Coronavirus : «C'est brutal»: un homme qui a été testé positif au COVID-19 partage les premiers symptômes innocents qu'il a ressentis

27

Michael Bane, le vice-président de l'engagement des clients de 42 ans chez Deighan Law, LLC, était en bonne santé. Il pouvait faire 13 tractions et courir moins de sept milles. Une fois, Mike a même couru 6 miles d'un marathon avec un tendon partiellement déchiré au pied. Mike est aussi le type de gars qui se promène sur une cheville fracturée pendant deux semaines avant de déranger son médecin à ce sujet. Le dur à cuire était en forme. Mais le coronavirus l'a mis à genoux malgré tout.

Au début, Michael a essayé de continuer son travail et sa vie de famille, mais après un long et horrible combat, COVID-19 l'a finalement hospitalisé. Pour sensibiliser le public, il a partagé une histoire détaillée sur l'enfer vivant qu'il a traversé, et cela montre clairement à quel point le virus est vraiment brutal.

The United States just went through its deadliest day since the outbreak of the coronavirus, with 100 new deaths reported on Monday. Currently, one in three Americans have been ordered to stay home as health officials issue warnings about what the next days of the coronavirus pandemic will look like.

“It’s just going to get worse this week and worse next week,” Dr. Leana Wen, a visiting professor at George Washington University, told CNN. “How bad it gets depends on the actions that we each can take today.”

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization thinks the US could become the new centre of the global coronavirus pandemic. “We are now seeing a very large acceleration in cases in the US. So it does have that potential (to become the centre of the pandemic),” WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said.

So far, 46,481 people in the US have become infected with the virus and there have been 593 deaths, according to the latest data from John Hopkins University.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people should watch out for fever, cough, and shortness of breath which may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the coronavirus. The CDC also notes that if someone experiences emergency warning signs (including bluish lips or face, new confusion or inability to arouse, and persistent pain or pressure in the chest as well as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath), they should get immediate medical attention.

Those at a higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19 (people who have heart and/or disease, diabetes, and older adults) should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild.
