day I had a fever, so I started reading symptoms of Coronavirus. After reading I observed I was also losing my smell. By next day my fever was 102. So we contacted the doctor who asked for corona test. Next day I got tested and the result came out positive. After 3-4 days I felt little breathing problem, but it was every less and went in 2 days. By 26 I was feeling well and the doctor suggested to test again which came negative.

From day 1 when I got a cough, I isolated myself. I guess that is why nobody else in my family got the infection.

Do you still have any symptoms?

No

Take all the precautions that you can.

I was following almost all precautions. I met a neighbour while evening walk. We started some discussion and to continue I went his home for tea for merely 15 minutes. After 3 days, he developed many symptoms and later was found positive. I was very scared of getting infected and felt I should have said no for that tea.

After about 9 or 10 days of meeting him, I got severe fever. As I was a primary contact, I was tested. The test came positive and I can not explain to you how I felt after that. 2 days from test to result and a few hours after result I was totally panicked. When I reached hospitals, doctors explained me very well that I will get well. He asked me if I had any other disease and I said no. Doctor assured me I will be totally fit and will walk back home soon. Meeting doctors and watching people leaving hospital was very relaxing and i started feeling relaxed. After a few days, I came to know an uncle in hospital aged 64 died of corona. That was only death I came to know during my hospital time.

My fever lasted for 4-5 days. I never had any other severe symptoms and was sent home after 1 week of my fever was gone without any test. We are 2 people in home and my wife never had any symptoms. I'm going back to work but I still feel very lethargic most of the day since I got infected. Rest all is good.

Do you still have any symptoms?

Yes

If yes, what are those symptoms?

I'm tired for almost whole day. I was not like this before getting infected.

Any other remarks?

Please stay safe. If you have any symptoms isolate and get tested. And if you got corona infection don't worry, most likely you will get well. Just that you might have some remaining symptoms after getting virus free.

I was having the regular symptoms. Physically the disease haven't affected me a lot. 5 - 10 days from the onset of symptoms was quite tricky. I was panicking those days because of other's experience saying they are the crucial days. I was overthinking a lot during those days. After that things were normal for me.

Do you still have any symptoms?

No

If yes, what are those symptoms?

Any other remarks?

Please don't discuss Covid19 fatality related stories to Covid19 patients either recovered or just started. By doing so you are mentally disturbing them.

In my store, likely from a customer

What were your initial symptoms?

Cough, Fever

I was wondering how I got infected but after reading this blog, I got some idea. I run a store in a small town in MP. Although I tied a rope to not let customers come in, some people don't listen and still rush in suddenly. I always used a mask. But when there was nobody around, I slide it down to my neck. So I think I inhaled virus left by the customer that was flying in the store as my shop have no ventilation system. Or I inhaled virus dropped on my neck when I wore the mask back. After taking all possible precautions I can think of these two reasons.

Anyways, I got fever and cough. fever was strong. I was in hospital for a week or so.

Now its above a month I'm good but some people are still scared to come close to me. I guess those people should understand that now I'm corona free. I have already been through a lot of tension and these people are giving me more tension. Looking at this behaviour, I don't want more people to know I got infected, so not sharing my name.

People who are corona negative will not infect you. Don't be scared of them. We have already suffered a lot.
