A First-Person Description of the Covid Virus

Vin Prest on “Life is a Rusty Rollercoaster” wrote this vivid account of his battle with Covid. Since his is the only detailed report I’ve read that was told by someone who actually experienced the disease, I’m reblogging it here. I think, given the underrating of the experience by our President, that it is important that people hear about the first-hand experience of someone else:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Good. It needs to get out there. It’s true Vin had a bad heart, but the description of what others were going through as well is so horrendous. I think we’ve all had it in our minds that maybe it isn’t that bad–even though we know it is–because of Trump’s insidious statements. People need to hear the full story. Yes, in some the symptoms are mild, but millions have died as well.

        I rather expect that he’s one of the first few who have endured the long-term response to the disease who have also recovered to a point of writing about it. For maybe the last three months or so, I’ve heard that there might be long-term effects, but not much more than that — we’re now still only 9 or 10 months into it, and the bulk of the cases only86 months or less ago! This may be just the first of many ~ ~ ~ It’s also an example of why I am particularly concerned about the damage the virus does to the young — it’s not just once-and-done, probably for anybody who catches it!
