What Coronavirus Symptoms Look Like, Day By Day

After being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19, it can take as few as two and as many as 14 days for symptoms to develop. Cases range from mild to critical. The average timeline from the first symptom to recovery is about 17 days, but some cases are fatal. Here's what it looks like to develop COVID-19, day by day.

    So let's say you develop cold like symptoms. Cold symptoms that you have experienced many times before whenever you get a cold. Runny nose, sneezing, mild cough, NO FEVER, mild headache, post nasal drip but NO BODY ACHES OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH, OR LOSS OF SMELL. You pretty much believe you have a cold. I can get through a cold in about 3 days by taking Zinc at the sign of the 1st symptom. Should I still self quarantine for 14 days even if I feel recovered after 3 days?

    I remember back in 2002-2003, I caught something that I never want to have again, I coughed so hard I broke a rib! I couldn't sleep for more than 1/2 hr! I'd wake up gasping for air! Lasted about a month! I went later to a pharmacy and when I walked by the perfume section it took my breath away! It was like breathing in icy air! And I rarely get sick! When I do, it's usually gone in a day or two! Antibiotics cured it but I never found out what it was! The weird thing is that when I constantly coughed nothing came up, until the antibiotics kicked in! At the end everything spewed up at once from my lungs!

    What absolutely makes not sense is for the whole Humanity to QUARANTINE FOR 2 YEARS (hopefully) until the vaccine is ready. Governments need to understand that confinement will be somehow successful in preventing the number of spreads, but a huge cost, so high that the economy can´t keep up with it for as much as 2 years. This virus spreads so easily that once the contagion curve slows down (or overcomes the famous "peak" everyone's talking about), the social distancing measures WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO WITHDRAW. 1 infected person is enough for the whole world to be infected again once the quarantine is releived. The solution? DIFFERENTIAL CONFINEMENT. This virus is nothing but a flu, except for the elderly (>60 aprox.) and people with previous conditions. They have a much higher fatal risk and the associated need of using the HealthCare systems (which are eventually collapsing worldwide). What if we implemented COMPULSORY confinement ONLY for the elderly, people with previous conditions and the responsibles for taking care of them (let's say, workers in nursing homes and close relatives living with high risk population)? First, we will take out of the equation this high risk population, the number of deaths will reduce a 95% (only 5% of the deaths produced by COVID-19 are under 60 and most of them rather because of the saturation of the HealthCare system than the disease itself). Second, I repeat, CORONAVIRUS IS NOTHING BUT A FLU FOR THE REST OF THE PEOPLE. Taking out of the equation the high risk population (that need the HealthCare system mostly), if the virus spreads among the rest of the population, it will take nothing but Paracetamol and resting for a week at home to overcome it. Moreover, the low share of people that will need the HealthCare system, will be able to do so without the current saturation (in Spain where I am from, doctors are currently deciding who to save due to capacity constraints). Without the risk population exposed, the people in need for HealthCare line will fall again below the national Sanitary limit, receiving adequate treatment and cutting drastically the number of deaths, even among younger population. Finally, it will allow for the economy to resume normally (as most of the active workforce worldwide is below 60) and the threat of massive layoffs will disappear. Unemployment grants will be saved and the budget for clinical research will be much higher. In addition, it will allow for a natural immunization of the whole population. As more and more healthy people overcome the disease, higher shares of the population are immunized and thus, the ways of spread of the virus are cut with the minimal impact to the economy. There's no doubt that the only solution to this pandemic is the vaccine. What I propose is a matter of impact reduction, as the aftermath can be monstruous following the current strategy. It is a virus extremely hard to stop. LET'S KEEP SAFE THOSE WHO SUFFER MOST FROM IT, BUT THE ECONOMY ALIVE BY THE REST OF US!
