    I have been laid off work but it was expected, temporary closures while trying to stop the spread

    It is so scary and frightening how fast it is spreading and the high death rate

    All I can do is pray, take care everyone

    Germany is taking some of the cases from France and Italy as we have beds and have a good hold on the virus. Someone here said when they got it, everyday a questionnaire was sent to him and he had to describe how he was feeling. They do this will all infected and if symptoms get worse, you are asked to go straight to hospital. This and the fact that most infected here are 30-55 is the reason for our low mortality rate

    I have copied this from a Facebook post which I think might be useful recognising some of the symptoms this virus can show in us:


    Steph Freeman
    17 hrs
    So most of you know I have been confirmed as having COVID-19. The big thing I have noticed is the government saying about the cough and breathlessness and the high temps but there are other things to look out for especially in the early days before the respiratory symptoms start so I have done a day to day dairy so that people know how I actually felt before the main symptoms started. This will hopefully stop people infecting people when they are not sure but feel a little unwell.

    Day 1 headaches and feeling tired

    Day2 headaches and eyes hurt, like bad hay fever, they were watery stingy and itchy.

    Day 3 really tired and throat was really dry and a little sore

    Day 4 a bit of a cough and a slight temperature

    Day 5 dry cough a little worse than day before but not too bad and felt a little dizzy, very tired, felt run down and getting cold sweats

    Day 6 cough worse but like a flu cough annoying but with rest and water could cope and still getting headaches and eyes hurting.

    Day 7 tired, cough feeling a little better and no temps
    Bit of headache, felt like I was over the worse

    Day 8 woke up feeling really bad cough really bad temp still not very high only ever been between 37.9 and 38.3, chest feeling tight and couldn’t stop coughing, tired beyond words, dizzy feel like I can’t breathe, deep dry cough headache and achy from coughing and through feeling crap, eyes sore as well.

    Day 9 confirmed as having Coronavirus and a secondary chest infection so now on antibiotics and in heavy isolation.

    Day 10 chest feeling tight, head ache, very tired, coughing more, high temps (luckily I’m controlling them with regular paracetamol) eyes feel heavy and generally feel like I can’t do anything.

    Day 11 cough feeling a little better but chest very heavy and tired just to talk, hard to catch breath even when going to toilet, drinking plenty of fluids and taking antibiotics and regular paracetamol to keep temp down.

    Luckily I isolated myself on day 1 but now have to isolate for an extra week on top of the 14 days, I hope this will help people to think twice before going out if they are unsure if they actually have symptoms as trust me you don’t want this. I have so far as of day 13 been able to manage my symptoms at home, where I feel at the moment is the best place for me. I have strict instructions that if I feel any worse or struggling to keep my temperature down with the regular paracetamol or get that breathless that I struggle to talk in sentence that I should be calling for help.


    Please all, stay home, I know you are or at least were allowed to go out once a day to exercise ... you can exercise at home and open the windows or go into the garden if you have one, limit as much contact with the outside world as you can .. Stay Safe !!!

    That's the sad reality. They have only so many beds and medics. If it was a battle field, the medic would make the call as they thought had a chance to survive
