Default Covid-19 Cases - Personal Stories of Infections

Plenty of banter on THT about the various ramifications of the coronavirus. Post here about family, friends, and friends of friends who you know dealt with a case. Iíll start with 2 -

A close friends grandmother passed away in Miami Beach in early February. She was never tested but described all the major symptoms, with the most prominent being inability to take a full breath. Granted she was in her 80s, but completely fit and full of life just prior to getting sick. Not to mention very close to all the people she left behind.

Second, a guy I used to go to the gym with. Middle aged, healthy, and regularly moved a lot of weight at Crossfit. Ended up at Jupiter Medical Center and said he thought he was going to die. Crazy because he was at a Yankees spring training game the day before becoming symptomatic. His story -

About a dozen people I know here in NJ. All confirmed positive tests, none died. None ended up in the hospital.

I know of an acquaintance who lost her elderly father and that of course was extremely sad.

I also know of two individuals who have directly confirmed with me the death certificates are being manipulated to reflect COVID19.

Two different neighbors on my street came down with it. One was a ER doc, the other possibly became infected from friends who recently traveled. Both ended up in ICU. About a 10 day stay in the hospital for each. Late 30’s and late 40’s healthy individuals.

High school friend of mine (Iím 62) felt lousy in January. Never went to the Doc. Recently tested positive for antibodies. Travels regularly for work in the Mid Atlantic region. Had been to Florida over Christmas.

Itís offensive to front line health care workers to suggest that there is a widespread conspiracy by doctors, nurses, and hospital staff to inflate Covid-19 death counts. Iím not saying it never happened anywhere, just that itís not an international, systemic plot. And since we know people have coronavirus antibodies from January and February illnesses, we can infer that many early Covid deaths were not counted.
There are actual people here who lost friends and family, so please go to another thread to minimize it.
I remembered another, I have a friend of a Customs and Border Protection Officer in Fort Lauderdale who died from it. Confirmed case, in his 50s, Navy Vet. Left behind a wife and young daughter -

One of my mechanics had it. Got it from a job site where he was running a car.
His symptoms included no taste, fever, headache, aches in joints but no cough. He felt like shit for about 4 days then got better over next 3.
He’s back to work now and feels great!

I get at least 3-4 notifications a day from job sites where workers from other companies are testing positive.

I wish that we all could feel comfortable with your results, but the accuracy of the tests are suspect.

Everything you've said on here is offensive in your 20 posts. Take your troll-food and go move it along to some other forum.

I can tell you cold hard facts I do know:

1) Local firefighter of a major city I personally know. Couldn't get in to administer care to a heart attack victim. This was due to protocol, red-tape, etc. He wanted to help, couldn't. Finally get in, find the man expired on the ground. Pathologist/examiner makes the determination. What went on the death cert? COVID19. Man never tested positive. None of the family tested positive.

2) Personal friend and client of ours, happens to be a medical doctor. Very high up in a regional hospital group and sits on the board. His mother was 102 and in a nursing home. He was allowed to visit her. Mother tells him "I just don't want to live through this whole ordeal." Never was sick, not tested, just old. She had been refusing to eat and drink in order to will herself off the face of the earth. Our friend tries to reason with her to not do this, she's not sick, she's going to be fine. Next morning, he gets the call that she passed. Several days later, death cert comes "COVID19" as the cause. He calls back and absolutely lays into the medical examiner as to why the cause of death was COVID19, being he saw her 12 hours before and she wasn't sick. Pathologist balks "Well...we....uhh..just assumed that....because it was going around."

Where exactly do YOU live? You seem to have a couple 2nd hand stories? I live in NJ outside the worldwide hotspot for the virus.

I just went to visit a buddy yesterday who had it a month ago....along with his girlfriend he lives with who is immuno-compromised. His mother who is also coincidentally immuno-compromised, had it. All 3 tested positive. My old client coordinator called us 2 weeks ago to tell us her whole family had it. She was diagnosed with lupus. She called us as a courtesy because she had all been in contact with us within the prior 7 days.

So please, please....do tell me EXACTLY what FIRST-HAND experience you have?

Or better yet, go back to whatever cave, bridge, or misinformation mill you came from.

This thread will be a great road map for the "contact tracing" corps we keep hearing about.

I am in the security related field. I am on a nationwide video conference call with my counterparts from all of the Americas. Very interesting to hear the differences in the attitude towards CV19 some on the west coast and NE tend to be the most sensitive about the virus and tend to be leaning towards favoring the lock downs vs the southeast and Texas seem to be in favor of moving back to some sense of normal. Some who have lost loved ones are obviously very sensitive on the issue.

Easy buddy. Re-read from the top. You can infer that Iím in FL, or read it in my bio to the left <.
I never claimed to have first-hand experience, that wasnít the point. My stories are second-hand, like most of yours. When someone tells you a story or you read about interactions you didnít experience yourself, thatís second hand, and itís just fine for this post. I also stated that Iím not denying some mis-coding of Covid deaths, Iím only saying itís not a wide ranging conspiracy. Medical professionals and coroners dont typically jeopardize their licenses or reputation, at least not on the mass scale that has been insinuated. If Iíve posted any misinformation, let me know and Iíll remove it along with an apology. Iím working on beefing up my post count. Back to the topic...

Have at it! The major news outlets love the fear mongering.

Asked around to all me friends and family. No one has had it, no one knows anyone who’s had it. I work in a hospital. People have it here. Seems to be poor, heavy and or old. Mostly old followed by Latinos... huge amount of people at Walmart and Home Depot’s .... most our numbers coming from the nursing home unfortunately.
