Day 5 report for my family Covid event. 6-year-old son is almost entirely over it. Likely picked it up last Sunday so a little less than a week for him though overall his symptoms were mild. Wife tested positive Tuesday and is slowly starting to feel better. I'm experiencing fatigue and body aches primarily, though I did pop a low-grade fever overnight that resolved itself without meds. Hoping to be back to some semblance of normalcy by Monday.

No one is bothering to be examined for long term health effects that would show up on ultrasound, MRI, etc. They just assume that because the symptoms manifested externally as a cold, they're good. And if they develop long covid, are too embarrassed to talk about it especially if they've announced to everyone that their initial case was so mild.

If yours continues to progress like mine did you'll be on the mend soon enough :h5:

I pray that you don't get the unending runny nose I got for 24 hours though. I've never had a runny nose like that before and I hope to never experience it again :rofl:

Funny; that's exactly what's happening to us. My wife and I woke up this morning feeling 50% better, but our noses won't stop running. After the past two days, I'll take it ;)

I literally know only one person with long Covid (hair loss, and it may not even be the direct cause) It’s not as prevalent as you believe.

The Lancet paper I posted on the previous page had over 76,000 participants

12% of the diagnosed seems extremely high, esp since it doesn’t take into account people who were asymptomatic and didn’t even realize they had Covid. Not to mention it only measures 90-120 days after infection and no longer.

It also began Nov 2019 and continued Thru Feb 2022. Vaccination wasn’t prevalent until around Mar/April 2021.

It was 12% of people who were diagnosed with COVID, not 12% of the population.
