I live in the Seattle area. Ground Zero for the Coronavirus. Last week, I came down with every symptom of the disease. Fever, shortness of breath, coughing. I haven’t been confirmed by a doctor, because they won’t even test you unless you need hospitalization. But I’m sure it I had it, I stayed home from work, and now a few days later, I feel mostly fine.
What I want to do here is tell everyone who is otherwise healthy to calm down. It’s like the flu or a cold. In fact, maybe milder. So stop hoarding toilet paper and bottled water. What are you even doing?
Obviously this is a bigger deal for the elderly and people with other existing conditions. For the sake of those people, do everything you can to keep it from spreading. But if you’re otherwise healthy and just afraid of it, AMA.
